Star Witness fee to be set after he runs at Ascot

GOLDEN Slipper winner Stratum, who sired the winner of the same race, Crystal Lily, with  his first crop, will cover this southern hemisphere season at a fee of Aus$55,000 (£35,462/€39,882), down $5,000 on last year.

The sire of this season's  Group 2 Sires Produce Stakes winner Running Tall is one of 10 sires lined up for Widden Stud for 2011.

They include Royal Ascot-bound Star Witness, whose 2011 fee has still to be determined. "Star Witness will be heading to Royal Ascot as planned with his final service fee to be confirmed in due course, although we are still taking bookings to him at this time and breeders that get in early will be rewarded," said Widden Stud's Anthony Thompson.

"Widden Stud has a reputation for setting realistic service fees and we believe the 2011 roster offers breeders plenty of value in a competitive market place. "
