FRANKFORT, Ky., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Overbrook Farms has received the largest share of bonus money in the first year of a Kentucky program to help breeders of state-bred Thoroughbreds.

The home of Storm Cat produces about 75 foals a year and collects a stud fee of $500,000 for each foal sired by Storm Cat -- a descendant of Secretariat -- the Louisville (Ky.) Courier-Journal reported Wednesday.

Overbrook Farms collected the biggest share of the $12.5 million awarded by the new Thoroughbred breeders' incentive fund, which bases the bonus payments on the number of races won by a breeder's horses in 2006.

Most of the incentive money is from the sales tax on stallion fees, the Courier-Journal said.
