Long Tom won Grand Circuit stakes at both two and three and $410,513. Lightly raced in 2016, he took his freshmen record of 1:55.2 winning his Bluegrass division on the front end. The following week in the International Stallion Stakes he was also hard used and finished third by just a length, trotting his own mile in 1:53.3. In 2017 he started like gangbusters and was a dominant wire-to-wire winner of the $100,000 New Jersey Sires Stakes in 1:52.2, using a .27.3 last quarter to defeat What The Hill, a feat he repeated in his $161,500 Stanley Dancer Memorial division (last quarter time in .27 seconds flat). He also beat champion filly Ariana G while finishing a close second in the $500,000 Earl Beal Memorial after cutting the mile and was third in the $560,880 Canadian Trotting Classic, among other credits.
Muscle Hill is as dominant a sire of trotting champions as the breed has ever seen. And Long Tom gives breeders access to that powerful bloodline like no other son of Muscle Hill, as his maternal family has TWO crosses to the modern foundation mare Yankee Duchess (the third dam of Muscle Hill). Long Tom is bred 4x5x5 to Yankee Duchess.
Long Tom is a handsome-headed horse with good size and we are well satisfied with a fertility test that was recently conducted right off the racetrack.
