DARLEY ANNOUNCE FEES

Newgate Also Set Fees For Their Seven Stallions

Exceed And Excel (Danehill) and Medaglia d’Oro (El Prado) are the headline acts of Darley’s roster for the 2015 season, which features three new stallions in Hallowed Crown (Street Sense), Brazen Beau (I Am Invincible) and Sidestep (Exceed And Excel).

Exceed And Excel and Medaglia d’Oro will each stand for a fee of $110,000 (inc GST) at Darley’s Kelvinside base.

The fee is double that commanded by Medaglia d’Oro in 2014. A top-class stallion in USA, whose 12 Kentucky-bred Group/Grade One winners include American Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra, he is enjoying a strong season in Australia as the sire of four stakes winners including unbeaten Golden Slipper Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) hero Vancouver. Between them, his progeny have won close to $4,000,000 so far this season.

Exceed And Excel’s fee is unchanged from 2014 following a season which has yielded ten stakes winners to date. They include the Group-winning two-year-olds Headwater, who was successful in the Silver Slipper Stakes (Gr 2, 1100m), Furnaces and Ottoman.
