The 2019 Stallion Directory, produced by the Indiana Standardbred Association, is arriving in homes this week. The publication, which showcases all the stallions in the Standardbred industry in the state of Indiana, was mailed Friday, Jan. 4, 2019 and has already started hitting homes.
The cover of the Stallion Directory highlights an Indiana sire and this year’s stallion is Mr Cantab. The now 13-year-old son of Cantab Hall captured the world’s attention this past fall as the sire of Homicide Hunter, who earned a time of 1:48.4 in the $145,000 Allerage Farms Open at The Red Mile. His time is the fastest mile ever trotted in the history of the sport.
Mr. Cantab stood under the Mr Cantab Syndicate at Hoosier Standardbred Farm in Montgomery, Ind. from 2011 until the summer of 2018. He was purchased by John Hershberger’s Hershy Acres of Topeka, Ind. and will stand at that location beginning in 2019.
In addition to million dollar-plus winner Homicide Hunter, Mr Cantab is also the sire of the trotting mare, Custom Cantab, who has earned in excess of $735,000 and a mark of 1:53.0. Other top performers include River Otter (1:53.2, $218,176); Keegan Ho (1:54.3, $156,778); Wheels A Turning (1:56.2, $155,402); Cantad Kid (1:54.3, $141,617); Rose Run Quickley (1:55.4, $137,777); Miss Tootsie Hall (1:57.0, $121,750; and Mr Protab (1:59.1, $109,601).
