Diamond Creek announced today that 2017 U.S. Pacer of the Year Downbytheseaside, has a full and closed book for 2021. Downbytheseaside's book was inundated with applications after making a splash at the sales this fall.

Downbytheseaside's first crop of yearlings were extremely well received by the buyers this year. At the Ohio Jug Sale, his yearlings averaged more than $44,000 for 37 horses sold with three colts bringing bids of more than $100,000. He repeated that success again in Lexington, where 26 yearlings were sold for an average in excess of $61,000 -- more than 10 times his initial stud fee. Success continued at the Standardbred Horse Sale, where 10 yearling sold for an average of $47,000 with top prices of $95,000 and $97,000.

"The yearlings looked the part and I think that people in Ohio, and outside of Ohio, are looking for this kind of horse," said Diamond Creek's Adam Bowden, "The sale results show that you can't consider him simply a regional stallion."

Diamond Creek and the Downbytheseaside syndicate would like to sincerely thank all the breeders who supported and backed the stallion in his first years at stud.

Some of the breeder success stories from Downbytheseaside’s first crop include:

  • Lexington - Hip 836 Sea Lioness, filly out of Lionness Hanover, bred by Hickory Lane Farm and sold by Spring Haven for $200,000 to Greg Luther.

  • Lexington - Hip 730 Coastal Front, colt out of Shes Poison, bred and sold by Winbak Farm for $115,000 to Don Robinson, agent.

  • Lexington - Hip 721 Nola Blu, filly out of Catharsis, bred and sold by Crawford Farms for $100,000 to Greg Luther of Ohio.
