WinStar Farm sets 2019 stud fees
Thursday, October 11, 2018

WinStar Farm announced 2019 stud fees for its 22-stallion roster today, again headed by Pioneerof the Nile who will stand for a fee of $110,000 S&N this upcoming breeding season. WinStar also welcomes two new stallions to its roster in Always Dreaming, winner of the 2017 Kentucky Derby (G1) and Florida Derby (G1), and Jim Dandy Stakes (G2) winner Good Samaritan.

“WinStar stallions have enjoyed another exceptional year and we’re proud of their success across the board, both on the racetrack and in the sales ring,” said Elliott Walden, President and CEO of WinStar Farm. “We’re excited about the future and our mission is to continue offering breeders industry-shaping sire power through our diverse roster.”

Pioneerof the Nile remains in the upper echelon of sires with outstanding results on the racetrack and in the sales ring. He is the sire of two 2-Year-Old Male Eclipse Award winners and two Breeders’ Cup winners from his first four crops to race: Horse of the Year and Triple Crown winner American Pharoah and Classic Empire. His 2018 sale yearlings include prices up to $1,050,000, $1,000,000, $950,000, etc., and his 2-year-olds include an $850,000 colt, the second-highest price of the OBS March sale. He is the No. 1 sire of his generation for the past three years and the No. 1 sixth-crop cumulative sire in nearly every category. His fee will remain at $110,000.

More Than Ready has been led this year by Travers Stakes (G1) and Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes (G1) winner Catholic Boy who joined California Chrome as the only 3-year-old to win a Grade 1 on dirt and turf this decade; Roy H, back-to-back winner of the Santa Anita Sprint Championship (G1) and winner of the 2017 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1); United Nations Stakes (G1) winner Funtastic; and Rushing Fall, winner of last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) and a multiple Grade 2 winner this year. His fee moves to $80,000 S&N.

Perennial top stallion Speightstown continues to sire high-level horses both on the racetrack and in the sales ring and is an emerging sire of sires, having had four individual sons sire a Grade 1 winner. He has sired 14 Grade 1 winners on every surface from six furlongs to 1 ¼ miles, all over the world. He is represented by 2018 Graded stakes winners Qurbaan, Switzerland, Yorkton, National Flag, Strike Power, etc. He will stand for $80,000 S&N.

Always Dreaming and Good Samaritan are new to the roster for 2019. By Bodemeister, Always Dreaming hails from the Unbridled sire line, the most dominant classic sire in recent years. Always Dreaming broke his maiden by an eye-catching 11 ½ lengths in January of his 3-year-old season and rattled off four consecutive victories, culminating with his triumph in the 143rd Kentucky Derby. He captured the Florida Derby by a decisive five lengths in his stakes debut, covering 1 1/8 miles in 1:47.47, marking the fastest running of the race since Alydar in 1978. Always Dreaming will stand his first season for $25,000 S&N.

Good Samaritan, a versatile millionaire son of Harlan’s Holiday, was a 4 ¾-length winner of the $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes (G2) in his first start on the dirt and is also a Graded winner on the turf, having annexed the Summer Stakes (G2) at Woodbine at two. He captured the $400,000 New Orleans Handicap (G2) in his 4-year-old debut and won or placed in eight Graded stakes while earning $1,309,450. Good Samaritan is from a deep female family. His fourth dam, La Affirmed, is the granddam of Grade 1 winners Sky Mesa and Monthir and a half-sister to Champion 2-Year-Old Filly Outstandingly. Good Samaritan will stand for $12,500 S&N.
