Champion son of the late Somebeachsomewhere. 

In a breath-taking career Downbytheseaside, is the equal fastest 2-year-old in history pacing 1.49! In his freshman year he also paced a ‘World Record’ 1.50 on a half-mile track. As a 2-year-old he banked over $577,000 in purses and recorded eight wins.

As a 3-year-old Downbytheseaside won a staggering $1.6 million in stakes. In a crop of great horses among them Huntsville and Fear The Dragon, he was named the 2017 Dan Patch 3YO Pacing Colt of the Year.

We are genuinely excited to our offer fresh chilled semen to Southern Hemisphere breeders from a champion son of Somebeachsomewhere.

From a Woodlands Stud perspective Downbytheseaside ticks all the boxes. We expect him to be very popular with breeders, with his exceptional looks, staggering juvenile speed, terrific gait, talent and pedigree. Most importantly he will cross with many mares, especially daughters of Bettor’s Delight.

He served a quality book of over 100 mares in the 2018/19 season and we are excited to see the first of his foals arrive later this year.
