Kodiac (GB) (Danehill) leads the seven-strong roster at Tally-Ho Stud at an unchanged fee of €65,000 in 2022. Responsible for 13 black-type winners in 2021, the 20-year-old's progeny enjoyed Group 1 success with G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud hero El Bodegon (Ire) and G1 Commonwealth Cup heroine Campanelle (Ire). Also among his group winners this term are Cloudy Dawn (Ire), American Bridge (GB), Bear Story (Ire), Glounthaune (Ire) and Fast Attack (Ire).

Priced at €50,000, Mehmas (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}), who was the Champion First-Season Sire in Europe in 2022, celebrated 11 black-type winners and is firmly on top of the European Second-Season Sire list. The sire of his second overall Group 1 winner in 2021 GI Del Mar Oaks heroine Going Global (Ire), he stood for €25,000 this year. Four of his seven 2021 group winners were from his second crop of juveniles headed by dual Group 2 winner Lusail (Ire), G2 Flying Childers S. victor Caturra (Ire), and G2 Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte heroine Malavath (Ire), who also ran second in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. Acklam Express (Ire) and Minzaal (Ire), from his first crop, were also Group 1 placed in Dubai and in the G1 British Champions Sprint S., respectively.

Previously announced as a new addition to the roster, Group 1 winner Starman (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}) will command €17,500. The G1 July Cup hero also placed in the G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest and G1 Sprint Cup.

A pair of Tally-Ho stallions will have their first crop of 3-year-olds in 2022 in Cotai Glory (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) at €8,500 and Galileo Gold (GB) (Paco Boy {Ire}) at €7,000. The former's best runner to date has been G2 Prix Robert Papin and G3 Prix du Bois scorer Atomic Force (Ire), while Purciaretta (Ire) landed a listed race. Eldrickjones (Ire) ran second in the G2 Coventry S. and Pearl Glory (Ire) was runner-up in the G3 Dick Poole S. G1 Phoenix S. hero Ebro River (Ire) is one of three black-type winners for Galileo Gold, who is also the sire of Group 3 winner Oscula (Ire), third in the G1 Prix Marcel Boussac, and Listed Empress S. heroine System (Ire).

Completing the roster are the duo of Inns of Court (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and Kessaar (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}), who will both stand for €5,000. Successful four times at group level and dual Group 1 placed, Inns of Court's first foals are selling at the breeding stock sales beginning this month. Kessaar, the winner of the G2 Mill Reef S. and G3 Sirenia S., will have his first runners in 2022.
