A brilliant son of the breed shaper Muscle Hill, Zenith Stride offers breeders an envious combination of precocious speed, stunning looks and a dazzling pedigree.

Purchased for $350,000 at the famed Harrisburg yearling sale by Emilio and Mary Rosati, Zenith Stride was one of the very highest priced trotting colts that year and he didn’t take long to repay the Rosati’s.

On Hambletonian Day in 2020 Zenith Stride captured the first major two year old race of the North American season – the $319,000 Peter Haughton Final.

Zenith Stride franked this form with a win in the International Stallion Stakes at the historic Red Mile later in the season.

His trainer Mark Harder was a firm believer in Zenith Stride.

“He had a huge clean gait to him and high natural speed that he didn’t have to work at,” said Harder.

“He is a really kind, easy to handle colt. A pleasure to be around with a great personality.”

Zenith Stride is by Muscle Hill out of the stakes winning Credit Winner mare Open Access, who in turn is a full sister to the millionaire Dejarmbro.

Such is the depth of his breeding that on his pedigree page you will find two Broodmares of the Year, two millionaires and a further five $500,000+ earners!

  • Precocious two year old – winner of the Peter Haughton and International Stallion Stakes
  • A $350,000 yearling – he has stunning conformation
  • A true blueblood – his catalogue page features 7 $500,000+ earners and two Broodmares of the Year
  • “Zenith Stride had a huge clean gait to him and high natural speed,” trainer Mark Harder
Zenith Stride will be standing his debut stud season in 2022/23.

Zenith Stride is a true blueblood and his pedigree offers Australasian breeders an exciting option for their mares.

He of course is a son of the World’s leading sire Muscle Hill with maternal lines of Credit Winner, Donerail (Valley Victory) and Garland Lobell.

Mares from the Garland Lobell sireline are an obvious choice for Zenith Stride. Such a mating would result in a duplication of Garland Lobell in the centre of the pedigree which should prove advantageous.

Stallions from the Garland Lobell sireline include Majestic Son, Angus Hall, Andover Hall, The Pres, Creatine, Quite Easy, Monkey Bones, Wishing Stone, Imperial Count, Eilean Donon, etc.

If we look through the pedigrees of the leading progeny of Muscle Hill in the Southern Hemisphere some familiar names appear regularly – Sundon, Love You, Super Bowl, Chiola Hanover and Gee Whiz II.

Love You and Sundon are particularly interesting.

Zenith Stride carries a double up of Valley Victory and we would have no hesitation breeding a Valley Victory line mare to him. There are numerous examples of good horses in the US with at least three Valley Victory strains in their pedigree.
Alabar are thrilled to announce the addition of Zenith Stride to it’s roster for this coming season.
