Araafa's fee lowered
to £9,000

ARAAFA will stand at a reduced fee of £9,000 next year. The dual Group 1-winning son of Mull Of Kintyre stood the past season at Plantation Stud for £12,000.

According to a stud spokesperson, the current economic climate and its effects on the bloodstock industry prompted Plantation to cut the stallion's fee.

Araafa's first crop will be yearlings in 2009.
