Edited Press Release

The 2010 stud fee for two-time Horse of the Year CURLIN, who stands at Mr. and Mrs. William S. Farish's Lane's End Farm near Versailles, Kentucky, has been reduced to $40,000 stands and nurses.

In a statement released today, majority owner Jess Jackson discussed the decision:

“We are delighted with the three CURLIN foals that we've seen so far, and are eagerly awaiting our home bred CURLIN babies.

We also know that times are tough for our friends in the breeding business. To continue to attract the best book of mares for CURLIN and further help our breeders, we have decided to lower CURLIN's fee for the 2010 breeding season to $40,000.”

A classic winner of seven Grade 1 events, CURLIN is North America's richest racehorse with earnings of $10,501,800. CURLIN, who entered stud last year, is by Lane's End's two-time leading sire Smart Strike.
