Brereton C. Jones' Airdrie Stud has announced its stud fees for the 2022 breeding season. Cairo Prince , the leading sire of 2-year-old winners in America, will stand the season at a fee of $15,000. Among his 23 2-year-old winners is the undefeated stakes winner Cairo Memories, who will enter as one of the favorites in the Nov. 5 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1T). The leading sire of his stallion crop by both stakes winners and graded stakes winners, Cairo Prince is approaching $6 million in 2021 earnings.

Also standing for a fee of $15,000 is the farm's popular young stallion Collected . A grade 1-winning son of prominent sire City Zip, Collected has been represented by no fewer than 20 six-figure sales horses from his first crop of yearlings in 2021. An earner of nearly $3 million on the racetrack, Collected has bred books of 156, 155, and 103 mares during his first three seasons at stud.  

Exceedingly popular Champagne Stakes (G1) winner Complexity  will stand his second season in 2022 at his introductory fee of $12,500. Booked full at 158 mares in his initial season, the striking son of the hot young sire Maclean's Music  ran one of the highest speed figures of 2020 when taking the Kelso Handicap (G2) in 1:33.82, earning a 115 Equibase Speed Figure. The $375,000 Mike Ryan yearling purchase was bred by the perennially successful Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings.

Airdrie's young roster is rounded out by the grade 1-winning duo of Preservationist  and Divisidero —both set to be represented by their first weanlings in November—as well as the talented and precocious McCraken , and a mixture of proven and ascending sires in Upstart , Include, Summer Front , Creative Cause , and American Freedom .

"I believe Airdrie has earned the reputation as a stallion farm that will stand behind our product and put our breeders in position to profit in the sales ring or on the racetrack," said Airdrie's Bret Jones. "As always, we will be supporting our young and exciting roster with the full force of our broodmare band and take great pride in making the same investment in our stallions that we ask of our customers. The commercial breeder knows that we will not flood the market with excessively high booking numbers and racehorse owners know that our stallions throw runners. We are extremely bullish on this year's roster and look forward to working with the incredible breeders that have long supported Airdrie."
