Leading stallion Into Mischief will stand the 2022 season for $250,000, Spendthrift Farm announced Tuesday evening. The stallion, who is enjoying another standout season on the racetrack and in the sales ring, stood for $225,000 in 2021.

Spendthrift has added four new stallions for 2022, including recently retired Grade I winners Basin, Known Agenda and Yaupon, along with multi-millionaire By My Standards who remains in training through the end of the racing season. The new additions bring the farm's roster to 25 stallions.

“It is important to us that we continue to offer breeders both quality and value at all levels of the market, and we believe our 2022 stallion roster and fees reflect that,” said Spendthrift General Manager Ned Toffey. “We are very encouraged by a lot of positive indicators in the commercial yearling market, including strong sales numbers and high clearance rates. There has been good health at the sales, and breeders have had the chance to make money. Our aim is to provide opportunity for every breeder so that he or she can have confidence in being rewarded by the quality and value we offer.”

Yaupon, winner of last month's GI Forego S. will stand his first season at a fee $30,000 S&N. Known Agenda, this year's GI Florida Derby winner, will stand for $10,000 S&N, and Basin, winner of the GI Hopeful S. at two, will stand for $7,500 S&N. A fee for By My Standards will be set upon retirement.

GI Kentucky Derby winner Authentic will stand for $70,000 S&N in 2022, down from his $75,000 introductory fee. Omaha Beach will stand for $30,000, also down slightly from the previous breeding season.

Bolt d'Oro will see a slight increase in his fee to $20,000 S&N. Vino Rosso, the 2019 GI Breeders' Cup Classic winner, will also stand for $20,000 S&N, down slightly for his third season at stud.

Spendthrift's stallions under $20,000 are led by multiple Grade I-winning millionaire Vekoma who will stand his second season at stud for a reduced fee of $17,500 S&N.

Three stallions will participate in Spendthrift's “Safe Bet” program in 2022: Cloud Computing ($5,000), Free Drop Billy ($5,000) and Mor Spirit ($5,000). All three will have their first respective 2-year-olds hitting the track, and the program ensures them siring a graded stakes winner in 2022 or no stud fee is owed for that respective stallion.
