Irish champion Rossini, a half-brother to successful sire Elusive Quality, will stand in 2007 at Michele Rodriguez' Elite Thoroughbreds near Folsom, La.
Elusive Quality has become a poster boy for what a stallion with a modest fee can accomplish. The 2004 leading sire by progeny earnings had his stud fee go from $10,000 to $30,000, to $50,000, and now to its present $100,000. It's a success story reflecting quality through and through.
Rossini, a half-brother to leading sire Elusive Quality, has been purchased by Sheikh Mohammed and will stand the 2005 season at Darley at Jonabell Farm in Lexington, Ky. His fee has not been set.
