The Schick family’s Windsor Park Stud, in Cambridge, has announced the stud fees for its seven-strong stallion roster headed by triple Group One winner Charm Spirit at $18,000+GST.
The son of Invincible Spirit has made an excellent start to his stud career in both hemispheres, with the Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained Group Two winner Aretha his best performer from his first crop to date.
Hitherto the sire of five stakes performers, Charm Spirit’s Listed winning son Kick On will contest Saturday’s Gr.1 2000 Guineas (1600m) at Newmarket.
Triple Group One winner Turn Me Loose stands for $15,000+GST and the first weanlings by the good looking bay are due to be presented at the Karaka May Sale in a fortnight’s time.
Dual Horse of the Year, Mongolian Khan, will stand for a fee of $12,500+GST and his first yearlings have averaged in excess of $70,000.
Also at that fee is proven sire Rip Van Winkle, the sire of 26 stakes winners including boom galloper Te Akau Shark.
Emerging sire Shamexpress, who has 8.9% stakes winners to runners, is also at $12,500+GST, while Rageese and Vanbrugh, whose eldest progeny are foals, complete the roster at $5,000+GST apiece.
