In response to a softening bloodstock market, Coolmore has adjusted most of its 2024 fees, following the lead set by Australia’s pre-eminent thoroughbred farms.

While the breeding conglomerate is still deciding on a 2024 fee for Wootton Bassett, proven Coolmore sires So You Think ($82,500), Pierro ($55,000), and Pride Of Dubai ($22,00o) have had their fees dropped despite continuing to make headlines in 2023/24.

Wootton Bassett, tipped to become a shuttle sire of considerable influence, stood in Australia for $93,500 last year.
