Strike heads Lane's
End roster at $85,000

FORMER American champion sire Smart Strike will head the Lane's End Farm roster next season at $85,000.

The figure represents a rise on the 2011 fee of $75,000 commanded by the stallion, who is rising 20-years-old.

Another stallion to have undergone an increase for 2012 is Candy Ride, whose fee has been raised from $40,000 to $50,000. The son of Ride The Rails is the sire of six Grade 1 winnersincluding last year's Malibu Stakes hero Twirling Candy, who enters stud alongside his sire in 2012.

Also new to the Lane's End roster this year is the Grade 1-winning miler Courageous Cat, a brother to After Market whose fee will be set following his run in the Breeders' Cup Mile, and promising first-crop sire Shakespeare, who returns to Kentucky following two seasons in Florida.
