Biography: 

A foal of 1956 by Star's Pride-Misty Hanover, Hickory Pride was a stakes winner at two and three under the tutelage of Hall of Famer Bill Haughton. Hickory Pride retired with $166,666 in earnings, which established him as one of the top trotters of that era. But his main claim to fame was at the stud. Standing at Hempt Farms in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, he sired many world champions and top stakes winners. Two of his offspring, Fresh Yankee and Keystone Pioneer, earned more than $1 million in purses. Four others, including Carlisle and Cold Comfort, won over $1/2 million. Hickory Pride died in May 1981.
