RATHBARRY STUD'S new recruits for 2017, Ajaya and Kodi Bear, will both stand at a fee of €10,000.

Ajaya, a son of budding sire of sires Invincible Spirit, won the Gimcrack Stakes at two, while Kodi Bear, a son of popular commercial sire Kodiac, won the Group 2 Celebration Mile.

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.

Also pitched at €4,000 are Moohaajim and Xtension, who both have their first foals on the ground.

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.
