Vinery's fees for 2017 include new recruit Star Turn at A$22,000
All Too Hard takes a trim to A$44,000
Vinery Stud has announced its stallion fees for 2017 with the high-class sprinter Star Turn joining the roster at A$22,000.
The three-year-old Star Witness colt was trained by Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes, who produced him to win the 5½f Group 2 Schillaci Stakes and to finish third in the Coolmore Stud Stakes.
Two father-and-son combinations reside at the Hunter Valley farm. Casino Prince will stand at a fee of A$11,000, while his champion three-year-old son All Too Hard - a half-brother to Black Caviar - has seen his fee cut to A$44,000 from A$55,000 last year.
The shuttler More Than Ready, who finished a career-high fourth in the 2012 Australian sires' table by prize-money, will stand his fourth consecutive season at A$66,000, while his American-foaled son Pluck - winner of the 2010 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf - will stand at A$11,000.
Press Statement is due to have his first foals on the ground this year. His trainer Chris Waller, who trains horse-of-the-moment Winx, produced him at two and three to win the JJ Atkins Stakes and Caulfield Guineas, both at the highest level. His fee has been reduced from A$27,500 last year to A$22,000.
