Three Chimneys Farm announced its 2014 stallion roster, with several stallions' fees showing significant decreases from 2013. According to the farm, its stallions are being offered at attractive prices for the coming year to emphasize its focus on offering value within the market.
"As we set our fees for 2014, our focus is to provide great value to all breeders in all segments of the market, top to bottom," said Three Chimneys president Case Clay in a release. "Our stud fees are lower because our commitment to our customers' success has never been higher."
Three Chimneys has been in the news recently with both significant sales and purchases. The farm consigned three mares at the Fasig-Tipton November sale for seven-figure prices on behalf of clients. The farm also made several big-ticket purchases, including the $4.9 million mare Love and Pride, which it bought through partner Borges Torrealba Holdings.
"Three Chimneys is able to reward the breeding community by providing these competitive stud fees, thanks to the Borges-Torrealba family's commitment and our continued focus on developing top level horses for ourselves and our clients," Clay said. "Our dedication to our customers is paramount."
