Ocala Stud announces 2020 stud fees
Thursday, December 5, 2019

Ocala Stud has set 2020 stud fees for its roster of 12 stallions for the upcoming breeding season, led by Girvin, whose fee will be unchanged at $7,500 S&N for his second year at stud. The roster also features The Big Beast, the No. 2-ranked Florida Freshman Sire of 2019, who will stand for $6,000 S&N.

Girvin, a leading 3-year-old of his crop, won the 2017 Haskell Invitational Stakes (G1) and also registered back-to-back stakes wins in the Risen Star Stakes (G2) and the Louisiana Derby (G2), prior to starting in the Kentucky Derby (G1) as the leading point earner on the Kentucky Derby leaderboard. He retired having finished first or second in seven of 10 starts and he banked $1,624,392. Girvin was Florida’s most popular stallion of 2019, covering 149 mares in his first book. His first foals will arrive in 2020.

The Big Beast’s initial crop came out running. The second-ranked Florida First-Crop Sire boasts 14 winners thus far on the year led by Inspiressa who finished second to Bast in the Del Mar Debutante (G1) following an impressive 1 ¼-length maiden special weight score at Del Mar in her career debut. The Big Beast is one of only two Florida freshman sires with double-digit winners.

Awesome Slew, like Girvin, will stand his second season at stud in the coming year for $5,000 S&N. The multiple Graded stakes winner and versatile son of Awesome Again won stakes ranging in distance from seven furlongs to 1 1/16 miles. He won or placed in 12 Graded stakes over three seasons and over nine different racetracks, recording five triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures. He will welcome first foals in 2020.

Ocala Stud is also home to Adios Charlie, Florida’s No. 1 General Sire of 2019. The son of Indian Charlie will stand the upcoming season for $4,000 S&N.
