Taylor Made cuts some fees

EmailTaylor Made became the latest central Kentucky farm to announce some cuts in stud fees for the 2008 breeding season, dropping the fees for five stallions it stands alone or in partnership with WinStar Farm. Among the horses who will stand for less in 2008 is Taylor Made's popular sire Unbridled's Song; he drops from $200,000 to $150,000 for the coming season.

Also trimmed were Forestry, who goes from $125,000 to $100,000; Northern Afleet, who goes from $15,000 to $10,000; Officer, who drops from $40,000 to $35,000; and Southern Image, from $15,000 to $10,000.

But Tiznow, who stands for the Taylor Made/WinStar partnership at WinStar Farm, will get a raise from $25,000 to $30,000. His runners this year include Grade 1 winner Tough Tiz's Sis and Grade 2 winners Bear Now and Slew's Tizzy.

Taylor Made's other stallions will have the same fees they had last year, while new roster members Master Command and Half Ours will stand for $15,000. Another new addition, Wildcat Heir, will stand for $8,000, the same fee he had in Florida this season.

In other stud fee news, Lane's End stallion Kingmambo will stand for $250,000 in 2008, the Versailles, Ky., farm announced Tuesday.

The 17-year-old Mr. Prospector horse proved attractive as a covering sire this week during the first two days of Keeneland's November mixed sale. Through late afternoon Tuesday, the seven mares who had sold in foal to Kingmambo had averaged $1,930,000 and had a median price of $1.9 million, according to SireAverages.com. His four 2007 yearlings to sell averaged $596,033, with a $463,099 median.

Kingmambo's 2007 stakes winners include Pacific Classic victor Student Council, Epsom Oaks winner Light Shift, and French Group 1 winner Thewayyouare.

Kingmambo's fee was listed as private in 2007.
