Lomar Park owner Fred Peisah has reduced the fees for the resident sires at his Werombi nursery.
Arena (Danehill) has been discounted from $13,750 to $9,350 and Valixir (Trempolino) has gone from $18,700 to $13,200. Both fees include GST.
Arena was a Group1 winner of the Victoria Derby and Canterbury Guineas and was runner-up in the AJC Australian Derby, VRC Australian Cup and STC Tancred Stakes.
To date Arena has supplied over 120 winners including 17 who have won or been stakes placed. They include the Group 1 winners Regal Cheer (STC Coolmore Classic), Rena’s Lady (AJC Oaks) and Top Spin (Singapore Derby) and the stakes winners Raise (AJC Adrian Knox Stakes) and My Lady’s Chamber (Canberra National Sprint).
Valixir won eight races and defeated Group 1 winners Rakti and Starcraft in the 2005 Ascot Queen Anne Stakes (1600m). And, in the winning the Longchamp Prix d’Ispahan, he accounted for Elvstroem.
Valixir is bred to be a valuable balance for the Danehill dynasty.
He is from a different branch of the Native Dancer male line to Mr. Prospector, being by the Sharpen Up Arc de Triomphe winner Trempolino from a stakes winning daughter of French 2000 Guineas winner Linamix.
The Sharpen Up influence has done well with Danehill. He is the sire of the dam of Danehill Dancer and his son Diesis is the broodmare sire of Churchill Downs (Blue Gum) and Coolmore shuttler Dylan Thomas.
