An excellent second season has seen Brazen Beau’s new season fee remain unchanged in spite of Darley lowering service fees for most of its stallions.
Brazen Beau will stand the 2020 season at a fee of $49,500 inc GST.
Brazen Beau was Ontrack’s champion three-year-old sprinter in the 2014-15 season with Group One wins in the Coolmore Stakes and Newmarket Handicap and he went to stud in 2015 at Darley’s Northwood Park, Victoria.
He is currently the leading second season sire of stakes winners thanks to Group 2 victors Pretty Brazen and Colada and Black Type winning colt Ideas Man.
He has left seven Black Type winners, the latest being Larimer Street who won the Listed Valley Pearl at Moonee Valley on Friday, 20 March.
Another interesting winner for Brazen Beau last week was Potentia, who cleared maidens at Geelong after running second on debut for Team Hawkes.
The highest priced yearling at the 2018 Inglis Classic Sale when purchased by Orbis Bloodstock for $480,000, Portentia is the first foal and first winner from Group 3 winning Written Tycoon mare Written Dash.
Written Dash has proven to be a great investment for Tyreel Stud, bought by Belmont Bloodstock for $410,000 at the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale when in foal to Brazen Beau with Potentia the result of the mating.
Her second foal is the Exceed And Excel colt Osamu who made $1.7 million at the Inglis Easter Sale. He has been Group 2 placed. A colt by I Am Invincible, made $700,000 at Inglis Easter this month when bought by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and the mare has a weanling filly by the same sire.
Darley’s Kelvinside Stud in New South Wales is always a highlight of the Ontrack Hunter Valley Horse and Wine Tour and this spring the property will highlight plenty of new stallion talent.
Talented colt Microphone (by Exceed and Excel) will stand his first season at $38,500 and he’ll be joined by brilliant European juvenile Too Darn Hot (by Dubawi) at $44,000.
Heading the Kelvinside roster this spring are champion sire Exceed And Excel at $132,000 (up from $$88,000) and Lonhro at $66,000 (down from $77,000).
