Florida-based Wildcat Heir fee set at $10,000

WILDCAT HEIR heads the 2011 stallion roster for Brent and Crystal Fernung's Journeyman Stud in Florida. The son ofForest Wildact stood for $6,500 this year, but his first runners to hit the track have made a positive start.

Following a first-crop that yielded 39 winners, this year Wildcat Heir had seven stakes winners, and was the leading sire by stakes winners and total earnings with $4,243,030 from only two crops of racing age.

Brent Fernung said: "We're excited to be able to offer Florida breeders such a top-notch stallion like Wildcat Heir. He typifies what we're trying to do at Journeyman.

"We've had some recent good fortune managing the starts for stallions like Congrats, Repent, Mass Media and Wildcat Heir, and I have no doubt there are more of those among the young and exciting group of stallions we currently have to offer at Journeyman."

Among the 13 other stallions standing at Journeyman next year are Circular Quay, at $6,500, and at $5,000 Awesome Of Course and the British-bred Sweet Return, who was trained by Ian Wood to finish second in the Group 3 Solario Stakes before a US racing career that included wins in the Hollywood Derby plus two Grade 1 handicaps.
