Artiscape is another Brittany Farms-bred World Champion racehorse who has gone on to further acclaim as a sire of a "Horse of the Year" and several World Champions. He is a son of Brittany's Hall of Fame racehorse and sire Artsplace and from champion Delinquent Account, truly deserving to be labeled as one of the sport's greatest dams of all time. Artiscape is the first Standardbred from a millionaire sire and dam, who went on to become a millionaire himself.

Although lightly raced at 2, with a campaign that didn't get underway until September, he won 6 of 8 starts and followed his win in Grand Circuit action at The Red Mile with a victory over the best in his class in the Breeders Crown.

He made (and won!) most all the "big dances" as a 3-year-old, with a slate of 13-2-2 in 18 starts. He won numerous major stakes, including a stakes record victory in the Provincial Cup and his second Breeders Crown, which led to him being voted the 2008 Pacing Champion among 3-year-old colts.

Now standing at Winbak Farm in New York, Artiscape has produced eight millionaires and the overall winners of more than $103-million. He is the sire of "Horse of the Year" Rainbow Blue, two-time Breeders Crown Champion Shelliscape, and Yankee Cruiser—he the sire of $3.4-million winner and World Champion Sweet Lou.
