The ownership group of world record setter Dali p,2,1:50.2; 3,1:48.2f ($1,436,363) has announced that he will be returning to Ontario to stand stud in 2014.

Dali's oldest foals were two-year-olds in 2013, from a test crop of mares he serviced while still racing. This is the first time the gorgeous speedster will be available in Ontario for commercial breeding. Dali possesses all the attributes to produce top racehorses and attractive yearlings for the commercial market.

Dali's magnificent early speed at two, including being the fastest two-year-old first-start winner in the history of the sport, and his dominant wins in the Niatross and Woodrow Wilson stakes, says he has the right genetic tools to get his offspring to the races early.

Dali's great conformation, toughness, and soundness, were highlighted by the fact that in spite of his precocious early start, he remained competitive at the highest level of the sport late into his three-year-old campaign, including his vicious world record setting Matron win in 1:48.2f in December.

From a very small test crop, Dali proved that his pedigree and performance would convert into him being a high percentage sire of offspring that can make it to the races and compete in the Ontario Sires Stakes Gold program. Thirteen of 14 of his offspring raced this year at two (the only one that did not was untrained), and included the brilliantly quick Witch Dali p,2,1:52.3s as well as competitive Gold performers Blacktree and Weatherly (both race timed in 1:52).

Dali returns to Ontario to stand at the very economical rate of $2,000 to give breeders the opportunity to get commercially attractive foals while keeping their costs in line given the state of our industry.

All collection will be done at Emerald Ridge Farm in Rockwood, Ontario and 10 per cent of all proceeds from stud fees collected will be donated to the Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society (OSAS).
