Now gearing up for our 8th consecutive breeding year standing to the Public for 2017!!!!
First Down French – “Chopper” is a phenomenal young stallion with all of the key ingredients required to make a Super Star performer and producer. He is currently 15.1 hh, 1325# with strong bone structure, great feet & legs, extreme athleticism and a personality to die for!!! Just like his 7 Million Dollar Sire Frenchman’s Guy, this stallion was born to be a barrel horse. He has a ton of natural bend, low set head and hocks, and is catty and quick in his turns. His maternal grandsire, A Classic Dash, is a multiple world champion race horse, one of the top earning sons of First Down Dash, with race earnings of over $1.1 million and progeny earnings of over $5.8 million from only 7 crops to race. Add this amazing speed to an already impeccable pedigree, and you have yourself the perfect barrel horse sire.
**Chopper started competing in December 2008 (running as a 4 year old) and quickly headed straight for the top!!! In his first years of competition (with very limited futurity hauling) his current Life Time Earnings are well over $55,000, of which most was earned in Open 1D competition!!! At a very young age, he broke several arena records, many of which still stand today!!!! He has proven without a doubt he is an incredible athlete and stand out competitor!!!!
Chopper is now retired as a barrel horse, but he will continue to strive for amazing success as a Sire. His first babies hit the ground in 2010 and are very impressive!!! We are absolutely ecstatic to have this amazing stallion and his offspring… see website for videos!!
