RSS Feeds Tuesday, October 23, 2018
Darby Dan Farm has set 2019 stud fees for its roster of nine stallions that will stand the upcoming breeding season, led by leading Third-Crop sires Dialed In and Shackleford. Dialed In will stand for $25,000 S&N and Shackleford will stand for $20,000 S&N. New to the roster for 2019 is Poseidon’s Warrior who will stand for $6,500 S&N.

Dialed In, the No. 1 Second-Crop Sire of 2017 by black type horses (12) and black type winners (7), is the sire of multiple Graded stakes winner Gunnevera, an earner of more than $3 million. Gunnevera, who is targeting the $6,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), finished second in this year’s $750,000 Woodward Stakes (G1) and was third in the $16,300,000 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes (G1). Dialed In is also the sire of 2018 Graded stakes winners Ms Locust Point, and stakes winners Chalon and The Tabulator.

Shackleford is the sire of seven 2018 stakes horses, including Grade 1-winning 3-year-old Promises Fulfilled. Winner of the H. Allen Jerkens (G1) and Amsterdam Stakes (G2) at Saratoga, Promises Fulfilled most recently added the Phoenix Stakes (G2) at Keeneland and captured the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream in March. He is expected to make his next start in the $2,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1).

Darby Dan will once again be offering various incentive programs in 2019 to provide value to breeders, including Profit Protection, Share the Upside, Black-Type Bonanza, Goldmine 20/20 Match Program, and Breed Secure.
