The first foals by triple Grade/Group 1 winner Karakontie continue to impress as they arrive and develop around the Bluegrass. Gainesway, which stands Karakontie and has provided significant mare support to the stallion, has several of Karakontie’s first foals at the Lexington property.
Gainesway’s three-time Grade/Group 1 winner Karakontie sired his first reported foal Jan. 19, a filly bred by Jim and Pam Robinson’s Brandywine Farm and foaled at their Paris, Ky., property.
Gainesway announced its 2017 stud fees Nov. 10, with leading sire Tapit again headlining the roster and standing for an industry-leading fee of $300,000.
Karakontie, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) and French Two Thousand Guineas (G1) at 3, has arrived at Gainesway to begin stud duty in 2016.
