Rockridge Stud of New York announced on Monday its 2017 stallion roster and fees. One of the farm's top stallions, Posse, was purchased earlier this year by Haras Rapetti in Uruguay, and attempts to bring him back to New York for the 2017 season were unsuccessful.

Rockridge also announced stallion fees for its seven other stallions.

Both D'Funnybone and Giant Surprise were represented by two stakes winners apiece in 2016, while Honorable Dillon's first crop of foals were well-received at auction, selling for as much as $45,000, with an average of more than $18,000.  Soaring Empire has two winners from just seven starters in 2016 and is third on the state's freshman sire list by progeny earnings.

Micromanage will have his first foals in 2017, and Trinniberg will have his first 2-year-olds in 2017. Millionaire newcomer War Dancer will have limited availability for lifetime breeding rights.

Rockridge Stud Fees:

  • D'Funnybone – $2,500
  • Giant Surprise – $5,000
  • Honorable Dillon – $5,000
  • Micromanage – $5,000
  • Soaring Empire – $3,500
  • Trinniberg – $3,500
  • War Dancer – NEW – $5,000
