Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Sets 2023 Stud Fees; Stallion Open House to be Held Saturday, December 10

Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Stallions LLC have announced stud fees for the 2023 season.

An addition to this season’s roster is multiple graded stakes-winning millionaire Warrior’s Charge. He will give New York breeders access to the speedy Munnings sire line in the form of a proven two-turn horse. From a physical perspective, Brad Cox calls Warrior’s Charge “a very well-built horse, with great bone and very sound throughout his entire career.”

On the track, Cox reported “Warrior’s Charge was a very good horse from Day 1. He had speed, he could carry around two turns, and was competitive at the top level.”

As of this release, two stallions on the roster are ranked among the top three stallions in New York. With just three crops to race, War Dancer is currently ranked second and sired 2022 graded stakes winner Dancing Buck to boost his already impressive resume. Perennial top New York sire Big Brown is currently ranked third on the state’s general sire list. He is represented by Somelikeithotbrown, who notched another graded stakes win in 2022 and is the leading money earner amongst New York-sired runners.

King for a Day, who sired the top-selling $130,000 New York-sired weanling at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga October fall mixed sale, will stand his third season after covering 147 mares in his first two seasons.

Multiple Grade 1-placed millionaire and Kentucky Derby runner-up Lookin At Lee will return for his third year at stud representing the Lookin At Lucky sire line. Waiting, the only son of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah standing in the Eastern part of the U.S., returns for his second year. Waiting comes from a powerful female family, including his second dam, Eclipse Award winner Wait a While.
