The richest offspring of champion stallion Cantab Hall, Father Patrick was both the US and Canadian 2YO Trotting Colt of the Year after winning 10 of his 11 starts including the elim and Final of the Breeders Crown, elim and Final Peter Haughton Memorial, Bluegrass Stakes, Champlain Stakes and elim and Final Wellwood Memorial. 

His 1:52.2F performance in winning his Breeders Crown elimination in 2013 is still the world record for a 2YO male trotter on a 5/8ths track.

Father Patrick was again in sensational form as a 3YO, winning 12 of his 17 starts and more than $1.6 million in stakes. His biggest wins included the Breeders Crown Final, Canadian Trotting Classic, elim and Final Earl Beal Jr Memorial, Zweig Memorial, Stanley Dancer and the PASS Final. He also finished runner-up in the Kentucky Futurity and the Carl Erskine.

Father Patrick was crowned the Dan Patch 3YO Trotting Colt of the Year and also matched his 2YO World Record deeds, setting a new mark for 3-year-old trotters on a five/eighths track of 1:50.4. 

Combining breeding and racing duties Father Patrick briefly appeared on the track as a 4YO winning the Maxie Lee Memorial (defeating Bee A Magician) and narrowly going down to JL Cruze twice in the Graduate Series before being retired due to a lung infection.

HYPOTHETICAL MATING

Mating Hints

The most successful cross for Father Patrick in North America by far is with mares from the Valley Victory sire line, with this cross accounting for 70% of his top 20 money earners as at August 2022. The Valley Victory sire line in New Zealand is represented through mares by Muscles Yankee, Muscle Hill, Muscle Mass, Skyvalley and Trixton. This cross has already produced an Australasian Breeders Crown winner, a multiple Group 1 performer, and the highly talented current season 2yo, High Energy.

The other cross of significance in the Northern Hemisphere, with two of his three millionaires bred this way, is with mares by descendants of the Hall of Fame broodmare Amour Angus - a full sister to Canne Angus, the grandam of Father Patrick’s sire Cantab Hall. In New Zealand, this duplication of the highly influential sisters can be replicated through daughters of the Garland Lobell sire line stallions Andover Hall, Angus Hall, Majestic Son, The Pres, Quite Easy, Creatine, Monkey Bones and Lucky Chucky.

Sundon mares offer a duplication of Arndon, and this cross has already produced two Group 1 winners down-under. Mares by Dream Vacation will also provide this duplication in the pedigree.

With three small Southern Hemisphere crops of racing age to date it looks like Father Patrick will cross with a wide variety of sire lines with his stakes performers to date also including mares by Monarchy, CR Commando, Kadabra, Crazed, Safely Kept and even Elsu.
