Excitement is building around Rich Hill Stud's exciting young sires.
Vadamos has received a warm welcome from Australasian breeders in his first two seasons and he will stand for an unchanged fee in 2019 of NZ$15,000 + GST.
An elite level performer in Europe, he won eight races including the Gr.1 Prix du Moulin at Longchamp for trainer Andre Fabre.
"Vadamos has been extremely well supported in his first two years at stud covering 159 mares in 2017 and 117 mares last season," Rich Hill's John Thompson said.
"His first crop foals have made a great impression with breeders and will be four on offer at the New Zealand Bloodstock May Sale."
Satono Aladdin will also again stand at NZ$12,500 + GST in his second season at Rich Hill.
Deep Impact has continued his meteoric rise adding nine further individual Group One winners in the last 12 months, taking his current total to 40.
"For a horse with his pedigree, race record and magnificent looks, his fee represents outstanding international value," Thompson said.
"Satono Aladdin is the complete package and we are looking forward to the arrival of his first crop foals next spring with great anticipation."
The Rich Hill stallion roster is rounded out by Proisir, who is currently third on New Zealand's leading first season sires' list and will stand for an unchanged fee of $7000 + GST, and proven Group one sire Shocking who will stand at $8500 + GST.
"All our stallions are at very exciting phases in their respective careers," Thompson said.
