RATHBARRY STUD'S new recruits for 2017, Ajaya and Kodi Bear, will both stand at a fee of €10,000.
Rathbarry's headline sire Acclamation, represented this year by Prix de l'Abbaye winner Marsha and high-class juvenile Mehmas, has had his fee held at €30,000.
The stud's stalwart Tagula, sire of top sprinter Limato and star miler Canford Cliffs, is also at the same price as in 2016 – €4,000.
Rathbarry Stud's Catherine Cashman said: "We've held Acclamation at the same fee even though he had such a great year – we feel it's right to give breeders a chance in this market."
She added that the new boys had been creating a buzz.
"Ajaya is by the right sire with a stallion's pedigree and should pass on speed, and he's a very correct horse," she said.
"Kodi Bear was a good seven to eight-furlong horse and should suit a cross-section of mares. There has been a lot of interest in both."
Cashman also said she thought Moohaajim and Xtension represented "very good value" going into their third covering seasons.
