The thoroughbred stallion, Stroll, was purchased by a partnership in Iowa and ISU was honored as the stallion owners felt our central location and facilities would be ideal for mare owners. Stroll is a multiple graded stakes winner of $795,000 and is the sire of 24 stakes horses including 5 in 2017! He has sired progeny with earnings of over $10 million with nearly $1.5 million in 2017 alone, making him Iowa’s top stallion in a runaway! He stands for $2000 Live Foal Stands and Nurses.
Formidable, a graded stakes placed earner of over $200,000 was purchased by ISU and his first small crop of foals who were 3 year olds of 2017 are 100% winners. He is available for $1500 Live Foal Stands and Nurses.
The freshman Quarter Horse racing stallion, Racy Casanova, also found ISU as an ideal location to begin his stallion career. This promising young gray stallion is a three----quarters sibling to leading sire Big Daddy Cartel. He hails from one of the most successful female families of Quarter Horse racing. His pedigree and a 101-speed index suggest he will be a successful sire and his much-anticipated foals will begin arriving in 2018.
The ISU Horse Farm is looking forward to 2018 – the excitement of new students, new foals, and new opportunities is just around the corner.
