An incredible athlete and a proven producer of barrel horses, this is the outcross sire for your Quarter Horse or Paint mares.
Sire of Barrel Futurity earner DJR All American Pie and of Primoris Prognatus, multiple series High Point Champion, Jackpot Barrel earner and multiple AASP&RC Finals Top Ten, and multiple final-go ranch sorting qualifier.
Gotta Be Free was pulled from the pasture as my main horse for the 2010 season with no performance training after he was taken off the race track. In that year he won Jackpot barrel money, series high point champion, and served as a rodeo queen parade horse. If he has been off for a year and you ride him he acts just as perfect as he does if you ride him every day – always consistent and reliable – which he passes on. His foals are always friendly, curious and swift learners.
Grandson of Miswaki and Show Dancer. Very well-bred, with no major line-breeding, making him an excellent choice as an outcross sire – I have had great luck on Easy Jet bred mares. Oldest foal started some entry level jumping training the end of 2015 and is scopey and fearless (same colt who barrel races and sorts) – quality breeding stock provides multi-talented progeny.
2017 Breeding Fee: $400
