Stallion Fees 2017: The New Dawn

We all know things are tight, tighter than they’ve been in a very long time. And if it weren’t for the expectation of the normalisation of our export protocols in the reasonably near future, the breeding landscape would be a bleak place indeed. With that in mind, we’ve spent a good deal of time pleading the case of broodmare owners across the board with our stallion principals, and they’re not only sympathetic but they’re as determined as we are to play their part in contributing towards the future viability of our customers’ operations.

A Royal Flush

The old adage “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”, has never been truer. Breeding racehorses is as competitive now as it’s ever been, which means that to play a winning hand, you need to hold the aces. All of them.
