Temporal Hanover to stand stud in Indiana

Temporal Hanover, the second-richest son of world champion trotting stallion Walner, will stand his debut stud season in Indiana in 2023.

There was huge interest shown across the country for the Marcus Melander-trained Grand Circuit performer. The owner of Kountry Lane Standardbreds is thrilled to confirm the near millionaire-earning colt will start the next chapter of his promising career at Premier Acres in Middlebury, Ind.

Temporal Hanover is well-placed to take advantage of the growing and lucrative Indiana Sires Stakes program and has the race credentials, pedigree, and perfectly packaged physique to immediately impact the studbook.

As the first son of boom sire Walner to assume stud duties in the United States, Temporal Hanover will be sure to attract huge interest from trotting breeders looking to upgrade their bloodlines. Walner’s impact on the studbook has been nothing short of remarkable, with his first two crops taking the trotting world by storm.

Temporal Hanover is out of the unraced Cantab Hall mare Think Twice, who is a half-sister to 2006 Horse of the Year Glidemaster 3,1:51.1 ($1,968,023) as well as stakes-winning Muscle Hill colt Canepa Hanover 3,1:51.1 ($320,239).

With a deep maternal pedigree full of champion trotters, it is little wonder Temporal Hanover was one of the best juvenile trotters in his crop that included the likes of King Of The North, Jiggy Jog S and Cool Papa Bell.

As a 2-year-old, Temporal Hanover started 12 times with five wins, the fastest a 1:53.2 victory. He won a $75,000 International Stallion Stakes division, the $48,599 Champlain Stakes, two $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes legs at The Meadowlands and his $23,700 elimination of the William Wellwood. He was second in the $200,000 NJSS final.

In 2022, Temporal Hanover had four wins, six seconds and one third in 13 starts. He was victorious in the $310,000 Zweig Memorial and the $300,000 Earle Beal Jr. Memorial. He was second in the $430,000 Kentucky Futurity, the $275,000 NJ Classic, the $240,000 NJSS final, the $125,000 Stanley Dancer, the $118,500 Bluegrass Stakes, and a $100,000 Hambletonian elimination and was third in the $1 million Hambletonian final.

Temporal Hanover’s stud fee will be $8,500. For more information. go to Premier Acres website by clicking here.
