Pennsylvania Leaderboard: Northview Stallion Station Continues Dominance Over Stallion Owner Division

Jump Start

Though it closed its Pennsylvania branch at the close of the 2020 breeding season, Northview Stallion Station still has a massive presence in the Keystone State's breeding program through the sons and daughters of the stallions that resided there.

Through the end of September, Northview Stallion Station leads all entities by Pennsylvania stallion award earnings, with $314,838. Coming in second was WynOaks Farm at $159,062.

The owner of a Pennsylvania-based stallion at the time of a foal's conception is eligible for stallion awards generated by that foal. Stallion owners receive 10 percent of the purse earned when a registered Pennsylvania-bred and -sired runner finishes in the top three in any pari-mutuel race within the state.

Leading the way among the Northview stallions is the late Jump Start, who tallied $108,115 in stallion awards through the first nine months of 2023. Jump Start was a perennial leader among Pennsylvania stallions by award earnings for nearly a decade, giving him a deep pipeline of runners to continue earning.

His top earner of stallion awards through the first three quarters of 2023 was Hey Mamaluke, who brought in $7,350 for Northview. The 7-year-old mare has won twice in 2023, and once in Pennsylvania. After taking an allowance optional claiming race in March at Aqueduct, Hey Mamaluke has bounced between several states in the Mid-Atlantic, returning to her home state to win a rained-off-the-turf edition of the Power By Far Stakes by a head on June 26 at Parx Racing.

Hey Mamaluke races as a homebred for Joe Capriglione, and she is trained by Patricia Farro.

Northview was also helped greatly by Uncle Lino, a Grade 1-placed stakes-winning son of Uncle Mo who entered stud in 2017. His slate of Pennsylvania-sired runners have reaped $99,846 in stallion awards.

The biggest earner among them is One More Scoop, a 4-year-old gelding who has contributed $12,720 in stallion awards. One More Scoop has won four times this year, twice each at Parx Racing and Penn National.

The centerpiece of his 2023 resume is a half-length victory in the Fabulous Strike Stakes, a six-furlong race on Aug. 18 at Penn National where he sat in second, stalking the leader, before moving in the stretch and getting up in the final jumps. Kathleen Damasi trains One More Scoop for owner Shooting Star Stable.

Rounding out the trio of Northview stallions who made the top 10 by stallion award earnings was Hoppertunity, who had cashed in $58,625 through September.

The Grade 1-winning son of Any Given Saturday's top earner of stallion awards was Notice of Action, bringing in $11,880.

Owned by Andy Hawthorne and trained by Bobbi Anne Hawthorne, the 2-year-old colt is unbeaten in three starts at Parx, two of which came before the end of September. After breaking his maiden by a front-running four lengths on Aug. 21, Notice of Action made a successful jump in competition, holding on to win the 6 1/2-furlong Prince Lucky Stakes by a half-length on Sept, 23.

The final class of Northview-sired runners from the operation's former location in Peach Bottom, Pa., were born in 2021, making them 2-year-olds of 2023. While the pipeline for runners might have reached its end, the farm figures to continue having a presence at or near the top of this list as those last runners mature and continue to run and win at high levels.
