Dutch Art Retires; Cheveley Park Stud Fees Announced

Ulysses | Amy Lanigan

Cheveley Park Stud's Ulysses (Ire), sire of three Group 3 winners this year including the Derby-placed White Birch (GB), has been trimmed to a fee of £9,000 in 2024, having been at £10,000 for the last three seasons. 

His fellow resident Twilight Son (GB) will stand at £6,000, which is also a small reduction from his fee for this year. The Group 1-winning sprinter was responsible for seven black-type performers this season, including the listed winner Vetivier (GB). Twilight Son covered 35 mares this year, while Ulysses covered 50.

The G1 Prix Morny winner Unfortunately (Ire), who is based at Springfield House Stud in Ireland and is the sire of the G1 Prix de l'Abbaye runner-up and dual listed winner Perdika (GB), is priced at €3,000 for 2024.

In releasing the fees for the stallions, Cheveley Park Stud also confirmed the retirement of Dutch Art (GB). The former top-class 2-year-old and winner of the G1 Prix Morny and G1 Middle Park S. turns 20 in January. He is the sire of Group 1 winners Starman (GB), Garswood (GB) and Slade Power (GB) and also features as broodmare sire of this year's 2,000 Guineas winner and new Juddmonte stallion Chaldean (GB).

Matthew Sigsworth, Cheveley Park Stud's bloodstock manager and head of nominations, said, 'We feel our stallions offer both outstanding value and opportunity for anyone wanting to breed either a Classic performer or a precocious Royal Ascot 2-year-old. As always, we invite breeders to contact us directly to discuss their mares' mating plans for 2024.

“Dutch Art has now being retired from stallion duties, and will enjoy a happy retirement at Cheveley Park Stud, where he will see out the rest of his years.”
