Inglewood, ON — On Saturday (Oct. 17), Winbak Farm of Ontario will be hosting the new Ontario Select Yearling Sale. The sale will be held the same weekend as the Ontario Sire Stakes Super Finals. There will be 100-120 horses to be sold; limited entries are available. “In response to the COVID-19 and the cancelling of the in-person London Sale, we came up with the sale idea to make it easier for buyers,” said Joe Thomson, Winbak Farm owner. “We wanted to give the buyers a chance to inspect our horses in person where they are prepped and at a central location. The sale will start at noon in order to give buyers a chance to preview the yearlings before the sale starts. Sale management hopes the time will also give attendees a chance to get to Woodbine Mohawk Park before the races start. “We plan on having a sale preview day on Friday and a one-day sale on Saturday,” said Pat Woods, Winbak Farm of Ontario Manager. “Closer to the sale date, Winbak Farm will have 47 yearlings at the farm available for early viewing. The plan is to have them on-site 30 days prior to the sale.” Additionally, Preferred Equine Canada will be having a consignment representing fellow Ontario breeders. “We will list on the website where other consignors will be available for viewing prior to the sale,” said Thomson. “The sale will conform to Ontario guidelines regarding the virus.” It is important for potential consignors to note that the sale entry deadline will be July 17 or at an earlier date if the available slots are full. The plans for the sale include live video streaming and phone and internet bidding. Interested parties are encouraged to call Pat Woods at 905.838.2145 or email him at pat.woods@winbakfarm.com as soon as possible due to limited amount of consignment spots available. More information for this sale will be available soon. The Ontario Select Yearling Sale website will be coming soon. Winbak Farm of Ontario

Winbak Farm has announced that the newest member of its stallion roster at Winbak of Canada, My MVP, is going to a “bogo” stud fee for the upcoming harness racing breeding season. The “buy one get one free” offer means that one mare can be bred to My MVP this year at his stud fee of $4,000 Cdn., with a second mare bred at no charge. Or, breeders may contract to breed one mare this year, and the same or another mare next year. According to Winbak of Canada manager Pat Woods, the offer is being made to ensure that the stallion gets the numbers he deserves in his first Ontario crop to showcase his siring ability. “He’s already proven--with just his small first crop--that he can get you sire stakes winners and trotters that can compete in the major open stakes,” Woods said. “We think he’s a great fit for the program here and we think it won’t take him long to prove he’s one of the best,” he added. My MVP’s first crop of 29 starters, eligible in Ohio, included 2018 Goodtimes winner Wolfgang 3,1:51.2 ($578,560) along with four other $100,000-plus winners and multiple Ohio Sire Stakes winners. That crop ranked the son of Cantab Hall as one of North America’s leading percentage sires in the categories of 1:55 trotters and average earnings per foal. Interested breeders may visit winbakfarm.com for more information or call the Winbak of Canada office at (905) 838-2145. From Winbak Farm

My MVP, the sire of this year's Goodtimes and Stanley Dancer Memorial winner Wolfgang 3,1:51.2 ($577,310), will be relocated to Winbak Farm of Ontario. His stud fee has been set for the 2019 season at $4,000 Cdn. He stood his first four seasons in Ohio at Sugar Valley Farms.   In making the announcement, Winbak owner Joe Thomson said he welcomes the son of Cantab Hall, and added that he brings an amazing set of accomplishments to the Canadian program, despite being a young stallion with only two crops of racing age.   "My MVP takes the guesswork out of breeding to an unknown commodity," Thomson said. "Despite him being relatively young, he's already proven his ability to produce successful trotters at the highest level of stakes racing, and in sire stakes as well.   "I like that he's a Cantab Hall, as he crosses well with so many Ontario-owned mares. I plan to breed a significant number to him myself next year."   My MVP's first crop has made him far and away Ohio's number one sire of 3-year-olds in average earnings per foal, percentage of 1:55 trotters, and percentage of stakes winners. He has sired 15 stakes-winning or stakes-placed 3-year-olds this year from just 25 starters.   In addition to Wolfgang, his 3-year-olds of this past season included Ohio Sire Stakes and Ohio Breeders Championship winner Rising MVP 3,1:54.4h ($167,952) and multiple OSS winners Spunky Bottom Girl 3,1:54.2h ($167,725) and Non Smoker 3,1:54f ($111,138).   The major shareholder in My MVP is Versailles, Ky.-based Brittany Farms. Brittany manager Art Zubrod said he thanks Sugar Valley Farm manager Joe McLead for his help in getting the young stallion's career off the ground.   "We really like what we've seen from his early crops," Zubrod said. "My MVP sires horses that are very long, clean-gaited and big-striding. I expect them to move up considerably when they start racing over Mohawk's 7/8-mile track."   From Winbak Farm of Ontario    

