Lather Up’s ownership group announced on Friday the decision to stand their two-time world champion in Ohio instead of New York.

It was previously announced that Lather Up would stand stud duty at Diamond Creek Farm’s new facility in Davenport, New York in 2020.

“When we saw the overwhelming reception on the part of Ohio breeders coupled with that of top breeders from other states who appreciate the convenience of shipped semen, Adam [Bowden of Diamond Creek Farm] and I thought it best to stand the horse in Ohio," said Taylor Made Stallions’ Duncan Taylor. "He will be standing at Sugar Valley Farm as a Diamond Creek/Taylor Made stallion."

“We could not be more excited about the addition of Lather Up, the co-fastest horse on the planet, to our stellar roster. With Ohio re-establishing itself as a top state in the industry with a top notch stakes program and opportunities galore, it became more apparent to us at Sugar Valley to continue the full court press to bring Lather Up back to Ohio," commented Sugar Valley's Joe McLead. "Our industry has the appeal of the most prolific Thoroughbred operation, in Duncan Taylor and Taylor Made Farm, wanting to be a part of Ohio's program. It is quite humbling to be working alongside of them, standing the fastest pacer in Lather Up and a champion trotter in What The Hill. Working with Adam Bowden and Diamond Creek Farm while standing Downbytheseaside has been tremendous."

Lather Up was described by the Daily Racing Form as “the fastest horse in harness racing history” when he equalled Always B Miki’s world record time for the mile in 1:46 flat. He is also a two-time world champion who set seven track records from ages two to four. Lather Up established a new track record in one of every five starts, an achievement that will likely define him as one of the most accomplished Standardbreds of all time.

All inquiries regarding season or share purchases should be directed to Diamond Creek Farm.
