Dynaformer Stays at $150,000

Big Brown's fee drops to $40,000; Sky Mesa goes up to $30,000.

Dynaformer, this year’s leading turf sire by progeny earnings, will stand in 2011 for $150,000 at Robert N. Clay’s Three Chimneys Farm near Midway, Ky. It will be the fifth straight year that Dynaformer (Roberto—Andover Way, by His Majesty) will stand for that sum.

Sky Mesa is the only Three Chimneys stallion whose fee was increased. His 2011 fee is $30,000 compared with $25,000 last breeding season.

In addition to Dynaformer, the following stallions will stand in 2011 for the same 2010 fee: Exchange Rate ($25,000), War Chant ($12,500), Red Giant ($6,000), Good Reward ($5,000), and Lewis Michael  ($5,000).

Three Chimneys reduced the fees for Big Brown  ($40,000 from $55,000), Yes It's True ($15,000 from $17,500), and Point Given ($7,500 from $10,000).

All fees are due when the foal stands and nurses, except for Dynaformer, whose fee will be due Sept. 1 of year bred.
