CANTAB HALL is one of the greats in world trotting siring ranks.
He offers one of the best bloodlines available in the world of trotting - coming from one of the best trotting families the world has known, going back to the legendary SCOTLAND (1925), which has descended through 10 generations to remain a significant influence in the modern day.
And now one of his sons is back on Australian shores for a second stud season Down Under.
HARAS DES TROTTEURS is offering the US-bred Swedish group 1 winner VOLSTEAD as part of our stallion roster for a second year.
Haras des Trotteurs had the privilege of launching his stud career on Australia soil last season.
Volstead left 56 mares in foal in Australia and 27 in New Zealand.
We are delighted to see his first foals – his first anywhere in the world - from that crop now on the ground.
Volstead returns as a shuttle stallion after his first stint at stud in the United States.
Being on the ground in Australia means Volstead is the only son of Cantab Hall with chilled semen available to breeders in Australia and New Zealand.
Volstead was a top class performer on the track in Europe, with a career-best 1:51.5 in a racing career of 23 wins, and having him in Victoria provides breeders with a rare opportunity to add the influence of Cantab Hall to their bloodlines.
The United States-bred Cantab Hall (1:54, $US1.44m) was a star on the track from the outset, being voted the USTA trotter of the year as a 2yo.
He was then an immediate success at stud, being the leading sire of 2yo trotters with his first crop in the US.
Cantab Hall has gone on since to at one stage being the leading money-winning trotting sire for three consecutive years (2012-13-14), and again in 2016 and 2017.
As well as producing numerous outstanding performers, the Hall of Famer has also developed into a sire of sires.
Father Patrick is his richest earning foal, having tallied up $US2.56m in stakes in an illustrious career, and is now a leading sire in the US.
SERVICE FEE: $4,500 + GST. CHILLED SEMEN. MULTIPLE MARE DISCOUNT AVAILABLE. CONDITIONS APPLY.
