Adams Hall, a brother to multiple stakes winner Andover Hall, Conway Hall, Angus Hall and Emilie Cas El, has been sold to Swedish interests.

The 3-Year-Old trotter, who broke his maiden at the Meadowlands on July 7, was purchased by Kari-Erik Bender, owner of the 2004 Elitlop winner Gidde Palema.

"I got an offer I couldn’t refuse," said co-owner Eric Cherry. The sale was finalised over the weekend for a reported $650,000.

"It was actually a little more, but that is the range," Cherry said, who could not disclose the exact purchase price.

Adams Hall, by Garland Lobell-Amour Angus, had eight starts this year for owners Ron Bash of Pomano Beach, Mentally Stable of Gainesville, Let It Ride Stable and Wingedfoot Farms of Delray Beach, Florida.

The Ross Croghan trainee was lightly raced at 2-Years-Old and has been on the board in five of his eight starts this year. A $250,000 yearling purchase at the 2002 Tattersalls Yearling Sale, Adams Hall has a mark of 1.55.1 and over $50,000 in career earnings.

"We believe he’s going to be a very serious 4-Year-Old, but he was a little growthy and slow in developing," Cherry said. "It just really makes sense for the European community because they aren’t going to get the other three brothers."

Cherry said Adams Hall is expected to race again at four.
