Rich Hill announces 2024 stallion fees

18 April 2024

Off the back of another exceptional season for its high-performance stallion roister, Rich Hill Stud has announced its service fees for 2024.

Proisir, Shocking, Ace High and Vadamos all sired Group One winners and Satono Aladdin also continued to build on his burgeoning Southern Hemisphere record to sire another five Group winners.

Rich Hill’s champion sire Proisir has continued his rise through the Australasian sire ranks and has now sired six individual Group One winners over the last 20 months, while his commercial return to breeders has soared to new levels.

At New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale in January, his daughter out of Donna Marie sold for $1.6 million to set a benchmark record-price for a filly sold at auction in New Zealand.

Proisir will stand at a fee of $80,000 + GST for the 2024 breeding season.

Rich Hill’s leading young stallion Satono Aladdin has had another stellar year with his progeny to the fore both on the racetrack and in the sale ring. His yearlings were in huge demand at Karaka 2024, selling to a top price of $900,000 and a Book 1 average of $235,000 for 14 lots sold.

He was crowned Champion Two-Year-Old Sire and Leading Second Season Sire last season through the exploits of his Champion Two-Year-Old Tokyo Tycoon and Champion staying filly Pennyweka.

Satono Aladdin will stand at a fee of $65,000 + GST for the 2024 breeding season.

Ace High, Rich Hill’s dual Group One-winning son of High Chaparral, has made an immediate impression with his first crop three-year-olds.

Ace High is the Leading New Zealand Second Season Sire by combined Australian-New Zealand winners with his tally of 16.

He has already sired outstanding Group One-winning filly Molly Bloom, stakes winner Drakaina, stakes placed My Lips Are Sealed and a host of other promising gallopers including the recent eye-catching Victorian debut winner Angland.

His Karaka 2024 yearlings sold up to $280,000 with a Book 1 average of $164,000.

Ace High will stand at a fee of $15,000 + GST for the 2024 breeding season.

Shocking, a dual Group One-winning Street Cry son and proven top-flight producer, continues to enhance his reputation as one of New Zealand’s consistent sources of high-class racehorses.

Shocking has already sired seven stakes performers in 2023/24, including Group One winner El Vencedor and Victorian stakes winners Here to Shock and Mark Twain.

Shocking offers breeders a real opportunity to breed a superior racehorse at a fee of $12,500 +GST for the 2024 breeding season.

The progeny of Rich Hill’s Group One-winning French miler Vadamos have enjoyed another rewarding season on the racetrack.

His star mare La Crique has added another Group One victory to her resume this season, while Mosinvader and Devastate have both performed at Group Two level.

His Karaka yearlings sold up to $220,000 and we can look forward to another successful season for his progeny on the racetracks of Australasia.

Vadamos will stand at a fee of $9000 + GST for the 2024 breeding season.
