Hambletonian winner Amigo Hall has been retired and will stand stud in 2005 at Tara Hills Stud in Ontario. The 4-year-old son of Balanced Image, who captured the 2003 Hambo as the longest price in the trotting classic's history at odds of 27-1, retires with nine wins in 25 career starts, a career best of 1:54 and $928,183 in purse earnings.

Amigo Hall was bred by Walnut Hall Ltd., which shared ownership in the horse with Robert Burgess and Karin-Olsson Burgess, the father and wife of trainer Blair Burgess, respectively. Walnut Hall Ltd. has sold its interest in Amigo Hall to the Burgesses.

Amigo Hall was the runner-up in year-end Dan Patch Award voting in the United States behind Mr. Muscleman but was voted the O'Brien Award as the best of his division in Canada. His dam is Ali's Cat, who was voted the top trotting broodmare in the U.S. in 2003.
