Betterthancheddar Moves to Ontario for 2015

Thursday, October 30, 2014  By: Standardbred Canada

Winbak Farm of Ontario is proud to announce the addition of Betterthancheddar, p, 2, Q1:55.3s; 3, 1:49.1s; 1:48f ($1,635,364), to its stallion lineup.

“With the new incentives and rejuvenation of the Ontario Program, Ontario is a great place to have Betterthancheddar, a Millionaire son of Bettor’s Delight,” said Garrett Bell, Winbak Farm General Manager. “Betterthancheddar was an outstanding racehorse and has a phenomenal pedigree.”

Betterthancheddar is the son of two Living Hall Of Fame parents, Bettor’s Delight and Lady Ashlee Ann. In 2012, at 4, he was the winner of 2012 O'Brien Award for Aged Pacing Horses/Geldings.

“Cheddar as a baby was a standout in my mind, perfect conformation and perfect size, his gait was astonishing,” said Casie Coleman, trainer of Betterthancheddar. “His grittiness and toughness on the track was unbelievable.”

A tough racehorse, he was one of the top three-year-olds in North America. His wins included the American-National Final, Breeders Crown elimination and Final, Cane Pace, Summertime Pacing Series elimination and the Windy City Stake. He was second in the Little Brown Jug elimination and was a strong third in the Final. He was also second in the Somebeachsomewhere elimination.

“His quick speed to snap off the gate or come out of a hole quick like in the Breeders Crown was incredible, he always gave 110 percent on the track,” said Coleman. “He was very versatile, he could come from the back, snap the wings, come first over or whatever you asked of him.”

At 4, Betterthancheddar won the Ben Franklin Pace elimination and $500,000 Final (in a 1:48 world record), Bobby Quillen Memorial (in a 1:49.2 World Record), Canadian Pacing Derby elimination and Des Smith Classic elimination. He was second in the Canadian Pacing Derby Final and Mohawk Gold Cup.

In 2013, he was second in the Molson Pace and third in the Ben Franklin Pace elimination before suffering a torn suspensory.

His dam has a production record of stakes winners. Lady Ashlee Ann is also the dam of Ashlee’s Big Guy, p, 2, 1:53; 3, 1:51.2; 1:50.4f ($978,168), Artist’s View, p, 2, Q1:55; 3, 1:50.4; 1:49.4 ($788,811) and BJ’s Squall, p, 2, 1:53.2; 3, 1:53.1s ($261,750).

“I know I’ll be definitely be breeding some of my mares to him and be looking to buy some of his yearlings at the sales,” said Coleman.

Betterthancheddar will stand his first Ontario season at an introductory stud fee of $3,500.
