The exodus of stallions from New Jersey continues as Tara Hills Stud and Brittany Stallion Management announced today that 2007's "Horse of the Year" Tell All will relocate to Tara Hills Stud in Ontario beginning with the 2011 breeding season
. His stud fee for next year has been set at C$5,000.
"It's an exciting time to stand a horse of his stature," said Tara Hills manager Dave Heffering. "His first foals just sold as yearlings and are now on the way to their racing careers, so he has tremendous upside. He has been well-supported by major breeders and is an ideal horse for breeders here in Ontario. He had such a big following here, and a lot of his early success came north of the border," he continued.
Tell All p,3,1:48.3-1:50.3h ($1,568,183) won both the elim and final of the $1.5-million North America Cup at Mohawk and furthered his fame with a straight-heats victory in the Little Brown Jug, a lifetime mark (1:48.3) in the Tattersalls Pace in Lexington, and a win in the Breeders Crown elim at the Meadowlands.
He was 2007's all-age richest pacer, co-fastest 3-year-old over a mile track and fastest over a half-mile track. He is Real Desire's richest son and is bred on the same cross that produced the legendary Artsplace.
"Tell All's yearlings were very athletic and they had terrific videos. We have a lot of faith that he can be a top sire," said Brittany Stallion Management's Art Zubrod. "Plus, the Ontario program puts tremendous strength behind a stallion and Tara Hills is a top-flight outfit.
"Tell All had a full first book and had 69 yearlings go through the auction ring this past fall. They ended up in the right hands, so the potential is certainly there," Zubrod added.
