We are delighted to announce that Gr.1 Prix Jean Prat winner GOOD GUESS will stand his first season in 2024 at a fee of €17,500.
A 420,000gns yearling from the family of Classic-winning miler Russian Rhythm, Good Guess retires as the winner of four races highlighted by this season’s Gr.1 Prix Jean Prat, in which he defeated Gr.1 winners such as Chaldean, Hi Royal and Meditate, and Gr.3 Prix Djebel.
Good Guess is the first Gr.1-winning son of Kodiac to stud in Britain and Ireland and shares his sire with successful sons such as Ardad, Coulsty, Kodi Bear and Prince Or Lir, all of whom have been represented by Gr.1 performers in the past two seasons.
KODIAC himself will stand for €35,000. Now the sire of close to 200 stakes performers, Kodiac enjoyed another excellent year on the track highlighted by the Gr.1 achievements of Good Guess in addition to Relief Rally, his fourth winner of the Gr.2 Lowther Stakes, Gr.2 Minstrel Stakes winner Zarinsk, and the exciting Gr.3 Killavullan Stakes winner Atlantic Coast. Yearlings by Kodiac sold for up to €430,000.
Leading young sire MEHMAS will stand for €50,000 following a year highlighted by the top American miler Chez Pierre, winner of the Gr.1 Maker’s Mark Mile at Keeneland, Gr.2 Buena Vista Stakes winner Quatroelle, and Gr.1 3yo sprinter Believing. Yearlings by Mehmas sold for up to €500,000.
COTAI GLORY remains at €12,500. Already a proven Gr.1 sire, he has been represented this season by the tough 2yo Tiger Belle, winner of the Gr.3 Prix d’Arenberg and Listed Marwell Stakes, and Gr.3-winning 3yo Excellent Truth.
Champion sprinter STARMAN, winner of the Gr.1 July Cup and Gr.2 Duke Of York Stakes, will stand at €10,000. We are looking forward to seeing his first foals sell over the next few weeks.
Gr.2 July Stakes winner PERSIAN FORCE will stand his second season at €8,000. Also placed in the Gr.1 Phoenix Stakes, Gr.1 Prix Morny and Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes, this top-class and tough son of Mehmas will have first foals next year.
INNS OF COURT remains at €5,000 following a start with his first runners that places him as a top three first-crop sire in Europe by number of winners. To date, he has been represented by 23 winners out of his first crop, among them the Listed Blenheim Stakes scorer Megarry as well as the stakes-placed Gaenari, Lia Fail and Vicuna.
