The son of Worthy Boy and Stardrift was purchased as a yearling for $2,950. Star's Pride was first jointly owned by E. Roland Harriman and Lawrence B. Sheppard and trained by Harry Pownall. A winner of $104,969, he frequently raced with stablemate Florican. He entered stud at Hanover Shoe Farms in 1959 and Sheppard bought Harriman's share for $100,000 plus breeding rights then valued at $50,000. Star's Pride became the sire of eight Hambletonian winners: Hickory Pride, Nevele Pride, Lindy's Pride and Super Bowl, to mention a few. Star's Pride died in 1977 at Hanover Shoe Farms. At that time his offspring had won $25 million and his yearlings had sold for $9.4 million.
