Dialed In’s stud fee doubles for 2017


The success of freshman sire Dialed In has led to a doubling of his stud fee for 2017. Darby Dan Farm announced its 2017 fees today, and the Lexington, Ky., farm indicated that Dialed In, third on the 2016 freshman sire list, will stand for $15,000, up from $7,500 in each of his first four years at stud.

Dialed In, by Mineshaft, has sired two stakes winners, including Grade 2 Saratoga Special winner Gunnevera, and he has 15 winners from 31 starters and progeny earnings of $744,959, behind only Union Rags and Gemologist.

Shackleford, another first-crop sire, will see his fee fall to $15,000, from $20,000. Shackleford, by Forestry, is 13th on the freshman sire list and is represented by Wellabled, winner of the Grade 3 Arlington-Washington Futurity.

Coming second-year sire Tapiture will again stand for $7,500. In his first year at stud, the son of Tapit covered 176 mares, tenth-most for any sire who stood in North America this year.
