Coolmore have announced service fees for 2016 on a roster of 12 stallions for Australia with champion sire Fastnet Rock again listed with a private fee and Golden Slipper winners Vancouver and Pierro priced at $66,000.
Group I Blue Diamond and Sires Produce Stakes winner Pride of Dubai commences his stud career at a fee of $55,000, while Scat Daddy’s brilliant Group I winning son No Nay Never is an exciting new addition at a fee of $11,000.
A fast precocious juvenile, No Nay Never won the Group I Prix Morny and was the Champion 2YO Colt of France in 2013.
“We’ve got three very exciting new horses for the coming season. Pride of Dubai is already here on the farm and looks a million dollars while Vancouver is thrilling Aidan O’Brien at Ballydoyle. We’re really looking forward to see him running – most likely at Royal Ascot – before he returns here for the breeding season,” said Tom Magnier.
“Wesley Ward has trained some very fast horses but none faster than Scat Daddy’s son No Nay Never who smashed the 1000m course record for a two-year-old at Royal Ascot. His first foals in Europe look like they’ll be fast too.
“We are obviously over the moon with the start So You Think has made at stud. We were always very confident about his prospects but didn’t expect it would happen quite this early. There is great anticipation ahead of Pierro’s first two-year-old runners next season; they really look the part.”
