Lord Nelson - NEW - $25,000

I'd add another $5,000 just for him surviving laminitis. ;) :P Really hope he has a great career.
ETA: Is is just me...or does it feel like Spendthrift has a LOT of stallions? :shock:
I wonder what a new stallion (or older who may not be in fashion ATM) has to accomplish to keep a stall there?

They have 24 and WinStar has 22. WinStar has a larger percentage of well-established stallions, though. Spendthrift's strategy seems to be something like throwing a lot of stuff at a wall to see what sticks. There was a time when Lane's End stood a similar number, but their current roster is 16.

I mean, we all knew it was coming, but gosh dang, Into Mischief for $100,000. He started at $12,500 way back when in 2009.

His stud fee is a moot point as his book has been full since August.

I think Spendthrift is also currently experimenting with various fee/payment structures not to mention various bloodlines. I remember reading something once that made me go "huh. That's certainly outside the box." but now I can't remember what it was exactly.

I loved Congaree as a racehorse. Glad he's still around, regardless of fee or size of book.

Who am I forgetting as to why they wouldnt have Quality Road's fee set yet?

Maybe Abel Tasman in the Distaff?

Another young stallion who's babies I'd keep an eye on at the sales next year is Daredevil. For $7,500, I think he's very attractive and affordable, and I was impressed with the handful of weanlings I've seen so far this year.

Abel Tasman is a nice filly and I'm realizing Quality Road has Salty on his resume as well. Frank Conversation is slated to run in the BC, too. Have to give QR some credit - he's getting some good runners.

Nyquist at $40k seems a bit much to me. I love Uncle Mo, but man, that's quite a bit for a Derby winner who didn't do much else. I like Animal Kingdom and I hope his babies keep running well on the dirt. I feel like he's a bubble horse in more ways that most because of his "grassy" pedigree.

Hard Spun seems like a bargain, especially compared to Nyquist at the same price.

Isn't 40k the same price Nyquist stood at this season? I guess he got enough interest to maintain.

I really expected this old guy (he'll be 26 next season) to be pensioned. $5k is a bargain basement price for him IMO.

How old was Mr. P when he was pensioned- he was up there, but cant remember.

He never was. He stood the 1999 season (age 29) and then coliced in the summer and was put down.
