D'Wildcat upgraded in 2010 Vinery fees

VINERY has announced next year's fees for its Kentucky and Florida-based stallions.

Two of the 14 on the Vinery roster, both grandsons of Storm Cat, have had their fees increasedfrom this year: D'Wildcat goes from $6,500 to $10,000 and Cactus Ridge, who transfers from Walmac toVinery Kentucky next year, has had his fee increased from $6,000 to $7,500.

The win of Hot Cha Cha in last month's Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes was a boost to the eight-year-old Cactus Ridge.

The three-year-old filly has also won two Grade 3 races this year - the 1m Bourbonette Oaks on Polytrack at Turfway Park, and Arlington's Pucker Up Stakes, a 1m1f fillies' race on turf.

The flagship horse for D'Wildcat this season has been D'Funnybone. The juvenile has won three of his five starts, including his debut, with two easy Grade 2 wins on dirt.

Three new additions to Vinery for 2010 are Kodiak Kowboy, Pioneerof The Nile and Maimonides. Kodiak Kowboy won two Grade 1 races this year over 6f and 7f, with a career record of nine wins from 20 starts.

Pioneerof The Nile won five of his ten starts, including the Santa Anita Derby and the CashCall Futurity.

Congrats and Stormello have had their fees more than halved, while More Than Ready, who remains the most expensive stallion on Vinery's books, has had his fee cut from $45,000 to $30,000
