While many of the sport’s greatest stars are lured to the breeding shed at the end of their sophomore campaigns, the connections of the richest pacing filly of all-time fully intend on bringing her back to the track for another tour of duty.

Put On A Show, who captivated the audience at Pocono Downs on Saturday evening with a stunning 1:50.1 triumph in the $500,000 Breeders Crown Three-Year-Old Filly Pace, has a few more engagements left on her dance card this year before being treated to a well-deserved rest.

“She has two starts left – one in Kentucky and one in Chicago – and then she’ll head to Lexington for six weeks off before she gets put back in training,” co-owner Richard Young told Trot Insider. “She’ll be pointed towards an April return.”

The Montreal, QC native, who now resides in Coconut Creek Florida, is looking forward to another campaign with the multi-talented daughter of Rocknroll Hanover-Stienams Place. And there’s a distinct possibility she’ll back for the following season, as well.

“I would like to race her to the end of her five-year-old season if she stays healthy,” added Young, who co-owns the career winner of $1,876,291 with his wife, Joanne, and partner Craig Henderson of Chicago, IL. “She has the Glen Garnsey on October 22 in Lexington and then the American-National on November 13. If she were to win both and the purses are as advertised, she could get to $2 million.”

Even though her breeding career is quite a way down the road, Young has put plenty of thought into the perfect partner for the filly, who has captured 19 of her 23 lifetime starts.

“If conditions remain as they are currently I will breed to a Canadian sire,” admitted Young. “I’d like to see how Jeremes Jet performs as sire for next two years. Put On A Show bred to a Canadian sire is a big deal; maybe others might follow, Ontario deserves better sires.”

When asked about what he plans on doing with his share of the Breeders Crown loot, Young admitted he’s got a shopping trip planned.

“I have my eye on three yearlings in Lexington and four in Harrisburg,” he added. “I expect I will buy three; that’s my usual.”
