12th November - WHITSBURY MANOR STUD ANNOUNCE STALLION FEES FOR 2022
Ed Harper, Director of Whitsbury Manor Stud, is pleased to announce the stud fees for its stallions in 2022.
“Following last year’s downward adjustment of our fees due to Covid we have decided to keep our fees similar to last year. We are delighted that so many of our clients have had great success at the sales and feel it’s important to maintain value commercial stallion options for breeders”.
SHOWCASING will remain at the same fee of £45,000. “Once again, he’s had a great year on the track as Britain’s leading sire of 2yo’s. His results have also translated through to the sales ring as he achieved more six figure yearlings sales this year at Book 1 & 2 than ever before.”
SERGEI PROKOFIEV will stand at the slightly reduced rate of £6,000. “He was the most popular first season sire in Britain this year covering 154 mares. I can honestly say no Whitsbury stallion has ever had a stronger start in terms of numbers and quality”.
HAVANA GREY will remain at £6,000 “We could not have asked for a better response to his first crop of yearlings. They’ve impressed at the sales, now they just have to do the same on the track”.
DUE DILIGENCE will stand at £5,000.
