>When it comes to Vintage Master’s first crop, the “ayes” have it! It’s thumbs up across the board from the trainers we’ve talked to about his 2-year-olds in training. And if their outstanding early promise transforms as expected into early speed, Vintage Master is a sire you’ll soon be hearing from in Ontario Sire Stakes action.

Here is what a few trainers had to say… 

Tony Alagna, on his filly Thatsoveryverynice:

“I have a Vintage Master filly that’s very special. She’s maternally inbred to Maryellen Hanover, the same type of cross that produced American Jewel and He’s Watching. Right now, I wouldn’t change a thing!” 

Jeff Fout, on his colt My Old Master and filly Kimberly’s Baby:

“Both broke smartly and hit their gaits on their own, very naturally. They’re big, robust horses that really like their work. They aim to please you and, best of all, both have plenty of gas pedal!” 

Scott McNiven, on his filly Alphabet Queen:

“She’s done everything we’ve asked of her, and done it easily. She’s good-gaited, has a great attitude…very willing. She’s moving forward nicely."

Vintage Master had world record speed, racing ability that enabled him to beat the best in the big stakes, and—thrown in for good measure—a Hall of Fame pedigree with “future sire” written all over it. (See pedigree)

All that gives him every right to become an outstanding pacing sire, and by this summer, our hope is to see that proven out.

Vintage Master stands for a fee of $3,500 (Cdn.) at Winbak of Ontario. For breeders considering the Ontario program, he offers tremendous promise for a very reasonable amount of money. Click here to see his stallion page.
