The owners of Up The Credit p, 2, 1:51.4s; 3, 1:49 ’11 ($1,161,643), have decided and are pleased to announce that, as well as standing stud at Seelster Farms, Up The Credit will continue to be trained and the plan is to race him as a four-year-old.

Winner of the $1.5-million Pepsi North America Cup, Up The Credit’s other sophomore victories include the $117,644 Simcoe Stakes, $100,000 Somebeachsomewhere Stakes, $100,000 Meadowlands Pace consolation, $80,000 Diplomat Stakes final and an elimination of the North America Cup.

From just five starts at age two, Up The Credit paced to a record of 1:51.4 in just his second lifetime start, winning the first leg of the Dream Maker Stakes. He also recorded a win in the New York Sire Stakes at Buffalo Raceway.

A son of leading pacing sire Western Terror and the prolific Pacific Rocket mare Cantbuymehappiness, the half sister to O’Brien Award winner Precious Delight p, 2, 1:53.3f; 3, 1:51.1 ($1,352,372), Up The Credit possesses one of the most desirable pedigrees in the sport today. His second dam is the half sister to the great Staying Together p, 3, 1:52.4f; 4, 1:48.2 ($1,692,832).

Up The Credit will be conditioned by St. Mary’s, Ont. trainer Mark Horner and will be available for inspection by appointment at Horner Stables during the season. Up The Credit will maintain the customary collection schedule, as all the Seelster Stallions, beginning on February 13, 2012.

Up The Credit stands for an introductory fee of $5,000. Multiple mare and loyalty discounts may apply. For further information, please contact Ann Straatman of Seelster Farms at 519-227-4294.

scott martin SAID...

before he died, Hickstead managed a very sucessful campagne while also serving in the breeding shed, good to see some one else giving it a shot.

Lynne Magee SAID...

Now this is thinking "outside of the box"! Stallions in other disciplines breed and continue to compete and can often do so successfully when properly managed. Good luck to Up The Credit with both of his roles in the upcoming year.

Peter Smith SAID...

I honestly feel this is going to prove one of the most important, refreshing and gutsy decisions taken by a trainer/owner/breeding farm in the recent history of harness racing... I hope more follow suit.
