Moonshiner Hanover, a four-year-old son of Andover Hall who won over $420,000 at two and three, looks like he may soon be ready for big-league competition.

Moonshiner Hanover recorded a second consecutive 1:53.4 victory in the $17,000 trotting feature at Harrah’s Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon (May 10).

David Miller moved Moonshiner Hanover to the lead by the :28 quarter and never looked back from there. He posted middle splits of 57.1 and 1:24.4 en route to a four and three-quarter-length runaway victory. Trainer Chris Beaver also owns a share of the highly-promising trotter with Synerco Ventures Inc. and Bill Manes.

The top event for the ‘seasoned’ trotting set was a $14,500 contest which saw another son of Andover Hall, the gelding Ataboy Hanover, get in under the ‘nw 7 races’ AE condition and then visit Victory Lane for the third straight time after stopping the timer in a new personal best of 1:54.1. Also taking the front end after the quarter, Ataboy Hanover (like Moonshiner, a Hanover graduate) had enough late to withstand a late burst from third-in Wheelsandthelegman by a neck for driver Eric Carlson and trainer Mark Harder, the latter sharing ownership with Rick Phillips and Deena Rachel Frost.
