Hill ‘n’ Dale releases 2015 stud fees


Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm in Lexington, Ky. has revealed the advertised fees for its 2015 stallion roster, with a handful of stallions standing for lower fees.

Stormy Atlantic will once again stand for the highest fee among the Hill ‘n’ Dale stallions, at $25,000. The 20-year-old son of Storm Cat stood for $30,000 during the past breeding season.

Joining Stormy Atlantic as the farm’s highest-priced offering will be champion Midnight Lute. The 11-year-old son of Real Quiet’s fee remains unchanged at $25,000.

Other Hill ‘n’ Dale stallions to see movement in their stud fees include Misremembered, whose fee drops from $5,000 to $3,500; Roman Ruler, who will stand for $7,500 after posting a fee of $8,500 in 2014; and Zensational, whose fee will be $5,000 after standing for $15,000.

The 2015 roster will also feature the Team West Collection, a trio of stallions owned by Gary and Mary West that are grouped together for discounts.

New Year’s Day and debuting stallion Flashback will stand for advertised fees of $7,500, while Power Broker will stand for $5,000. Stud fees on Team West stallions are payable from sales proceeds, with the first $7,500 going to breeders for weanling sales and the first $15,000 going to breeders for yearling sales. If the foal is retained and not sold by his or her yearling season, the full stud fee is due and payable Dec. 31, 2017.

The trio of stallions will also be offered as part of the “Team West Trifecta,” in which if a breeder sends mares to all three Team West stallions in 2015, the stud fee is $5,000 each, also payable out of sale proceeds or by Dec. 31, 2017.
