At a fee of just $60,000, Lane’s End Farms’ Union Rags offers one of the best values at stud in America. Union Rags, the leading fourth-crop sire by graded stakes winners, Grade 1 winners, and graded stakes horses, proved his progeny are as successful at the sales as they are on the track after another standout Keeneland September Sale.
A total of 51 Union Rags yearlings sold at the Keeneland September Sale for a gross in excess of $11.1 million. He had a median of $180,000 and his average of $218,308 ranks him amongst the top 12 leading sires of the sale. Although he is alongside some of the nation’s elite stallions, his stud fee is markedly lower than his competitors. Empire Maker, who averaged $282,404 stands for $85,000, while Speightstown—who averaged $236,233—is at $70,000. Ghostzapper, who finished the sale with a lower average than Union Rags at $214,208, stands for $25,000 more than the Lane’s End Stallion.
Lane’s End’s Classic-winning stallion had two $1 million-dollar yearlings at the September Sale—a colt and a filly. A half-sister to G2 victress Point of Honor sold to Godolphin, while a colt from the family of Strong Mandate and Romantic Vision was purchased by the partnership of SF Racing, Starlight Racing, and Madaket Stables. Other notable buys include Shadwell’s $750,000 colt from the family of Discreet Dancer, and Repole Stable and St. Elias Stable’s $725,000 colt from the immediate family of Storm Flag Flying.
