Trot Insider has learned that Justice Hall, sire of 2012 Breeders Crown Three-Year-Old Colt Trot winner Intimidate, is on the move, and is currently offering breeders a timely opportunity.

Agent Jean Cloutier has informed Trot Insider that Justice Hall 4, 1:54.4 ($811,879) has been purchased by an unnamed Canadian interest.

Cloutier told Trot Insider that the new connections of Justice Hall are looking for an Ontario farm to stand the stallion for the upcoming 2013 breeding season, and that the stud's breeding career will be managed jointly by Cloutier and the farm.

Interest in Justice Hall has been on the rise since his well-managed son, Intimidate, stepped up against the top three-year-old trotting colts late in the season and showed them what he was made of in the Breeders Crown at Woodbine Racetrack.

After have triumphed impressively in his 'Crown' elimination a week prior, Intimidate flourished in the prestigious final, as he defeated Hambletonian and Canadian Trotting Classic winner Market Share, as well as the speedy Little Brown Fox and highly regarded combatants Prestidigitator and Knows Nothing in 1:52.4.
