NEWS: Phoenix Of Spain to start at €15,000
on 08 November 2019
Invincible Spirit will once again head the stallion roster at the Irish National Stud in 2020

IRISH 2000 Guineas winner Phoenix Of Spain will stand at a fee of €15,000 in his first season at the Irish National Stud. The son of Lope De Vega is one of nine stallions who will cover mares under the INS banner next year.

Topping the roster once again is Invincible Spirit, who will be 23 in 2020. His total number of stakes winners now stands at 230 and this year his stars on the track were headed by classic winner Magna Grecia, Invincible Army and Inns Of Court. His fee has been lowered from €120,000 to €100,000.

Free Eagle, whose first crop of two-year-olds acquitted themselves well this year, remains at €12,500, and there is also no change for National Defense (€8,000) and Dragon Pulse (€6,000).

Reduced by 25%

The fee for Irish Champion Stakes winner Decorated Knight has been reduced by 25% to €9,000 for his third season at stud.

Elusive Pimpernel jumps from €1,000 to €3,000, the fee payable in advance of covering. Similar terms apply to Palavicini (€1,000) and to Famous Name (€1,000), the latter standing under the INS banner at the Pym family’s Anngrove Stud in Mountmellick, Co Laois.
