Mad Flatter to Diamond B Farm

Jim Lisa
Grade 3 winner Mad Flatter will spend his first season as a stallion at Diamond B Farm in Pennsylvania.

Multiple Grade 3 winner Mad Flatter will stand his inaugural season at Diamond B Farm in Mohrsville, Pa. for an advertised fee of $2,500 live foal.

The 8-year-old Flatter horse was retired in September after a five-year racing career that included eight wins in 28 starts for earnings of $354,843. He won back-to-back editions of the Grade 3 Spend A Buck Handicap at Calder in 2010 and 2011 and placed in two other Grade 3 races.

“He seemed to prefer two turns and dirt, was good enough to place in the Washington Park [Handicap] at Arlington Park on an artificial surface at 1-3/16 [miles], beaten only three-quarters of a length, and to win consecutive Grade 3 Spend A Bucks without taking a deep breath,” said Bonnie Heath, Mad Flatter’s co-owner and breeder.  “With his outstanding bone, size, conformation, and class, Mad Flatter offers breeders the speed, stamina, and versatility needed for tomorrow’s racing.  Kim and I are thrilled that he will be with Glenn and Becky Brok at Diamond B with his harem.”

Florida-bred Mad Flatter is out of the winning Honor Grades mare Miss Pangea, who has produced four winners from six to race. In addition to Mad Flatter, she is the dam of multiple stakes-placed winner Gondwanan.

Mad Flatter will be available for inspection at the Diamond B Stallions open house on February 10. For more information, call (610) 659-2415 or visit www.diamondbfarmpa.com.

“We’re taken with Mad Flatter’s size, substance, and balance,” said Glenn Brok of Diamond B Farm. “He is such an athletic individual.  In the words of the great John Nerud of Tartan Farm fame, ‘Milers make the best stallions.’  Mad Flatter was an exceptional miler, with speed.  We are excited to add such an impressive racehorse to our roster.”
