Breeders’ Cup Classic Winner of ‘Equestrian Horse Racing’ Over 4 billion won in breeding fee for the first year of Nix High

Nyxgo (5-year-old male), a race horse belonging to the Korean Horse Association, who won the prize money of 3.12 million dollars (about 3.7 billion won) after winning the ‘Racing Olympics’ Pick Breeders’ Cup Classic Race held at Del Mar near San Diego, California on the 7th, became a sire. It is expected to earn more than 4 billion won in the first year from breeding fees while active.

The winner of this competition, the Nyx Go, has established itself as one of the world’s best-selling race horses, as it emerged as a strong candidate for ‘Racing Horse of the Year’ at the Eclipse Awards, the year-end awards ceremony for horse racing in the United States. In January of this year, he won the Pegasus World Cup in the United States and earned $ 1.74 million in prize money, and after that, he also took fourth place in the Saudi Cup, the Cornersker Handicap Race, Whitney Stakes, and the Lucas Classic Stakes Grand Prize race. Nyx Go is a race each race that the Korean Horse Society bought for $87,000 at a Kinland auction in the United States in 2017 to secure excellent overseas stallion resources early. So far, he has won 10 races in 24 races, and has already earned more than 100 times the purchase price with a career prize of $ 8,673,135 (about 10.3 billion won).

As he built a splendid career as a racehorse, the value of the stallion also skyrocketed. According to the Korea Horse Association, before winning the Breeders’ Cup, the expected breeding fee for Nyx High was $15,000 per session, but after winning the Breeders’ Cup, it skyrocketed to $30,000. Nyxgo, scheduled to retire from racing horses after the Pegasus World Cup in January 2022, will then start sire activity in the United States.

An official from the Korean Horse Society explained, “In 2022, the debut season of a sire, the total number of matings is about 170, and if the probability of producing a foal is about 70%, it is expected that about 120 breedings will result in a mating fee of 30,000 dollars.” Accordingly, the breeding fee that NyxGo will receive as a sire in 2022 is expected to reach 3.57 million months (about 4.2 billion won). In the second and third years, the number of matings and mating fees are expected to decrease somewhat, but if the offspring of Nix High perform well as racehorses, the number of matings and mating fees may increase again from the fourth year. Nyx High, which has already earned more than 10 billion won in race horses, is expected to receive 10 billion won in breeding fees by at least the 3rd year, and it is expected to reach billions of won in the 4th to 5th years.
