MANK in Lethbridge at JC Performance Horses for 2018 breeding season!

This son of Pulpit out of a Seeking the Gold mare sold at Keeneland as a yearling for $290,000.

Pulpit also sired the champion stallion TAPIT whose progeny includes the Multiple Graded Stakes winners, Frosted ($2 Million) who ran 4th in the 2015 Kentucky Derby and 2nd in the 2015 Belmont along with Tonalist ($3.6 Million), winner of the 2014 Belmont. Pulpit’s sire, A.P. Indy is the #1 all-time Leading Broodmare Sire.

Mank has an exceptional maternal lineage. His dam, Stirring, has produced 4 winners including Nowhere to Hide ($217,137) and Meridian Mama ($76,032). Second dam, Daijin, was a graded stakes placed runner with 4 wins at 3 and earnings of $164,044. Daijin is a full sister to Touch Gold ($1,679,907) and half-sister to Horse of the Year, With Approval ($2,863,540). Dajin has produced 6 winners including Serenading ($538,754) and Handpainted ($435,406).

With the passing of Pulpit in 2012, only a limited number of Pulpit stallions remain. With his G1 producing lines, Mank is a superior thoroughbred stallion! Outstanding bloodlines top and bottom for producing talented race and sport horses.

lliad Has The ‘Mind, The Stride And The Pedigree Of A Two-Turn Horse’.
-Two-time Kentucky Derby winning trainer Doug O’Neill


Iliad crushed future Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner Battle of Midway  by EIGHT LENGTHS in Grade 2 San Vicente Stakes romp and finished in front of multiple Grade 1 winner Gormley  when second to Mastery  in the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes.


Iliad is by top sire and all-time great racehorse Ghostzapper .

Iliad is out of Little Swoon  who has seen just two of her progeny race to date, but both are graded stakes winners ( Iliad  & Melmich ).


The young and exciting ILIAD is a big-time bargain at the $3,500 price point.

Malibu Moon, now standing for $75k, started his career in Maryland under similar circumstances for $3,000.

Battle of Midway  ($20k) and Gormley  ($10k), two horses put to the sword by Iliad, further demonstrate value when one considers their stud fee respective to his.

Early support has been tremendous.

Iliad will be one of the top covering sires in Canada!

FEE: $3500.00

The Alberta Thoroughbred community has lost a valued member with the passing of Lynn Chouinard on December 7. Mr. Chouinard was an influential breeder, owner and builder in the industry for the past thirty years through his racing and breeding farm, Bar None Ranches.

Amber-Lynn Jacobson of Running Fawcett Thoroughbred is a busy thoroughbred breeder and trainer as well as a familiar name at the Alberta Thoroughbred Sales. She was the top consignor by average this year and sold the highest priced yearling with a $45,000 Point of Entry filly. One of her all-time favourite horses, however, is a six-year-old full brother to multiple stakes winner Canaveral Leader named Runmommasboyrun (Runrun).

Consigned through the 2012 CTHS Alberta Yearling sale, Runrun was the very first horse Jacobson ever bred and “when he sold, it was bittersweet but from that day,” she said. “I told (buyer) Crystal Cates, manager of Riversedge, that I wanted to have first right of refusal to buy him when he was done racing.”

Thoroughbred Racing Returns to Calgary Area:

This fall was an exciting time for Thoroughbred fans as ‘A’ Track racing made a successful return to the Calgary area on September 23, 2017. This date marked the first time in nine years that ‘A’ track live Thoroughbred racing has taken place in southern Alberta since Stampede Park ran its last race on June 15, 2008. 

 In 2016, the Alberta government signed a new ten year contract with Horse Racing Alberta. This long term deal brought the Thoroughbreds back to the south end of the province this season in a partnership with Century Casinos. Minister of Finance and President of the Treasury Board, Joe Ceci, was in attendance at Century Downs on the final weekend of racing and emphasized that the partnership with Horse Racing Alberta will give the entire horse racing industry renewed stability and confidence to develop future plans, “the return of thoroughbred race horses to Century Downs is an important signal that the industry is thriving.”

 The Jockey Club reminds Thoroughbred breeders that digital foal certificates will be replacing hard copies of foal certificates beginning with the 2018 foal crop. The transition to digital foal certificates was first announced at the Round Table Conference on Matters Pertaining to Racing on August 14, 2016. Read the full news release at  http://www.jockeyclub.com/Default.asp?section=Resources&area=10&story=1020

Breeders, as well as those who act as agents for breeders, who do not already have an Interactive Registration account should sign up for one at registry.jockeyclub.com .

“We encourage those who manage Certificates of Foal Registration to sign up for an Interactive Registration account between now and early 2018 if they have not already done so,” said Matt Iuliano, executive vice president and executive director of The Jockey Club. “The use of digital foal certificates will allow foal papers to be easily transferred between entities at the click of a button, and we are looking forward to implementing this much-needed change.”

“We applaud The Jockey Club for pursuing this digital initiative which, given the number of certificates we manage annually, will create operational efficiencies for Keeneland and greater convenience for horsemen worldwide,” said Bob Elliston, vice president of racing and sales for Keeneland Association.

More information about digital foal certificates will be made available in early 2018 before they are officially launched in the spring.

The Jockey Club, founded in 1894 and dedicated to the improvement of Thoroughbred breeding and racing, is the breed registry for North American Thoroughbreds. In fulfillment of its mission, The Jockey Club, directly or through subsidiaries, provides support and leadership on a wide range of important industry initiatives, and it serves the information and technology needs of owners, breeders, media, fans and farms. It is the sole funding source for America’s Best Racing, the broad-based fan development initiative for Thoroughbred racing. You can follow America’s Best Racing at americasbestracing.net .
