2021 Stallions fees

The first yearlings of European champion Almanzor were received with enthusiasm this year, realising an average price of over 100,000€ and top prices of 280,000€ and 250,000 Guineas. The best son of Wootton Bassett will see his first juveniles race next year, in Europe, Japan and the USA.
Almanzor, who has benefitted from strong support from both shareholders and breeders, covered a book of 135 mares in 2020 and will stand for 30,000€ for his third season.

After a first season during which he received 137 mares, of which over a third were black-type performers or producers, City Light will see his first foals born in 2021. France’s first stallion son of Siyouni, who produced 6 Group 1 winners in 2020, City Light is his only son at stud, having performed at the highest level from 2 to 5 years old over distances of six and seven furlongs. His fee of 7000€ remains identical in 2021.

The Haras d’Etreham’s Australian stallion, son of the exceptional sire of sires Redoute’s Choice, Scissor Kick enjoyed success with his first two-year-olds this year. He will continue at the competitive fee of 5000€ in 2021. With over 70% of his runners placed, already 4 winners of 7 races, and progeny which appear progressive, the best is yet to come for this young sire.

Two headline recruits have joined the stud recently.

The first of these is triple Gr.1 winner, classic hero at three, Group scorer at two and impressive third in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at four years old in 2020, Persian King. The best son of Kingman at stud, and the first in France, he impresses with his racing career, his status as France’s best miler, and his well-balanced conformation and excellent locomotion. He will stand for a fee of 30,000€ for his first season.The Haras d’Etreham and Cambridge Stud (NZ) created a partnership in 2019 for the future stallion career of a leading son of Kodiac, Hello Youmzain.

A Group 2 winner at 2 and Group 1 winner at 3, this son of the leading juvenile sire and a daughter of the exceptional Shamardal confirmed his status as one of Europe’s best sprinters at four years old with victory in the Gr1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. Powerful, tough and strong, Hello Youmzain boasts a remarkable physique and moves very well. His fee for 2021 is fixed at 25,000€.


The Haras d’Etreham is also a major operator in the jumps sphere and boasts a high-class offer of stallions for this discipline.

One of the leading European National Hunt sires, Saint des Saints continues to cover in 2021 for a fee of 15,000€.

Based at the Haras de la Tuilerie, close to Argentan, the Haras d’Etreham now offers three young and promising jumps sires.

The son of Montjeu, Masked Marvel, saw his first French four-year-olds perform well throughout the season. His reputation and attraction as a sire continue to grow in France, Britain and Ireland, as demonstrated by the number of his progeny exported as three-year-olds to join Willie Mullins, Gordon Elliott, Paul Nicholls or Nicky Henderson. The leading stayer of his generation in England is proposed at 5,000€ for the new breeding season.

Thanks to his excellent racing career and impressive physique, the best stallion son of Saint des Saints, Goliath du Berlais, covered a full book of high-class mares during his first season. We look forward to seeing the first foals of the champion four-year-old steeplechaser, winner of the Gr.1. Prix Ferdinand Dufaure. In great demand in 2020 for a fee of 7,500€, he continues at the same price in 2021.

The new arrival in the jumps section of the stud will be the sole Irish Derby winner to stand in France. Latrobe, by Camelot (Montjeu) and out of a Shamardal mare, completed a brilliant racing career for trainer Joseph O’Brien, with 3 victories and 12 places in 18 outings. He will begin his stud career at the fee of 4,000€.

In view of the forthcoming breeding season, Nicolas de Chambure declared, “I would like to take advantage of this announcement of our stallion feed to reconfirm our policy of limiting our sires to 140 mares. This seems to us to be the best way to respect and support breeders who place their trust in our stallions. This allows them, during this uncertain period, to be assured of a certain exclusivity and value of their progeny on the market. In a competitive context, pricing policy does not suffice. Breeding and stallion management are activities which must be considered with a long-term view.”
