STOCKWELL THOROUGBREDS has announced that service fees for its A-Team stallions – ARTIE SCHILLER (USA) and AL MAHER – will remain unchanged for the 2020 breeding season.
The two highly successful stallions will stand at $11,000 and $8800 respectively at the Diggers Rest base in Victoria.
“We are very fortunate to be standing two highly successful and proven stallions in a market that does not often offer such consistency of results year in and out,” said Stockwell’s Brodie Becker.
“ARTIE SCHILLER and AL MAHER have established results, both in the yearling market and on the racetrack, through a genuine and hard earned legacy.
“Neither was afforded the massive books of high grade commercial mares to launch their careers others have been gifted, but both have proven to be genuine upgraders and with records to be extremely proud of.”
ARTIE SCHILLER and AL MAHER have both developed envious stakes results of better than 5.0% to starters which places them in elite company.
ARTIE SCHILLER progeny have now amassed $74 million in earnings with 52 stakes winners of 96 races. His strike rate of winners is running at 72%.
AL MAHER has produced 35 stakes winners of 80 stakes races and career earnings of almost $50 million. He has established a 64% winner to runner record.
“We recognise the commercial trends in the industry and that some stallions are considered “hot” each season, but in a year of revision and reality – such as has been imposed heading into the coming season – we could not be more proud to offer two stallions who deliver each year and protect mare owners from exposure to expensive risks,” Becker said.
