Briarcliff Manor, NY — White Birch Farm of Allentown, N.J., a four-time New Jersey Breeder of the Year and two-time U.S. Harness Writers Association Breeder of the Year, has announced that its breeding stock will be sold as part of a complete dispersal of the famed nursery at the Harrisburg Mixed Sale on Thursday (Nov. 7).
Preferred Equine Marketing, Inc. will represent the farm as agent.
The farm’s final foal crop (foals of 2019) will be offered in the traditional manner at the 2020 yearling sales.
World-renowned in harness racing, White Birch has bred and raised a host of champions including two-time Pacer of the Year Captaintreacherous, 3-year-old pacing Filly of the Year Darlin’s Delight, U.S. and Canadian Horse of the Year Bee A Magician, and 2 and 3-year-old pacing Fillies of the Year My Little Dragon and Worldly Beauty.
Founded by the late Joseph and Marie Parisi, the farm was operated by their son Michael until his untimely death in December 2015. Since Michael’s passing, the farm continued to operate under Michael’s estate and was named New Jersey Breeder of the Year in 2018.
Leading the consignment will be the likes of millionaire Darlinonthebeach, carrying her first foal and selling in foal to world champion Always B Miki; Hudson Trot winner Celebrity Ruth, carrying her first foal and selling in foal to Muscle Hill; and Act Now, selling in foal to Captaintreacherous.
Other notables include My Little Dragon, carrying a three-quarter sibling to Stay Hungry; Darlin’s Delight, carrying a half to Darlinonthebeach; Worldly Treasure, carrying a half to Captaintreacherous; and Scandalous Hanover, carrying a full to Treacherous Reign.
