Pastor Stephen, who was campaigned as a 2- and 3-year-old by Jimmy Takter, has been sold to Swedish interests, where he will resume his harness racing career. He will be trained by Daniel Reden.

Pastor Stephen, who is sired by Cantab Hall, has lifetime earnings of $1,048.607 and a record of 1:52.4s.

As a 2-year-old, he won the $485,000 William Wellwood Memorial final and finished second in the $600,000 Breeders Crown final behind Manofmanymisisons. Pastor Stephen was first past the wire in the $500,000 Peter Haughton Memorial final, but was disqualified and placed sixth because of interference.

Last year Pastor Stephen won a $126,117 Simcoe Stakes division, was second in the $500,000 Earl Beal Memorial and finished fifth in the $1.5 million Hambletonian.
