Foaled at Hanover Shoe Farms, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Tar Heel and Romola Hal, Romola Hanover was thought to have exceptional speed by Hanover's trainer John Simpson. Her racing career, however, was hampered by a curb and she subsequently became an extremely productive broodmare. Among a string of foals between 1962-1976 was Romeo Hanover, who had earnings of more than $650,000. Nine of her offspring were 2:00 horses and winners of over $2 million. Romola Hanover died in 1979 at Hanover Shoe Farms, Hanover, Pennsylvania.
