Trying to put into context, the comments regarding stud fees. Lucky Pulpit doesn't have much of a record, except for CC. I am trying to put some realism in discussion, as in, don't get your hopes up. Lucky Pulpit is unlikely to get top notch mares; owners have better and more proven choices. Why would they take that financial risk?
He may need more produce soon to be good to sustain fee. It is not high in scheme of breeding fees. I don't know enough about CA stud fees, I admit, to make the analysis you outlined. I am basically familiar with top rated Kentucky sires, and somewhat with MD sires. Malibu Moon stood inMD a long time until he was proven, and then moved to Kentucky.
If I were breeding to race in CA and were willing to take a flyer on a new stallion, I'd think hard about Richard's Kid. Talk about a durable horse. He's standing for $3,000 live foal s/n. He's at Magali Farm in CA.
Rousing Sermon is running May 23rd in the Tiznow Stakes. He will be ridden by Rafael Bejarano. He is trained by Jerry Hollendorfer and owned by Mr. and Mrs. Larry Williams.
