Deep Impact Remains World's Most Expensive Sire

Deep Impact Remains World's most expensive sire

2000 Guineas Winner - Saxon Warrior's sire Deep Impact, will remain as the world's most expensive sire for a second season in a row.

Shadai Stallion Station confirmed the news on Tuesday that the 16yo Japanese sensation, will stand for a second year at the mouthwatering fee of ¥40 million, which equates to about £276,000.

Another son of his - Real Steel; who won the 2016 Dubai Turf, will stand alongside him in his first year on stud duties, at a slightly reduced price of ¥2m - £13,800.

Mind Your Biscuits - a dual winner of the Dubai Golden Shaheen sprint, will match that fee, having retired after his final start at Churchill Downs, where he finished down the field in the Breeders Cup Classic - won by Accelerate.

After Deep Impact, the second most expensive Shadai stallion is Lord Kanaloa, who will stand at double his fee from last year, after his daughter Almond Eye landed the Japanese Fillies' Triple Crown this year, and is very much a serious threat to Enable's bid for a third Arc.

The 10yo (Lord Kanaloa), who retired back in 2013, has had his price doubled from ¥8m to ¥15m.
