Claiborne Farm Announces 2018 Stud Fees

Stud fees for Claiborne Farm’s 2018 stallion roster have been released. Among the twelve stallions currently standing at the Hancock family’s historic farm in Paris, KY, is international super sire War Front, who will remain at $250,000 next year. War Front’s G1-winning progeny this year includes Roly Poly, War Flag, Avenge, American Patriot and 2-year-old U S Navy Flag. War Front is currently the #2 sire by G1 winners in North America.

Mastery will be joining the roster for 2018 and will stand for $25,000. Mastery is an undefeated G1 winner by Candy Ride (ARG), the sire of this year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Gun Runner. Mastery was highly favored for this year’s Kentucky Derby (G1) after winning his four starts by a combined margin of nearly 20 lengths.

Claiborne’s Flatter will see a slight rise in his stud fee to $40,000 after the success of multiple G1-winning 3-year-old West Coast. West Coast scored back-to-back victories in the Travers S. (G1) and Pennsylvania Derby (G1) defeating the winners of this year’s Kentucky Derby (G1), Preakness S. (G1), Belmont S. (G1) and Haskell Invitational.
