SEQUEL STALLIONS NEW YORK ANNOUNCES 2021 STUD FEES
Sequel Stallions New York announces its 2021 Stud Fees, led by New York’s first son of 2020 Leading Sire INTO MISCHIEF, HONEST MISCHIEF who will stand for $6,500 LFSN. The freaky fast bay is new for the 2021 season and will be backed by a syndicate led by Sequel, with global powerhouse Juddmonte Farm in support.
New York’s perennial Leading Sire FREUD will stand for $5,000. FREUD, New York’s Leading Sire by number of black type winners, turf, and AEI is the versatile full brother to GIANT’S CAUSEWAY. He has lifetime progeny earnings over $65 Million dollars aptly earning his nom de course as the “King Of New York.”
“It is a very tough climate in the sales market anywhere now, but especially in the regional markets. We want to give our breeders a chance to be profitable. The recent sales in Kentucky have clearly demonstrated breeding in Kentucky does not guarantee a profit. The lower stallion fees, no transportation or boarding costs coupled with the lucrative purse structure NYRA offers and resulting awards will give our breeders the opportunity to recover from the dismal 2020 season,” said owner, Becky Thomas.
UNBRIDLED’S SONG‘s G1 performing millionaire, MISSION IMPAZIBLE has led every crop he has had of racing age with progeny earnings over $9 Million dollars with just 5 crops of racing age and 45% winners. Twin Creeks Farm and Sequel continue to provide support secondary to his progeny success on the racetrack.
Multiple stakes winner, UNION JACKSON is the first son of two-time Horse of the Year CURLIN to stand in New York. He is out of HOT DIXIE CHICK, a G1 winning 1/2 sister to G1 Kentucky Derby winner ALWAYS DREAMING. Standing in New York for a partnership between Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings and Sequel New York, his gorgeous first crop are looking to be very fast two-year-olds of 2021.
Track record setting, multiple graded stakes winner, DESTIN, a full brother to Grade 1 sire CREATIVE CAUSE, was nosed in the G1 Belmont Stakes. He is owned by a syndicate and is supported by Gainesway Farm, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Twin Creeks Farm as well as Sequel New York.
