"He is the best horse I have ever trained." - Jimmy Takter regarding Father Patrick.

Father Patrick showed his class and charisma on the track his whole career.  With wins that included the Canadian Trotting Classic, Earl Beal, Zweig Memorial, Stanley Dancer and the Haughton Memorial, Father Patrick showed just what he was capable of.

His consecutive Breeders Crown victories at 2 and 3, went on to further cement his status as a one of the best out there.  He was voted the Dan Patch and O’Brien 2yo Trotting Colt of the Year in 2013.

With his pedigree and race record alone, Father Patrick checks all the boxes.  Add on to that his speed and intelligence, and you have a recipe for a successful future as a stud.

Father Patrick's offspring have been dominating on the racetrack.  With this type of early success, we can only dream about what will come next.
