I made that reference and I absolutely disagree in this particular case . The marketing advisors are the same advisors to a few other circuit stallions. They are overpriced and it has nothing to do with wanting to make the same amount of money they might of made in EU. It has everything to do with the ownership and purchase price of the stallion.
There was reference made to the stallion that was standing in Europe for under $1,000 but has jumped to $2,500 now he's in NA. Well, that calculated figure ties in well with the expectation of grossing 1/3 of the income he would have made in Europe! If his stud fee were $800 in Europe, it is now just about 3 times as much here in order to compensate for the significantly fewer mares he will breed here
