Change in Violence’s 2024 Stud Fee Announced

In a statement released Dec. 3, Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa announced that the 2024 stud fee for successful sire Violence   will be reduced from the previously announced $60,000 to $40,000.

“We are announcing that Violence will now stand for $40,000 stands and nurses in 2024, down from the previously announced fee of $60,000,” said Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa president John Sikura in a statement released Sunday evening. “At the end of last breeding season, Violence had a period where he was missing too many of his mares. We raised his fee to not only reflect his race track success but to lessen demand for the stallion. In evaluating a recent veterinary opinion on the management of his book, we feel confident he can cover a maximum book of 125 mares in 2024.

“We will accommodate breeders with constant communication regarding the ideal booking schedules for their mares and ‘double’ all mares if possible. Violence is an important sire and we feel this adjustment will allow more breeders to access the horse at a price more than competitive in the marketplace. It’s a tough time for breeders with stud fees rising in an ever-polarized market. I think this is good for the stallion and good for breeders.”

Through Dec. 12, Violence ranked 12 on the general sires list.
