A Scandinavian quartet has teamed up and purchased the trotting stallion Broadway Hall. Hans Nelén (Global Farm), John Bootsman (Boko Stables), Mats Gabrielsson (Oxalis) and the couple Siv and Nils Otto Bergslien (the breeders of ”Thai” horses) are the quartet behind the deal. Broadway Hall has been standing at stud at Fashion Farm.
The new owners plan to keep Broadway Hall in Pennsylvania during the 2015 breeding season. In the fall, his semen will be collected and frozen for shipping to the European market.
As a 2 year old Broadway Hall was undefeated in nine starts and won the Breeders Crown and was voted the Dan Patch 2-Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year.
As a sire his offspring include the world champion filly Cooler Schooner 2, 1:51.3, which is still the fastest time for a 2 year old regardless of track size. He is also the sire of Hambletonian winner Broad Bahn and the million-dollar winning mare Action-Broadway. He has also enjoyed success with his offspring in Europe.
In Sweden, he has 50 registered offspring where the mare Mermaid Ås (E3-winner and second in Grand Prix de l'UET) is the richest with nearly four million Swedish kroner in her bankroll. In Norway, he has sired Thai Broadway (second in Grand Prix de l'UET and Breeders Crown), who has earned almost 3.5 million NOK.(Global Farm)
