A magnificent dark bay individual standing 15.3 hands, TALL DARK STRANGER certainly lives up to his and is without question, one of the best-bred, best-performed stallions to ever be available in the Southern Hemisphere. Destined for greatness from birth, TALL DARK STRANGER was a $330,000 yearling purchase from the Lexington Selected Sale and was considered to be the premier pacing colt offered in 2018. His race record speaks for itself – TALL DARK STRANGER captured many of the sport’s classic and grand circuit events winning 6 consecutive races at 2 and 8 straight at 3. TALL DARK STRANGER was a true champion in every sense of the word displaying true grit, determination and heart each time he stepped onto the racetrack. He is only the second male pacer in 35 years to receive a Dan Patch Award at age 2 and return to be Horse of the Year at 3. The other was SOMEBEACHSOMEWHERE in 2008.


TALL DARK STRANGER was trained by the 2020 USA Trainer of the Year Nancy Takter. “He’s just the toughest horse ever,” Takter said. “I’m going to have to add smart to that, too, because he figured out what this is all about. He knew that he was supposed to be first and made sure that he was first. Where ‘heart of a champion’ is in the dictionary, TALL DARK STRANGER’s name and picture are right next to it.”


TALL DARK STRANGER hails from one of harness racing’s most prolific families. He is by Bettor’s Delight and his dam is the World Champion, Dan Patch & O’Brien Award winning 2YO Pacing filly of the year PRECOCIOUS BEAUTY who is a sister to SPORTSWIRTER. TALL DARK STRANGER stood his first season at stud in North America at the prestigious Hanover Shoe Farms where he received the absolute best collection of mares ever assembled for a stallion’s initial book including the 2018 3YO Pacing Filly of the Year & 2020 Pacing Mare of the Year KISSIN IN THE SAND p,3,1:47.4 ($1,741,094); the 2020 3YO Pacing Filly of the Year PARTY GIRL HILL p,1:47.2 ($880,345); World Champion and 2 & 3 Year Old Pacing Filly of the Year AMERICAN JEWEL p,3,1:48.2 ($1,840,565); World Champion, 2YO Pacing Filly and Dan Patch, Nova & O’Brien Pacing Mare of the Year MY LITTLE DRAGON p,1:48.1 ($2,318,623) and 3YO Pacing Filly of the Year and World Champion PUT ON A SHOW p,1:47.3 ($2,362,878), and dozens more too numerous to mention.

Ultimate Sniper retires as the reigning NZ Horse of the Year.

He was a four time Group 1 winner which included a dominant Inter Dominion win which saw him become the first four year old in 28 years to win a traditional series.

Unraced as a two-year-old, Ultimate Sniper quickly became a sensation as a three-year-old, being unbeaten through the Spring culminating in a dominant victory in the NZ Sires Stakes 3yo Final.

He also scored resounding victories in the Alabar Classic, NZ Yearling Sales Series Final, Northern Derby and NZ Derby on his way to being awarded NZ Three-Year-Old Pacer of the Year.

“He’s a gorgeous type and just the kindest, sweetest horse and really intelligent.”

“It didn’t matter what the tempo in the race was. He could fire a slick quarter if you wanted but really time meant nothing to him, he just did whatever he had to do so effortlessly,” said co-trainer and regular driver Natalie Rasmussen.

A powerfully built black stallion, Ultimate Sniper is a stunning type. He is also beautifully bred.

He is a full-brother to Ultimate Machete who, like his brother, was also NZ’s Three and Four-Year-Old Pacer of the Year. Their dam (Reality Check) was a smart race filly winning the NZ Yearling Sales Series Two-Year-Old Fillies’ Final. She is also the dam of the top racemare, Major Reality (1:50.9, $434,415) whose first foal sold for $300,000 at this year’s Auckland yearling sale.

His grandam is the NZ Broodmare of Excellence winner, Maureens Dream, who is a half-sister to the excellent sire Tuapeka Knight.

·         NZ Horse of the Year

·         NZ Three Year Old Pacing Male of the Year

·         Four time Group 1 winner

·         A magnificent individual from a superb family

·         The most dominant colt of his generation
