Darley in America announces stud fees for G1 winners Essential Quality and Maxfield

Champion two-year-old and G1 Belmont Stakes winner Essential Quality will stand the 2022 season at a fee of $75,000 while G1 Breeders’ Futurity winner Maxfield’s fee will be set at $40,000

Following a third in his final career start, the G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic, Darley Sales Manager Darren Fox said of the Belmont and Travers Stakes winner, “His body of work is just tremendous: an Eclipse Champion at two, a Classic winner at three, a son of Tapit with a fantastic female family. He’s already generated quite a lot of interest and we couldn’t be more excited about him retiring to Jonabell Farm.”

Maxfield, a son of Darley stallion Street Sense, will make his final appearance on the track in the G1 Clark at Churchill Downs on November 26th, and will then head to Jonabell to begin his next career.
