Exhi won six of 16 starts during his racing career.

Grade 2 winner Exhi will relocate to Highfield Stock Farm in Okotoks, Alberta, for the 2017 breeding season, and will stand for an advertised fee of $3,000 Canadian.

The 9-year-old son of Maria’s Mon previously stood at Park Stud in Mono, Ontario, where he was advertised in 2016 for $3,500.

Exhi has sired two crops of racing age, with 10 winners and combined progeny earnings of $337,812. His leading runners include stakes winners Victory Day and Norm’s Big Bucks, as well as stakes-placed That’s a Stretch.

Exhi won six of 16 starts during his own on-track career for earnings of $807,917. He was a standout runner on Polytrack, winning the Grade 2 Lexington Stakes, the Grade 3 Ben Ali Stakes, and the non-graded Rushaway Stakes, Marine Stakes, and Victoria Park Stakes on the synthetic surface.

Bred and raced by Wertheimer and Frere, Exhi is out of the Group 2-placed stakes-winning Polish Numbers mare Soldera, whose five winners from seven foals to race include British stakes producer Alignement.

He is from the family of two-time Canadian Horse of the Year L’Enjoleur, Canadian champions La Voyageuse and Medaille d’Or, and Grade 2 winner D’Accord.
