Repent, who began his stallion career at John Sykes' CloverLeaf Farms II near Reddick, Fla., will stand in 2013 on the same property, now called Woodford Thoroughbreds. The son of Louis Quatorze's fee is $3,000, the same as it was in 2012.
A four-time graded stakes winner who ran second in the 2001 Bessemer Trust Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I), Repent stood from 2010-2011 at Vinery New York near Hudson.
"We feel his fee gives tremendous value to breeders; his progeny are so tough and durable, he is a terrific racehorse sire," said Woodford Farm manager Scott Kintz of Repent, who has ranked in the top five Florida sires the last two seasons.
Crown of Thorns , a grade II-winning son of Repent, will stand for $2,000, down from $4,000 in 2012.
"We look forward to the arrival of his first crop of foals in 2013," said Kintz. "We have supported him with a large percentage of our broodmare band —like Magical Mist, dam of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May sale topper in 2012 —and we are expecting half siblings to graded stakes horses Yes It's True, Spring Meadow, and Famous Patriot to name a few."
Darley Stud Management's Vineyard Haven, a multiple grade I winner, will also stand in 2013 Woodford Thoroughbreds. His fee will be $2,000 live foal. The 6-year-old son of Lido Palace formerly stood at Journeyman Stud near Ocala, Fla.
"We are very excited to be working with one of the best Thoroughbred operations in the world in Darley," said Kintz. "Vineyard Haven was a tremendous racehorse, and when you see him there is no doubting why."
