Overview

Chief Marty, who proved a hard hitting pacer in America, where he won 15 races, is a son of America’s No. 1 sire Western Hanover from a family that has distinguished itself for the number of top sires it has produced.

He belongs to the same tribe as the most influential sire in the world today, Artsplace.

Ladykin Hanover, the dam of Chief Marty, has been one of the gems of the American stud book. She is the dam of 13 individual winners, seven of whom took records of better than 1:57, including the world champion and Little Brown Jug winner Merger 1:53, Magic Happens 1:51 and the successful ‘Down Under’ sires The Contender 1:54 and F Troop 1:56.2.

Ladykin Hanover 1:59, was by world record holder Steady Star from the Duane Hanover mare Lady Kacne, dam of 12 winners including six in 2:00.

After quitting racing as a six-year-old, Chief Mary has stood stud in Quebec, Canada. He proved an instant success with his first racing crop producing the winners of almost $1.6million including the winners of two Sires Stakes Finals. Chief Marty was among the leading percentage sires with his first two crops and, at one stage, ranked third on the Canadian two-year-old Sires’ premiership.

 Of 244 foals of racing age, Chief Marty has 153 starters and 91 winners - an excellent strike rate. He boasts average earnings per starter of $21,707.
