Too Darn Hot Most Expensive Mate At Darley Stud For 2020

Too Darn Hot

The superstar Too Darn Hot is settling into his new life at Darley stud after he was retired half way through the flat season this year due to an injury and it has now been announced it will cost 50,000 for his duties

For a first year sire of his calibre it looks to be a fair price with the three year olds sire Dubawi now costing £250,000 after he created 24 additional Group winners throughout the 2019 flat season.

His leading lights for the season were obviously John Gosden's Too Darn Hot landing the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and also the Prix Jean Prat at Deauville.

Others included Coronet for Gosden and Ghaiyyath and Old Persian for trainer Charlie Appleby and owners Godolphin with the blue silks having many fond memories of Dubawi past and present.

New sires this year that will be familiar names to many racing fans include Masar who landed the 2018 Epsom Derby and he will go for £15,000 and stand at Dalham Hall Stud with his father New Approach.

Superstar three time Group One winner Blue Point will also sit with his sire Shamardal at Kildangan Stud for a much heftier fee of £45,000

Shamardal has had his best ever season at stud with him having some superb winners which include the French 1000 Guineas with Castle Lady and also three unbeaten two year old in Earthlight, Victor Ludorum and the highest rated juvenile of the season with Pinatubo.

Others that are worth mentioning are Golden Horn who won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe back in 2015 and he will now go for £40,000 which is £10,000 less than last season and Farhh is upped to £12,000 for £10,000 after a successful season having the QE II winner King Of Change.

(Credit Racing Post) Sam Bullard, Darley's director of stallions, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer an extensive range of quite exceptional stallions in Britain, Ireland and France in 2020.

"It's remarkable to reflect on how the stallion yards have grown over the decades here at Darley – when Dubai Millennium won at Nad Al Sheba in March 2000, the roster was just a dozen strong – and it's particularly satisfying for the whole team to be standing outstanding sons of stallions who have also stood their careers here.

"We couldn't do it without the breeders who invest so much time and skill in producing the horses who are at the heart of our great sport. We'll do all we can to help them fulfil their ambitions and hope to be part of their plans again in 2020."
