Credit Winner, one of harness racing's leading trotting sires, is at home at Blue Chip Farms in New York after spending time at the University of Pennsylvania's famed New Bolton Center to evaluate problems he was having breeding.
In a press release issued Thursday, April 7, Blue Chip said Credit Winner was taken to New Bolton on Feb. 20 for a "comprehensive reproductive evaluation after he was unable to be collected at the start of the 2010 breeding season." A treatment program was initiated and Credit Winner returned to Blue Chip on March 26.
During the time he was at New Bolton, Credit Winner's book was reduced and mare nominations were made exclusively available to syndicate shareholders via the use of semen frozen last fall.
"Credit Winner was returned to the farm in excellent physical condition," said Blue Chip Farms president Mike Kimelman. "If he continues to respond positively to the management protocol recommended by New Bolton, we are hopeful that his 2010 book may be expanded in the coming weeks."
