Paris, KY – Grade 1 winner Mastery will stand his first season at Claiborne in 2018 for a fee of $25,000 LFSN, the Paris, Ky., farm announced Oct. 12th.

This talented son of Candy Ride (ARG) was a perfect 4-for-4 during his racing career. His flawless juvenile campaign included decisive victories in both the Los Alamitos CashCall Futurity (G1) and the Bob Hope Stakes (G3).

This year, Mastery firmly established himself among the top three-year-olds in the country. In the San Felipe Stakes (G2), he trounced a deep field that included multiple Grade 1 winner Gormley by nearly 7 lengths, while earning an impressive 105 Beyer Speed Figure. In total, his combined margins of victory equaled nearly 20 lengths.

Stud fees will remain the same for top international sire War Front ($250,000 LFSN) and Eclipse Champion Sprinter Runhappy ($25,000). Fees for the remaining stallions on Claiborne’s roster will be announced following the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.

Runhappy (Super Saver—Bella Jolie) – $25,000 LFSN
War Front (Danzig – Starry Dreamer) – $250,000 LFSN
