Whitsbury Manor Stud Releases 2021 Fees


Whitsbury Manor Stud announced the stud fees for its five stallions in 2021. Heading the roster is Showcasing (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}–Arabesque {GB}, by Zafonic), who will stand for a reduced fee of ₤45,000, Oct. 1 SLF.

“Our industry finds itself in uncertain times and it is vital that we act accordingly,” said Ed Harper, Director of Whitsbury Manor Stud. “We have therefore listened to our clients and chosen to drop the fees of our three highest priced stallions to offer the best possible value to breeders and keep the wheels turning.”

“In any other year you could expect the sire of a champion [G1] Sussex S. winning miler such as Mohaather to increase in fee, but we feel this is the right thing to do in the circumstances. Showcasing now has five sons at stud which is phenomenal from where he started. He also enjoyed significant group race success this year with Alkumait, Bodhicitta, and Tropbeau, who we hope will all stay in training next season.”

Additionally, Sergei Prokofiev (Scat Daddy–Orhcard Beach, by Tapit) will kick off his stud career at £6,500, Oct. 1 SLF.

“Being such a fast 2yo by Scat Daddy gives breeders an excellent opportunity to breed speed and precocity to their mares,” said Harper. “His turn of foot was exceptional and, as his [2017 KEESEP] yearling price of $1.1 million suggests, he has the looks to match.”

Due Diligence (War Front–Bema, by Pulpit) and Havana Grey (GB) (Havana Gold {Ire}–Blanc De Chine {Ire}, by Dark Angel {Ire}) will both have their fees reduced to £6,000, Oct. 1 SLF.

Adaay (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}–Lady Lucia {Ire}, by Royal Applause {GB}), who is one of the leading first season sires in Europe with 22 individual juvenile winners and three black-type horses, will again stand at £5,000, Oct. 1 SLF.
