Overview

    McWicked was a World Champion juvenile performer taking out the famed Breeders Crown Final as a 3YO, stopping the clock at 1:49.0.

    He exploded back to form as an aged horse winning the Ben Franklin elimination & Final, Breeders Crown Final, Canadian Pacing Derby Final, Dan Rooney Invitational division twice, Jim Ewart Memorial twice, Mohawk Gold Cup and the TVG Open Final.

    He won the 2018 Allerage at Lexington’s Red Mile in 1:46.2, which is the third-fastest winning race mile in history. In this race he defeated the “Wonder from Down Under” Lazarus.

    McWicked, a son of McArdle out of Western Sahara, won 40 of 110 career races and $4.93 million (AUS)  in stake money. He is the richest pacing stallion in North American harness racing history and second only to gelding Foiled Again on the all-time money list…

    McWicked descends from the famed U1 Family, a family which is littered with standardbred royalty and includes Tall Drink Hanover, Wiggle It Jiggleit, Stay Hungry, Betting Line, Artsplace, Sushi Sushi, Armbro Operative, Western Terror, Artiscape, Sabilize and Bret Hanover.


    The son of McArdle – Western Sahara sports a mark of 1:46.2, the third fastest race win time ever. He has all the make up to be a top stallion, speed at every aged he raced, Over $5 million in earnings, toughness, great confirmation and of course the pedigree to go with it. The best part about McWicked is that with him being a son of Mcardle, he will cross well with most of the best and most popular broodmare bloodlines. 


    “McWicked was one of the most intelligent horses I’ve ever sat behind. He was very smart and all business. I won 2 Breeders Crowns with McWicked. He was a game racehorse that was great gaited. McWicked has the perfect size and had everything one could ask for. He has great conformation. I will always be appreciative of how smart McWicked is. I hope his potential offspring get his intelligence.”

    -Brian Sears, Driver


    “McWicked gave it 110 percent everytime he got behind the gate. He was first over more than any horse I have ever seen and raced strong up until the end of his career at 8 years old. He was impressive on any size track and had perfect manners. McWicked had a great gait and was smart and classy. He is a big, strong horse that has a huge back end and shoulder. He has a long gait and wore no boots.”

    -Casie Coleman, Trainer
