Siyouni’s fee is jumping up to €75,000 for the 2018 breeding season. Was previously €40,000. I believe Sea The Stars has also gone up from €125,000 to €135,000 but I’m not entirely sure.

It is.

I don't know why they're retiring him. I get nothing is sure.. but Met Mile?
Right? I would've LOVED to see Gun Runner head to the Met, but if he's not, PJ seems an easy gamble.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

Adena Springs Announces 2018 Stud Fees
Adena Springs' nine-horse stallion roster is led by Ghostzapper, who finished 2017 as the eighth general leading sire in North America.

A homebred son of Adena Kentucky stallion Awesome Again, Ghostzapper enjoyed considerable success in 2017 with 15 black-type winners, eight graded winners, and two grade 1 winners, and his progeny earnings exceeded $10.3 million. His 2018 fee will be $85,000, increased from $75,000 last year.

Adena Kentucky first-crop sires Point of Entry and Fort Larned were both represented by their first stakes winners in 2017, with Fort Larned's daughter Blonde Bomber earning a placing in the 14 Hands Winery Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1).

First-crop yearlings by Mucho Macho Man, a millionaire and grade 1-winning son of Adena stallion Macho Uno, were well received at the sales. Mucho Macho Man ranked among the top first-crop sires at the Keeneland September sale by median and by average.

The 2018 breeding season may also see the addition of multiple grade 1 winner and Canadian champion Shaman Ghost. The son of Ghostzapper is still in training. His fee will be announced upon retirement.

Ocala Stud sets fees for 2018 stallion roster 11/15/2017
Ocala Stud has set stud fees for its 11-stallion roster for 2018, led again by Canadian Horse of the Year Uncaptured and Grade 1 winner The Big Beast, who will both stand for a fee of $6,000 S&N.

Uncaptured has been Florida’s most popular stallion in recent years, covering a state-high 140 mares in 2017. The multiple Graded stakes-winning millionaire by Lion Heart was represented by his first crop of yearlings in 2017, which averaged $37,046 at the sales and included a $170,000 filly at OBS October. The Big Beast, by former Florida champion freshman sire Yes It’s True, was represented by his first crop of weanlings this year, including a $40,000 colt at Keeneland November.

Florida’s second most-popular stallion in 2017 proved to be first-year sire Jess’s Dream, who bred 122 mares. The regally-bred son of two Horse of the Year winners – Curlin and Rachel Alexandra – will head into his second season at stud in 2018 with his fee unchanged at $5,000 S&N.

Ocala Stud welcomes two new Grade 1-winning stallions to its 2018 roster – Greenpointcrusader and Noble Bird. Greenpointcrusader, Bernardini’s winner of the Champagne S. (G1) as a 2-year-old, will stand his first season for $5,000 S&N. Noble Bird, the millionaire multiple graded stakes winner who scored his biggest win in the Stephen Foster H. (G1), will also stand for an introductory fee of $5,000 S&N.

The Factor, on lease to JBBA for the 2018 Northern Hemisphere season, will stand for ¥2,000,000 (more than US$17,500).

Star Guitar's Fee Raised to $7,500
A strong crop of 2-year-olds in 2017 prompted Evelyn Benoit's Brittlyn Stable to raise the stud fee for homebred Star Guitar to $7,500 for the 2018 breeding season.

The four-time Louisiana Horse of the Year and winner of 22 black-type stakes out of 30 starts has been represented this year by 11 juvenile winners from 21 starters. His top 2-year-olds include stakes winners Testing One Two, a daughter out of Yes Sir (Scat Daddy) who won the Louisiana Jewel Stakes, and Aceguitar, a colt out of Cherub Heart (Dehere) who won the Louisiana Cup Juvenile Stakes and finished second in the Texas Thoroughbred Futurity. Star Guitar also sired Givemeaminit, out of Powerful Nation (Turkoman), who finished third in the grade 1 Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.

"Star Guitar is certainly passing on his will to win that he demonstrated with his race record of 24 wins from 30 starts," said Benoit, who has stood Star Guitar at Clear Creek Stud near Folsom, La., since he entered stud in 2013 at $4,000.

That's good to see. I'd love to see Star Guitar successfully carry on Quiet American's bloodline, especially since we lost Real Quiet too soon.

Tonalist stud fee cut to $20,000
Tonalist, the winner of the 2014 Belmont Stakes, will stand for an advertised fee of $20,000 at Lane’s End in Versailles, Ky., during the 2018 breeding season.

The 6-year-old Tapit horse was initially advertised for $30,000 by Lane’s End when the farm announced its 2018 fees in October. He stood his debut season in 2016 for $40,000, then was advertised at $30,000 in 2017.

Tonalist’s first foals are weanlings of 2017. He was led during Kentucky’s fall mixed sale season by a $260,000 colt purchased by Burnt Milles Thoroughbreds at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale.

Does this reduction mean that his weanlings weren't wonderful? Or is it because there are a lot of Tapit sons standing out there now? Or both?

I don't know what they looked like but I thought his about a dozen or so weanlings that sold in Oct/Nov did pretty well. One sold for $260k but there was a low one for $7k, both were kind of outliers. I think the average was maybe about $100k, but that's a pretty small sample. This fee is probably more in line to continue to attract a good sized book of mares because, yes, the competition got harder.

I was as well, but, he's not getting any younger and this may pull some breeders in that were on the fence in regards to that.

Wonder if he is slow breeder like his older brother.
