World of Trouble, a Grade 1 winner now on dirt and turf, will stand at Hill ’n’ Dale Farms alongside his sire at the conclusion of his racing career, it was announced Wednesday.

The 4-year-old son of Kantharos is undefeated in 2019, including wins in the Carter (G1) on dirt and last Saturday’s Jaipur (G1) on turf. He has won seven of his last eight races, all in stakes company, and fell only a neck short in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint to cap his sophomore campaign.

Current owners Michael Dubb, Madaket Stables and Bethlehem Stables will race the colt through 2020, after which he will be retired to stud. The owners will retain an interest in his stallion career. 

“My partners and I
are excited World Of Trouble will stand stud at such a world-class facility as Hill ‘n’ Dale,” Dubb said. “He is the fastest horse I have ever owned, by far, and we will look forward to continuing to run him in the best sprint races America has to offer. We are equally excited to support him at stud, and will start to assemble mares for the 2021 breeding season.” 

“To watch World of Trouble run is to see effortless brilliant speed on both dirt and turf at the highest levels of racing,” added John Sikura, President of Hill ‘n’ Dale. “He is
so unique as a Grade 1 winner on both surfaces and is by Kantharos who is a rising star in the sire ranks. He has Seattle Slew, Blushing Groom and In Reality in his pedigree, so his entire pedigree page is replete with quality speed.

“World of Trouble is completely correct and medium in size so he is compatible with every type of mare. Brilliant, consistent and versatile are great requisites for a new sire.”

Jason Servis, who trains World of Trouble, said he’s also looking forward to conditioning his offspring. After Belmont’s Jaipur, Servis said,
If I had a mare, I’d want to breed to him with that speed.”

BSW Bloodstock LLC represented both buyer and seller on the stallion deal.
