Cambridge Stud is pleased to announce its stallion service fees for the 2008 breeding season.


The current champion sire of Australia for 2007/08, Zabeel, will again stand at a fee of $100,000 plus gst.

Zabeel’s progeny have been flying this season with his list of Group 1 winners including the 2007 Melbourne Cup winner Efficient. He was the leading sire at the 2008 Karaka Yearling Sales where his 36 premier yearlings averaged NZ$366,914.


One Cool Cat, the champion European 2yo and multiple Gr. 1 winner, stands again at $15,000 plus gst. He was the leading New Zealand-based first season sire at the 2008 Karaka Yearling Sales where his 24 horses sold for an average price of NZ$192,708.


Keeper will be standing at a fee of $15,000 plus gst. He has sired two Group 1 winners in 2007/08 namely Insouciant (NZ 1000 Guineas) and Keepa Cruisin (Levin Classic). His Karaka Premier Yearlings averaged $169,285 (7 sold).


Stravinsky, the sire of 45 individual stakes winners including six individual Gr. 1 winners, will again stand at a fee of $40,000. Cambridge Stud is pleased to welcome him back on the stallion roster this year after the equine influenza virus prevented him from coming to New Zealand last year.
