Captaintreacherous sires Rockyroad Hanover

Rockyroad Hanover is the next generation as Captaintreacherous's fastest son at 1:46.2

Rockyroad Hanover represents the dominant sire line with four of the top six sires on the 2023 2yo money list (5th November). They include sons of Sombeachsomewhere, Captaintreacherous, Huntsville, Stay Hungry and Downbytheseaside. Captaintreacherous, the sire of Rockyroad Hanover is top of that list. 

Captaintreacherous has sired 13 millionaires to date while the other three sons of Somebeachsomewhere have sired just six between them. Rockyroad Hanover represents a new era in breeding.



“Rockyroad Hanover was an imposing yearling,” says Tony Alagna. “Rocky was correct and had a great presence about him. He checked all the boxes and was a spitting image of Captaintreacherous with a perfect body type and athleticism to burn.

They included Tattoo Artist ($3,214,408), This Is The Plan ($3,193,821), Catch The Fire ($1,525,829) and Abuckabett Hanover ($1,244,433).

Rockyroad Hanover's 4YO season was an amazing journey that was unfortunately overshadowed by the greatness of Bulldog Hanover. Overcoming difficult posts and rough trips to put up arguably some of the greatest efforts a horse can make when finishing second to a generational champion.
