Racing Hill Retired, To Stud

Published: December 1, 2016 01:22 pm EST

This year's Breeders Crown winner Racing Hill (Roll With Joe - Chasing Ideals) p,2,1:51.2; 3,1:48 ($1,727,692) has been retired and will stand as a stallion next year.

Owner Tom Hill and Hickory Lane Farm are pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement to syndicate and stand Racing Hill at Ohio's Hickory Lane Farm beginning in 2017.

Racing Hill retires to stud with the credentials of a true champion. At two, while establishing his 1:51.2 mark on a sloppy track, Racing Hill won such prestigious races as the Bluegrass Stakes, International Stallion Stakes and an elimination of the Breeders Crown.

This year at three, Racing Hill is currently the third leading money winner of all pacers ($1,646,276). He also recorded the fastest winning time in Breeders Crown history (1:48) for three-year-old colt pacers at the Meadowlands, surpassing the great Somebeachsomewhere's mark of 1:48.3.

In addition, Racing Hill has won several of the prestigious three-year-old stakes races. Besides winning the Breeders Crown, Racing Hill recorded victories in the $500,000 Max Hempt final at Pocono, the $500,000 Messenger Stakes at Yonkers, and the $400,000 Adios at The Meadows. He was a fast-closing second in a photo finish for win in the Meadowlands Pace and was a strong second in the North America Cup.
