Published: October 12, 2021 10:39 am EDT

Winbak Farm of Canada announced on Tuesday that Betting Line, p, 2, 1:51.4s; 3, 1:47.2f ($2,238,518), will be joining the 2022 stallion lineup.

“Betting Line is an accomplished son of Bettors Delight who is already a proven sire of stakes winners from just two crops of racing age,” said Pat Woods, Winbak Farm of Canada Manager. “We are excited to have the opportunity to stand this World Champion at our farm.”

Betting Line was the 2016 O’Brien Horse of the Year Award winner and 2016 O’Brien and USHWA Three-Year-Old Colt Pacer of the Year Awards winner.

“We feel that the move to Ontario will be advantageous to all involved,” said Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky, Executive Vice President of Hanover Shoe Farms. “As a winner of the North America Cup, Canadian breeders are very aware of the excellence of Betting Line as a racehorse and this gives breeders access to the next generation of Bettors Delight at a very reasonable service fee.”

Betting Line won 20 races. His accomplishments at two included winning the Champlain Stakes, Metro Pace elimination, two Ontario Sires Stakes Gold legs and Super Final. At three, he won the Battle Of The Brandywine final, Carl Milstein Memorial Invitational, Little Brown Jug elimination and final, North America Cup elimination and final, four Ontario Sires Stakes Gold legs and Ontario Sires Stakes Super Final, Simcoe Stakes division and Somebeachsomewhere Stakes division.

“Betting Line was an outstanding racehorse,” said Casie Coleman, Betting Line’s trainer. “Every time he went behind the gate, he gave it his all and I look forward to having Ontario-sired offspring sired by him with that same desire.”

Betting Line’s dam, Heathers Western, p, 2, 1:54.3f; 3, 1:53f ($173,102), has produced six who have made $100,000 or more, that in addition to Betting Line are highlighted by Full Picture, p, 2, 1:55.3f; 3, 1:51.1; 1:51f ($582,000), and Shoot First, p, 2, 1:56.4h; 3, 1:53.3f; 1:52.4f ($304,720).

“Betting Line has proven he can sire horses of the highest quality as evidenced by Abuckabett Hanover,” said Jablonsky. “Hanover will keep shares in Betting Line and will be breeding mares to him in the future.”

From his first crop, Betting Line is already the sire of $500,000 Tattersalls Pace Winner Abuckabett Hanover, p, 2, 1:50.3s; 3, 1:49.1s -'21 ($703,072), Paulas Bet Hanover, p, 2, 1:55.1s; 3, 1:52.3f -'21 ($193,669), 2021 Pennsylvania Stallion Series winner Darby Hanover, p, 2, 1:52.4f; 3, 1:51.3f -'21 ($192,137), and 2021 Kentucky Commonwealth Series winner Caviart Lotus, p, 2, Q1:53.1; 3, 1:49.4 -'21 ($155,751).

“Winbak Farm plans on booking some of our best mares to him in 2022,” said Pat Woods. “We have had great success in the Ontario program and are looking to grow upon this success with Betting Line.”

Betting Line’s two-year-olds are highlighted by 2021 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes winner Jazzed, p, 2, 1:53f -'21 ($85,330), 2021 Kindergarten division winner Hood Party, p, 2, 1:52.2 -'21 ($75,744), and 2021 Pennsylvania Sires Stakes winner Night Hawk, p, 2, 1:52f -'21 ($54,219).

“I believe Winbak Farm of Canada will be a great place to stand Betting Line since he was very accomplished in Ontario,” said Coleman. “I am excited that Betting Line will join the same roster as three others that I trained, Betterthancheddar, McWicked and Stag Party.”

Betting Line will stand at Winbak Farm of Canada for $5,000 Canadian.
