Blue Chip Farms is pleased to announce that it will stand Here Comes Herbie at its New York farm in 2016.

With a mark of 3,1:52, Here Comes Herbie is the second fastest son of Credit Winner and a Hambletonian Elimination winner. And like his dad, he has shown himself to be a stakes caliber sire having produced such top trotters as millionaire Mister Herbie and 2015 Maple Leaf Trot Elimination winner, Natural Herbie. Twenty percent of his starters greater than two years of age have made over $100,000 and/or trotted in 1:55. Here Comes Herbie also boasts a royal pedigree. Out of D Train, he is a half- brother to $3 million earner and top Pennsylvania sire, Donato Hanover.

With such credentials, new owners Dr. Herb J. Burns and Blue Chip, chose to do a joint venture with the horse on a private treaty basis. Tom Grossman stated, "I am thrilled to have Herbie (the horse) back in the Blue Chip Family. Herbie’s (THE man) passion is matched only by my own. It goes without saying that the unique abilities of Blue Chip’s crew brings out the very best in stallions in general, and Credit Winner line stallions in particular. I think we stand a very good chance of writing a storybook ending to this special horse’s life for our team and the legion of true Herbie believers.”

Grossman continued, “This is an exceptional opportunity to leverage the substantial investment we have made in behaviorists, therapeutics, and other tools in effectively managing his father’s career with a stallion that has already proven he can produce elite horses. We look forward to the challenge of putting together, and effectively servicing, a limited boutique book of our own and selected partners mares that will represent a huge step forward in Herbie’s opportunity."

Here Come Herbie has settled in well at Blue Chip from his former home in Indiana.
