|All Speed Hanover won his division of the 2009 Bluegrass Stakes at The Red Mile in 1:50.3.|
His service fee will be $2,500.
A foal of 2007, the son of Cam's Card Shark-Allamerican Cool raced against and beat the best colts of his age as a 2- and 3-year-old.
He won five of his seven starts as a 2-year-old, bankrolled $486,950 and took a mark of 1:50.3 at Lexington in the $139,800 Bluegrass Stakes and $119,300 International Stallion Stakes.
Undoubtedly the highlight of his juvenile career was his win in the $700,000 final of the Breeders Crown at Woodbine, in which he defeated a top field including Sportswriter, Rockin Image and World Of Rocknroll.
He returned to the fray at 3, taking his mark of 1:49.4 at Mohawk Racetrack in a division of the North America Cup. He also won a heat of the New Jersey Classic at the Meadowlands and finished runner-up in the $500,000 final in 1:49.1.
A son of Bettor's Delight's sire, Cam's Card Shark, All Speed Hanover belongs to a maternal replete with 'black type' performers.
His dam, Allamerican Cool, a stakes-winning No Nukes mare, has left nine winners from nine foals with five in 1:55 and she ranks as a half-sister to the Hall of Fame mare Eternal Camnation 1:49.4 ($3.7 million).
Trilogy Lobell, the third dam of All Speed Hanover, was a half-sister to the great racehorse and sire Life Sign and a very close relative to American Ideal, a top-10 sire in North America for the past few years.
