Hanover Welcomes First Greenshoe Foal

Published: January 27, 2021 12:22 pm EST

Hanover Shoe Farms welcomed its first foal from the highly anticipated first crop of 2019 Dan Patch Trotter of the Year Greenshoe (3, 1:49.4, $1.353,772) early Wednesday morning (Jan. 27).

The colt is the fifth foal from the 2001 Dan Patch Three-Year-Old Trotting Filly of the Year Cedar Dove (1:52.3, $1,178,930), and thus a half-brother to 2019 Dan Patch Three-Year-Old Trotting Filly of the Year When Dovescry (1:50, $1,121,568).

"Everyone at the farm has been so looking forward to the first Greenshoes," said Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky, executive vice president of Hanover Shoe Farms. "I know for me personally that I haven’t been this excited for a stallion in quite some time, if ever. This colt looks just like him. Long legs, very athletic looking and correct, tons of personality already. I am just thrilled with him."

Hanover is expecting 29 additional foals by Greenshoe this foaling season, highlighted by the first foal from world champion and 2017 Dan Patch Horse of the Year Hannelore Hanover (1:49.2, $3,069,857).
