Pan and Shorty

Are You Pan Enough a handsome red bay gelding, and son of Artsplace, came first to us in 2004. Are You Pan Enough was king of the half-mile track. He won nearly fifty races in his career, missing the mark by two at forty-eight wins. Dave called Are You Pan Enough “one awesome little guy.”  His dam was Camterri, daughter of Cam Fella.

Where Pan the handsome, rich-red bay was smart, with an athletic superiority and an air of entitlement, Shorty Bones was a dark bay, easygoing prankster of a horse. Any horseman coming through the barn would have noticed Shorty second. He came to us as a five-year-old. The horse was a descendant of the pacing machine Cam Fella through his sire, Cams Card Shark. Shorty Bones had the biggest heart of any horse and answered the bell for every single race. In 2006, Shorty Bones marked the one-hundredth win in the Phil Coleman Stable. The gelding won 50 percent of his starts for Dave and Phil. With his will to win at all costs, Shorty raced on the circuit for five years, his final two years with Dave as owner.

In 2014, Are You Pan Enough and Shorty Bones returned to Hillsborough Stables after some years in Sarnia. The geldings now share a paddock where they keep a close eye on the comings and goings at the farm.
