  • At 2, Western Vintage was a force to be reckoned with achieving his mark of 1:49.4 in the Bluegrass Stakes at The Red Mile in Lexington, beating the field of top-level colts by several lengths.  
  • Western Vintage swept the NJSS, winning the first two legs and then the Final to become the NJ State Champion for 2-year-old colt pacers.  He won the Metro Elim., finishing second in the final.  He comes from a long line of Champions including Adios winner, Vintage Master, Great Vintage and Silk Stockings.  Nancy Johansson trained Western Vintage throughout his racing career, she states, "Western Vintage is a charismatic and a naturally great gaited individual.  His quick turn of speed, good confirmation, determination and athleticism make him an obvious choice as a sire."  Driver Yannick Gingras concurs, "Western Vintage is a great gaited horse with very good manners and an incredible turn of speed."
  • Sire of Western Vintage, Western Ideal, continues to be very current through his progeny such as, son Artspeak, 3, 1:47.4m.  Communicators Hall of Fame Inductee, Dean Hoffman, said "Western Vintage was a brilliant 2-year-old. When a colt wins his first two career starts in 1:52.4 and 1:52.1, you know he's something special. He won at the Meadowlands, Mohawk, and The Red Mile. To me he was the best 2-year-old pacer of 2013 and I voted for him as the champion. He has a very contemporary pedigree with a deep maternal family. With his early speed, I don't see how he can fail to sire stakes winners."

From small crops, WESTERN VINTAGE has had Ohio Sires Stakes winners, Ohio Sires Stakes Finalists, Breeders Championship competitors.
