RSS Feeds Monday, November 12, 2012

Darby Dan Farm announced 2013 fees for its expanded roster of stallions, headlined by the additions of Grade 1 winners Shackleford and Dialed In.

Shackleford retires to Darby Dan for 2013 as a multiple Grade 1 winner who captured an American classic as a 3-year-old and returned to win arguably North America's most prestigious mile event as a 4-year-old. The popular chestnut won the 2011 Preakness S. (G1) before earning his second Grade 1 win in this year's Met Mile (G1), where he earned the co-fastest Beyer up to a mile in 2012 with a 115. Shackleford also defeated a top field in the Churchill Downs S. (G2) on Kentucky Derby day, and has earnings of more than $2.8 million to date. He will stand for a fee of $20,000 stands & nurses.

Dialed In is another Grade 1-winning 3-year-old who captured his biggest victory over a stellar field in the $1 million Florida Derby (G1) a year ago, making him the favorite for the Kentucky Derby. Dialed In also captured last year's Holy Bull S. (G3) at Gulfstream in just his second lifetime start after breaking his maiden as a 2-year-old at Churchill. Dialed In, who retires to stud with earnings of $941,936, will stand for a fee of $7,500 stands & nurses.

Darby Dan also welcomes back Grade 1 winner and Grade 1 sire Perfect Soul, who will stand in 2013 for a fee of $7,500 stands & nurses. The entire 2013 Darby Dan roster with fees are as follows:
