Darby Dan sets 2018 stud fees
RSS Feeds Sunday, October 22, 2017
Darby Dan Farm has set 2018 stud fees for its roster of eight stallions set to stand the upcoming breeding season, led by Dialed In whose fee has been moved to $25,000 S&N.

The champion first-crop sire of 2016, Dialed In is currently the leading second-crop sire in 2017 by black type horses, siring 11 to date. He also has 6 black type winners this year, led by three-time Graded stakes-winning 3-year-old colt Gunnevera, and undefeated Grade 3-winning 2-year-old colt The Tabulator. 

Gunnevera, winner of the Fountain of Youth S. (G2) earlier this year at Gulfstream, is a contender for this year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1). He was most recently a fast-closing runner-up in the Travers S. (G1) at Saratoga. The Tabulator, a $460,000 2-year-old purchase earlier this year, has won all three of his starts by an average margin of four lengths, including wins in the Prairie Gold Juvenile S. and, most recently, the Iroquois S. (G3) at Churchill in his first start around two turns. In the Iroquois, The Tabulator earned a berth into the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) where he will make his next start at Del Mar.

Shackleford will remain at $20,000 for 2018 after another good year from his progeny, both on the track and in the sales ring. He’s sired 8 black type horses and 4 Graded stakes horses so far in 2017, led by 3-year-old colt Malagacy, winner of the Rebel S. (G2) at Oaklawn, and undefeated 2-year-old filly Dream It Is, who’s won her first three starts by an average margin of five lengths including wins in the My Dear S. at Woodbine and Schuylerville S. (G3) at Saratoga.

Run Away and Hide’s fee will move to $10,000 in 2018 after siring four black type winners already among his 2-year-olds, which happen to be his biggest and best-bred crop to date. He’s led by Run Away, the multiple stakes-winning colt whose biggest win to date was in the Best Pal S. (G2) at Del Mar, and Ten City, winner of the Bashford Manor S. (G3).

Darby Dan will again be offering various incentives programs in 2018 to provide value to breeders, including the Profit Protection Program, Goldmine 20/20 Match Program, and Black-Type Bonanza Program.
