1 of 1

The seven stallions that were added to the Darley roster in 2017 have all have their first mares scanned in foal.

Champion European two-year-old Belardo, a five-year-old son of Lope De Vega standing his first season at Kildangan Stud at a fee of €15,000, has proved popular with Irish breeders. As has his stablemate The Last Lion, whose juvenile campaign culminated with Group 1 success in the Middle Park Stakes. The son of Choisir has been introduced at a fee of €12,000. 

Another Middle Park winner to be added to the Darley roster for 2017 is Charming Thought, with the son of Oasis Dream taking up residence at Dalham Hall on a fee of £8,000. While Territories, a Prix Jean Prat-winning son of Invincible Spirit, also at Dalham Hall has had his fee set at £12,000. 

Reverse shuttle sire Exosphere, a son of Lonhro that broke the track record when winning the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes, has his first southern hemisphere foals due to arrive later this year. He is currently standing at Haras du Logis in France at a fee of €6,000. 

Two stallions have joined the Darley Club for 2017, Buratino, a Coventry Stakes-winning son of Exceed And Excel who stands at Kildangan at €5,000, and three-time Group 2 winner Bow Creek, a son of Shamardal, who stands at Haras du Logis on a fee of €4,000.
