Three Chimneys announced their 2015 stallion roster on Thursday afternoon.
The line-up is as follows:
Will Take Charge – $30,000
Exchange Rate – $20,000
Sky Mesa – $20,000
Strong Mandate – $10,000
Yes It's True – $10,000
Brilliant Speed – $5,000
Caleb's Posse – $5,000
Big Brown – TBA
“We are extremely excited about the prospects for this coming year,” said Grant Williamson, Director of Stallion Nominations and Sales at Three Chimneys.“Champion Will Take Charge headlines what we believe to be some strong offerings for breeders. He is a $3.9 million earning champion that distinguished himself at the top of his class. But you have to see him to believe him – he's an amazing specimen to go along with proven talent and Broodmare of the Year Take Charge Lady is his dam … it doesn't get any better than that.
“Strong Mandate is another exciting addition to Three Chimneys. He is Tiznow's only Grade 1-winning two-year-old colt, he was one of the leading juveniles of his generation before injury took him off the Triple Crown trail, and his pedigree is stellar.
“Additionally, the proven horses in our stallion barn represent great value and are having superior years on the track with their progeny. Exchange Rate has a Breeders' Cup favorite and 11 Stakes Winners, Sky Mesa has 11 current Stakes Winners, Big Brown has 2 Breeders' Cup entrants, and Yes It's True is having a banner year with 8 Stakes Winners, led by Grade 1 King's Bishop Stakes Winner The Big Beast. Rounding out the roster are exciting young stallions Caleb's Posse, winner of the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, and Dynaformer's Grade 1-winning son Brilliant Speed, who both have first crop foals this year and offer breeders true upside potential.
“One of the reasons I joined Three Chimneys was because of the exceptional energy at the farm. My goal is to spearhead a customer-centric approach to our stallion business which puts our customers first. I'm looking forward to working with fellow breeders this upcoming season to help them realize their goals with our stallions.”
