Taylor Made Stallions has set its 2020 stallion roster and fees, led by California Chrome who will stand the upcoming breeding season for $30,000 S&N.
Joining California Chrome on the roster are Not This Time, who will stand for $12,500 S&N, Midnight Storm and Mshawish who will each stand for $10,000 S&N, and Daddy Long Legs, who will stand for $7,500.
A two-time Horse of the Year, seven-time Grade 1 winner of $14,752,650 and the richest Kentucky Derby winner in history, California Chrome was represented this year by in-demand first yearlings of $325,000, $260,000, $235,000, $225,000, $200,000, etc. Purchasers included Baoma Corp., Solis/Litt, Bobby Flay, Shadai Farm, Crow-Sharp Venture, Woodford Thoroughbreds, and Willis Horton Racing.
Not This Time, a romping winner of the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes, runner-up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, and a half-brother to Liam's Map, the winner of the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile and a leading first-crop sire, is the most brilliant 2-year-old ever by sire of sires Giant's Causeway. Not This Time's first-crop yearlings proved popular in the sale ring this year, selling for $375,000, $250,000, $240,000, $200,000, etc.
Midnight Storm, a brilliantly fast Grade 1 winner by Pioneerof the Nile, was a seven-time graded stakes winner who banked $1,783,110 in a stellar racing career. His first foals arrived this year and will be yearlings in 2020.
Global superstar Mshawish, Medaglia d'Oro's only Grade 1 winner on dirt and turf and his fastest dirt miler, saw his first yearlings sell for up to $235,000 at Fasig-Tipton Saratoga and $125,000 at Keeneland September.
Daddy Long Legs, a multiple graded stakes-winning millionaire by Scat Daddy, topped all first-crop sires in Chile, siring 2-year-old champion colt Fallen From Heaven, a Group 1 winner on dirt and a Group 2 winner on turf in his initial crop, before relocating to Taylor Made for the 2019 season.
