>With the Canadian Open yearling sale being our first major sale of the year, I have decided to focus on our consignment for this sale as our first review of the season. With Badlands Hanover, Angus Hall, and Royal Mattjesty all having offspring racing well in the ONSS program, I am excited to see how our 2012 yearlings will develop.


Even though there are uncertain times in Ontario, it is important to remember the value of a good horse. Our Ontario stallions have offspring who race not only well in their home province but in stakes races across the continent.


On that note, I would like to share with you the yearlings I suggest you definitely want to take a look at.
