Goshen, NY -- In The Arsenal p,2,1:49.4; 3,1:49.1, the 8-year-old, million dollar winning fast son of American Ideal, will stand his second harness racing season at Leatherstocking Equine in New York. His stud fee remains at $2,500.

Returning breeders from 2019, whose mares produced a live foal in 2020 by In The Arsenal, will be eligible to book the same mare, or another mare, at a discounted rate of $2,000.

In addition, at the conclusion of the 2020 breeding season, the syndicate will hold a Facebook live drawing to pick one successful breeder where the stud fee will be free for one lucky person, drawn by lot.

In The Arsenal earned $1,035,898 racing against some of the fastest pacers on the planet, capturing 18 wins lifetime, finding victory in a nearly a third of all his starts.

Well-known for his blistering speed at two, winning a leg of the Bluegrass at the Red Mile in 1:49.4 as a freshman, he also won the Lawrence Sheppard Memorial at Yonkers. In fact, in a span of five weeks, he won both his 2-year-old stakes at Lexington, the Historic at Chester, and the Matron at Dover.

This was followed by a brutal ten-hole brush to the lead and cutting the :26.3, :54.3, 1:23 fractions in his Breeders Crown elimination, beaten just a length for third in 1:50.3. The following week, In The Arsenal finished second in the Breeders Crown Final, again from post 10, despite being interfered with in the early going.

In The Arsenal was then immersed in one of the toughest group of 3-year-old pacing colts in recent memory. Not only was he born the same year as 2015 Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit, but In The Arsenal also competed against Freaky Feet Pete, Artspeak, Dude's The Man, Lost For Words, Dealt A Winner and Wakizashi Hanover.

In The Arsenal defeated several of the aforementioned pacing colts winning his elimination of the Meadowlands Pace in 1:49.1, stepping away from the field with an incredible :25.3 last quarter.

Several weeks prior he won an elim. and Final of the Art Rooney at Yonkers, his elimination of the North America Cup at Mohawk, as well as a div. of the Bluegrass at the Red Mile in October. Despite locking bridles with some of the gamest individuals of the decade, In The Arsenal still finished the season with over half a million in earnings and was 1-2-3 in 11 of 17 starts in 2015, with 7 wins.

From the multiple stakes winning mare LADYOTRA p,2,1:53.2 ($115,627), her production and immediate family is loaded with speed and money winners.
