Giant Victory, the winner of the 1991 Hambletonian, died Wednesday in his paddock at Hanover Shoe Farms. He was 25.

Giant Victory also won the Breeders Crown as a 3-year-old and was selected Trotter of the Year. He served stallion duties at Hanover Shoe Farms starting in 1992 and was exported to Marco Folli's stallion station in Italy in 1997. After 12 seasons in Italy, he returned to Hanover Shoe Farms.

Bred by Stoner Creek Stud, Giant Victory was born in Paris, Ky., and owned by Ted Gewertz and Hanover Shoe Farms.

His progeny collectively won $9,967,356, with top performer Victory Margin ($623,329).

Russell Williams, chairman of Hanover Shoe Farms, says his ''special talent has been to bring out the best in every human being he's ever been associated with.''
