Hambo Day at The Meadowlands, New Jersey on Saturday (August 2) proved a red-letter day for former USA trotting standout Muscle Hill, as the sire of the winner of both the $1,006,125 Hambletonian in Trixton and the $352,050 Merrie Annabelle for two-year-old fillies, Mission Brief.

Trixton, who stopped the teletimer in 1:50.6, clocked the second fastest time in the history of the race, behind only his own sire, Muscle Hill, the 2009 Hambo winner who still holds the track and three-year-old world record of 1:50.2.

A $360,000 yearling, Trixton is one of the first crop of Muscle Hill, the leading sire of two-year-old trotters in North America this year and third on the three-year-old list.

Trixton has earned a whopping $786,918 this year, making him easily the richest of his gait and age in 2014.

Mission Brief, the richest and fastest two-year-old trotter in North America, tied the world record of 1:52.4 in her front-stepping Merrie Annibelle triumph.

Jolene Jolene (by Muscle Hill) and Lock Down Lindy, a daughter of leading first-crop sire Lucky Chucky, filled the minor placings.

Muscle Hill is already the leading sire of money won for two-year-olds in North America at this time and he is second on the three-year-old list behind Cantab Hall. This is only Muscle Hill's second crop to the races so his future is certainly looking assured..

Muscle Hill was again fully booked this year at the prestige Southwind Farms, New Jersey.

The frozen semen of Muscle Hill and Lucky Chucky is also available in Australia and New Zealand from Stallions Australasia Pty Ltd.
