BALLYLINCH STUD has announced its covering fees for its seven-strong stallion roster for the 2017 breeding season.

Lope De Vega, a nine-year-old son of Shamardal, will stand his seventh year at Ballylinch at a career-high fee of €50,000, a slight increase from his 2016 fee of €45,000.

He was represented in 2016 by Belardo, who won the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes and will join the roster at Darley's Kildangan Stud in 2017.

Lawman, who added a second Classic to his CV when Harbour Law landed the St Leger, will stand his fourth consecutive breeding season at €25,000.

The stud has made two exciting additions to its ranks for 2017, with New Bay – a Group 1-winning son of Dubawi – being introduced at €20,000 and Fascinating Rock – a dual Group 1-winning son of Fastnet Rock – starting out on a fee of €10,000.

Make Believe, a dual Group 1-winning son of Makfi, will stand his second season on stallion duty at an adjusted fee of €17,500, down slightly on his introductory fee of €20,000. He covered 120 mares in 2016.

Dream Ahead, the sire of Donjuan Triumphant, will stand his sixth season at stud at a career-low fee of €12,500.

Beat Hollow, the sire of this year's Irish St Leger winner Wicklow Brave, remains unchanged at €6,000.
