TRIXTON TO BE HONORED AS 2014 NJ STANDARDBRED OF THE YEAR

MANALAPAN, NJ – December 23, 2014 – Hambletonian winner Trixton will receive the 2014 Secretary of Agriculture’s Trophy as New Jersey Standardbred of the Year as selected by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture.

Trixton and Deo Volente Farms, the 2014 New Jersey Breeder of the Year and the trotter’s new home, will be among the honorees at the 58th Annual New Jersey Breeders Awards Luncheon at 1 p.m. on January 25, 2015 at Charley’s Other Brother in Eastampton Township, NJ.


Trixton


Trixton will begin his career as a stallion in 2015, standing at Deo Volente Farms in Franklin Township, NJ for a fee of $12,000.

“We think Mike Gulotta [CEO of Deo Volente Farms] has demonstrated great foresight to stand Trixton in New Jersey,” said Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association President Tom Luchento. “We hope breeders will share his faith in the future of the New Jersey program and breed their mares to Trixton.”

Trixton was one of three stellar three-year-old trotting colts in the stable of Hall of Famer Jimmy Takter in 2014, heading into the prestigious Hambletonian on August 2 at the Meadowlands. While his stablemates, Father Patrick and Nuncio, seemed like the stronger contenders, it was Trixton who prevailed, with Takter picking up his first Hambletonian as a driver and third as a trainer [Malabar Man in 1997 and Muscle Massive in 2010]. Nuncio was second and Father Patrick made an uncharacteristic break in stride, finishing out of contention.


Trixton


Trixton’s sire, Muscle Hill, is a son of Muscles Yankee; all three generations are Hambletonian winners and stallions who have stood in New Jersey.

Trixton’s 2014 victories also included the Good Times, Simpson, Reynolds, Simcoe and the New Jersey Sire Stakes Championship. He was also honored as New Jersey Sire Stakes Horse of the Year.

A $360,000 Lexington Selected Sale purchase, the trotter raced for the partnership of Bengt Agerup’s Brixton Medical AB of Orsundsbro, Sweden and Christina Takter of East Windsor, NJ. He was bred by Steve H. Stewart of Paris, KY; Martti Ala-Seppala of Hollola, Finland and John Bootsman of Ekero, Sweden.

In two seasons of racing, Trixton earned $947,057, taking a mark of 1:50.3 and posting 12 wins, two seconds and two thirds in 19 career starts.

For tickets to the awards luncheon, which are $35 each, contact Kim Tkacs at 609-292-8830.
