Trainer Bob McIntosh confirmed with Trot Insider this afternoon that the trotter will stand stud in 2007 at Walnut Hall, although no further details have been confirmed at this time.

"He was having trouble standing up to the hot weather in the summers," McIntosh said of the decision to retire the five-year-old horse. "Over the years he's always been a very sound horse, but he almost died as a three-year-old and he had poor health last year.

"I think the health issues and surgeries he's had have held him back."

McIntosh said that he felt a trip to the Delaware County Fair would give the horse a chance to prove himself, and he was right.

On Sept. 21, Cash Hall and his regular driver, John Campbell, broke a 12-year-old record set by Pine Chip with a 1:51.1 mile, setting a new World Record for a trotter on a half-mile track.

"I gave him a rest in the summer and he came back great this fall, and I was thinking of his stud career," McIntosh said of the move to time trial Cash Hall. "I looked up the World Record and I had trialled him in 1:53.4 last year so I wanted to try for it."

A son of Self Possessed-Chatty Hanover, Cash Hall retires with 11 career wins and $622,803 in career earnings for McIntosh and co-owners CSX Stables of Liberty Centre, Ohio, Michael Kohler of Sterling Heights, Michigan, and Cash Hall Stable of Lexington, Kentucky.
