Highland Billy - $2.8 million, 9 G1s

Post by Erica Olson » 9 months ago

My Pacer stallion, Highland Billy, has been retired to stud. I kept him racing at 6 because he’s so fun to race - he ended up winning over $1 million this year alone! ($2,870,190 in total earnings, making him the third-highest earning Pacer of all time). He won 9 G1s during his career (17 stakes wins total), as well as 4 SIMMYs. He is by Wanted Aliveornot and out of multiple stakes winner Highland Rosie (by Cumberbatch).

He has hypo’d A+ with all of my blue hen mares that I’ve tested, no matter the pedigree, and A+ with a star by Cumberbatch (A with three other stars that I tested by Wiggle It Jiggleit, Ancient Truth, and Hot Misschief respectively). I don’t keep a lot of star mares, so I only tested those few, but he also hypo’d A with a formidable by Cumberbatch.

I’m opening his stud fee at $20,000 since it’s the end of the year and lots of mares will have been bred already, but if there’s tons of interest I’ll raise that higher. Love this boy!!

A helluva horse, Erica. Just nicked A+ with my best Blue Hen mare, but she's already bred this year.
Kinda glad "Billy" wont be around to run against next year.

Very nice stud Erica! A+ to every mare I've tried so far.

I'm LOVING This colt due to his clean pedigree. Fingers crossed he turns out nice because he would be a great outcross to a lot of mares!

Highland Billy is standing for only $18,000 right now. I’d like to get him lots of quality mares this season so that he gets off on a strong foot as a stud. :)

This is the #1 Value in the SIM right now, or it is --- assuming that a person breeds Pacers. And I do, so I think this is the SIM's best deal.

Don’t worry Erica, I’m sending him nothing but Hens, and I’ll be sending him several per week for the duration of this season 😊

By request, I’ve opened up more breeding slots for Billy this year - get them while they last! (And thanks so much, Glenn, for your kind comment. I just saw this now.)
