Tally-Ho Stud's record-breaking sire Mehmas has been the subject of another fee increase and will stand for €60,000 in 2023, off the back of further Group 1 success courtesy of Minzaal's Haydock Sprint Cup score. 

The son of Acclamation, now the sire of three individual top-flight winners from 11 Group winners and 19 black-type scorers, was also responsible for Group 2 July Stakes winner Persian Force, a plucky sort who was also second in the Phoenix Stakes and Prix Morny.

Mehmas also has an unbeaten Group 3-winning juvenile in Horris Hill Stakes scorer Knight, a full-brother to this term's Group 3 Prix Imprudence winner and Prix de la Foret runner-up Malavath. Knight certainly has Classic claims for 2023. 

The eight-year-old Mehmas retired to Tally-Ho for an initial fee of €12,500 in 2017, decreasing to €10,000 in 2018 and 2019 before a further drop to €7,500 in 2020.

Off the back of a sensational season with his first runners when he was crowned champion first-season sire, when his top performers included the likes of Middle Park Stakes scorer Supremacy, he was upped to €25,000 for 2021 and then €50,000 this year.

Cotai Glory: Tally-Ho Stud stallion has had his fee upped

The venerable Kodiac, who will turn 22 in the new year, has had his fee reduced to €40,000 from €65,000 this season. The son of Danehill is responsible for 175 stakes performers, including 37 individual Group winners, six of whom have come at the top level. 

Second-season sire Cotai Glory has had a fee increase to €12,500, from €8,500 in 2022. The multiple Group winner and King's Stand Stakes second had his first Group 1 winner courtesy of Prix de l'Abbaye heroine The Platinum Queen, who was also second in the Nunthorpe and Flying Childers Stakes. 

The son of Exceed And Excel has also sired this term's Group 3 Premio Primi Passi winner Bottle Of Bubbles, as well as a trio of Listed winners. 

Kessaar, who has made a promising start with his first crop of runners, will remain at €5,000 alongside Inns Of Court, whose first crop of yearlings have sold for up to 175,000gns. 

July Cup winner Starman will stand at a trimmed fee of €15,000, from €17,500 this year, while Group 1-winning sire Galileo Gold has relocated to Al Shaqab Racing's Haras de Bouquetot.
