Cambridge Stud Announce 2020 Fees

Media Release - Thursday May 14

Cambridge Stud are pleased to announce their 2020 stud fees for popular young sires Almanzor and Embellish.  Importantly, all contracts will now be on live foal payment terms, acknowledging the difficult climate facing breeders in New Zealand.

Almanzor stands at $30,000 plus GSTThe roster will be headlined by European Champion 3YO Almanzor, who will stand his third season at the famous nursery. Almanzor covered full books in his first two seasons at stud and will again stand for a fee of $30,000 + GST in 2020.

“Almanzor could not have enjoyed a better start to his stud career,” said Cambridge Stud CEO Henry Plumptre. “He was well received in both hemispheres covering full books of 140 and 160 mares in New Zealand in his first two seasons.”

“In his third season in France, European breeders took note of his exceptional foal sales at Tattersalls and Arqana and he is booked out at 140 mares again,” Plumptre added.  “The quality of his stock has been reflected in New Zealand with an outstanding line of foals from his maiden crop that included 52 stakes winners or dams of stakes winners.”

Almanzor is again joined on the roster by New Zealand 2,000 Guineas winner Embellish. The royally bred son of Savabeel was very well received in his first season at stud and represents exceptional value in 2020 at a fee of $4,000 + GST.

Plumptre explains, “As the only Group One winning son of Savabeel standing at stud, Embellish represents amazing value coming as he does from New Zealand’s prepotent sire line and with a magnificent pedigree.  He has the looks that go with a $775,000 yearling price tag and the race performance to support his conformation.  He bred 138 mares last season and Cambridge Stud will again be strong supporters in 2020.”

Embellish stands at $4,000 plus GST

As stated, in an effort to provide more support to breeders, all 2020 stud fees will be payable when the mare produces a live foal.
