It is with great sadness that Kentuckiana Farms announces the passing of one of harness racings greatest Jate Lobell.
 
The 31-year-old stallion stood at Kentuckiana Farms for 22 years before being retired from active duty in 2009.
 
Jate Lobell (No Nukes – J.R. Amy, p, 3, 1:51.2M, $2,231,402) impacted the Standardbred breed like few other. At 2, a World Champion, the son of No Nukes 
was voted 2-year-old pacing colt of the year, undefeated in 15 starts. At 3, Jate Lobell earned 3-year-old pacing colt of the year honors while winning the Confederation Cup, North America Cup, New Jersey Classic, New Jersey Futurity, American National, and 5 NJSS events.
 
He retired to stud duty after a remarkable 3-year-old season as the third richest pacer of all time and was syndicated at an incredible $12 Million Dollar Valuation. 
 
It was in the breeding shed where he made a significant and lasting impact as a regular at the top of all stallion categories throughout his stallion career. His offspring earned a remarkable $105,341,187. Jate Lobell’s offspring have averaged over $82,000 per starter, having produced many of greats in recent racing history like Riyadh ($2,763,527), David’s Pass ($1,652,500), Gothic Dream ($1,528,671), Village Jasper ($1,057,595), to name a few.
 
Not only was Jate Lobell a super-sire, he will long be remembered as a prolific broodmare sire, with his daughters producing winners of over $203,978,794 
including Mister Big ($4,008,257), My Little Dragon ($2,318,623), Southwind Lynx ($1,763,389), and Sportswriter ($1,566,460), etc.
 
In 2004 Jate Lobell was nominated to the Living Horse Hall of Fame as a racehorse and stallion. 
 
Jate Lobell’s legacy will live on for generations. He was simply one of the greatest ever on the track, in the breeding shed and as a broodmare sire. Jate Lobell put Kentuckiana Farms on the map and we will cherish his memory for years to come. It has been an honor to take care of him as a long-time member of our family. He will be missed, “ said Bob Brady for Kentuckiana Farms.
