New Berlin, NY–Leatherstocking Equine is very pleased to announce that the very fast and talented trotter, The Veteran, will stand his first season at stud in 2022. He is sensibly priced at $2,500 for his first season. A quality stallion prospect at an affordable rate. It just makes sense.
A son of top trotting sire Muscle Mass, The Veteran was a multiple stakes winner during his 2- and 3-year-old seasons and dominated in the New York Sires Stakes program. As a sophomore he established a track record of 1:54.3 at Saratoga winning a NYSS event by nine lengths.
While racing in open competition last year at five, he demolished the track standard at The Red Mile when he won in 1:50.1, shaving more than a second from the previous mark set by Revenue S.
Paul Kelley states that “The Veteran is a big horse with a great gait. He excelled on any size track. New York is the perfect place for him.”
Also a quote from George Ducharme: “The Veteran was a great gaited colt who could get around all size tracks. An honest trotter that gave his best every start.”
The Veteran’s dam is stakes winner Tequila Slammer 2, 1:56.4 ($271,416) and he hails from the immediate family of millionaire Earl Of My Dreams. The Veteran retires with just over a half million in earnings and will have a debut stud fee of $2,500.
