1st Pendragon Yearlings Bring 10.5-Times Service Fee
Meanwhile Dato Tan Chin Nam's Think Big Stud bloodstock manager Duncan Ramage noted the initial 4 yearlings sold "at the 2010 major auctions" from dual Gr3-winning & Gr1-placed 1st-season stallion Pendragon (Elnadim-Alacrity, by Grosvenor) "have changed hands for an overall average of $92,500 with an Easter average of $145,000". The $92,500 figure is 10.5-times Pendragon's initial service fee of $8,800 & Ramage confirmed the stallion will stand at the $8,800 fee in 2010, alongside multiple stakes-winning 6YO sire Prince Arthur (Danehill-Scribbling, by Palace Music) who will serve his 2nd season at an unchanged $3,850.
