The 2017 colt by Uncle Peter out of the millionaire mare Action Broadway (T, 4, 1:52.3M $1,102,073) took the 2020 title of being Ohio’s 3 Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year. The sophomore now has a record of 1:52.4H, 12 lifetime wins and $577,535 on his bank roll. Action Uncle also set a world record on a half mile track in Delaware, Ohio this year during the Little Brown Jug Week. A couple races prior to Action Uncle taking the world record, It’s Academic, another Uncle Peter colt out of the Muscle Hill mare Annapolis had broke the world record as well. It’s Academic went on to the Grand Circuit races at the Red Mile just a couple weeks later in Lexington to take his lifetime mark of 1:50.3M becoming the fastest Ohio-bred trotter of all time! Its Academic was bred, raised and sold through Hickory Lane as a yearling. Congratulations to all of the connections! We look forward to more outstanding Uncle Peter offspring arriving in 2021!
