Coolmore Australia has reduced many of its stallion fees for the 2010 season with one notable exception.
Coolmore Australia has announced service fees for the 2009 season, headed by Encosta de Lago, who will stand at a reduced fee of $220,000.
Coolmore in Australia has bowed to broodmare pressure and will not be sending former champion galloper Holy Roman Emperor (Danehill-L'on Vite) back home. The European two-time group I winner is instead out of quarantine and is heading to the stud's New South Wales farm to cover mares for the remainder of the year.
Susan Magnier's Australian standout Aqua d'Amore appears headed for the breeding shed after failing a barrier exam April 20 that will prevent her from running in Hong Kong's Champions Mile (HK-I) at Sha Tin on April 29.
Danehill will not shuttle to Australia for the 2002 breeding season. He has been shuttling to Australia since 1990, and Coolmore has decided to rest him for the 2002 southern hemisphere breeding season.
