Biography: 

A foal of 1941, Misty Hanover produced the 1957 Hambletonian winner Hickory Smoke and Hickory Pride, both top-notch trotting sires. Besides producing four sets of twins, Misty Hanover also foaled two other stake-winning trotters in Hickory Fire and Hickory Blaze. Owned and raced by Bowman Brown, Sr., she died at Hempt Farm in 1972.
