Coolmore introduce dual Guineas winner Churchill at €35,000

Record-breaking earner Highland Reel to stand at €17,500

Churchill: will command the same fee as Australia and Caravaggio
1 of 1

Churchill - the champion two-year-old in Europe in 2016 and dual Guineas winner this year - will stand at Coolmore at a fee of €35,000 next season, the same price commanded by dual Derby hero Australia and new recruit Caravaggio.

Churchill hails from the speedy family of Airwave and Jwala and became Galileo's first two-year-old colt to score at Royal Ascot when he landed the Chesham Stakes last year - the first victory in a seven-race unbeaten run which culminated in his Guineas double in May.

Joining him on the Coolmore roster will be Highland Reel, who has had his fee set at €17,500.

A high-class juvenile, Highland Reel won his maiden at Gowran Park by 12 lengths and justified odds-on favouritism in the Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, with jockey Joseph O'Brien describing him as "an absolute machine".

Bred on the same Galileo-Danehill cross as the likes of Frankel and Teofilo, Highland Reel became the highest earning European-trained horse of all time following his third in the Breeders' Cup Turf on Saturday. His record includes six memorable wins at the highest level, including the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at the royal meeting this year and an all-the-way win in last year's Breeders' Cup Turf.
