The rate for breeders of brood-mares will be €4,000, the SITA newswire quoted the Turf-Rimes website. Last year, Overdose made his debut as something of a Hungarian national stud-horse in Dióspuszta, in the breeding centre Angol Telivér Ménes. There, he impregnated 38 mares. The basic fee was €3,500 but there were some rebates possible, up to 90 percent.

Overdose, already 10 years old, of British origin, was bought by Mikóczy at a Newmarket auction in November 2006 as one-year-old for a mere 2,000 pounds (cca €3,000). However, he managed 14 victories and earned €258,492. Now, Galopp Online website called him a cult horse in its headline. He had a series of victories but later, he experienced health issues – returning to the racecourses in 2010.
