Buck Pond lowers two fees


Doug Arnold's Buck Pond Farm near Versailles, Ky., will reduce the fees for two of its stallions in 2007. The Danzig stallion Lost Soldier, sire of 2005 champion sprinter Lost in the Fog, will stand for $7,500, down from his $12,500 fee this year. Morluc, a 10-year-old Housebuster horse who has no runners yet, will drop from $5,000 to $3,500.

The other Buck Pond stallions will carry the same fees they had in 2006. Those horses include three sires whose first foals are weanlings this year: Bold Truth ($3,500), Hero's Tribute ($5,000), and Seattle Fitz ($8,500). Other Buck Pond sires and their fees are Bull Market ($3,500), Colonial Colony ($7,500), Crafty Shaw ($5,000), and State City ($10,000).
