Rock Hill, NY — In The Arsenal p,2,1:49.4; 3,1:49.1, the million dollar winning swift son of American Ideal, begins his third season at Leatherstocking Equine in New York. His stud fee remains at $2,500.

Returning breeders from 2020, whose mares produced a live foal in 2021 by In The Arsenal, will be eligible to book the same mare, or another mare, at a discounted rate of $2,000.
In fact, many savvy broodmare owners have returned for a second and third year to In The Arsenal.
“They like his foals,” noted Leatherstocking breeding manager Dave Hanson. “We are already booking many repeat mares. The horse is put together well and he passes that on to his offspring. We have some good individuals on the ground and they are nice to be around. Plus, they look the part. Other breeders around the state are having the same experience, they like what they see.”
In The Arsenal earned $1,035,898 racing against some of the fastest pacers on the planet, capturing 18 wins lifetime, finding victory in nearly a third of his starts.
Well-known for his blistering speed at two, winning a leg of the Bluegrass at the Red Mile in 1:49.4, he also won the Lawrence Sheppard Memorial at Yonkers. In fact, in a span of six weeks, he won both his 2-year-old stakes at Lexington, the Historic at Harrah’s Philadelphia, and the Matron at Dover.
This was followed by a brutal ten-hole brush to the lead and cutting the :26.3, :54.3, and 1:23 fractions in his Breeders Crown elimination, finishing third, beaten just a length, in a 1:50.3 mile. The following week, In The Arsenal finished second in the Breeders Crown final, again from post 10, despite being interfered with in the early going.
In The Arsenal was then immersed in one of the toughest group of 3-year-old pacing colts in recent memory. Not only was he born the same year as 2015 Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit, but In The Arsenal also competed against Freaky Feet Pete, Artspeak, Dude’s The Man, Lost For Words, Dealt A Winner and Wakizashi Hanover.
In The Arsenal defeated several of the aforementioned pacing colts, winning his elimination of the Meadowlands Pace in 1:49.1, stepping away from the field with an incredible :25.3 last quarter.
From the multiple stakes winning mare Ladyotra p,2,1:53.2 ($115,627), her production and immediate family is loaded with speed and money winners.
