Joe McMahon announced Oct 16, “Anne and I purchased our Fitch Road farm 50 years ago this March. We feel fortunate that we have been well supported by the New York breeding community all of those years. Recent months have been very hard for everyone involved in racing and breeding, and we are reducing the fees for our stallions for the 2021 breeding season to reflect the challenges brought on by 2020.”

Central Banker , a grade 2-winning son of Speightstown , will have a reduced fee from $7,500 in 2020 to $6,000 LFSN in 2021. Central Banker covered 114 mares in 2020 and had four 2020 stakes horses, including multiple stakes winner and graded stakes-placed Bankit, now the earner of over $700,000, and multiple stakes winner Newly Minted ($515,988). Solomini , a multiple grade 1-placed son of Curlin , bred 123 mares (the most for any New York stallion) in his first year at stud and will have a reduced fee from $6,500 to $5,000. Redesdale  bred 66 mares in his second year at stud and 81 mares in 2019 and will stand for $3,000, down from $5,000.

“We feel confident that the New York breeding program remains the strongest of its kind in the world, and our goal is to offer the best valued and most attractive stallions outside of Kentucky," McMahon said. "We hope these reduced fees help New York breeders through this difficult time, and we look forward to working with our breeders in the coming months.”
