WinStar announces 2014 stud fees
Tuesday, November 5, 2013
WinStar Farm announced 2014 stud fees for its expanded 23-stallion roster, led again by leading sire Distorted Humor who stands for $100,000 S&N, and emerging top sire Speightstown, whose fee will be $80,000 S&N following another stellar year that saw the son of Gone West move towards the top of the General Sires list again in 2013. 

WinStar welcomes a trio of Grade 1-winning millionaires new to the stud barn: Overanalyze, Paynter, and Take Charge Indy. Overanalyze, this year’s Arkansas Derby (G1) winner and a multiple Grade-winning juvenile, retires as Dixie Union’s last G1-winning millionaire to stud. He’ll stand for $10,000 S&N as a participant in WinStar’s Dream Big program.

Paynter will start a new chapter in his remarkable story when he begins stud duty at WinStar. By Awesome Again out of a full sister to Tiznow, the popular winner of last year’s Haskell Invitational (G1) will stand his first season at WinStar for a fee of $25,000 S&N. Florida Derby (G1) winner Take Charge Indy adds to the pedigree power that is new to the WinStar stallion ranks for 2014. Retiring as one of the last Grade 1-winning sons of A.P. Indy, Take Charge Indy hails out of multiple Grade 1 winner and producer Take Charge Lady. His fee will be $20,000 S&N.

“We couldn't be more proud of the WinStar stallions and their continued success across the board, both on the racetrack and in the sales ring,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar President & CEO. “WinStar remains focused on the future, and we’re thrilled to bring in three exciting new stallions for 2014 that greatly complement our existing roster, as well as greatly complement the direction of our breeding program. It is our mission to continue to offer breeders top dirt pedigrees and top dirt performers that excel around two turns, and we believe Paynter, Take Charge Indy, and Overanalyze allow us to do just that.”
