Ace Impact Fee Sets French Record for First Season Sire

Tara Madgwick - Thursday October 26

Undefeated Arc winner Ace Impact is the first grand-son of Frankel to go to stud and his fee has been set at €40,000 by Haras de Beaumont for 2024.

Ace Impact will stand for a record first season fee in France in 2024.

Trained Jean-Claude Rouget, Ace Impact won the Group I Prix du Jockey Club, defeating subsequent G1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes winner Big Rock and the Group I Arc de Triomphe earning him accolades of the world’s best three year-old in 2023.

Stud manager Mathieu Alex said: "Haras de Beaumont’s new recruit is the most exciting addition to the young stallions ranks in France. Furthermore, no stallion has commanded such a high covering fee at the outset of his French stallion career.

"Ace Impact proved himself to be an exceptional athlete. Unbeaten in a six-race career, he won the Prix du Jockey Club in record time, and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe with plenty in hand.

"The recent victory of Big Rock at Ascot yet again underscored the brilliance of his win in the French Derby, which he won by three and a half lengths. His lightning turn of foot, coupled to his warrior mindset, combined to make him an outstanding performer.

"He has a lot going for him to as regards becoming a top-class stallion. We are very grateful for the early support received by European breeders. The fact he is beginning his stallion career in France at Haras de Beaumont is very positive news for our country."
