Major In Art, a former USA 2YO of the Year and who has been represented by some promising two and three-year-olds this season, is to do stud duties in Victoria at the Goodtime Lodge stud, near Colac, of Ian and Judi Slater, alongside the brilliant unbeaten Goodtime Sammy. They are a royally-bred pair of young sires.

Major In Art, who took a record of 1:50.8 at two years and won almost $900,000 in stakes, is enjoying his best ever season with 58 individual winners and progeny earnings of more than $850,000.

Among his winners have been a SA Derby winner and Vicbred 2YO Final placegetter in Brallos Pass 1:53.5 ($120,432), the talented The Culture (1:51.6), Major Sam 1:54.7 ($137,781), the Bathurst 2YO Sales Classic winners Lagoon Stride 1:56.1 ($126,025) and Goodtime Stride (1:53.2), Dalton Bromac (1:52), the SA Golden Nursery winners Major Cruiser and The Big Show, recent Addington three-year-old winner Stroke Of Luck, Lucky Lombo, Real Stride and this year’s dual NSW Breeders Challenge 2YO heat winner Bullet Stride and placegetter Art Secret.

In North America Major In Art from only three racing crops has sired the winners of $3.2-million including $1.1-million in 2015 - with 31 in the 1:55 list, seven in 1:52 and one in 1:50.

Actually, Major In Art’s percentage of winners to starters – both in Australia and America - rates him highly.

On the score of blood Major In Art lacks nothing. His sire Art Major (1:48.8) was a champion with stake earnings of $3.2-million and has been on Australia’s top sires for some time. He figures as the sire of three of Australia’s most outstanding pacers in For A Reason, Sushi Sushi and Avonnova.

Miami Spice (1:54.8), the dam of Major In Art, was one of the many grand producing daughters of a champion sire in Jate Lobell, being out of a noted producer in Town Tattler (1:54.6), by Big Towner from Tona Hanover, by Tar Heel.

This family traces back to the foundation mare The Old Maid, dam of a champion sire in Bachelor Hanover, sire of Noodlum. Other leading sires belonging to this noted family include Toliver Hanover, Dancer Hanover and Thorpe Hanover.

Major In Art will stand for a fee of $1,60 including GST or $1200 for the first 30 mares.
