It is with great sadness that Hanover Shoe Farms announces that millionaire pacing mare and 2019 Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee Tricky Tooshie p,1:52.1 ($1,005,556) has died at the age of 31. Tricky Tooshie had her last foal, Techino Hanover, in 2015 and has been a beloved member of Hanover’s retired mare band since.

Born April 22,1990 in Mercier, Quebec, Tricky Tooshie was a dominant performer in Quebec Sire Stakes Action as a two and three-year-old for owner Laurent Bergevin and trainer Jean-Louis Deblois. As a four-year-old she was shipped to Ontario and for the next five seasons regularly competed against and defeated the best distaffers in that province.

Described by trainer Rick Zeron as “thriving on winning” Tricky Tooshie certainly left that in her foals and particularly in a well-known granddaughter named Lyons Sentinel. Bred by Hanover, Lyons Sentinel p,3,1:49.2 ($1,236,361) is a daughter of Captaintreacherous out of Tricky Tooshie’s daughter Tutu Hanover and was the Dan Patch Award winner as Two-Year-Old Pacing Filly Of the Year in 2019 -- the same year her illustrious grandmother was inducted into the Hall Of Fame).

“Tooshie was genuinely a favourite of mine,” says Hanover’s Executive Vice President Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky. “She had her quirks but she was tough and all business. She has passed that on to her foals and her grand-foals. Coincidentally, we just purchased her granddaughter, Trillions Hanover p,1:49.3 ($344,741), the Somebeachsomewhere sister to Lyons Sentinel and hope she will continue Tooshie’s legacy.”

Tricky Tooshie was laid to rest in the Hanover Shoe Farm Cemetery. Hanover would like to send their condolences to Tricky Tooshie’s caretaker Linda Bedard, who visited Tooshie in Hanover and clearly loved her.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Tricky Tooshie.

I used to always get a kick out of her name. Such a wonderful mare too. RIP Girl.
