At 2, Western Vintage was a force to be reckoned with achieving his mark of 1:49.4 in the Bluegrass Stakes at The Red Mile in Lexington, beating the field of top level colts by several lengths. Owner, Perry Soderberg, said, "Western Vintage is one of the fastest horses that I have ever picked out as a yearling. I have evaluated over
40,000 yearlings, and selected many top horses for Jimmy Takter and others. Western Vintage is one of my all-time favorites and probably the one horse in his crop with the highest ability, in my opinion. As he is a standout individual with a great gait, raw speed and an awesome attitude, I will breed to him and I am excited to buy his yearlings!"
Western Vintage swept the NJSS, winning the first two legs and then the Final to become the NJ State Champion for 2-year-old colt pacers. He won the Metro Elim., finishing second in the final. He comes from a long line of Champions including Adios winner, Vintage Master, Great Vintage and Silk Stockings. Nancy Johansson trained Western Vintage throughout his racing career, she states, "Western Vintage is a charismatic and a naturally great gaited individual. His quick turn of speed, good confirmation, determination and athleticism make him an obvious choice as a sire." Driver Yannick Gingras concurs, "Western Vintage is a great gaited horse with very good manners and an incredible turn of speed."
Sire of Western Vintage, Western Ideal, continues to be very current through his
progeny such as, son Artspeak, 3, 1:47.4m. Communicators Hall of Fame Inductee, Dean Hoffman, said "Western Vintage was a brilliant 2-year-old. When a colt wins his first two career starts in 1:52.4 and 1:52.1, you know he's something special. He won at the Meadowlands, Mohawk, and The Red Mile. To me he was the best 2-year-old pacer of 2013 and I voted for him as the champion. He has a very contemporary pedigree with a deep maternal family. With his early speed, I don't see how he can fail to sire stakes winners."
Western Vintage has the fastest 2-year-old mark,
p,2,1:49.4, of any stallion standing in Ohio. Western
Vintage's first crop are yearlings in 2017. Take advantage of breeding your mare to this high speed, talented stallion. Book early!
