Darley Announce 2024 Fees

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday April 23

Darley in Australia has announced the fees for 18 G1-winning stallions set to stand in New South Wales and Victoria for the 2024 breeding season with Too Darn Hot (GB) afforded a big rise in the wake of his exciting colt Broadsiding winning the Group I ATC Champagne Stakes last Saturday.

Anamoe will have his first foals arriving this spring!

Heading the roster is the nine-time G1 champion Anamoe at $121,000. Last year, Anamoe covered the best book of mares ever afforded a Darley first-season sire, meaning breeders supporting him this year will be following the progeny of a book that included 11 G1 winners, 69 Stakes winners as well as the dams of Joliestar, King’s Legacy, Private Eye, Bivouac and more.

Too Darn Hot has been given a rise from $44,000 to $110,000.

Anamoe is supported in NSW by the highly promising Too Darn Hot at $110,000, who is currently leading the Australian first season sires list by earnings and winners. His fee rises from the $44,000 that he has stood for in the past four seasons.

 Anamoe’s sire Street Boss, who has had another great season thanks to the likes of Pericles, Traffic Warden and Another Wil, heads the Victorian division of the roster at $66,000.

The 2024 roster sees the addition of a new quartet of stallions that include two Godolphin Australian homebred Group I winners.

Cylinder ($44,000), who, like his successful sire Exceed And Excel, was the best sprinter of his generation. Cylinder is accompanied by Golden Mile ($16,500), the victor of the stallion-making G1 Caulfield Guineas. They join the Northwood Park stallion roster in Victoria.

Kelvinside's roster gains strength with the inclusion of Native Trail ($27,500), the undefeated European Champion two-year-old and Classic-winning three-year-old. His victories in the top European races put him in the company of elite horses such as Shamardal, Dubawi, Pinatubo and Too Darn Hot.

Native Trail (GB) - Champion 2YO Colt and a triple G1 winner.

He is the best juvenile colt by Oasis Dream and descended from the same Green Desert sire line as I Am Invincible, all of which makes his introductory fee look extremely attractive.

Additionally, G1 winner Triple Time ($22,000), by none other than Frankel, will join the Kelvinside lineup.

Triple Time (IRE) won the G1 Queen Annes Stakes at Royal Ascot.

A Stakes-winning two and three-year-old, he progressed to put on a dazzling display at four in the G1 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, defeating four Champions and the winners of 16 G1s, including Inspiral, Light Infantry and Modern Games.

In 2024, Darley’s pair of freshman yearling sires, Bivouac ($55,000) and Ghaiyyath ($27,500), drew considerable attention from top yearling buyers. The yearlings by World Champion Sprinter Bivouac sold to $675,000, while those by the World’s best racehorse, Ghaiyyath, reached $275,000.

The full list of fees is below.
