Overview  

Royalty For Life Tr 3, 1:51.6 ($1,620,166), the 2013 Hambletonian champion, Canadian Trotting Classic winner and USA 3YO Trotting Colt of the Year, will be available for breeders in Australia and New Zealand for the first time this year. He is a striking individual in every respect.

The frozen semen of the exciting, young sire – he was foaled in 2010 – is available through Stallions Australasia Pty Ltd whose lineup includes former champion racehorse and now highly successful sire Muscle Hill and international trotting star Wishing Stone.

Royalty For Life recently completed his first northern hemisphere season at the prestige Tara Hills Stud, Ontario where he was fully booked for a fee of $6,000.

Royalty For Life raced only at 2 and 3 years, compiling the excellent record of 14 wins and seven placings from 30 starts for $1,620,166 – an average of $54,000 per start!

As a two-year-old he displayed tremendous early speed, winning seven and being four times placed from 14 starts.

He captured the $328,000 International Stallion Stakes at Lexington in 1:54.4, five New Jersey Sire Stakes event and finished runner-up in both the elimination and $600,000 final of the Breeders Crown.

Royalty For Life really came into his own as a three-year-old, winning seven of his 14 starts and a whopping $1,277,130 in stakes. His victories included the $1.2-million Hambletonian in straight heats of 1:52 and 1:52.2, the $686,000 Canadian Trotting Classic in a stakes record equalling 1:54.4, the $360,000 Zweig Memorial, the $294,000 Stanley Dancer Memorial in 1:52 and an elimination of the $527,000 Kentucky Futurity.

Champion USA driver Brian Sears, who handled Royalty For Life in all his major triumphs, said: “He’s a beautiful horse, he just covers the ground. He lets you know when he’s good. He’s just so talented.”

 

 

Royalty For Life is a most interestingly bred horse. He is the richest son of the former top young trotter RC Royalty (Tr 3, 1:55.2), one of the best of the progeny left by the champion American sire Credit Winner (Tr 1:54). Sons of Credit Winner are now coming to the forefront as sires in America such as Chocolatier and Crazed.

Bourbon N Grits, the dam of Royalty For Life, has left three winners from four foals, while the grand-dam, Texas Winner ($128,323), produced six winners from six foals and the third dam, Texas Starlette, nine winners from 14 foals.

Royalty For Life is a Super Bowl line horse – that which produced the leading Australian trotting sire RC’s Dee Jay – from a prolific winning family of trotters, and boasts a 3x3 cross to American Winner and three strains of Super Bowl blood.

He should prove an ideal outcross to the host of mares by Sundon, Earl, Armbro Invasion, Dream Vacation, Keystone Salute and others.
