The millionaire world champion son of Walner - KING OF THE NORTH - makes his debut season in Australasia at Llowalong Farms, being offered as fresh or chilled semen. This outstanding trotting sire gives southern hempisphere breeders a unique opportunity to upgrade square gaiting genetics as well as bringing an unmatched race record and overall type. All the majors are there - the Wellwood Memorial, Haughton Memorial, NJ Sires Stakes, the Erskine, and of course, the Breeders Crown in a sweep of the elimination and the final in which he recorded TR1:50.3 - the fastest ever 3YO Breeders Crown time for trotters, the fastest ever Canadian mile trotted by a colt, and a Woodbine Mohawk Park track record.

 "This stallion is a real superstar and will be a breed changer down under," said studmaster Dr McIntosh, who flew to North America to see the stallion in the flesh before sealing the deal with his owners. "I have inspected the semen myself and it is excellent, which is also reflected in his first season strike rate in Canada and the US. I'm confident he will prove a very fertile option for breeders using both his fresh and chilled semen in New Zealand and Australia.

KING OF THE NORTH brings the opportunity for breeders to branch into the high-demand North American line of Walner, a superstar in his own right and also a Dan Patch Two Year Old Trotting Colt of the Year. Last year's draft of Walner yearlings brought an average of $121,720 in the ring, showing the faith owners and trainers have in his ability to throw a champion. We think his son will do just the same - and not just because of his sire.

Dam Check Me Out (Donato Hanover) was a world champion, earning $1.9m herself with a PB of TR1:51.2 and her own Dan Patch Trotting Filly of the Year title - as well as the O'Brien title - as both a two- and three-year-old. Of her six foals to date, four have been winners and is the granddam of Instagram Model, the third-fastest juvenile trotting fillly last season in North America.