At a young age, Pat Woods knew that he wanted to be involved in harness racing in some capacity. While most get involved in the business because of family ties, Woods started out at as a fan. "I spent most Saturday nights in the summer running around the grandstand at Kawartha Downs when I was a kid," Woods said. "My neighbor always had a horse or two racing so we would go and watch." At fifteen years of age, Woods got a job working for George Davey Racing Stables looking after the broodmares, foals, and race horse layups. He went on to groom one of Davey's 3-year-old Sire Stakes contenders named Kendal Christopher. Woods spent 5 years with Davey before moving on to the breeding side of the business. After one year at Kendal Hills Stud Farm, Woods was hired by Dave Heffering's Tara Hills Stud. During that time, he graduated from the Canadian Horseshoeing School. "I was fortunate enough that David Heffering gave me a leave for 4 months, and time to apprentice after I graduated while working for him," Woods said. "He has always been a supporter of industry people bettering themselves. He was very instrumental in me being where I am today in this industry." Wood's went on to manage Oak Knoll Stables in Campbellcroft, Ontario for six years before joining Winbak Farm's Ontario location as their Farm Manager. Woods knew he made the right decision after traveling down to the Maryland Farm to meet with Owners Joe and JoAnn Thomson and General Manager Garrett Bell. "I was attracted to want to work for Winbak for a few reasons," Woods explained. "They have bred and raised some of the best horses in the sport like Muscle Hill, Bettors Delight, and Rainbow Blue. They also have one of the best stallion rosters at the Ontario farm. It will give me a chance to be a part of improving racing in North America." Woods has stayed plenty busy in his new role, especially during the busy sales season. "At the current time, we are very busy prepping the London Select Sale horses. Our days are filled with grooming, standing, cross tying, bathing, and exercising the yearlings," Woods explained. "We have visitors coming to the farm frequently to inspect the yearlings before the sale this time of year. We are also weaning foals and catching up on the maintenance of the farm before we are back in breeding season again." Woods and his staff focus on showcasing the yearling's manners, athleticism, and conformation for the buyer. They also spend a lot of time with hands on work, which include brushing and handling the yearlings to earn their trust. As far as what the future holds for Woods, it's actually pretty simple. "Enjoy life, spend time with my kids and keep Winbak Farm of Canada running smooth," Woods said. "Larry and Jackie Drysdale left things in great order here. They were such wonderful people to work with. I cherish the friendship that I gained working with them." By Mike Bozich, for Post Time with Mike and Mike

