Jim Simpson, the president of Hanover Shoe Farms, has announced that 2010 Hambletonian Winner Muscle Massive 2,1.57, 3,1.51($1,245,297) will enter the stallion ranks at Hanover beginning with the 2011 breeding season.

The colt will be syndicated with Hanover purchasing an interest. His initial stud fee will be $10,000.

"Muscle Massive is a welcome addition to our stallion barn," said Simpson. "We have been looking for a quality son of Muscles Yankee for quite some time. Muscles Massive epitomizes the word quality. In addition to being a wonderful racehorse, Muscles Massive has all the qualities in abundance that you look for in a prospective stallion. He carries a pedigree second to none. He is a grand individual, possesses a flawless gait and was possessed with extraordinary high speed."

In addition to being by leading trotting sire Muscles Yankee, Muscle Massive is out of the extraordinary stakes winning and stakes producing Pine Chip broodmare Graceful Touch, she in turn being one of only two foals out out of the incredibly fast Valley Victory mare Act of Grace. The other was her full brother the Stakes Winner Cobol. It is an immediate family replete with Stakes Winners, both colts and fillies of the highest quality. Muscle Massive is a full brother to the multiple Stakes Winner Muscle Mass and a half brother to this year's Merrie Annabelle winner Thatsnotmyname .

Muscle Massive began his racing life as the highest priced yearling in the 2008 class bringing $425,000. He was purchased by and trained throughout his career by Jimmy Takter for a select group of his most prominent owners including Takter's wife, Christina. He will arrive at Hanover shortly after next week's Harrisburg sale to prepare for his new vocation.
