Darley Cuts 12 US Fees But Street Cry To US$150k

Thursday, 30th October 2008

Meanwhile Darley America announced cuts to 2009 breeding season fees for 12 of its 16 stallions, but not Street Cry, Elusive Quality & E Dubai. Street Cry (sire of the undefeated US Horse-of-the-Year candidate Zenyatta) had his fee raised by 50% from US$100,000 to US$150,000. And Street Boss (Street Cry's multiple Gr1-winning sprinting son) retires to stud for the 2009 season at an initial fee of US$25,000. Sheikh Mohammed's bloodstock advisor John Ferguson commented: "Darley is reducing all stud fees in the US with the exception of Street Cry, Elusive Quality & E Dubai, all of whom had Breeders' Cup winners over the weekend. We are hopeful by the time the decisions of 2009 are judged at the yearling sales in 2011, there will have been an upturn in the economy, but we believe breeders looking for value in 2009 have the greatest chance of success."
