Winbak Farm of Ontario is pleased to announce that Stag Party will be standing his first year at the farm in 2020. The farm has also announced the addition of the trotting stallion The Bank to its roster.
“Stag Party is a familiar name in Ontario that has the pedigree and record to make him a strong contender in the Ontario breeding program,” said Pat Woods, WInbak Farm of Ontario Manager.
Stag Party, p, 2, 1:50.4s -'18 ($952,395), was the 2018 O’Brien award winner for 2-year-old pacing colts.
“Stag Party is a gorgeous Bettor’s Delight colt that has very good size,” said Casie Coleman, who trained Stag Party. “He sold for $125,000 as a yearling at Harrisburg and he was the third highest Bettor’s Delight colt sold in 2017.”
Stag Party’s second dam is Economic Clout, p, 3, T1:51.1 ($369,247). Stag Party’s dam is a full-sister to Twist N Clout, p, 2, 1:53.2 ($564,484).
“This colt is very, very well bred,” said Coleman. “He is smart with the perfect gait.”
At 2, Stag Party won the Metro Pace elimination and final. He won the elimination in 1:51 and the Final in his lifetime best of 1:50.4.
“Stag Party going first-over in the Metro Pace and then winning by pulling away by 4 lengths was unheard of,” said Coleman.
He also won a Nassagaweya Stakes division and two Ontario Sire Stakes Gold legs.
“He was great on any size track,” said Coleman. “His 1:52.3 mile to win the Ontario Sire Stakes Gold leg at Grand River at two was unheard of.”
Stag Party competed and won against the best of his crop including Bettor’s Wish, Semi Tough and Shake That House.
“He came to his speed very early at two,” said driver David Miller. “He was a very fast and handy horse.”
Stag Party will stand for $4,000 CAD or $3,000 US. Please call Pat Woods at 905.838.2145 or email him at email@example.com for booking information.
“Stag Party had the speed needed to make money,” said Woods “As a Bettor’s Delight, his offspring should perform well, I am confident they will be tough racehorses.”
As for The Bank, he moves to Winbak of Ontario from Sweden.
“Winbak Farm is proud to have The Bank join our 2020 Ontario stallion lineup,” said Pat Woods, Winbak of Ontario Manager. “We believe he could be a major trotting force in North America.”
The Bank, 2, 1:53.4; 3, 1:50.4 ($1,214,895), was a stakes winner at 2 and 3. He is the son of millionaires Donato Hanover and Lantern Kronos. Lantern Kronos was the USHWA Dan Patch and O’Brien award winner for 3-Year-Old Trotting Filly of 2008.
At 2, he won the Bluegrass Stakes and Pennsylvania All Stars. He was second in a Breeders Crown elimination and Kindergarten Series leg.
At 3, The Bank won the Breeders Crown final, American National Stakes, Stanley Dancer Trot and Pennsylvania Sire Stakes leg and Final. He was second in the Colonial Trot Final, Goodtimes Trot elimination and Final, Bluegrass Stakes, Hambletonian elimination and Canadian Trotting Classic elimination.
The Bank previously stood at stud in Sweden. His oldest crop is now two. There were 88 in his first crop.
“The Bank will provide a good outcross for most trotting mares,” said Woods.
The Bank will be standing at Winbak Farm of Ontario for $5,000 CAD. There will be limited syndicate shares available. (Winbak Farm)
