Triple Crown winner American Pharoah will again shuttle to Australia this year for the Southern Hemisphere’s breeding season, Coolmore announced this week.

Currently in his third Northern Hemisphere season, the now6—year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile will command a fee of $66,000 Australian — roughly $51,000 in American dollars — which is the same amount as his last go-around in Australia.

American Pharoah, who is based at Coolmore’s Ashford Stud in Kentucky, had a full book last year in Australia. Other Ashford stallions headed to Australia are Air Force Blue and Vancouver.

Coolmore’s Tom Magnier labeled American Pharoah among the “international stars” that will stand at Jerrys Plains, the operation’s Australian farm.

The Australian breeding season begins in September; American Pharoah should return to America in December.
