“Winbak Farm is proud to have The Bank join our 2020 Ontario stallion lineup,” said Pat Woods, Winbak of Ontario Manager. “We believe he could be a major trotting force in North America.”
The Bank, 2, 1:53.4; 3, 1:50.4 ($1,214,895), was a stakes winner at 2 and 3. He is the son of Millionaires, Donato Hanover and Lantern Kronos. Lantern Kronos was the USHWA Dan Patch and O’Brien Award Winner for Three-Year-Old Trotting Filly of 2008.
At 2, he won the Bluegrass Stakes and Pennsylvania All Stars. He was second in a Breeders Crown elimination and Kindergarten Series leg.
At 3, The Bank won the Breeders Crown Final, American National Stakes, Stanley Dancer Trot and Pennsylvania Sire Stakes leg and Final. He was second in the Colonial Trot Final, Goodtimes Trot elimination and Final, Bluegrass Stakes, Hambletonian Stakes elimination and Canadian Trotting Classic elimination.
