LIS MARA RETURNS TO DEO VOLENTE FARMS

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ – February 14, 2015 -- In its continuing quest to lead the renaissance of New Jersey breeding, Deo Volente Farms announces the homecoming of dual millionaire Lis Mara p,4,1:47.3 ($2,141,661).

The champion pacer's exploits literally built Deo Volente Farms, the 2014 New Jersey Standardbred Breeder of the Year.

In 2006 Lis Mara, who was a stakes winner at age 3, burst onto the free for all scene, winning $1,042,100. Lis Mara won the elimination and final of the Breeders Crown, the Canadian Pacing Derby Final, the Des Smith Memorial and the American National. His 2006 world record Breeders Crown win (1:47.3) was the fastest mile in the history of that prestigious race.

A year later, Lis Mara earned $958,671 while becoming the first horse in 20 years to defend his Canadian Pacing Derby title.

Lis Mara is the fastest and richest son of Cambest from the great broodmare Lisheen.

He had previously stood stud in Ontario and was a shuttle stallion Down Under. Lis Mara will spend the rest of his days at Deo Volente Farms and will stand stud at private treaty.

From limited opportunity, Lis Mara is the sire of the stakes colt Mel Mara, p,3,1:49.1, a winner of over $450,000. In all he has four sub-1:50 pacers with his fastest being Validus Deo p,3,1:48.4.

Philanthropic owner Mike Gulotta contributed a portion of Lis Mara’s earnings toward the rebuilding of Port Au Prince in Haiti after it was damaged by the earthquake. More than 20 new residences were constructed and Lis Mara had a street named after him known as Lis Mara Drive.

"It’s so appropriate that the horse who contributed so much to this farm gets to spend the rest of his days here in dignity and comfort," said Gulotta.

Lis Mara will be available at private contract. Interested breeders should call Linda at 908-282-4848 for further details.
