WinStar announces 2021 stallion roster and fees
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

WinStar Farm has set 2021 stud fees for its 22-stallion roster, headed by Speightstown who will stand for $90,000 S&N and leading Second-Crop Sire Constitution who will stand for $85,000 S&N. WinStar will further bolster its roster for the upcoming breeding season by welcoming new stallions Improbable, Laoban, Tom’s d’Etat, Global Campaign, and Promises Fulfilled. WinStar has also announced that considering the current circumstances facing the industry that fees for most of the stallions on its roster will be reduced.

"During these times we felt it appropriate to drop 75 percent of our fees,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar’s president, CEO, and racing manager. “We gave two horses a bump—Speightstown, the Co-Leading Sire this year with three Grade 1 winners and 4th General Leading Sire, and Constitution who has over-delivered at every point of his career. As always, our mission is to offer breeders stallions of the highest quality. We are excited about Laoban joining our roster and three very live horses in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) joining our roster for the 2021 breeding season.”

Added Liam O’Rourke, WinStar’s director of bloodstock services, “We are offering breeders the opportunity to secure a limited number of seasons to Laoban, Outwork, and Improbable before the Breeders’ Cup, with their prices subject to change based on their Breeders’ Cup results.”

Improbable, City Zip’s only four-time Grade 1 winner, has rattled off three consecutive Grade 1 scores in 2020 and is the early favorite for next month’s $6,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1). He was a runaway winner of the Hollywood Gold Cup (G1) at Santa Anita, earning a 105 Beyer and then shipped to Saratoga and dominated the historic Whitney S. (G1), earning a 106 Beyer. Most recently, he romped by 4 ½ lengths in the Awesome Again S. (G1) at Santa Anita, defeating champion Maximum Security and earning a 108 Beyer.

Tom’s d’Etat, by sire of sires Smart Strike, is also a top contender for the Breeders’ Cup Classic for G M B Racing. He registered a brilliant 4 ¼-length victory in this year’s Stephen Foster S. (G2), running a career-best 109 Beyer. Tom’s d’Etat covered 1 1/8 miles in an eye-catching 1:47.30, geared down in the late stages. The final time came within a whisker of Victory Gallop’s track and stakes record of 1:47.28 set in 1999.

The Al Stall trainee has recorded 10 triple-digit Beyers, including nine in a row in an illustrious career. Tom’s d’Etat is out of the stakes-winning and multiple stakes-placed Giant’s Causeway mare Julia Tuttle who is out of a full sister to Pacific Classic (G1) winner and leading sire Candy Ride (ARG).

Global Campaign, a son of two-time Horse of the Year Curlin, heads to the Breeders’ Cup Classic following back-to-back Graded stakes scores and is a winner in three of four starts in 2020 for WinStar Farm and Sagamore Farm. He emulated his sire by capturing the Woodward H. (G1) in his most recent start, earning a career-best 104 Beyer for trainer Stanley Hough. The Woodward was his second straight Graded win following a victory in the Monmouth Cup S. (G3) in his prior outing.

Promises Fulfilled won five Graded stakes at distances from six furlongs to 1 1/16 miles—winning the H. Allen Jerkens S. (G1), Fountain of Youth S. (G2), John A. Nerud S. (G2), Phoenix S. (G2), and Amsterdam S. (G3), competing exclusively in Graded stakes company following his first two victories at two. In front in 15-of-17 starts no matter the distance, Promises Fulfilled competed in 15 Graded stakes, including eight Grade 1s, banking $1,455,530 in a stellar career for trainer Dale Romans.

The upcoming breeding season—with the influx of Grade 1 winners embarking on their stallion careers at WinStar—will also mark a changing of the guard. Tiznow, a multiple champion on the racetrack and an influential stallion who has made an indelible mark on the breed, will be retired from stud duty. Still the only two-time winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic, Tiznow was a champion on the racetrack and in the breeding shed, siring numerous elite runners.

Known as “The Big Horse Sire,” Tiznow is the sire of 15 Grade 1 winners that have won many of the world’s most prestigious events. He is the sire of Dubai World Cup (G1) winner Well Armed, Travers S. (G1) winner Colonel John, and Breeders’ Cup winners Folklore, winner of the 2005 Juvenile Fillies (G1) and Tourist, winner of the 2016 Mile (G1). He has even made his mark as an emerging broodmare sire of 34 stakes winners, including multiple Grade 1 winner Tiz the Law.

Fees with an asterisk are good through Breeders' Cup and are subject to change pending results. For Tom's d'Etat and Global Campaign, fees will be announced after the Breeders' Cup.
