Uncaptured, The Big Beast Head Ocala Stud Roster

Both will stand for an advertised fee of $6,000 in 2018.

Ocala Stud has set stud fees for its 11-stallion roster for 2018, led by Canadian Horse of the Year Uncaptured  and grade 1 winner The Big Beast , who will both stand for an advertised fee of $6,000. 

Uncaptured has been Florida's most popular stallion in recent years, covering a state-high 140 mares in 2017. The multiple graded stakes-winning millionaire by Lion Heart was represented by his first crop of yearlings in 2017, which averaged $37,045 at the sales and included a $170,000 filly at the Ocala Breeders' Sales' October yearling sale. The Big Beast, by Yes It's True, was represented by his first crop of weanlings this year, including a $40,000 colt at the Keeneland November sale.

Florida's second most-popular stallion in 2017 proved to be first-year sire Jess's Dream , who bred 122 mares. The regally-bred son of two Horse of the Year winners—Curlin  and Rachel Alexandra—will head into his second season at stud in 2018 with his fee unchanged at $5,000.

Ocala Stud welcomes two new grade 1-winning stallions to its 2018 roster—Greenpointcrusader  and Noble Bird . Greenpointcrusader, winner of the 2015 Champagne Stakes (G1) as a 2-year-old, will stand his first season for $5,000. Noble Bird, the multiple graded stakes winner who scored his biggest win in the 2015 Stephen Foster Handicap (G1), will also stand for an introductory fee of $5,000.
