Heading Arrowfield’s 2020 stallion roster, reigning Champion Sire Snitzel will stand at a reduced fee of A$165,000 inc. GST in recognition of the current worldwide economic environment.
Snitzel recently celebrated both his twenty-eighth million-dollar yearling and his one hundredth individual stakeswinner, propelling him back to the top of the current General Sires’ Premiership.
If he secures the 2019/20 title, Snitzel will be the first stallion since his grandsire Danehill to win four consecutive Australian Sire Premierships.
Meanwhile, the fee for Pariah’s third season has been similarly adjusted, to A$16,500 inc. GST, and Champion 3YO Colt The Autumn Sun’s second-season fee has been set at A$66,000 inc. GST.
The fees are unchanged for Champion 2YO Colt Shalaa whose first Australian yearlings averaged A$168,000 (median A$150,000) and syndicated Gr2-winning sprinter Showtime, whose first foals arrive this Spring.
Almost all of the 300-plus mares controlled by Arrowfield will visit the eight stallions on the Stud’s 2020 roster – a valuable support for other breeders, given the Stud’s consistent record as a source of Arrowfield stallions’ career-making stars.
