Hill 'n' Dale Farms announced their 2019 stud fees. New to the roster is Eclipse champion and multiple Grade 1 winner Good Magic by Curlin, as well as the undefeated Grade 1 winner Army Mule, one of the leading sprinters in the country who posted a 114 Beyer Speed Figure, the highest up to a mile in 2018.

“Our roster continues to expand, offering breeders proven stallions at the highest level in Curlin and Kitten's Joy, coupled with emerging important sires like Violence, Kantharos, and Maclean's Music,” said Hill 'n' Dale President John G. Sikura. “Champion Flintshire has great first foals, some of which will be offered in November. Yearlings by Bayern and Secret Circle rewarded breeders handsomely at the sales this year. Our two new additions of champion Good Magic and undefeated Grade 1 winner Army Mule give breeders a chance to get involved in stallions that we think will be our next generation of important stallions. Stalwart Midnight Lute is a top 20 sire and is represented by Grade 1 winner Midnight Bisou. Stormy Atlantic has more than 100 black type winners including Breeders' Cup winner Stormy Liberal.

“The increase in fees for several of our stallions represents racetrack and sales success and the decision was not taken lightly,” Sikura continued. “We continue to offer breeders stallions that are on the rise. This success should offer proof that supporting Hill 'n' Dale stallions is a wise investment in this competitive marketplace.”
