Saarland Starting at $10,000 at Hill 'n' Dale

Grade II winner Saarland will begin his stallion career in 2005 for a fee of $10,000 live foal at John Sikura's Hill 'n' Dale Farms near Lexington.

"We believe a fee of $10,000 live foal is great value for a classic-bred son of Unbridled out of multiple grade I winner Versailles Treaty, by Danzig," Sikura said.

Five-year-old Saarland won five races and placed in five graded stakes from 21 starts and earned $595,250.
