Champion Racehorse and Sire Cantab Hall Passes

It is with a heavy heart that Hanover Shoe Farms announces Cantab Hall was humanely euthanized this morning due to arthritic disabilities.
During his racing career Cantab earned honors as 2003 Dan Patch Two Year Old Trotting Colt of the Year earning $461,337 by winning 10 races in 10 starts including the Breeders Crown. https://youtu.be/ay1eqofwB24
As a three year old he earned $980,966 finishing in the top three 11 times in 13 starts, with his lifetime record of 1:54m at The Meadowlands winning his divisions of the Dickerson and Stanley Dancer. He also was victorious in the $250,000 American National https://youtu.be/oc5uqYnxv5A and Canadian Trot elimination, finishing second in the final.
As a sire Cantab Hall’s lifetime progeny earnings total $114,839,082 to date including millionaires- Father Patrick t,3,1:50.2f $2,558,133; Crystal Fashion t,4.1:50m $2,215,749; Wild Honey t,3,1:50.4m $1,589,235; Explosive Matter t,3,1:52.3m $1,510,542; Met’s Hall t,3,1:51.2m $1,295,306; Uncle Peter t,4,1:50.3f $1,290,660; Lifetime Pursuit t,3,1:50.4m $1,065,586.
As a broodmare sire, his lineage has amassed $60,887,276 to date with his daughters producing the likes of Atlanta t,6,1:49m $3,533,707; Manchego t,4,1:49m $3,144,777 (Secret Magic); Ariana G t,4,1:50.2m $2,465,459; Southwind Frank t,3,1:52.1m $1,950,887; Six Pack t,3,1:49.1m $1,939,604; Jujubee t,3,1:49.3m $1,158,294, Jiggy Jog S t,3,1:50m $1,127,793 (Hot Mess Hanover); and Temporal Hanover t,3,152.2s $972,166 (Think Twice).
Cantab Hall was a tough horse that commanded respect on the track and in the breeding shed. He was enjoying his last years in retirement at Hanover Shoe Farms in his paddock next to fellow retiree Andover Hall. He will be missed by those that worked with him.
