Seelster Farms is very pleased to announce the addition of the very talented trotter Prestidigitator to its stallion ranks.
One of the most impressive Ontario-sired trotters in recent years, Prestidigitator won $870,000 during his two year racing career and earned a record of 1:52.2s.
As a two-year-old he earned in excess of $320,000. He was victorious in Ontario Sires Stakes Gold events and concluded his debut season with an eight length romp in the OSS Super Final. He also competed against Grand Circuit colts in the William Wellwood Memorial (second in elim, fourth in final), Champlain (second) and Breeders Crown (third in elim, fourth in final).
As a sophomore, the son of Kadabra won well over half a million. He was dominant in his OSS division, winning Gold events and once again taking the Super final at the end of his season. He again held his own against the elite of his division, as he finished third in his Hambletonian elimination, third and fifth in Canadian Trotting Classic elimination and final respectively and
second and fourth in Breeders Crown elimination and final.
A $120,000 yearling at Harrisburg, Prestidigitator’s dam is the Catch A Thrill daughter Shesa Priority who won more than $272,000 during her racing career. She is a 100 per cent producer with her 2015 two-year-old Levitator, a full brother to Prestidigitator, winning an OSS Gold at Flamboro on September 27.
Prestidigitator’s first season at stud will be 2016 and his fee will be $3,500. For further information, please see seelsterfarms.com or call (519) 227-4294.
