Taylor Made lowers most fees


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Taylor Made Farm in Nicholasville, Ky., will lower most of its stud fees for the 2003 breeding season.

The farm has cut the fee for Saint Ballado, its most expensive advertised stallion at $125,000 in 2002, to $75,000 next year. Two others with smaller price tags in 2003 are Exploit, who drops from $30,000 to $25,000, and Storm Creek, who goes from $15,000 to $10,000. Real Quiet, who relocated from Vinery, drops from $15,000 to $10,000.

Our Emblem, who stood for $4,000 in 2002 at Murmur Farm in Maryland before being purchased by Taylor Made and WinStar, will stand for $35,000 in 2003.

Unbridled's Song, who stood this year for a private fee, will stand for $100,000 in 2003. Forestry will stand for $50,000, the same as in 2002. The fee for Artax hasn't been set. He stood in 2002 for $30,000.
