“I am so happy to announce Jimmy Freight, full and closed,” said Pat Woods, Winbak Farm of Ontario Manager. “He's a fan favorite and I loved to watch him race.”


Jimmy Freight, p, 2, 1:52.3s; 3, 1:48.3s; 1:48.1s -'19 ($1,457,405), is standing his first year in 2020. He stands at Winbak Farm of Ontario.


“He could race from any post, on any track, against anyone,” said Woods. “He competed every night and beat some of the nicest horses in North America. I am glad to see the breeders recognize the potential and support this horse.”


Jimmy Freight’s connections are grateful for the support that he has had in North America.


“It's fantastic to see the response he's had from breeders both in Canada and the US,” said Adriano Sorella, Jimmy Freight’s owner.


Adriano spearheaded a massive marketing plan to get Jimmy Freight attention amongst a competitive lineup of Ontario stallions. He introduced the $100,000 Jimmy Freight Stakes that is going to be just for Jimmy Freight offspring. The plan included using social media and race simulcasting to his full advantage.


“The response to the marketing and advertising efforts were great. I was looking to do just a little more and add my experience as an online marketer to the racing side of it,” said Sorella.


Woods looks forward to seeing Jimmy Freight’s offspring race.


“I really like what Jimmy brings to the Ontario breeders, his slick gait and ability to carry his speed in the corners will allow his offspring to get around any size track,” said Woods.  “These traits should make his offspring competitive in Ontario Sire Stakes racing and beyond.”


Sorella is excited to see what his own mares produce (that are being bred to Jimmy Freight) and to have the opportunity to buy future Jimmy Freight offspring from other breeders.


“I have personally bred a few to him and I am excited to see his foals go through the sales ring in the years to come.
