Master Glide is on his way to New Zealand.

Master Glide is to stand at Wai-Eyre Farm in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Wai-Eyre Farm is where the illustrious Christian Cullen began his stallion career. According to the new connections, Arcadia Harness Racing Group is dedicated to creating a select band of pacing and trotting mares to produce elite racehorses to compete on the world stage.

“It was definitely a tough decision as he is such a farm favorite,” said Brittany Farms manager Art Zubrod. “We did not even have Master Glide on the market as he would have had a good home for life here at Brittany. However, it was evident from first contact that at Wai-Eyre, he would be provided the chance that he really never had here.”

From very limited opportunity, Master Glide has sired horses like Banco Solo, who was considered a bona fide Hambletonian contender heading into the 2013 season. His older horses are now proving to be rugged racehorses with several holding track records.
