Coolmore Stud has announced its stallion fees for 2015. The roster of 28 stallions includes five new recruits - Australia, Kingsbarns, No Nay Never, Ruler Of The World and War Command.
Dual Derby winner Australia has been put in at a fee of €50,000, double the fee of fellow Coolmore inmate Camelot. No Nay Never, a Royal Ascot and Prix Morny winner last year, will stand his first season at a fee of €20,000. The son of Scat Daddy (by Johannesburg) finished second in the Turf Sprint at the Breeders' Cup last weekend.
A nomination to the 2013 Epsom Derby winner Ruler Of The World will cost €15,000 and Kingsbarns, without a win since the 2012 Racing Post Trophy, stands at €6,000.
Starspangledbanner returns to the covering shed after a spell in Australia following fertility problems and gone from the list are Choisir, Danehill Dancer (retired), Declaration Of War (to Ashford), Duke Of Marmalade (sold to South Africa) and Peintre Celebre.
Of the 23 returning stallions listed, 10 maintain the same covering fee as this year, six move down and four go up. Galileo and Fastnet Rock remain 'private' while Starspangledbanner's fee of €25,000 compares with the fee of €15,000 he commanded when first retired ahead of the 2011 season.
Mastercraftsman's first crop of three-year-olds included classic winners The Grey Gatsby and Kingston Hill, and his fee goes up from €35,000 to €40,000.
Rip Van Winkle's first runners hit the track this year and included Group 1 winner Dick Whittington. His fee goes from €20,000 to €25,000.
Toast Of New York's gallant runner-up finish in the Breeders' Cup Classic gave a boost to his sire Thewayyouare, whose fee increases from €4,000 to €5,000.
Zoffany's first crop of yearlings sold well in recent weeks and his fee goes up from €7,500 to €12,500.
