Malibu Moon to stand for $60,000 in 2011

Monday, November 08, 2010

Leading sire Malibu Moon is enjoying a banner year in 2010, ranking towards the top of the North American stallion ranks by earnings, graded stakes winners, grade one winners, overall winners, etc. The son of A.P. Indy will stand the upcoming 2011 breeding season at Spendthrift Farm for a fee of $60,000, stands and nurses.

“Malibu Moon has proven himself to be a top sire with each year being better than the one before,” said B. Wayne Hughes, owner of Spendthrift Farm. “We thought he earned a bump this year and wanted to put him at a price that breeders would feel is still good value.”

Malibu Moon's progeny earnings in 2010 are approaching $8 million, with six graded stakes winners led by Grade 1 winners Devil May Care, Life At Ten and Malibu Prayer. He was also a leading sire at the yearling sales this year, with individuals selling for $700,000, $650,000, $500,000, etc.
