Goshen, NY -- Hambletonian elimination winner Enterprise 2,1:58.1f; 3,1:52 ($423,121) will stand his inaugural season in Ohio at Dublin Valley Farms for a stud fee of $4,500.

Measuring just under 16 hands, the impressive son of Chapter Seven is from the 100% producing dam Shes Gone Again whose first three foals all trotted in 1:52.4 or faster, including the filly Live Laugh Love that was third in the historic World Record 1:49.4 mile in the 2018 Delvin Miller Mem. at the Meadowlands, race timed in 1:50.2.

His dam is a half sister to Breeders Crown winner Poof She's Gone 3,1:53.1 ($1,312,093). She is also a 100% producing mare and her Muscle Hill yearling colt sold for $410,000 in Lexington this year.

Enterprise [sold as Brand New Rap] brought $100,000 on opening night at the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale in 2015. His Muscle Hill half sister sold for $275,000 this year during the prestigious opening session at the famed Kentucky auction.

He won his only start at two, and was an early national season's leader at three.

Enterprise was trained by Marcus Melander and won half of his 12 starts in 2017, including an elimination of the Hambletonian S. at the Meadowlands, as well as a leg of the New York Sire Stakes at Vernon, and an elimination of the Good Times at Mohawk.

Enterprise finished fourth, placed third in the $1,000,000 final of the Hambletonian, and has won on all sized tracks, including a 1:55.4h victory against older horses at Yonkers.

During the colt's three-year-old season, U.S. trainer Marcus Melander noted, "[Enterprise] moves so easy, even though he's a pretty big horse. He's got speed, but he never gets tired. He's a very strong horse."

While racing in Europe at four, Enterprise was 1-2-3 in 7 of 17 starts, including a third place finish to Hambletonian winner Perfect Spirit in the prestigious Kings Trophy at Aby, which was a track record performance (1:54.2f mile rate) over the 1 5/16th mile distance.

Robert Hershberger, owner of Dublin Valley Farms, is pleased to bring Enterprise to Ohio, and stated, "Enterprise is a magnificent individual, whose conformation, pedigree and racing credentials make him an excellent choice for Ohio breeders looking for a direct connection to the red hot Chapter Seven. We are confident that he will be well-received by the astute Buckeye breeders."
