Taylor Made Stallions has announced fees for it's 2013 roster of stallions, headlined once again by leading sire Unbridled's Song who will stand for $60,000 stands and nurses.

Unbridled's Song stands as one of the most accomplished active sires in the world, siring 42 graded stakes winners—including 14 Grade 1 winners—and three Breeders' Cup champions lifetime. He currently has 96 stakes winners, just four shy of a rare sire landmark of 100 career stakes winners. Unbridled's Song is also the leading active sire by lifetime yearling sales average with an average of $299,974. In 2012, Unbridled's Song has been led by Saratoga Grade 1 winner Emcee, and a pair of recent Breeders' Cup runner-ups: graded stakes-winning 2-year-old colt Noble Tune, and graded stakes-winning 3-year-old colt Unbridled's Note.

Eskendereya, the dominant winner of the 2010 Wood Memorial (G1) and still the only 3-year-old this decade to run back-to-back Beyers as high as 109 & 106 around two turns, had his first weanlings sell this Fall, including at the current Keeneland November sale where a $210,000 colt by Eskendereya  topped the session for weanlings on Thursday. The son of Giant's Causeway, who will have first yearlings in 2013, will stand for $17,500 stands and nurses.

Both Northern Afleet and Forestry enjoyed another productive year in 2012, as they both sired Grade 1 winners and division leaders. Northern Afleet was led by reigning sprint champion Amazombie, who was again a Grade 1 winner and leading sprinter in 2012. Forestry was led by Shackleford, the 2012 Met Mile (G1) winner and one of North America's leading sprinters and milers. Northern Afleet and Forestry will both stand 2013 for $8,000 stands and nurses.

Old Fashioned, the multiple graded stakes-winning son of Unbridled's Song, will also stand for $8,000 stands and nurses. Old Fashioned, whose first crop of 2-year-olds will race in 2013, was well-received with his first yearlings this year with an average of $60,440 from 50 sold. His $360,000 filly sold at F-T Saratoga Select represented the highest priced yearling by a first-crop sire this year.

Taylor Made Stallions also welcomes the addition of Astrology, who will stand his first season in 2013 as one of just two graded stakes-winning juveniles at stud by the great sire of sires, A.P Indy. Astrology's introductory fee will be $7,500 stands and nurses.
