Australia’s leading Stud farm, Arrowfield, co-owner with Summerhill of Way West (by Danehill), announced it’s stud fees for the forthcoming stud season. Top stallion Redoute’s Choice (by Danehill), whose yearlings averaged Aus$660 000 at the Sydney Sale last week, is by far the Southern Hemispheres most expensive horse at Aus$330 000 (approx R1.98 million).

Also off a very substantial fee is yet another son of Danehill, Flying Spur, who will be standing for Aus$99 000 (approx R594 000). He is followed by 7 times Champion South American Sire, Hussonet (like our own Muhtafal, by Mr Prospector), at Aus$38 500 (approx R231 000).

The latter is represented in the Summerhill National Sales Draft by an outstanding sister to Singapore Horse of the Year, WHY BE, while fans of the Ready to Run Sales can look forward to another two colts by the same horse.
