Curlin | Sarah Andrew

The roster and fees for Hill 'n' Dale Farm's 2022 season is led by the nation's leading sire in number of Grade I winners, dual Horse of the Year Curlin (Smart Strike–Sheriff's Deputy, by Deputy Minister). He will return in 2022 for a fee of $175,000 LFSN. Also remaining unchanged is fellow Horse of the Year Ghostzapper (Awesome Again–Baby Zip, by Relaunch). The Hall of Famer will stand for $75,000 LFSN in 2022.

Included among the operation's up-and-coming sires, Good Magic (Curlin–Glinda the Good, by Hard Spun), whose fee also remains unchanged for 2022, will stand his second season for $30,000 LFSN. The 2017 champion juvenile's initial crop of yearlings was led by a $775,000 colt at Keeneland September. Joining Hill 'n' Dale's roster at the stallion complex at Xalapa is dual Grade I winning Charlatan (Speightstown–Authenticity, by Quiet American). A winner of over $4 million in earnings, the chestnut will stand his first season at stud for $50,000 LFSN. Also standing for $50,000 LFSN in 2022: Turf champion Kitten's Joy (El Prado {Ire}–Kitten's First, by Lear Fan) and Maclean's Music (Distorted Humor–Forest Music, by Unbridled's Song), sire of Grade I winner Jackie's Warrior, among the early favorites to the GI Breeders' Cup Sprint. Grade I winner Violence (Medaglia d'Oro–Violent Beauty, by Gone West) will stand for $25,000 LFSN next season.

“Hill 'n' Dale stallions continue to succeed at the highest levels,” said Hill 'n' Dale President, John G. Sikura. “Maclean's Music has enjoyed a breakout year led by Grade I winners Jackie's Warrior and Drain the Clock. Kitten's Joy is consistently a leading sire and Violence has a prime Breeders' Cup contender in Dr Schivel. Our newest addition Charlatan is hugely popular with breeders and will be supported with our best mares.”
