The Irish National Stud announce fees for 2020 with PHOENIX OF SPAIN new at €15,000.
A high class 2yo he won the Gr.3 Acomb and just missed out to TOO DARN HOT in the Gr.2 Champagne Stakes and to MAGNA GRECIA in the Gr.1 Vertem Futurity, his 2yo form is exceptional. PHOENIX OF SPAIN destroyed a high class field in the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Gns including Champion 2yo TOO DARN HOT and 2,000 Gns winner MAGNA GRECIA just highlighting how good this colt is. Phoenix of Spain is the highest rated and first Classic winning colt to retire to stud by the world’s emerging super sire Lope De Vega. Bred on the incredible Shamardal sire-line responsible for the 2019 Group 1 winning juveniles Victor Ludorum, Earthlight and Pinatubo as well as Champion sprinter Blue Point.
Cathal Beale – “I expect breeders to be bowled over by PHOENIX OF SPAIN’s physicality, he’s big and strong, correct and he has an amazing walk. We have a great range of stallions at various price points and we look forward to welcoming breeders to the stud over the coming weeks”.
DECORATED KNIGHT’s first draft of sale foals will provide him with a great platform, to encourage breeders we have adjusted his fee to € 9,000.00
Racecourse and sales results force ELUSIVE PIMPERNEL to rise to €3,000 for 2020 due to extraordinary demand.
The evergreen INVINCIBLE SPIRIT celebrated his first British Classic winner in 2019 and his fee is adjusted to €100,000. His son NATIONAL DEFENSE, the only Champion 2yo by his sire in Ireland or the UK awaits his first foals to European sales rings over the coming weeks.
FREE EAGLE’s first 2yo’s started very strongly in 2019 with 11 individual winners and two BT horses, his fee remains at €12,500.00 Those seeking proven value saw DRAGON PULSE as an obvious choice in 2019 and with his near 50% winner to runner ratio he will stand again for €6,000.00 in 2020.
