Nichols, NY --- Millionaire trotter Syrinx Hanover died at Rhineback Equine Clinic on Friday, April 23, after she had suffered a serious case of dystocia on Thursday night.

The daughter of Lindy Lane-Minx Hanover had a spectacular career on the racetrack, winning 19 of 21 starts and never being worse than second for the Need To Know Stables LLC of New Jersey. Syrinx Hanover earned just shy of $1.7 million lifetime and took home many of the top trotting events including two Breeders Crown championships, the Hambletonian Oaks and The Matron Stakes in her final career start at Dover Downs. She won back-to-back Dan Patch Awards as the top filly in her class as a freshman in 2000 and a sophomore in 2001.

Syrinx Hanover had five foals during her broodmare career. The first three have taken winning records, including Syrinxian, who was a stakes winner at age two in 2008. She has a yearling filly by Yankee Glide that will be sold this fall.

Syrinx Hanover was purchased by Little E LLC in September 2005 and spent her final years at Allerage Farm in Stanfordville, N.Y. 

The loss of Syrinx Hanover comes almost a year after Allerage Farms lost the broodmare Chilli Bowl to old age.
