This special stallion was foaled in 1980 as part of Matlock Rose’s outstanding breeding program.

With Les Timmons riding he was the CCHA Open Reserve Champion in 1989 and the CCHA Open Champion in 1990.
Retired to stud his superior breeding is proving itself in his foals, combining conformation, intelligence and athletic ability.
