Hanover Shoe Farms has announced that World Champion Andover Hall has been retired from stallion duty.

A foal of 1999, Andover Hall took his record of 1:51.3 at the age of three and earned more than $875,000. He was named the Dan Patch two-year-old Trotting Colt of the Year in 2001. A freak paddock accident caused Andover Hall to be scratched from the final of the Breeders Crown at three and he would never race again.

Standing his first season in 2003, Andover Hall made an immediate splash in the trotting stallion ranks by siring Hambletonian winner and prominent stallion Donato Hanover 3, 1:50.1 ($3,058,058), champion filly Pampered Princess 3, 1:53 ($1,740,605) and millionaire Adrian Chip 3, 1:54.2 ($1,136,910) in his very first crop. Other standouts sired by Andover Hall include Elitloppet Winner Nuncio 3, 1:50.4 ($3,627,500), Creatine 1:51.2 ($2,182,138), Magic Tonight 3, 1:52.4f ($1,362,296), Spider Blue Chip 3, 1:51.3 ($1,264,522), Cedar Dove 1:52.3 ($1,185,081) and Beatgoeson Hanover ($1,151,959).

Broodmare sire credits for Andover Hall include When Dovescry 1:50 ($1,553,124), Classic Martine 1:51.1 ($1,197,281), Archangel 1:50 ($1,141,831) and European star Propulsion 1:52.1 ($920,029).

“Andover Hall has made a tremendous impact on the sport of trotting both through his sons and daughters and his legacy will live on for years to come,” says Hanover’s Executive Vice President Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky. “He has battled arthritis in his hocks for several years now and has reached the point where it is in his best interest to retire him and let him live out his years in his paddock next to his also retired buddy Cantab Hall. It has truly been an honour and privilege to stand Andover Hall for the entirety of his 18-year stallion career”.

I remember when he was caught while running free on the 401. What a great horse and he so deserves his retirement
