Biography: 

A Spud Hanover-Florimel foal of 1947, Florican was owned by Arden Homestead and spent his stud career at Castleton Farm. He was a world champion and a major stakes winner at two and three, showing extreme early speed. Among Florican's offspring were such champions as 1973 Hambletonian winner Flirth, Yankee Lass, Desert Wind, Songcan and Florlis. Of his lifetime total of 519 registered foals of racing age in 1975, one-quarter were two-year-old trotting winners. Florican died at Castleton Farm in 1975.
