Jim Simpson, the President of Hanover Shoe Farms and the syndicate manager of the stallion Somebeachsomewhere, announced on Thursday (Nov. 15) that the horse will stand the 2013 season at a stud fee of $20,000. His 2012 fee was $15,000.
The Beach's first crop are now two year olds and in it he has done what no other sire in the history of harness racing has accomplished. His 2 year olds have already earned an all-time record of $4,642,586. He is the sire of 31 1:55 or faster 2 year olds. He has also demonstrated the ability to sire great fillies as well as colts. His fillies have thus far earned an astonishing $2,603,799. His 2 year olds were headed by the magnificent colt Captaintreacherous p.2,1.49.2($918,253), the Breeders Crown winning filly Somwherovrarainbow p.2,1.51.2(446,831) and numerous other prominent 2 year olds.
Somebeachsomewhere will be greatly in demand and Hanover Shoe Farms will try to accommodate as many of its customers as possible, but warns that preference will be given to current syndicate members and to those who have previously supported the horse. (Hanover Shoe Farms)
