* TERMS AND CONDITIONS: Abby Stables must approve all contracts. This contract is valid only to mare listed and owner/agent/lessee named. All mares must be USTA registered. If the stallion becomes unserviceable, this contract is void. Neither Abby Stables nor the Stallion Syndicate, the stallion owner, their agents or employees, shall be liable for injury, disability or death suffered by this mare or its foal, from any cause. Abby Stables is authorized, at the expense of owner/lessee, without liability, to engage vet services, trim feet, worm, vaccinate, administer feed supplements, conduct veterinary examinations or do any other work on mare or foal deemed by Abby Stables to contribute to their general health; including the right to transport, in veterinary emergencies, to an appropriate veterinary treatment center. The service fee is due and payable when either the mare has a live foal or ownership changes. A live foal is one that is able to stand up and nurse. If the mare fails to produce a live foal, a service fee paid in advance will be refunded upon receipt of a certificate from a vet stating specifically that the mare has been pronounced barren, has slipped her foal, or has given birth to a dead foal; or the foal is unable to stand and nurse. The veterinary certificate must be presented no later than 30 days after discovery that there will be no live foal. In the event the mare is sold prior to foaling, the service fee, if unpaid, shall immediately become due and payable. There will be a 1.5% interest charge on all charges 30 days past due that relate to breeding/boarding/foaling/care of this mare and her foal, if applicable. Mating certificates will be mailed when all charges, including service fee, are paid in full.

At 2, Western Vintage was a force to be reckoned with achieving his mark of 1:49.4 in the Bluegrass Stakes at The Red Mile in Lexington, beating the field of top level colts by several lengths.  Owner, Perry Soderberg, said, "Western Vintage is one of the fastest horses that I have ever picked out as a yearling.  I have evaluated over 40,000 yearlings, and selected many top horses for Jimmy Takter and others.  Western Vintage is one of my all-time favorites and probably the one horse in his crop with the highest ability, in my opinion.  As he is a standout individual with a great gait, raw speed and an awesome attitude, I will breed to him and I am excited to buy his yearlings!"

Western Vintage swept the NJSS, winning the first two legs and then the Final to become the NJ State Champion for 2-year-old colt pacers.  He won the Metro Elim., finishing second in the final.  He comes from a long line of Champions including Adios winner, Vintage Master, Great Vintage and Silk Stockings.  Nancy Johansson trained Western Vintage throughout his racing career, she states, "Western Vintage is a charismatic and a naturally great gaited individual.  His quick turn of speed, good confirmation, determination and athleticism make him an obvious choice as a sire."  Driver Yannick Gingras concurs, "Western Vintage is a great gaited horse with very good manners and an incredible turn of speed."

Sire of Western Vintage, Western Ideal, continues to be very current through his progeny such as, son Artspeak, 3, 1:47.4m.  Communicators Hall of Fame Inductee, Dean Hoffman, said "Western Vintage was a brilliant 2-year-old. When a colt wins his first two career starts in 1:52.4 and 1:52.1, you know he's something special. He won at the Meadowlands, Mohawk, and The Red Mile. To me he was the best 2-year-old pacer of 2013 and I voted for him as the champion. He has a very contemporary pedigree with a deep maternal family. With his early speed, I don't see how he can fail to sire stakes winners."

From small crops, WESTERN VINTAGE has had Ohio Sires Stakes winners, Ohio Sires Stakes Finalists, Breeders Championship competitors and even stars at the fairs since his breakout year for 2-year-olds in 2018.  Some of his standouts include BOMBAY HANOVER, p,2, 1:51.3M ($92,149), ROSE RUN ULYSSES, p,4, 1:51.3f, ($200,602), AUTHENTIC HANOVER, p,3, 1:53.1f, ($104,296), OHIO VINTAGE, p,3, 1:52.4h ($95,858), THREEHUNDRED WIRTH, P,3, 1:51.0s.  In 2020, WESTERN VINTAGE, once again, had competitors in all realms of the Ohio program, including ELLAGATOR, p,3, 1:53.0f ($169,512), coming back to compete in the Ohio Sires Stakes Finals for 3fp, FOUR-STAR FLASH, p,2, 1:51.3h ($44,510), who also made the OSS Finals for 2cp, EPIC ACE, p,3, 1:51.4f ($82,846), who was a multiple stakes winner in the Buckeye Stallion Series for 3cp, and FREE THINKER, p,2, 1:54.0f ($64,025), who was a finalist in the Buckeye Stallion Series for 2fp.

WESTERN VINTAGE has the fastest 2-year-old mark, p,2,1:49.4, of any stallion standing in Ohio.  Take advantage of breeding your mare to this high speed, talented stallion.  Book early! This year, the owners of WESTERN VINTAGE are offering a COVID-19 special on his stud fee.  Book your mare and enjoy a $2,000 stud fee for 2021 bookings.
