1 of 1

Second-season sire sensation Mehmas has had his 2021 fee doubled to a career high of €50,000 after another excellent campaign, with Tally-Ho Stud also introducing July Cup winner and top-class sprinter Starman at an opening fee of €17,500. 

Mehmas, a dual Group 2-winning son of Acclamation, broke the record books with his first crop of two-year-olds in 2020 and has had another stellar year, with Del Mar Oaks heroine Going Global adding a second top-flight winner to her sire's CV. 

The rising star of the stallion ranks has also been represented by Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte scorer and Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf runner-up Malavath, Flying Childers Stakes winner Caturra, Gimcrack and July Stakes scorer Lusail and Anglesey Stakes winner Beauty Inspire, from ten individual stakes winners in Europe this term.

The mighty Kodiac will remain at an unchanged fee of €65,000, having been supplied by top-flight winners Campanelle, who landed the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, and Criterium de Saint-Cloud scorer El Bodegon, as well as Oh So Sharp Stakes winner Fast Attack and Killavullan Stakes scorer Glounthaune. 

The latest addition to the County Westmeath operation is July Cup winner Starman, a top-class son of Dutch Art who will stand his debut season for a fee of €17,500. 

Starman: new recruit to Tally-Ho Stud

Recently crowned Cartier Champion Sprinter, Starman won five of his eight starts for Ed Walker and owner-breeder David Ward, including the Newmarket Group 1 and the Duke of York Stakes. He was also second and third in the Sprint Cup at Haydock and Prix Maurice de Gheest. 

Cotai Glory, Europe’s leading first-crop sire by winners and prize-money, has had his fee increased to €8,500 from €5,000 this term. 

The son of Exceed And Excel has sired 32 individual winners, led by Prix Robert Papin victor Atomic Force and eight black-type two-year-olds overall. 

Fellow first-crop sire Galileo Gold has also had his fee increased, this time to €7,000 from €5,000. The Classic-winning son of Paco Boy has sired six black-type performers, including Group 1 Phoenix Stakes hero Ebro River, French Group 3 winner and Prix Marcel Boussac third Oscula, plus Listed winner System. 

The roster is completed by Kessaar, a dual Group-winning son of Kodiac whose first yearlings have sold for up to €100,000, and Inns Of Court, a multiple Group winner and Group 1-placed son of Invincible Spirit. The pair will stand for unchanged fees of €5,000.
