« Return to News
A quick look at the 2-year-old resume of Elver Hanover shows why he was named the 2019 Ohio 2-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year.
Elver Hanover, a son of Yankee Cruiser-Ezra Hanover by The Panderosa, won all nine of his starts for trainer Ron Burke, his stable and ownership group of Dr. Bridgette Jablonsky, Jason Melillo and J&T Silva -Purnel & Libby, earning $363,450.
A world champion by way of winning the first division of the $324,800 Bluegrass 2-Year-Old Colt Pace at Lexington in 1:48.3, Elver Hanover also won the Ohio Triple Crown which consists of the Ohio Sires Stakes final, the Ohio Breeder’s Championship and the Ohio State Fair Stakes.
Bred at Hanover Shoe Farms, Elver Hanover’s Ohio earnings ($288,600) was almost double of the next closest colt.
Chris Page drove Elver Hanover to eight of the nine victories and says the colt just knows how to win.
“Elver Hanover is a true professional," said Page. "He drives perfect and does everything you want."
Page says Elver Hanover is one of the best 2 year olds he has ever driven. (OHHA)
