Mill Ridge Farm has set the 2021 stud fee for world record turf miler Oscar Performance (Kitten's Joy) at $15,000, LFSN. Bred and raced by Jerry and John Amerman, he won the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, captured Grade I stakes at 2, 3, and 4, and broke a 20-year track record at Belmont Park at a mile in 1:31.23, all with no Lasix.
“We celebrate his third year, for we have seen so many of his foals and they are genuine quality,” said Headley Bell. “He has every opportunity to buck the trend and have more mares in his third year than he had in his first two of 118 and 116. At a stud fee of $15,000 live foal, he is value, for you have these quality foals in the pipeline.”
