On Friday, November 22, Brittany Stallion Management announced that world champion racehorse and sire Glidemaster is being relocated to Winbak Farm of Ontario.
Winbak will be assuming managerial duties for the stallion, whose stud fee will remain at $4,000. Glidemaster becomes the sixth addition to the stallion barn at Winbak of Ontario.
“We’re glad the opportunity presented itself to stand a Horse of the Year and a sire who’s already producing world-class trotters. We’re excited to have him,” said Winbak Farm Owner Joe Thomson.
Thomson added that Winbak will offer its full support of the stallion in terms of breeding mares to him and promoting him.
Glidemaster 2, 1:55.3; 3, 1:51 earned close to $2-million during his racing career. He was a world champion and Triple Crown winner who captured the Hambletonian in stakes-record time. He was an overwhelming selection as Horse of the Year in 2006.
“We feel that Ontario has a void in trotting stallions, and Glidemaster will help fill it,” said Thomson. “Winbak Farm is optimistic about the sire stakes and grassroots program in Ontario.”
Leading his progeny in 2013 earnings is world champion and two-time Breeders Crown champion, Maven, 2, 1:56f; 3, 1:52.3; 1:51.4h -’13 ($1,420,319).
