Honorable Dillon, winner of the 2013 G2 Hutcheson S. will stand in 2015 at Lere Visagie's Rockridge Farm in Hudson, New York.  Honorable Dillon raced in the colors of New Yorker Joe Bucci and is a Grade 2 winning son of Tapit.  "We are excited to stand such a high caliber race horse and the son of North America's #1 stallion, Tapit, at our farm in NY.  Honorable Dillon very closely resembles his sire in almost every way and we believe that he gives NY breeders every reason to stay in NY and breed into the most prolific sire line in the U.S.," says Visagie.

Mersad Metanovic Bloodstock who brokered the deal between his European clients and Rockridge Farm said, "Honorable Dillon is an absolutely beautiful horse and breeders that come to see him will certainly want to breed to him.  The owners are putting their money where their mouth is and are announcing two ground-breaking incentive programs for NY breeders."  The first, known as the "Real Award" program, passes on 100% of the NY Stallion Awards earned to the breeders if their mare is booked to Honorable Dillon prior to Jan. 1, 2015 for the 2015 breeding season. The second, "Real Profit" program, guarantees breeders $20k-$30k for healthy weanlings they breed from graded stakes-winning or producing mares.  "Both of these programs provide NY breeders with REAL money if they breed proper babies," Metanovic said.

Honorable Dillon will stand for $5,000 live foal, payable stands & nurses.
