The management of Hanover Shoe Farms is delighted to announce that the farm has recently purchased eight of the top matrons in the business. The elite group consists of four trotting broodmares and four pacing broodmares.

“It is highly unusual for mares of this calibre to be offered for sale,” said Hanover Shoe Farms Executive Vice President Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky. “Russell and I are ecstatic to add these eight phenomenal mares to the greatest broodmare band in the business. We cannot wait to sell their foals in 2020 and beyond.”

The trotting mares are comprised of:

Passageway (Angus Hall – Glide Path) – Already the dam of the co-fastest two-year-old trotter of 2018 Dont Letem 2, 1:51.4, Passageway was sold with her 2019 Father Patrick filly by her side and will be bred back to Father Patrick in 2019.

Possess The Magic (Self Possessed – Chorine Hanover) – A million-dollar winner herself and the dam of the very good Master Of Law, Possess The Magic has been bred to Muscle Mass in 2019.

Secret Magic (Cantab Hall – Chorine Hanover) – From three foals of racing age the dam of In Secret 1:52.3f ($683,757) and the 2018 Hambletonian Oaks winner Manchego 3,1:50 ($1,537,942). Secret Magic is in foal to Muscle Hill, carrying a full brother or sister to Manchego, and will be bred back to Muscle Hill in 2019.

Spring Gala (Self Possessed – Gala Dream) – a three-quarter sister to Father Patrick and the only filly thus far from Hall of Fame broodmare Gala Dream. Spring Gala has been bred to Muscle Hill in 2019.

The pacing mares are as follows:

American Jewel (American Ideal – Trim Hanover) – World champion with a record of 1:48.2 as a three-year-old and career earnings of $1,840,565, American Jewel was the O’Brien Award winning two-year-old pacing filly of the year and the Dan Patch and O’Brien three-year-old pacing filly of the year. She has been bred to the great Captaintreacherous in 2019.

Perfect Touch (Camluck – Sounds Perfect) – Dam of the sensationally fast American History p,3 1:47. She has been bred to American Ideal in 2019, the resulting foal thus being a full brother or sister to American History.
