Trixton, the winner of last year’s $1-million Hambletonian and the joint fastest progeny of former champion trotter Muscle Hill, will be available to breeders in Australia and New Zealand next season.

The frozen semen of the brilliant, young stallion can be accessed through Stallions Australasia.

 ‘We’re very excited to offer this great young trotter to breeders in Australasia. Being out of a champion filly full sister to three star stallions in Conway Hall, Andover Hall and Angus Hall will certainly excite most trotting breeders. I don’t know of a better bred stallion,” Stallions Australasia principal Peter O’Rourke said.

The reigning New Jersey Standardbred of the Year, Trixton was fully booked when standing his first season at the prestige Deo Volente Farms in New Jersey this year.

Among his consorts were world champions Check Me Out and Queen Serene and top broodmares Southwind Serena (dam of world champion Mission Brief) and Graceful Touch (dam of Muscle Mass, Muscle Massive and Thatsnotmyname).

In two seasons of racing in town hall company, Trixton earned $947,057, taking his mark of 1:50.6 in the Hambletonian despite racing the entire mile sitting parked without cover.

In addition, Trixton won such stakes as the $272,100 Goodtimes in 1:51.6 – a Canadian record for three-year-old trotting colts, the $51,500 John Simpson Memorial in 1:51.4, the $47,900 Reynolds Memorial in 1:51.8 and the $218,000 Simcoe Stakes in 1:52.4.

He established a New Jersey Sires Stake record of 1:52.2 winning the $100,000 final of the NJ Sire Stakes Premier Division Championship at The Meadowlands last May.

As a three-year-old he won eight of 11 starts and from 19 lifetime starts he won 12 and was four times placed. He won in 1:54.8 as a two-year-old.

The 2014 USA Trainer of the Year Jimmy Takter, who trained Trixton throughout his career, said: “He is so nice, a real pleasure to drive. He’s a (perfect) 10 in every category.”

The top priced yearling of 2012 at $360,000, Trixton carries an impeccable pedigree made up of champion sires, champion racehorses and champion broodmares.

Muscle Hill, the sire of Trixton, is widely regarded as the greatest trotter of the modern era. The winner of 20 consecutive races, Muscle Hill was the world’s champion three-year-old trotter at which age he took a record of 1:50.2 and established the highest ever single year’s earnings for a Standardbred of $2.45-million.




Muscle Hill has matched his greatness as a racehorse in the siring field, and from just three crops old enough to race has sired the winners of $11-million, with 34 in 1:55 and 25 $100,000 winners including the freakish two-year-old filly Mission Brief, who trotted a world record 1:50.6.

Muscle Hill in turn is the foremost son of Muscles Yankee, the sire of three Hambo winners and the premier sire in America on five occasions.

Trixton’s dam Emilie Cas El Tr 1:57.2 ($454,688) was a two-year-old trotting champion, winning the 1994 O’Brien Award as Canada’s Horse of the Year – and ranks as a full sister to three leading contemporary trotting sires in Andover Hall, Angus Hall and Conway Hall.

The grand-dam Amour Angus is arguably the leading trotting broodmare of her generation and a Hall of Fame immortal.

Trixton is a fine natured horse of good conformation and is a dapple bay. He looks certain to add interest to the ‘Down Under’ trotting scene.
