A son on Hall Of Fame immortal.
Bred by Hanover Shoe Farms of Hanover, Pennsylvania, 2005 Horse of the Year and world champion pacer Rocknroll Hanover was foaled on April 2, 2002. He was sold to Jeffrey S. Snyder of New York, New York for $190,000 at the Standardbred Horse Sales Company’s Yearling Sale in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on November 3, 2003. Trained by Brett Pelling and driven by Brian Sears, Rocknroll Hanover raced in 2004 and 2005, and accumulated a lifetime record of 26-15-5-5. At the time of his retirement, Rocknroll Hanover was the fastest two-year-old Standardbred in history, the 3rd leading single-season money winning Standardbred of all time (currently 6th) and the 11th leading all-time money winning pacer.
In September 2004, two-year-old Rocknroll Hanover brought a modest record of 4-1-0-2 and 31-1 odds to the $1.2 million (Canadian) Metro Stakes final at Woodbine, and left with $466,543 (U.S.) and the distinction of being the first two-year-old in Standardbred history to have broken the 1:50 mark (1:49.4s). One week later Rocknroll Hanover finished in a dead heat in the Champlain Stakes, and completed his season with a record of 8-3-1-3 and total earnings of $530,781.
Rocknroll Hanover never finished off the board during his 2005 sophomore campaign, winning 12 of 18 and garnering $2,223,257 in earnings. His richest victories included the New Jersey Classic, North America Cup ($1.5 million Canadian), Meadowlands Pace (in record time), Simcoe Stakes, Bluegrass, Tattersalls Pace, James B. Dancer Memorial and Breeders Crown. Rocknroll Hanover‘s Meadowlands Pace victory made him the first Standardbred horse in history to win three million-dollar races (U.S. or Canada).
Rocknroll Hanover was a shuttle stallion with total North American foal earnings of over $31 million. He sired three millionaires: 2010 Little Brown Jug winner and Horse of the Year Rock N Roll Heaven p,3,1:47.3 ($2,748,818), 2009 She’s A Great Lady and 2010 Breeders Crown winner Put On A Show p,3,1:49.4 ($2,008,132) and Ticket To Rock p,4,1:50.3f ($1,003,203), winner of the 2010 Bluegrass and Glen Garnsey Memorial.

Rock N Roll World By ROCKNROLL HANOVER is a son of the champion Artsplace race mare and USA 2YO and 3YO Filly of the Year Worldly Beauty 1:49.6 ($1,900,255), a full sister to the dam of champion colt pacer
and leading American sire Captaintreacherous 1:47.2 ($3,148,657). Plus she carries the same full blood as Art Major.
ROCK N ROLL WORLD belongs to the same U7- Miss Duvall family that dominates the Hall Of Fame list above, which is noted for the number of successful sires it has produced such stars as Art Major, American Ideal Captaintreacherous, Perfect Art, Real Artist and Western Ideal.
ROCK N ROLL WORLD displayed brilliant speed and stamina, winning on half-mile, five-eighths and mile tracks in Stakes and Invitational company from two to five years.
In all, ROCK N ROLL WORLD won 18 races with 27 placings for $712,737 in stakes.
A bay horse, foaled in 2012, 15.3 hands and a stunning individual, ROCK N ROLL WORLD represents GREAT value for your broodmare.
What’s really intriguing and exciting about this stallions profile is that there is clear signs that breeders with broodmares on the Adios, Direct Scooter and Meadow Skipper sire line should have a very serious look at this astonishing stallion prospect from the leading U7- Miss Duvall Family.
Fresh semen from commercial stallion prospects who come from elite families are almost impossible to fine in this country at present and don’t be surprised if this young gun (his semen is available 7 days a week ) doesn’t book out very soon. Contact Mick Holtham on 0421 331 586 to secure your chance to breed the sports next champion.
