The Aga Khan’s Gilltown Stud in Ireland and Haras de Bonneval in France have released their advertised fees for the 2015 breeding season.

Leading the group will be European Horse of the Year and popular young stallion Sea The Stars, who stands at the Aga Khan’s Irish base. The 8-year-old son of Cape Cross and brother of all-world sire Galileo will stand for about $155,678 (125,000 euros) during the upcoming breeding season, up from $105,868 (85,000 euros) in 2014.

Sea The Stars is the sire of two crops of racing age, led in 2014 by Epsom Oaks winner Taghrooda and Group 1 winners Sea The Moon and Vazira.

Also standing for the Aga Khan in Ireland is Dalakhani (17,000 euros from 25,000 euros),

Makfi, who previously stood at Tweenhills Stud in Gloucestershire, England, will relocate to Haras de Bonneval with a fee reduction following conversions (17,500 euros from about 31,865 euros). The Aga Khan’s French roster is completed by Sinndar (unchanged at 4,500 euros) and Siyouni (7,000 euros from 20,000 euros),
