The Breeders Committee of the Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey has selected White Birch Farm of Allentown, NJ as the 2011 New Jersey Breeder of the Year.

White Birch Farm will be honoured at the 55th annual New Jersey Breeders Awards Luncheon at 1:00 p.m. on January 15, 2011 at Charley’s Other Brother in Eastampton Township, NJ.

White Birch-bred I Fought Dalaw, a son of Western Ideal out of In For Life, who has ranked among the top two-year-old pacers of 2011. He won his first four lifetime starts, has finished in-the-money in six of 10 outings and banked $211,741. He posted his mark of 1:50.4 in capturing the $175,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes final on July 16 at the Meadowlands.

White Birch’s owner and general manager, Michael A. Parisi, co-owns the Sam DePinto-trainee with Shannon DePinto and Jerry and Theresa Silva.

Two other freshman pacing colts who were bred at White Birch Farm have also acquitted themselves well in 2011 – Major Bombay, out of Armbro Bombay, and Ideal Champ, out of Female Champs.

Major Bombay has finished first or second in six of seven starts, earning $209,916 thanks in large part to his victory in the Woodrow Wilson Pace on August 20 at the Meadowlands. Ideal Champ won a division of the Arden at the Meadows, finishing on-the-board in four of 11 efforts.

The 800-acre White Birch Farm, a breeding farm and training centre, was founded by Michael Parisi’s parents; Joseph Parisi, who passed away in 2008, and his wife, Marie Parisi, who predeceased him.

This is the second time White Birch has been selected New Jersey Breeder of the Year, having won the honour in 2004.
