1 of 1

Derrinstown Stud on Wednesday confirmed details of its 2019 stallion roster, with Awtaad once again spearheading a four-strong line up at an unchanged fee of €15,000.

The Irish 2,000 Guineas winner is a son of Cape Cross, whose stallion sons Sea The Stars and Golden Horn have already made an impact at stud. His first foals are set to hit the market in the coming weeks and he has stood for the same fee during his first two years at Derrinstown.

Joining him once again on the roster will be Tamayuz, a son of Nayef whose fee will also remain at €12,500 for a second year. His yearlings averaged more than 40,000gns in 2018, with his colts selling for a high of 200,000gns.

The sire of 21 stakes winners overall, Tamayuz has been represented in 2018 by the likes of Joel Stakes hero Mustashry and saw his fee boosted to its current level following a fine 2017, when Precieuse and Blond Me struck at the highest level on his behalf.

Like Awtaad, Dark Angel's son Markaz has his first foals being offered for sale this year and likewise his fee has remained unchanged at €6,000, while veteran Haatef, a son of Danzig, completes the roster standing once again for €2,000.
