NEW FREEDOM, Pa.--Lord Shanakill, a Grade 1 winner of $910,021, was a top 10 Pennsylvania sire in 2018.

Lord ShanakillLord ShanakillHe arrived at Dr. William J. Solomon’s Pin Oak Lane Farm in January, 2016 from the Irish National Stud, where he ranked second among Europe’s freshman sires by number of winners in 2014, with 16 worldwide.

He is the sire of 12 stakes performers, including G1 My Dream Boat, the winner of $998, 843 in England, France and Ireland, Time Shanakill, the G2-placed winner of $272,359 in France and Italy, G2 Themis, g1-placed Dark Kingdom and G3-placed Great Dancer among others.

His runners have amassed more than $1 million.

My Dream Boat won the Prix Perth-G3 in France; Great Dancer (Ire) was third in the Hill Prince Stakes-G3 at Belmont Park; and Mister Brightside (Ire) was second in Santa Anita’s Twilight Derby-G2 in his only U.S. start.

In 2016, My Dream Boat (Ire) won the E750,000 G1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot on June 15, winning the 10 furlong event with a strong finish, beating the world’s number one rated racehorse, A Shin Hikari (Jpn), and Breeders’ Cup Turf winner, Found (Ire).

“HE IS A really nice horse,” said Dr. Solomon. “He’s the perfect breeding horse. He’s fertile, and he’s very good looking.”
“He was a extremely fast horse,” said Dr. Solomon. “He was just a whisker short of being the champion 2-year-old in Europe. and again at 3. His owners felt that with the speed he carries he would be a good fit for American racing.”

“He’s a Speightstown Group 1 winner,” said Dr. Solomon. “Plus he has an outstanding pedigree for both the grass and the dirt.

Lord Shanakill won the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat in France at 3 going one mile. At 2, he made eight starts in England and France and hit the board seven times, five in group company, with a victory in the six-furlong Mill Reef Stakes-G2 at Newbury, and Group 1 placings when second, by a nose, to Intense Focus in the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket and third in the Prix Morny at Deauville.

He concluded his career at age 4 with back-to-back seven-furlong stakes scores in England, culminating with the Group 2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood.

In his 18-start career he won five times and placed in seven others, for earnings of $910,021, and counted additional Group 1 third-place finishes in the Lockinge Stakes behind champion Paco Boy (Ire) and St. James’s Palace Stakes to champion Mastercraftsman (Ire).

Lord Shanakill is out of the Theatrical (Ire) mare Green Room, a half-sister to G1 winner Spanish Fern and to the dam of G1 Santa Anita Handicap winner and millionaire Heatseeker (Ire).
Green Room also has produced Group 1 winner Together Forever and G1 winner Forever Together, and the family includes champions Al Bahathri, Haafhd and Hasbah (Ire).

Lord Shanakill will stand for 2019 for $3,500 live foal with multiple mare discounts of $2,500 for the breeding of two mares, and $2,000 for three or more mares.

When buying an OTTB, make sure you get a bill of sale

By PAT DALE

Owner of THREE PLAIN BAYS and successful OTTB trainer

When I started buying and selling horse all you ever got was the horses Jockey Club papers …IF the trainer had them, and occasionally a receipt for amount paid.

Pat Dale 1More often than not, just the lead shank with horse in your hand.

Fast forward to the 2000’s.

The Bill of Sale (BOS) serves both parties to prove new transfer of ownership, identify horse, and spell out many other often over looked facts.

The bill of sale is for BOTH Parties protection.

It is proof of ownership and payment; Jockey Club papers are not proof of ownership.

Check with the Jockey Club, they identify the horse for registration and racing or breeding purposes.

There is a whole host of rules regarding this easily found on line.

Pat Dale 2A good bill of sale will name the Seller who can be the current owner, or someone engaged as Agent for Selling owner.

The BOS should say if the seller is an agent who they are acting on behalf of and who the current legal owner of the horse is, the price agreed upon and paid, iIdentifying form of payment. either Check number or Cash or, if done by PayPal or Bank transfer, the accompanying transfer numbers.


When paying by PayPal frequently you will see a request for a “Friends and Family” payment since this avoids PayPal taking a percent.

Avoid this, use the “Goods” option and add back in the small percent taken by PayPal.

Pat Dale 3Protection that in a dispute you have recourse also Paying your PayPal with a Credit Card who may help with a dispute. (Do check with your CC for specifics.)

Rules for registering a Thoroughbred mare or stallion with Breed societies for approval require not only a Bill of sale but also the horse's parent registration original papers.

USEF/USEA require a bill of sale from last USEA/USEF owner who is listed with them when you go to have a horse transferred into your name.

So, if the person you bought the horse from did not compete this horse, you will need to contact whomever registered the horse and have them complete a transfer of ownership form.

Check with governing bodies.

If you are the register USEF/UEA owner having a pre-signed Transfer of Ownership form as well as copies of horses current Identification number saves everyone a lot of time.

A good BOS identifies horse by Both his Jockey Club name and any Registered Show names, be it USEA/USEF or T.I.P. ,his age, base color and even Tattoo if legible.

I like to include an Equibse print out of the horses past racing results and pedigree chart.

Include a line statement that covers whether or not buyer had an independent PrePurchase done and have buyer initial or check it off which is cover both for you and the buyer.

Listing disclosed vices or blemishes all parties were made aware of can help in case of a dispute.

Pat Dale 4Again, have the buyer initial or check these off. The Keep it simple stupid rule does not apply when selling horses.

Include the state where the purchase takes place.

So, if you like me live in Maryland but ship the horse out of state for a Pre Purchase veterinary examination, if the buyer concludes the sale after Pre Purchase and pays/takes possession of horse, then that state is where sale transpired.

Check with your states rules regarding livestock sales as  Eevery state varies, and it helps to know, especially when a lot of sales are done via internet and wire, with horse shipping to a faraway state but the sale was concluded in your home state.

When I first set up business, I bought a horse from a Lawyer.

She sent me a BOS with this added to bottom. She was a Business attorney in state of Maryland. This has been my added to my B.O.S. and I have shared it with many other sellers.

“This bill of sale shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Maryland. The items transferred hereunder shall for all purposes be treated as “goods” within the meaning of the Maryland’s uniform commercial code.
Seller makes no warranty of any kind as to the said described horse, expressed or implied, and further disclaims any and all warranties, expressed or implied, including warranties of merchantability and fitness, suitability or soundness for any particular purpose. Horse is sold “AS IS” and “WITH ALL FAULTS” and ownership, responsibility and risk of loss of horse passes to purchaser upon transfer of the above stated funds or signing of Bill of Sale (whether delivery of personal check, cash, or wire transfer, PayPal) regardless of whether Buyer takes physical possession of the horse on the date of the transfer of said funds.. Sale is considered Final and Complete upon signing and or transfer of funds, with payment amounts as agreed upon.
In witness whereof, the Seller/Agent has executed and delivered this bill of sale on this date”