Bob McIntosh is a little embarrassed to admit even he didn’t fully realize how much he had earned in Ontario Bred Rewards with his star homebred pacing filly L A Delight in her rookie harness racing season in 2015. “To tell the truth, I didn’t even know all these things were available. I was as shocked as anybody when I got the cheque,” said the Hall of Fame trainer from LaSalle, ON. L A Delight earned $704,335 on the track and collected an additional $179,959 in Ontario Bred Rewards throughout the season the daughter of Bettor's Delight is Ontario Sired and McIntosh paid the $50 to enroll her dam, West Of L A, in the Ontario Resident Mare Program. (Those living outside of Ontario please note: the resident mare program is open to horse owners anywhere in the world. The ‘resident’ part refers to the mare needing to reside in Ontario for a minimum of 180 days, including the date of foaling, to remain eligible). Since West Of L A was enrolled in the Program and remained in Ontario for at least 180 days, L A Delight qualifies as being Ontario Bred. She is also Ontario Sired because Bettor's Delight stood in the province the year L A Delight was conceived. He is standing at Winbak Canada in the Toronto area for 2016. McIntosh and his partners — C S X Stables of Ohio and Al McIntosh Holdings Inc. of Leamington, ON — first earned $99,113 rewards because L A Delight is Ontario Bred. That amount is 15 per cent of $660,755, which is the combined total of the $256,500 she earned in Ontario Sires Stakes competition and the $404,255 she made in selected open stakes. Since L A Delight is both Ontario Sired and Ontario Bred, she earned an additional $80,846 in bonus money because she qualified for the Standardbred Breeders of Ontario Association (SBOA) Enhanced Breeders’ Program that split $1 million on a pro-rata basis between all eligible horses. In 2015, that bonus amounted to over 12 per cent of what each horse earned in Ontario Sires Stakes and selected open stakes. McIntosh owns some 50 broodmares, making his one of the largest Standardbred bands in Ontario. Asked whether nearly $180,000 in bonus money was critical to his bottom line, he said, “It sure is… It pays a lot of bills on the ones that don’t produce those types. It’s a major incentive.” The trainer said L A Delight returned to his farm on Jan. 9 after spending a few months turned out at Carter Duer’s Peninsula Farm in Kentucky. “She looks good. She grew a bit. She’s a good-looking filly,” said McIntosh who has a huge number of young horses in training for 2016, many of them homebreds. “I have 69 horses here in training and 35 of them are two-year-olds,” McIntosh said. Today, he’s giving thanks that a large number of those are eligible to Ontario’s lucrative Resident Mare Program. To learn more about Ontario’s breeding programs please click here.

Goshen, NY--- Joe Thomson, founder and co-owner of the expansive Winbak Farms breeding operation, was inducted into the Living Hall of Fame during ceremonies at the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame Sunday night (July 5). Also receiving honors on the night were Living Horse Hall of Fame inductees Somebeachsomewhere and Deweycheatumnhowe; Communicators Hall of Fame inductees Bob Marks and Kathy Parker; Immortals Jimmy Jordan and Garland Lobell; Hall of Fame broodmares Art’s Vintage and Presidential Lady; amateur driving champion Steve Oldford; and 2014 Horse of the Year JK She’salady. Thomson and his wife, JoAnn, started Winbak Farm in 1991. Headquartered on nearly 3,000 acres in Chesapeake City, Md., Winbak Farm has been ranked the leading breeder more than 20 times in three different states or provinces and was U.S. Harness Writers Association Breeder of the Year three times in a single decade. In light of his success, Thomson was quick to point out that he has a crack staff at his operations in four states and Ontario. “I often think to myself, ‘What would you do without that staff?’” he said. “Well, you wouldn’t be able to do a lot of business. I would make an analogy to be like a guy in a canoe, in the middle of a lake, without a paddle. [He’s got] lots of ideas, but a failure to execute.” Thomson was introduced by fellow Hall of Famer Jim Simpson, president of Hanover Shoe Farms, making him a rival on the breeder leaderboard and an ally when the duo travel to Harrisburg, Pa., to remind state legislators of the benefits of alternative gaming revenue to the horse racing industry. “He built an outstanding broodmare band, well over 350 mares,” said Simpson before adding, tongue-in-cheek, “I’ve asked him how many mares he has. He won’t tell me.” Somebeachsomewhere and Dewewycheatumnhowe were 2008 Pacer of the Year and Trotter of the Year, respectively, with “The Beach” taking Horse of the Year. Brent MacGrath, who trained and co-owned Somebeachsomewhere with James Bagnell, Pamela Dean, Reg Petitpas, Garry Pye and Stuart Rath, marveled at how consistent the horse was during a two-year career in which he won 20 of 21 races, $3,221,299 in purses, and took a mark of 1:46.4 at The Red Mile at 3. “It really made me feel good that in his last race he appeared to be as good as he was the first day he stepped on the track,” he said. Local boy Deweycheatumnhowe was trained, driven and co-owned by Ray Schnittker, who kept the horse at his barn a stone’s throw from the Museum at Historic Track. He noted that the winner of $3,155,178 in purses, who he co-owned with Charles Iannazzo, Ted Gewertz and Frank Baldassare, was a favorite among his connections and even his competitors. “When ‘Dewey’ won the Hambo, Kelvin Harrison said that the roar from the grooms and second trainers in the paddock at the Meadowlands, he’d never heard that before,” he said. “It was a great honor that everybody was rooting for the horse.” Marks is a longtime writer, pedigree analyst and yearling marketer, and was introduced by fellow Communicators Hall of Famer, Murray Brown, of Hanover Shoe Farms. Parker, editor and general manager of The Horseman and Fair World magazine, was introduced by fellow Communicators Hall of Famer Moira Fanning of the Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown. Immortal inductee Jordan was a leading driver at Roosevelt Raceway in the 1940s and '50s. Horse Immortal inductee, Garland Lobell, was best known for siring the "Trotting Triumvirate" of Andover Hall, Conway Hall and Angus Hall. Broodmare inductees to the Hall of Fame were Art's Vintage, dam of world champion Vintage Master, Great Vintage and Ideal Vintage; and Presidential Lady, dam of 2014 Horse of the Year, JK She'salady, and North America Cup winner JK Endofanera. Oldford was honored as 2014 Amateur Driver of the Year, his fifth such award. The connections of JK She’salady were presented with the 2014 Delvin and Mary Lib Miller Horse of the Year award. by T.J.

