PA Division

Pennsylvania is a land of opportunity. And Northview PA offers Pennsylvania breeders the best of all worlds at its stunning facility in Peach Bottom.

Opened for business in 2009, Northview PA is situated on 180 acres of fertile farm land in picturesque Lancaster County. The eight-stall stallion barn, breeding shed, management and booking office, and two 20-stall broodmare/foaling barns were completed by expert Amish craftsmen at B&D Builders. And additional improvements are constantly in the works. . . with an eye for detail to ensure the best facilities for your mares and their foals – the stars of the future!

Northview PA has the best stallion roster in the state, bar none. The horsepower residing at Northview PA is led by the most established sire in the region – JUMP START.

Northview has had a tremendous history of launching the careers of young sires, the newest the hot young prospect EL PADRINO, whose first foals are hitting the track in 2017.


New to Pennsylvania in 2017 is track record-setting, Grade 1-placed UNCLE LINO, the first son of red-hot young sire Uncle Mo to stand in the Mid-Atlantic region. He joins established leading PA sires BULLSBAY, FAIRBANKS and MEDALLIST.

JUMP START remains one of the most consistent sires in nation. The highest ranked U.S. sire standing outside of Kentucky (by North American earnings) in 2011, he has also been the Mid-Atlantic region’s leading active sire since 2013. The son of A.P. INDY has sired 53 stakes winners to date. Quality abounds: 16 of his stakes winners are graded winners, including millionaires PRAYER FOR RELIEF, PANTS ON FIRE and Gr.1 winner RAIL TRIP, a four-time graded winner and second in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile-G1. His South American crops include Argentinian Horse of the Year, champion older male and stayer IDOLO PORTENO and additional Group 1 winners LIVINGSTONE, DONA JOYA and SERESTA.

A ton of flash, talent to match, and a member of one of racing’s most sensational families makes EL PADRINO impossible to miss! His first runner to the races, Whereshetoldmetogo, won first time out in early June 2017.

EL PADRINO broke his maiden at 2 over a Belmont sloppy track by 12 3⁄4 lengths and was a Gr. 2 winner at Fair Grounds in the Risen Star S. at 3 in near track-record time of 1:42.96 for 1 1⁄16 miles. He was stakes-placed at 2 in the Gr.2 Remsen S., and was three lengths behind winner Take Charge Indy in the Gr.1 Florida Derby, missing third to classic winner Union Rags. Hitting the board in six of eight starts, he earned $326,770. The half-brother to Irish champion older male Verrazano, winner of the Gr.1 Haskell Invitational S. and Wood Memorial S. and an earner of $1,878,013, EL PADRINO is from a family of Grade 1 performers, including his Gr.1-winning second and third dams – Chic Shirine, a full sister to champion Queena; and Too Chic. The prolific family includes the likes of Somali Lemonade, Brahms, Harmonize, Serra Lake, etc.

UNCLE LINO retired with six wins or placings in eight starts for earnings of $316,160. In his two starts at 2, he missed by a neck in his debut at Del Mar after battling for the lead the entire 5 furlongs, then won second time out, also at Del Mar, drawing off to win by 2 3/4 lengths while setting fractions of :22.02, :45.08 and 1:09.58 and stopping the clock in 1:16.28 for 6 1/2 furlongs. From January through May 2016, he made six starts, including a track record-setting performance in winning the California Chrome Stakes at Los Alamitos in which he led at every call to complete the 1 1/16-mile distance in 1:40.82, breaking the previous mark set by Dortmund. He finished second earlier in the year to Mor Spirit in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes-G3 and was third in the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby to eventual Preakness winner Exaggerator and Mor Spirit, the latter one of the top handicap horses of 2017.

UNCLE LINO is out of the Orientate mare Haysee, a full sister to Alabama Stakes-G1 winner Lady Joanne and half-sister to classic winner Shackleford ($3,090,101, Preakness S-G1, Metropolitan H-G1, Clark H-G1, etc.), graded winners Baghdaria and Afleeting Lady and stakes-winning, graded stakes-placed Stephanoatsee. Shackleford ranked in the top-10 among sires on the nation’s freshman sires list in 2016.

FAIRBANKS, a multiple graded stakes winner of $879,768 and $1.85-million Saratoga select sales topper by world-renowned champion and the nation’s leading sire the past thee years, Giant’s Causeway, launched his stud career in 2009 with the biggest book of mares for any new Pennsylvania stallion in history. When his first two crops got to the races, he rose to the top, becoming the leading first, and then second-crop sire in the region! In his third crop he sired graded stakes winner ONE GO ALL GO. He is currently the second-leading active sire in Pennsylvania. In three seasons of racing, FAIRBANKS consistently put up big numbers – in 13 starts on the main track at ages 4 and 5, he recorded Beyers of 100 or higher seven times, with the other six in the 90s – and had a career best 115 Beyer speed figure at Santa Anita in the Tokyo City H.-G3. A half-brother to Gr. 2 winner and $462,854-earner Keats and Gr. 3-placed juvenile Grand Score, Fairbanks is out of a half-sister to Darn That Alarm, Strong Performance and Jiggs Alarm.

The only Grade 1-winning son of two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic-G1 winner and top sire TIZNOW standing in the region, BULLSBAY has become a hot sire of 2-year-old runners! When his first crop reached the races in 2014, he was the Mid-Atlantic’s leading freshman sire, with his first two winners being stakes performers. In 2016 his four 2-year-olds winners included stakes winners GREATBULLSOFFIRE and UNRIDEABULL! BULLSBAY embodies heart, talent and determination. It’s in the genes – he’s by one of the toughest race horses to compete in decades and his stakes-placed dam, The Hess Express, won or placed in 11 of her 13 starts. BULLSBAY earned $923,245 and his seven victories included Saratoga’s Whitney H.-G1 (a 107 Beyer Speed Figure). He is a half-brother to Gr. 3 winner Our Khrysty and juvenile stakes winners VEGAS NO SHOW and HIDDEN EXPRESSION from the family of Gr. 1-winning millionaire Grecian Flight.

MEDALLIST has sired 12 percent stakes horses per starters, led by New York-bred champion IBBOYEE, a six-time stakes winner of more than $700,000 from his first crop! His average earnings per starter is more than 34 times his stud fee! A sensational sprinter by classic winner Touch Gold out of stakes winning, Gr. 1-placed Santaria (by champion sprinter Star de Naskra), MEDALLIST was a graded stakes winner each year he raced, winning four stakes, three in track or stakes record time over three different ovals.
