Freud remains at $10,000 on Sequel roster


Sequel Stallions in Hudson, N.Y., has unveiled its 2013 stallion roster and fees, and leading sire Freud’s fee will remain unchanged from 2012 at $10,000.

Freud, a 13-year-old Storm Cat horse who is a full brother to Giant’s Causeway, is New York’s leading sire of graded stakes winners, the state’s leading turf sire, and leading New York sire by Average Earnings Index. From eight crops of racing age, Freud’s progeny have earned more than $23 million, highlighted by Grade 1 winners Giant Ryan and Franny Freud.

Millionaire and two-time Grade 2 winner Mission Impazible, who retires to Sequel for 2013, will stand for $7,500 in his first season. The 5-year-old Unbridled’s Song horse won the Louisiana Derby in 2010 and followed up with the New Orleans Handicap in 2011. Mission Impazible is out of the stakes-winning Hold Your Peace mare La Paz and is a half-brother to Grade 2 winner and sire Forest Camp, Grade 3 winner Spanish Empire, and stakes winner Kiddari.

Young stallions Girolamo and Desert Party, who represent Darley at Sequel Stallions, will stand for $15,000 and $7,500, respectively. The fee for Girolamo, who entered stud at Sequel in 2012, is unchanged; Desert Party, whose first foals will be yearlings in 2013, stood for $10,000 at Darley at Jonabell in Lexington, Ky., in 2012.

Completing Sequel’s roster is Noonmark, whose fee remains unchanged at $5,000.

The stallions will be available for inspection at a showing Jan. 19.
