Stand Forever Passes Away at Age 22

Mar 17, 2014

It is with deep sadness that Hickory Lane announces that Stand Forever (Dragon's Lair-Niajet-Niatross) passed away at the Farm on March 15, 2014 from natural causes at the age of 22. "Stanley" as he was affectionately known to all on the Farm, was a favorite of the staff and many who came in contact with him due to his wonderful personality. A fixture at Hickory Lane since 1997, Stand Forever had a productive siring career, siring 595 offspring with 264 in 2:00, 93 in 1:55 and one in 1:50 and winners of over 18 million dollars. Among his top performers were Dream Proof, 1:48.4m ($590,976), Perfect M Forever, 1:51.3f ($581,436) and Talk Forever, 1:52.1m ($476,023) along with the 2013 Ohio Sires Stake Champion and 2 year old Ohio pacer of the year, Chance I Might. Stanley was laid to rest at Hickory Lane Farm. He will be truly missed by all of us. Rest in Peace Stanley, we will be forever grateful for you and your contributions to Hickory Lane.
