Seelster Farms is excited to welcome World Champion Big Jim p, 2, 1:49.1s ($1,544,580) to its Lucan, Ontario farm for stud duty beginning with the 2012 breeding season.

Winner of the 2010 O’Brien Award and the USHWA Dan Patch Award for Two-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year, Big Jim dominated his competition in his freshman season.

His stakes victories last year include his World Record performance of 1:49.1 in the $709,000 Governors Cup; his 1:50.4 track record in the $600,000 Breeders Crown, just one-fifth of a second off the World Record for a five-eighths mile track; a stakes record of 1:51.1 in the final of the Dream Maker Stakes; a stakes record of 1:50.2 in his Metro stakes elimination, and divisions of the Champlain Stakes and Nassagaweya Stakes.

At the conclusion of his two-year-old season, Big Jim had compiled a record of six wins, all paced in 1:51.1 or faster, one second and two thirds in just 10 starts, with seasonal earnings of $834,080.

At three, Big Jim captured the $400,000 New Jersey Classic, an elimination of the Meadowlands Pace and a division of the New Jersey Sires Stakes. He finished an impressive second by a neck in the $1 million Meadowlands Pace and a fast-closing third in the $1.5 million Pepsi North American Cup.

Retiring with earnings of $1,544,580, Big Jim compiled a record of 10 wins, 3 seconds and 4 thirds in 20 lifetime starts.

A son of the great Western Ideal and the multiple stakes winning Big Towner mare Bold Pink p, 1:51.3 ($216,852), Big Jim is owned by Jim Carr, was trained throughout his career by James 'Friday' Dean and was driven by Phil Hudon.

Big Jim will stand for an introductory fee of $5,000. A sensational deal on a limited number of syndication shares is available. For further information, contact Ann Straatman at Seelster Farms at 519-227-4294.
