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

Father Patrick's sire Cantab Hall has crossed well with a number of different sire lines, particularly Valley Victory, which is represented in NZ and Australia through mares by the likes of Muscles Yankee, Muscle HillDr Ronerail and Lindy Lane.

Daughters of S J's Photo also have a great record with Cantab Hall in North America so mares by S J's Photo and his sire sons Pegasus Spur and Bacardi Lindy are great choices for Father Patrick.

Mares by Sundon should also suit with this cross offering a double up of Arndon.

An interesting possibility for Father Patrick would be mares by the likes of Majestic SonAngus Hall, The Pres and Monkey Bones with this resulting in influential full sisters Canne Angus and Amour Angus both appearing in the pedigree.
