Shadyshark Hanover, a 1:47 son of Cam’s Card Shark, has made a flying start with his first crop of two-year-olds in North America.

As at June 22, Shadyshark Hanover was third on the USA 2YO Sires’ list with seven inside 2:00 headed up by the 1:55 Balmoral Park winner Shady Caroline.

From 87 foals, he has already produced 35 qualifiers/starters – an amazing 40 percent winners-to-foals strike rate.

Shadyshark Hanover, who stands at Ian and Judi Slater’s Goodtime Lodge stud, near Colac in Victoria’s western district, is represented by his first Australian crop as yearlings.
