Briarcliff Manor, NY — World champion Crazed will move to Hanover Shoe Farms in 2013, it was announced today. He stood in New York at Blue Chip Farms since he entered stud in 2009, with full books his first two seasons and well over 100 mares bred in each of the past two.
His fee for next year has been set at $6,000.
Crazed’s first crop, eligible in New York, was led by six-time stakes winner and track record-setter Tirade Hanover 2,1:55.4f ($193,999), while his yearlings have sold for up to $120,000.
Hanover Shoe Farms, under the guidance of Jim Simpson, will take over as syndicate and breeding manager of Crazed, effective with the 2013 breeding season. Crazed is fully syndicated, however, limited bookings are available.
For more information, or to book your mare, contact Jim Simpson at Hanover Shoe Farms at 717.637.8931, or visit their website at www.hanoverpa.com.
The New York Sire Stakes and Excelsior for freshmen trotting colts accounted for 10 of the 12 races on the Monday night card at Tioga and were true to the promise of unpredictable form that baby trotters exhibit.
Top driver Brian Sears made the trip from Jersey for just the one drive on Tirade Hanover and Sears made it count. The precocious gelded son of first crop sire Crazed responded to a flawless steer by lowering the track record for his division by a second and a half to 1:55.4 under minimal encouragement.
Tirade Hanover is now a four-time winner in seven starts (with a few legitimate excuses thrown in) and boasts a return of nearly $80,000 on the $10,000 purchase price for the partnership of Leigh Nichol, S. M. Moss, H. & H. R. Solomon and trainer Tyler Raymer.
Upsets marked the first couple of splits, with Jeff Gregory steering a pair of outsiders to rewarding scores for their small legion of backers. Insider Access got the gold for the first time in his brief career for trainer Jonas Czernyson and owner Jarold Hawks in an impressive 1:59, taking the initial sires stake offering. Gregory spun right back in division two at a mutuel of $47.40 with Prove Up for trainer Linda Toscano and owner Richard Balog when the short priced Twisted Pretzel went awry in the stretch.
Form returned in the final NYSS division when the flashy Credit Winner colt Fashion Blizzard won as expected after his well-meant third in the Peter Haughton final last week. Jim Morrill Jr was aboard for trainer Jim Campbell and owner Jules Siegel's Fashion Farms. This colt is a home bred from Siegel's good stakes winning mare of a few seasons ago, Fun And Strokes.
The most impressive among the six Excelsior winners were two more sons of Crazed. Frank Antonacci let the homebred Crazed N Lindy roll through a wicked 1:25.4 three quarters before coasting in for a 1:57.3 tally. He is owned by the breeders, Lindy Racing Stable, along with Robert Rudolph.
Robin Would sprinted home off a pocket ride to record a 1:58.2 score with Morrill aboard for trainer Larry Remmen and owners Joseph Jannuzzelli, Saverio Spagnolo and Ray Remmen; posting another credit for Crazed's siring résumé. (Tioga Downs)

David Reid, Syndicate Manager for the stallion Crazed, has announced the 2012 stud fee of $3,500.
"In an effort to stay competitive in this tumultuous economy, and maximize his book to its full potential, we feel the new fee reflects a more realistic approach to the ever-changing marketplace," says Stein.
Crazed bred a full and quality book of 140 mares in his first two seasons at stud and another successful book in 2011. His first crop was highlighted by the sale of a colt out of Kimberidge Hanover for $120,000, who is now in the talented hands of Jimmy Takter.
Crazed stands at Blue Chip Farms in Wallkill, NY alongside his sire, Credit Winner. For booking information, please contact Preferred Equine Marketing, Inc. at (914) 773-7777 or visit their website
