Showcasing (GB), the sire of three Group 1 winners with five sons at stud, will remain at £45,000 at Whitsbury Manor Stud for the 2022 season.
Announcing the fees for his five stallions, stud director Ed Harper said, “Following last year's downward adjustment of our fees due to Covid we have decided to keep our fees similar to last year. We are delighted that so many of our clients have had great success at the sales and feel it's important to maintain value commercial stallion options for breeders.”
He added, “Once again, Showcasing had a great year on the track as Britain's leading sire of 2-year-olds. His results have also translated through to the sales ring as he achieved more six-figure yearlings sales this year at Books 1 and 2 than ever before.”
As Whitsbury Manor's son of Scat Daddy, Sergei Prokofiev, embarks on his second season at stud, his fee has been reduced slightly to £6,000.
“He was the most popular first-season sire in Britain this year covering 154 mares,” said Harper. “I can honestly say no Whitsbury stallion has ever had a stronger start in terms of numbers and quality.”
The Group 1-winning sprinter Havana Grey (GB) will be represented by his first runners in 2022 and his fee has been held at £6,000, while Due Diligence has been cut to £5,000, the fee at which his fellow resident Adaay (Ire) remains for the fourth season in a row.
