Millennium Farms sets stallion fees for 2016


Millennium Farms in Lexington, Ky., announced stud fees for its 2016 stallions, with three of its four stallions - Even the Score, Giant Oak, and Ice Box - standing for $7,500, and the other, I Want Revenge, standing for $5,000.

Even the Score, a 17-year-old son of Unbridled’s Song out of Ashtabula, by Rahy, has sired dual Grade 1 winners Dullahan and Take the Points among his 34 black-type winners. His progeny have earned more than $41 million.

The first foals of Giant Oak, a 9-year-old son of Giant’s Causeway out of Crafty Oak, by Crafty Prospector, and Ice Box, an 8-year-old son of Pulpit out of Spice Island, by Tabasco Cat, are juveniles this year.

The first foals of I Want Revenge, a 9-year-old son of Stephen Got Even out of Meguial, by Roy, are weanlings this year.

“Ice Box was very well received in his first year at Millennium Farms in 2015,” said J. Ted Neel, business manager of Millennium Farms. “He showed his ability going two turns and his early progeny are doing the same. We look forward to seeing his first crop of runners stretch out to two turns and follow his path toward the 2016 Triple Crown.

“I Want Revenge is an A+ physical, so we’re not surprised by the quality of the individuals he’s throwing,” Neel said. “He was supported with a strong first book of mares and we can see his strength and athleticism reflected in these foals. He offers a ton of value to commercial breeders and end-users alike.”
