« Return to News
Owners Perry Soderberg and Marvin Katz, are proud to announce that Western Vintage, by Western Ideal, out of the Art Major mare, Major Harmony, will be standing the 2015 breeding season at Abby Stables in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
At 2, Western Vintage was a force to be reckoned with achieving his mark of 1:49.4 in the Bluegrass Stakes at The Red Mile in Lexington, beating the field of top level colts by several lengths. His owner, Perry Soderberg, said, "Western Vintage is one of the fastest horses that I have ever picked out as a yearling. I have evaluated over 35,000 yearlings, selected many top horses for Jimmy Takter and others. Western Vintage is one of my all-time favorites and probably the one horse in his crop with the highest ability, in my opinion. As he is a standout individual with a great gait, raw speed and an awesome attitude, I will breed to him and I am excited to buy his yearlings!”
Western Vintage swept the NJSS, winning the first two legs and then the Final to become the NJ State Champion for 2-year-old colt pacers. He won the Metro Elim., finishing second in the final. He comes from a long line of Champions including Adios winner, Vintage Master, Great Vintage and Silk Stockings.
Nancy Johansson trained Western Vintage throughout his racing career, she states, "Western Vintage is a charismatic and a naturally great gaited individual. His quick turn of speed, good confirmation, determination and athleticism make him an obvious choice as a sire.” Driver Yannick Gingras concurs, "Western Vintage is a great gaited horse with very good manners and an incredible turn of speed.”
Sire of Western Vintage, Western Ideal, shows again this year that he is very current through his son Artspeak, 2, 1:50.2.
