Alabar, in conjunction with Nevele R, is thrilled to have secured the lifetime Southern Hemisphere rights to the world champion Pebble Beach.
The best son of the burgeoning young sire Downbytheseaside, Pebble Beach is not only a grandson of the great Somebeachsomewhere – he’s his richest grandson.
As the influence of the Somebeachsomewhere sire-line continues to grow throughout the harness racing world, in 2022, Pebble Beach was the brightest of all the star racehorses from this game-changing sire-line.
He will now stand alongside the exciting young Captaintreacherous sire, Captain Crunch, who also represents this booming sire line.
With a remarkable record of 17 wins, eight seconds and three thirds from 29 starts, Pebble Beach was only ever out of the first three once in his career.
A precocious two-year-old, his freshman highlights were victories in an elimination of the Breeders Crown (third in the Final) and in the $250,000 Kentucky Championship Series Final (in a season’s best 1:48.4).
Then, as a three-year-old, in the words of his trainer Noel Daley, “when he was fully healthy he was just too good for them, just too much speed”.
His win in the $1 million North America Cup stamped his superiority over his peers winning by over two lengths in 1:50 flat – untouched and with the ear plugs still in.
And he dominated them again in the $911,000 Breeders Crown Final, coasting to victory by over three lengths in a career best 1:48.1.
