Tom Hill is from a family of pacing royalty that produces blistering early speed. His sire, American Ideal is the leading active pacing sire based in the USA with 2018 earnings of $14 million (over $5 million ahead of his closest rival). Tom Hill is full brother to He’s Watching, the undefeated 2YO and fastest ever 3YO at the Meadowlands in 1.46.8.
Tom Hill carried an injury from a foal but still showed electric speed, posing quarters in 26.3 as a 2YO and 25.4 as a 3YO. He took a 3YO record of 1.50.4 after battling through traffic from post 8. Alagna Racing described him as having a huge heart and desire to win and could fly home. Perfect conformation and outstanding temperament.
