Stud fees steady at Three Chimneys for 2017


Three Chimneys Farm announced today stud fees for its stallions for 2017, and all but one will have the same fee as this year. The exception is 16-year-old Sky Mesa, whose stud fee for the next breeding season will be $15,000, down from $20,000 in 2016.

The two Three Chimneys stallions with the highest fees for 2017 do not yet have foals of racing age. The first foals of Will Take Charge, who stands for $30,000, are weanlings. Palace Malice, who stands for $20,000, covered his first mares this past breeding season.
