American Pharoah’s Retirement Will Be Better Than Yours: $30-60 Million Stud Fee Per Year
Peyton Manning may think that he has it made when he officially begins his retirement, what wth all his Papa John's, Nationwide and Budweiser money. But compared to American Pharoah, Manning is strictly low rent.
For one thing, he ain't making a $200,000 per night stud fee.
American Pharoah, the first Triple Crown winner since 1978 (Manning only won two Super Bowls, and these were several years apart), is now retired. And that means, hello ladies. According to Monte Reel of Bloomberg, the 4-year-old is probably going to command one of the highest stud fees ever -- in the neighborhood of $200,000 per foal produced.
Roughly that will be $30-60 million per year, depending on how good the foals turn out to be on the trackm and how many times American Pharoah will mate. Bloomberg:
If successful, American Pharoah will likely be mated to over 100 mares during the 5-month mating season. According to Prior, "particularly energetic" horses can be mated up to 200 times per year.
American Pharoah will breeding mares in the spring of 2016. Ashford Stud owns the stud rights, the second-highest stud fee in the U.S., behind that of Tapit. But American Pharoah's could rise even higher if his foals are successful.
