Helmet, sire of Group 3 Australian scorers Limestone and Archives as well as northern hemisphere Group 1 winner Thunder Snow, will remain at an unchanged price of A$16,500, but fellow shuttler Sepoy has had his fee slashed to A$16,500 from A$33,000.
Australian Cup scorer Humidor and multiple Group 1 winner Palentino have contributed to another successful year down under for Teofilo and he will stand at an unchanged fee of A$44,000 (£25,567/€31,122).
Alastair Pulford, head of sales for Darley stallions in Australia, said: "We're delighted by our stallions' achievements during the Easter Yearling sale and are equally as proud of their continuing success on the racetrack.
"As well as our established stars, we have some very exciting new additions standing at stud this year and with such an impressive and diverse roster, I'm certain there is something to suit every breeder."
