Delmarvalous, p, 3, 1:48.2 ($889,123) will stand at Delaware Valley College for the 2012 harness racing breeding season. The son of Badlands Hanover and the Scoot Herb mare Prymetyme Scootie won 14 of 43 career starts - including the Oliver Wendell Holmes at age three.

Delmarvalous was selected to stand in Pennsylvania -- for a fee of $4,000 -- to take advantage of that state's rich state-bred racing programs, according to managing partner John Celii.

In addition, Moon Beam, p, 3, 1:51F ($772,486) will also stand for the 2012 breeding season at Delaware Valley College.

The son of Dragon Again--Sun N Moon won four of six starts at two, earning $407,650, with a mark of 1:52.2S. He won a Metro Pace Elimination and the placed second in the Metro Final, raced for a C$1 million purse. At three, Moon Beam won $284,796, with major wins in the Battle of the Brandywine Consolation, The Adios Consolatioin and a third in the Cane Pace, ending the season with a lifetime mark of 1:51F.

"We were looking to add an outstanding Dragon Again line stallion to our roster, and trainer Nick Surick had just the right horse in mind for our program", Marta Piotrow, assistant Standardbred manager at Delaware Valley College, said.

Moon Beam will stand the 2012 season for a $3,000 fee.
