    Village Jolt ?

    I see Village Jolt had a treble on Wednesday night at Bendigo but he is not even standing at stud now that Empire is using frozen semen only.
    I have spoken to two studmasters that said they made inquires about standing him but couldn't get him.
    Does anyone know if he is still fertile or if he will be available in future?
    Don't die wondering !

    Interesting note Rick, your girl might prove to be the best of them
    I don't know the answer to your question but I see a decline in his services (which did happen in 14-15 and did turn around)
    His total services between 10-11 and last season have been

    65, 92, 88, 81, 65, 25, 65, 48, 48, 26

    You will see from this Classic Families link that there is not a lot to recommend him

    http://classicfamilies.net/CF/Offspr...arnings&AD=ASC

    Just A Jolt $521k, Eagle Jolt $428k, Giant Jolt $324k are his top overseas earners
    2 of these have Real Artist for their dam sire but they also have a nice doubling up of Cam Fella on their bottom line

    While Mynameskenny $199k is his top Oz earner

    It is hard to find any black type among his progeny

    ps He is not on among USTA's 131 featured stallions

    It would seem that Fashion Farms in New Hope, Pennsylvania where Village Jolt was retired to stand in 2006, no longer exists either as their site and facebook page have not been updated for 3yrs

    A lot of budget stallions would dream about getting that many mares Kevin.
    His figures are pretty good for a $2000 or less fee. 31% winners to foals, 70% winners to starters, $26,300 average per starter.
    The industry needs cheap options to cater for all budgets.

    Fair enough Rick, you are a breeder while I actually only did it once long ago.
    If I was to have a crack again, I would rather spend a little more on a stallion that has thrown a champ - so that I could at least pretend that I was a chance of winning the jackpot
    I know I would have to spend over $3k but as you know all foals cost the same to raise so the extra $k becomes a small fraction
