Offaly, Ireland - Oakwood Stud management has announced that they have purchased the Standardbred stallion, No Pan Intended, in the United States and will stand him for the 2016 breeding season in Ireland. A selling price was not disclosed.

"We were trying buy No Pan Intended in February this past year, said Derek Delaney of Oakwood Stud, "And Brian Doyle from Brian Doyle Air Cargo, was negotiating in our behalf, but it didn't happen.

"We were looking to buy some nice stallions for our farm," Delaney added, "And we purchased Foreclosure N earlier in the year from Mark Weaver and Ron Burke. Brian is our bloodstock agent and he is always looking out for good breeding stock for Oakwood Stud as he flies all our horses and many others to the UK and Ireland from Harrisburg and all the major sales.

"Brian was approached again by Marvin Raber, handler of No Pan Intended for owner Bob Glazer from the Peter Pan Stable and he asked if we would still be interested in him.

"We got the deal done this time," Delaney explained "And we are delighted to now have two top USA stallions standing at Oakwood stud this coming year."

No Pan Intended became only the 10th horse in history to win the pacing Triple Crown back in 2003. As a three-year-old he won 17 of 21 starts with earnings of $1.46 million.

His Triple Crown victories came in the Cane Pace, Little Brown Jug and Messenger Pace. That year he also won the Breeders Crown, James B Dancer Memorial, Tattersalls Pace and the Art Rooney Pace, ending the season with a lifetime mark of 1:50.3.

As a stallion, No Pan Intended has had 550 registered foals with a remarkable 422 of those foals racing and sporting combined earnings of more than $34,000,000.

He was voted the 2003 Harness Horse of the Year by the U.S. Harness Writers' Association.

Sired by Pacific Fella from the Hall of Fame mare, Classic Wish, No Pan Intended is a brother to two other world champion million dollar plus performers, Hall of Fame inductee Bettor's Delight ($2.5m) and Roll With Joe ($1.8m).

"My brother James, who runs Oakwood Stud, says he is another top stallion for us to stand," Derek Delaney said. "The quarantine will go fast and we hope to breed at least 40 or more mares this first season in Ireland. We have not yet set a stud fee price.

"We are super excited to now have No Pan Intended and Foreclosure N standing at Oakwood Stud," Delaney said. "They will complement each other perfectly. With the Vincent Delaney Memorial, the rebirth of the Ireland Sire Stakes and the Breeders Crown UK/Ireland, there is great growth in racing opportunity and we now have two top stallions for owners to breed their mares to."
