A thoroughbred stallion owner in North America is waiving the services fees on all his stallions, in recognition of the economic hardship likely to be faced by small breeders because of the global coronavirus pandemic.
All stallions owned by Charles E. Fipke will stand the 2020 season at no charge. The stud fee will be waived for breeders who have already signed contracts, and zero-fee contracts will be issued for any new seasons for the remainder of the 2020 breeding season.

Owner and breeder Charles Fipke will be waiving the 2020 breeding fees on all his stallions in order to provide some relief to small breeders who could be particularly hard-hit by the economic downturn from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to longtime consultant Sid Fernando.
"What can I say? Small breeders will especially be affected by the economic conditions, and they are the backbone of this industry," Fipke said in statement.
"None of my stallions stand for more than $5,000, and they are primarily supported by small breeders. Because I own my stallions outright and don't have shareholder responsibilities, I am able to do this, with the support of the farms where they stand.

A total of 30 people and horses comprised of 15 Thoroughbred and 15 Standardbred candidates, have been selected to appear on the voting ballot. A 20-person Election Committee for each breed will determine the recipients in their respective categories. Results will be announced Tuesday, April 7th. 
The five categories selected by the Standardbred nominating committee to appear on the 2020 Standardbred ballots are: Driver, Trainer, Female Horse, Male Horse and Veteran Horse 
The 2020 Standardbred Driver Ballot features Paul MacDonell, Ed Tracey and Randy Waples
Paul MacDonell’s driving career is highlighted by both consistency and superstars, with earnings surpassing $1 million for 33 consecutive years, due in part to piloting such horses as Hall of Fame members Somebeachsomewhere, Admirals Express and Invitro. The Guelph resident’s major stakes victories include three Metro Paces, five Confederation Cups, and eight Breeders Crowns as well as a record 16 Ontario Sires Stakes Super Finals to his credit. The popular and affable driver was awarded an O’Brien Award as the 2008 Canadian Driver of the Year and to date has chalked up more than 15,000 top three finishes, 5,623 wins and has driven horses to in excess of $122 million in purse earnings.
