Central Banker Leads McMahon Of Saratoga’s 2021 Stallion Roster

McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., revealed the advertised fees for its 2021 stallion roster, led by fast-rising sire Central Banker.

“Anne and I purchased our Fitch Road farm 50 years ago this March,” said farm owner Joe McMahon. “We feel fortunate that we have been well supported by the New York breeding community all of those years. Recent months have been very hard for everyone involved in racing and breeding, and we are reducing the fees for our stallions for the 2021 breeding season to reflect the challenges brought on by 2020.”

Central Banker, a Grade 2-winning son of Speightstown, will stand the upcoming season for an advertised fee of $6,000. His runners are led by multiple stakes winner and graded stakes-placed Bankit, whose earnings are now in excess of $700,000, and multiple stakes winner Newly Minted.

Central Banker covered 114 mares in 2020, and he currently sits second on New York’s general sire list by progeny earnings this season, with $1,878,786.

Solomini, a Grade 1-placed son of Curlin, will stand for $5,000. He stood his first season in 2020, and he covered 123 mares, the most of any New York stallion.

Rounding out the roster is Redesdale, a son of Speightstown whose first foals are weanlings of 2020. He’ll stand for $3,000 in 2021 after covering 66 mares in 2020, and 81 mares in his inaugural season a year earlier.

“We feel confident that the New York breeding program remains the strongest of its kind in the world, and our goal is to offer the best valued and most attractive stallions outside of Kentucky,” McMahon said. “We hope these reduced fees help New York breeders through this difficult time, and we look forward to working with our breeders in the coming months.”

Following are the advertised 2021 fees for the McMahon of Saratoga stallion roster:

Central Banker – $6,000
Redesdale – $3,000
Solomini – $5,000
