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.
The basic terms of the syndication are incredibly attractive. Long Tom will stand the 2018 breeding season at Midland Acres in Ohio for a stud fee of $3,000 for a live foal. Long Tom is being divided into 70 shares, with each share giving the owner the right to nominate TWO mares each breeding season for the stallion's lifetime. Each share is being offered for a cash price of just $9,000, or two annual payment's of $5,000 with no interest.
Midland Acres will retain a significant number of the 70 shares. This structure should ensure that Long Tom has the number of foals he needs to compete on the racetracks. Join us in making him one of the best trotting stallions, not just in Ohio, but the world. Please call to reserve your shares.
