Mshawish’s stud fee is tops for now because a stud fee for California Chrome hasn’t been announced yet and won’t until after the Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I) on November 5. It’s easy to say his 2017 fee will be much more than $20,000
Other breeding fees for the 2017 season announced by Taylor Made Stallions include: Astrology ($6,500), Graydar ($12,500), and Northern Afleet ($6,500).
“These are very exciting times at Taylor Made Stallions,” said Taylor Made Stallions Vice-President Ben Taylor. “We could not be happier to have the opportunity to grow our stallion roster with the likes of two new multiple grade I winners of the caliber of Mshawish and California Chrome. Our entire staff is energized and ready to get to work in serving the breeders this upcoming breeding season.”
A few career highlights of the 2017 Taylor Made Stallions roster:
- Mshawish earned $2,421,351 during his career and retired with a 8-2-3 record. He has 24 career starts under his belt, winning five U.S. stakes and won stakes in Dubai and France as well.
