Sea The Moon's fee holds steady after solid start with first juveniles
Bobby's Kitten fee trimmed to £10,000 while Sir Percy remains at £7,000
Sea The Moon will head a three-strong roster at Newmarket's Lanwades Stud in 2019 following a year in which his debut crop made a significant impression on the track.
The German Derby winner, a son of Sea The Stars, has been represented by an impressive 15 winners during 2018, including a pair of Group 3 winners in Germany in Quest The Moon and Noble Moon, as well as the 525,000gns yearling Three Comets, Listed-placed for Roger Varian and owner Sheikh Mohammed Obaid.
A son of the Monsun mare Sanwa, Sea The Moon will stand his fifth breeding season at Lanwades Stud for an unchanged fee of £15,000.
He will be joined once again by Bobby's Kitten, whose appeal may well have been bolstered in 2018 thanks to the exploits of Roaring Lion, who like him is a son of Kitten's Joy.
Bobby's Kitten's first foals will hit the market this year and his fee has been clipped from £12,500, at which he stood for his first two years at Lanwades, to £10,000 for 2019.
Completing the roster is Derby winner Sir Percy, who will stand once again for £7,000, as he has every year since 2015.
The Lanwades Stud roster is sadly notable for the absence of Archipenko, who died last December due to a rare form of lymphoma at the age of 13.
His loss is accentuated by the exploits in Hong Kong of the brothers Time Warp and Glorious Forever, who came home first and second respectively in the Group 3 Sa Sa Ladies' Purse at Sha Tin on Sunday.
