Lanwades Stud announces 2012 fees

IN a day that has seen a crescendo of stallion fees announced, Lanwades has become the latest farm to release its stallion prices for 2012.

And in asimilar trend to most other farms, its fees are basically unchanged for next spring.

Sir Percy, the former champion juvenile and Derby winner who has enjoyed a fine year with his first crop of runners, has been left on his 2011 and 2010 fee of £6,000.

The son of Mark Of Esteem has had one Listed winner, one Listed placed horse and ten winners this season. His yearling average was 35,931gns this autumn (up from 26,451gns in 2010), with a top price of 260,000gns given for his colt out of Bombazine. He was bought by Tony Nerses, who also purchased the sire's colt out of Tiger Spice for 110,000gns.

Archipenko, the son of Kingmambo who has had two seasons at stud, has been given a price reduction of a £1,000 to £5,000, while Selkirk, whose Nahrain finished second in the Breeders' Cup Fillies' and Mares Turf, is listed as "on application". The 2011 fee for the leading stallion was £20,000, but he has been suffering from fertility issues for the last two seasons.

Announce, the sire's other expected runner at Churchill Downs, was withdrawn on vetrinary grounds before the start of the race after colliding with the veterinary truck parked on the track.

The fee for the 21-year-old Hernando has been listed as private as it was in 2011.

The farm is running a prize draw with two nominations to Archipenko and two nominations to Sir Percy up for grabs. Go to  www.lanwades.com to find out more.
