IN THE STUD

Harbor the Gold entered stud in 2005.

His first foals were 2-year-olds of 2008, and they collectively earned $110,181 to establish him as Oregon's leading freshman sire that year. From his first eight starters, he sired four juvenile winners, including three stakes winners. Two were honored as state champions: Washington Champion 2-Year-Old Colt/Gelding Noosa Beach ($524,472) and Oregon Champion 2-Year-Old Filly Catalina Harbor.

In 2009, he repeated his success as Oregon's leading second-crop sire, with year-end progeny earnings of $366,669. Noosa Beach won a pair of stakes races at Emerald Downs, placed in a Grade 3 stakes race in Canada and was subsequently named Washington Champion 3-Year-Old Colt/Gelding. Six starters from his second crop reached the winner's circle as 2-year-olds. Among those juveniles were the multiple stakes winners Koala Beach ($147,928) and Hollywood Harbor ($137,202), the latter of whom was named Washington Champion 2-Year-Old Colt/Gelding. He also was Oregon's leading sire of 2-year-olds in 2009.

In 2010, he achieved six stakes winners and ascended to the title of Oregon's leading overall sire with year-end progeny earnings of $651,327. Noosa Beach won five stakes races at Emerald Downs during the year, including a track record-equaling victory in the six-furlong Seattle Handicap and a dominant win in the track's $203,125 Longacres Mile Handicap (G3), and concluded the season as the 2010 Washington Horse of the Year and Champion Handicap Horse/Gelding. Also at Emerald Downs, Koala Beach added another stakes win to his portfolio and his 2-year-olds Couldabenthewhisky ($183,520) and Carrabelle Harbor ($146,237) each became multiple stakes winners. In addition, his 2-year-old filly Missisissy won a stakes race in Canada and Catalina Harbor captured a stakes race at Portland Meadows. Couldabenthewhisky was named 2010 Washington Champion 2-Year-Old Colt/Gelding.

In 2011, Noosa Beach won four additional stakes races, joining Carrabelle Harbor, Couldabenthewhisky, L G Jet, Midda's Gold Touch and Missisissy as stakes winners that year, and was subsequently named 2011 Washington Horse of the Year, Champion Handicap Horse/Gelding and Champion Sprinter. L G Jet was honored as 2011 Oregon Horse of the Year and Champion 2-Year-Old Colt/Gelding.

In 2012, his five stakes winners included 2012 Washington Champion 2-Year-Old Colt/Gelding Music of My Soul, while 2012 Washington Champion Sprinter Hollywood Harbor set a new world record for 5 1/2 furlongs: 1:00.87.

In 2013, his stakes winners have included Music of My Soul ($120,252), Del Rio Harbor ($108,293), Maddie's Gold, Jack the Pirate, Midda's Gold Touch and Noosito.

Harbor the Gold has total progeny earnings of more than $3,100,000 and average earnings per starter of more than $25,000.