One of the first things you quickly learn in the harness racing industry is never put a stallion up on a pedestal too soon and don't hasten to pull him down in a hurry either. So many factors can affect the productive life of a stallion that it always pays to take a long term view with regards to any pronouncements with regards to their worth or lack of. One stallion that has had hugely different results from his first two crops is the son of The Panderosa in Shadow Play.  A standout performer at two, three and four on the track where he took a record of 1:47.4 and earned $1,559,882, Shadow Play was syndicated by Blue Chip Farms on his retirement from the track and stood his first year at Winbak Farms in Ontario in 2010. Shadow Play served a large book of 163 mares which resulted in an initial foal crop of 111 foals which hit the track in Canada in 2013. To say they took the racing scene by storm would be an understatement with the Shadow Plays dominating the Ontario Sires Stakes programme that season. The flagbearer was undoubtedly the very smart Arthur Blue Chip 2 1:51.2 ($400,120) who won a division of the Nassagaweya on his way to the Metro Pace. He then won his heat of the Metro in 1:51.2 in impressive fashion and was made the pre post favourite for the $683,000 final before having to be scratched due to sickness. He came back to win a $105,000 final of the Ontario Sires Stakes Series before being beaten a head in the final of the $534,500 Governors Cup at the Meadowlands. Arthur Blue Chip was proof that Shadow Play could sire grand circuit horses horses and along with several other smart performers  sired by Shadow Play propelled him to fifth on the North American Sires List and he was the second leading first season sire. The world looked his oyster and in the next breeding season Shadow Play served 162 mares in North America and 385 mares in Australasia on the back of the performance  of his first crop. That first crop would carry on at three in North America and he had another great year finishing eighth on the North American Sires List but he was badly handicapped by Arthur Blue Chip missing the whole year. Plenty of others stepped up such as Lady Shadow 1:49.2 ($477,679)  Skippin By 1:50.2 ($409,970) and Play It Again Sam 1:52 ($316,394) but there is no doubt that a fit Arthur Blue Chip would have had him a lot further up the list. At the same time as this was going on, the second crop of Shadow Play were hitting the tracks and they were very disappointing to put it mildly. The second crop numbered 75 foals and earned just $227,942 as two year olds in the 2014 season which was a big letdown after the heroics of his first crop. No Shadow Play earned over $30,000 from the second crop and only three went under 1:55 which is poor in 2014. So here you have a sire whose first two crops are like chalk and cheese and it is hard to know which one to judge him by. Shadow Play did get a great book of mares in his initial season which was diluted bigtime in season two by the arrival of Sportswriter on the stud scene in Ontario so that would have had an effect. Shadow Play's first Australasian crops hit the tracks last season and were ok without looking anything special. In Australia, Shadow Play had a first crop of 91 foals which finished 13th on the two year old sires list last season but he currently sits eighth on the three year old sires list and still has his best two year old from last year in Morior Invictus ($40,807) yet to start at three so he could finish a lot higher by season's end. In New Zealand the first crop of Shadow Play numbers just 19 foals but has produced the very talented Brilliant Strike who has won four of his eight starts to date and looks a legitimate Derby chance in the autumn. Overview Shadow Play is one of those stallions that polarizes people and you either really like him or really dislike him. Supporters can point to his first crop to support their view while detractors can point to his second crop to support theirs. We fall somewhere in the middle.  We know he can produce that elite performer like Arthur Blue Chip and Brilliant Strike but he has yet to strike that consistentcy needed at the top level. How Shadow Play ends up as a sire is still many years away from being resolved in our view and until then any final conclusions either way are premature and likely to be wrong. Harnesslink Media  

