Somebeachsomewhere (foaled May 25, 2005) is a champion standardbred racehorse and equal world champion. He was sired by Mach Three, out of Wheres The Beach, a Beach Towel mare. The colt was purchased as a yearling for $40,000, and is currently owned by Schooner Stables of Truro, Nova Scotia.
Schooner Stables is pleased and proud to present this web site as a covenant and effective means of promoting and showcasing the many accomplishments of one of the greatest standardbred horses – Somebeachsomewhere (SBSW).
It is the intention of the original owners to maintain this site and constantly update it with information on SBSW’s breeding career and any other noteworthy or related stories. This web site will also be used as an important tool in the promotion and awareness of the well being of retired standardbred racehorses. This has been an initiative of the Schooner Stables during SBSW’s racing career that saw a percentage of purse earnings donated to the Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society (OSAS), an organization designed to assist in the adoption and relocation of retired and non-racing Standardbred horses in Ontario.
Through this web site, we will continue to work with and support the OSAS and others in this very important and worthy cause, and would encourage ideas and proposals from individuals and groups as to ways in which we can do so.
Please contact us with any ideas and/or proposals as to how you feel this site can be of assistance.
Somebeachsomewhere set four world records, lost only once in 21 career starts and earned more than $3.3 million over the course of his racing career. He was named Nova Scotia Newsmaker of the Year and Canadian and North American horse of the year in 2008, and is among the 2009 Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductees.
