Shadwell are pleased to announce the 2024 nomination fees for its five stallions which will feature under a new, unified Shadwell banner.

Standing at Beech House Stud, United Kingdom:

BAAEED - £80,000 1st Oct SLF
MOSTAHDAF – New for 2024 - £15,000 1st Jan SLF
MOHAATHER - £12,500 1st Jan SLF

Standing at Derrinstown Stud, Ireland:

MINZAAL - €15,000 1st Jan SLF
AWTAAD - €5,000 1st Jan SLF

Shadwell’s new UK stallion base at Beech House Stud will stand Mostahdaf for the 2024 breeding season. He is introduced at an attractive fee of £15,000.

Stephen Collins, European Bloodstock Manager: “Shadwell are delighted to welcome Mostahdaf to the stallion roster for 2024. He was an outstanding winner of both the Gr.1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes, where he was the highest-rated winner of the race since Dubai Millennium, and the Gr.1 Juddmonte International Stakes. A remarkable historic double as only two horses have won both races in the same season in the last 50 years.

Mostahdaf has a pedigree packed with natural speed, being closely related to champion sprinters Pastoral Pursuits and Goodricke, and he was a winner himself over seven furlongs on debut. He is a quality, well balanced, imposing individual with an athletic walk and, being a son of the remarkable Frankel, he should prove very popular with breeders.”

The roster stays headed by Baaeed, continuing unchanged at £80,000.

Stephen Collins: “Baaeed, the highest rated turf horse in the world for a decade, attracted an exceptional limited first book of 162 mares. Given his extraordinary ability, outstanding pedigree and faultless conformation, he is a truly unmissable stallion prospect. His fee in 2024 remains at a very competitive £80,000.”

Derrinstown’s Minzaal is also unchanged in his second season and remains at €15,000.

Stephen Collins: “Minzaal is the highest rated son of both his sensational sire Mehmas and the best at stud of his grandsire Acclamation. He covered 161 mares in his first season. As the highest-rated sprinter in Europe in 2022, we are expecting him to prove popular yet again.”

Mohaather will command a fee of £12,500.

Stephen Collins: “Mohaather has been strongly supported since retiring to stud, covering 366 mares in his first three seasons. His first yearlings were very well received at public auction and are stamped with their sire’s good looks, athleticism and quality. We are really looking forward to seeing his progeny hit the track next year.”

Awtaad continues at €5,000.

Stephen Collins: “Awtaad has been quoted as “Ireland’s best value sire” (Irish Field, 03.06.23) and has had a remarkable year in 2023, siring Gr.1 winners Anmaat and Anisette. A classic winner himself and a regular black-type producer, we believe he is an excellent option for breeders at only €5,000.”

Tasleet will not be standing on the Shadwell roster in 2024.

Stephen Collins: “Shadwell’s stallion roster gives breeders the opportunity to use top class stallions at affordable, commercially attractive prices. We recognise the prevailing market correction at the yearling sales this autumn and all our stallions will have special live foal concessions. We look forward to discussing your requirements for the 2024 breeding season.”

Shadwell have today launched its new banner, which formally unites the European arms; Beech House Stud and Nunnery Stud in the UK, Derrinstown Stud in Ireland and the racing operation.
