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.
