Walmac releases
fees for 2010

WALMAC Farm in Kentucky have cut the fees for each of their seven established stallions including their flagship horse Successful Appeal, who has been reduced from $22,500 to $17,500.

Managing director John T. L. Jones III said in a statement:. "Successful Appeal continues to add to his exceptional and versatile siring record. This year, he is the sire of nine stakes winners here and abroad, including individual Graded stakes winners at 1m, 1m1f, and 1m14f.

"He also sired two Breeders' Cup contenders, and was covering sire on a $700,000 Keeneland November mare. He offers both quality and value, and we feel that he is well positioned at this fee."

Also receiving significant cuts are Bandini, whose first crop of juveniles hit the track in 2010, and Japanese import Hat Trick.

Grade 1 winner Boboman will enter stud at $5,000.
