Can The Man will not shuttle to Spendthrift Australia for the 2016 breeding season. The Victorian-based farm has announced it will waive the 2015 service fee for all breeders who supported Can The Man in his first season a year ago. Spendthrift Australia has also held discussions with all “Share The Upside” program participants of Can The Man to receive a complimentary service to one of its other stallions in 2016, as well as other future considerations, in addition to waiving the 2015 service fee.
“In our inaugural season last year, we brought in a diverse group of what we thought were four young and exciting stallion prospects to offer Australian breeders. Can The Man is a precocious and exceptional-looking son of our up-and-coming sire Into Mischief, and he's been well-received in America. However, he simply was not as well received in Australia, so we did not feel it would be to anyone's advantage to bring him back in 2016,” said Spendthrift's B. Wayne Hughes. “Spendthrift will always strive to put the breeders' best interests first, and we will continue to try and offer stallions and programs from which the breeders of Australia can prosper. We have reached out to those who supported Can The Man, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to offer breeders a beneficial solution in a rare case like this when things don't work out.”
Can The Man stood in 2015 for a fee of $3,850 inc. GST. Spendthrift Australia's 2016 stallion roster will include Hampton Court ($8,800 inc. GST), Jimmy Creed ($8,800 inc. GST), and Warrior's Reward ($11,000 inc. GST).
