Email

The three farms that comprise the European wing of Shiekh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum’s Darley operation have announced their stud fees for 2014.

The two horses making the biggest jumps in price for the coming breeding season are based at Darley’s Dalham Hall Stud in Suffolk, England. Dubawi will stand for an advertised fee of $160,613 (100,000 British Pounds) in 2014 after standing for $120,845 (£75,000) during the 2013 season. The 11-year-old son of Dubai Millennium is the sire of Group 1 winners including Monterosso, Makfi, Lucky Nine, and Al Kazeem.

Also seeing a spike is New Approach, an 8-year-old Galileo horse whose fee will increase from $80,351 (£50,000) to $128,438 (£80,000). The multiple Group 1 winner is himself a sire of Group 1 winners Dawn Approach and Talent.

Two stallions top the roster at Kildangan Stud in Co. Kildare, Ireland, with Shamardal maintaining his $68,803 (50,000 Euros) fee from 2013. An 11-year-old son of Giant’s Causeway, Shamardal’s top progeny include Australian champion Faint Perfume, Italian Group 1 winner Zazou, and French dual classic winner Lope de Vega.

Making the jump to the same stud fee at the Irish farm is Teofilo, who stood the 2013 season for $48,141 (€35,000). The 9-year-old son of Galileo is the sire of Group 1 winners including Trading Leather, Havana Gold, Parish Hall, and Voleuse de Coeurs.

Haras du Logis, Darley’s farm in Louvieres en Auge, France, will be led by Authorized, who transfers to a new location for 2014 after standing Dalham Hall Stud for $11,247 (£11,247). The 9-year-old son of Montjeu will stand his first season in France for $13,754 (€10,000), and his leading runners include Turkish champion Toruk Macto and Group 1 winners Seal of Approval, Complacent, and Ambivalent.

Standing at The Queen’s Royal Studs in Norfolk, England is Royal Applause, a 20-year-old son of Waajib, whose fee will be $14,460 (£9,000). Leading runners by Royal Applause include multiple Grade 1 winner Ticker Tape, Grade 2 winner Battle of Hastings, and Crime Scene, a Group 3 winner and runner-up in the 2009 Melbourne Cup.
