Claiborne Farm in Paris, Ky. has released its advertised stud fees for the 2014 breeding season.

Two of the farm’s stallions will stand for an increased rate in 2014, led by War Front, whose stud fee rises from $80,000 to $150,000.

The 11-year-old Danzig horse has emerged as one of North America’s leading commercial sires, led by a $2.5-million colt that topped this year’s Keeneland September yearling sale. On the racetrack, his top runners of 2013 include Group 1 winner Declaration of War, Grade/Group 2 winners Departing, War Dancer, War Command, Bashart and Lines of Battle, and Grade 3 winners Peace Preserver, Jack Milton and Summer Front.

Also seeing a boost in his stud fee is First Samurai, will stand in 2014 for $15,000, up from $10,000 last year. All other stallions remain unchanged.

New to the Claiborne roster for 2014 is Data Link a 5-year-old Grade 1-winning son of War Front, who will stand for an inaugural fee of $7,500.
