    So I know this is a bit early to start this discussion but does anyone know of any knew horses we can expect to stand at stud in 2014? I know Violence will stand at Hill N Dale and Take Charge Indy will stand at WinStar.

    They think that's what the market will bear. If they fill his book at that price, then they were correct. If they can't fill his book, then they'll offer incentives or reduce the price in 2015. That said, I tend to agree that it's a bit steep.

    Someone on another forum said, "when they were at Claiborne a couple of weeks ago, the staff there showed them War Front and spoke about his stud fee going up to over 100k. They also said that he might be going into the top stall at Claiborne which is empty now and was Bold Ruler's, Secretariat's and Easy Goer's stall." So Claiborne thinks very highly of him if they are even thinking about doing that. I didn't even know who he was really until it was announced that Zenyatta was being bred to him. He has had great success so far and I think it will only get better. I hope so anyway.

    Yup, i saw that. Nothing but disagreement with this news. I would have to agree. Technically hes retiring sound tho, his hock injury was a scrape or cut, so that is good.