Winbak Farm of Ontario introduces millionaire Archangel, 2, 1:58.2s; 3, 1:53.1s; 1:50 -'14 ($1,140,946), to its winning stallion lineup for 2015. "We are very excited to add Archangel, who has a stakes-winning race record and has a World Champion pedigree, to the lineup," said Larry Drysdale, Winbak of Ontario Manager. "His offspring will be potentially eligible to the lucrative Ontario Sire Stakes program, that competed for 15.9 Million in 2014." Archangel was a tough racehorse from the beginning of his racing career. At 2, Archangel won 2 New York Sire Stakes divisions and New York State Fair. He finished second in the Breeders Crown elimination, John Simpson Memorial, 3 New York Sire Stakes divisions and the New York Sire Stakes Final. At 3, Archangel won the Empire Breeders Classic elimination and Final, KY Futurity, NY State Fair, 5 New York Sire Stakes divisions and the Yonkers Trot Final. When Archangel won the Yonkers Trot, he set a World Record of 1:54.1. The mile was a World Record for 3-year-olds on a half-mile track, a track record for the same division, the fastest Yonkers Trot ever raced and a tie for the all-age trotting track record. With his win in a division of the New York Sire Stakes at Batavia Downs, he shattered the all-age track record by winning in 1:54.3. The previous record had been 1:56 and had stood since 1993. Archangel was second in his Hambletonian elimination and New York Sire Stakes prep race. After breeding a select group of mares in 2013, Archangel returned to the races to set a World Record and new lifetime mark of 1:50, tying him with Sebastian K for the fastest trotter ever on a mile track, while winning the John Cashman Memorial elimination in September. He also was second in the Charlie Hill Memorial and Crawford Farms Trot. During his career, Archangel was able to win on a 1/2-mile track, 5/8-mile track, 7/8 mile track and mile track while competing against the best trotters in North America including Market Share and Sebastian K. In addition to his winning performance record, Archangel also boasts an impressive pedigree. He is the fastest & second richest son of Credit Winner. He is the first foal out of Michelle's Angel, 3, 1:54 ($436,921). Michelle's Angel is an Andover Hall daughter of Almost An Angel, 3, 1:56 ($498,577). Archangel was also a $120,000 yearling. "Archangel's pedigree makes him a great cross for mares from the Valley Victory line, including Donerail, Lindy Lane and Muscles Yankee," said Drysdale. "Balanced Image, Mr. Lavec and Kadabra mares will also match very well with Archangel." Archangel will stand for $4,500 in 2015.

Winbak Farm of Ontario is proud to announce the addition of Betterthancheddar, p, 2, Q1:55.3s; 3, 1:49.1s; 1:48f ($1,635,364), to its stallion lineup.

His wins included the American-National Final, Breeders Crown elimination and Final, Cane Pace, Summertime Pacing Series elimination and the Windy City Stake. He was second in the Little Brown Jug elimination and was a strong third in the Final. He was also second in the Somebeachsomewhere elimination.

"He was very versatile, he could come from the back, snap the wings, come first over or whatever you asked of him." At 4, Betterthancheddar won the Ben Franklin Pace elimination and $500,000 Final (in a 1:48 world record), Bobby Quillen Memorial (in a 1:49.2 World Record), Canadian Pacing Derby elimination and Des Smith Classic elimination.
