Three Chimneys Farm will host its January open house and stallion show Monday through Friday, Jan. 13-17.

The farm's eight stallions, headlined by 2017 Horse of the Year Gun Runner, will be available for inspection each day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch will be served daily.

Gun Runner, whose first foals arrived in 2019, bred 337 mares in his first two seasons. His fee will remained unchanged, at $70,000, for 2020. Gun Runner's first foals to go to auction averaged $344,275, topped by a $750,000 filly at the Keeneland November auction.

Palace Malice, whose fee for 2020 was set at $25,000 following Structor's dynamic score in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf. Structor, who also won the G3 Pilgrim Stakes at Belmont Park, was named an Eclipse Award finalist in the 2-year-old male division. Fast Anna, at $10,000 for 2020, also had three stakes winners from his first crop, including two-time black type winner Fast Scene.

Sky Mesa, the veteran of the Three Chimney's roster, had a banner year in 2019. His latest Grade 1 winner Perfect Alibi took both the G1 Spinaway Stakes and G2 Adirondack Stakes during the Saratoga meet. Sky Mesa, who will stand in 2020 for $15,000, now has 70 lifetime stakes winners and 135 stakes horses lifetime.

Both Funtastic ($5,000) and Sharp Azteca ($10,000) will be standing their second season at Three Chimneys in 2020. Grade 1 winner Funtastic, by More Than Ready, is a half-brother to Horse of the Year Saint Liam and to the dam of Gun Runner. Sharp Azteca was also a Grade 1 winner and earned more than $2.4 million.

Rounding out the stallions available for viewing are Will Take Charge ($15,000) and Strong Mandate ($5,000). Will Take Charge led all 2019 Second-Crop sires by graded stakes winners, while Strong Mandate is a top-10 Second-Crop sire by stakes winners and winners.
