Standing in 2019 at Schwartz Boarding Farm in partnership with Diamond Creek Farm

From limited crops, Ponder has produced some of the top 3 and 4yo colts of our time. With champions such as Thinking Out Loud, Bolt The Duer, Bandolito, and Go Daddy Go, Ponder has left his mark. A pervasive perception is that Ponder’s offspring do not begin to do well until their older season, however, champions such as Bolt The Duer ($1,828,995) and Thinking Out Loud ($1,932,805) had exceptionally successful 3yo seasons.

Ponder will be standing in Indiana in 2019,  at Schwartz Boarding Farm located at 4565 S. 600 E. Berne, Indiana 46711.
