EXHI to Stand the 2017 season at Highfield in Okotoks, Alberta

The proven sire EXHI will be standing the 2017 season at Highfield Stock Farm in Okotoks, Alberta for a $3,000 CDN fee. Exhi is a graded stakes winner who earned over $1 Million CDN on the track defeating names such as Drosselmeyer and Champion Essence Hit Man. The Maria’s Mon son sired the sale topper at the 2016 CTHS Alberta Sale and broke a record in 2015 that had stood since 1979 when he sired the highest priced yearling sold in the 2015 CTHS Alberta Sale. The three year old Exhi runner Victory Day is a multiple stakes winner with $96,605 CDN in earnings to date. The two year old Norm’s Big Bucks by Exhi had a perfect record with three starts and three wins going into the Canadian Juvenile Stakes in October where he sadly suffered a career ending injury. Norm’s Big Bucks earned $71,688 CDN as a two year old. Exhi has also sired the three year old Ontario bred That’s A Stretch who has $109,987 CDN in earnings. The first Exhi foals are just three year olds of 2016 and this sire is currently in second spot on the Canada Leading Second Crop Sire list.

Exhi will be standing the 2017 season for $3,000 CDN live foal.
