PERKS ROSE TOO

No picture at this time as she is at the track – hope to get her first out in the spring. I don’t believe in starting these horses too young so she did not race as a 2 year old. She is bred to be a race horse or a performance horse so we flushed an embryo last year. This mare has the sweetest disposition. She was a dream to break. She is a big bodied mare that tells you she will make a broodmare after her performance career is done. Bill Meyers purchased her full brother to consider as a young stallion to add to his program; however one of the testicles never dropped so he cut him & sold him. Here is what he had to say about the full brother: “A big, stout, heavy-boned gelding who wants to be a great horse. This colt is started on the barrels and has been headed on some. Shows lots of speed and a very nice handle. Dash For Perks, one of the all-time leading barrel sires and Disco Rose Too, an own daughter of Disco Jerry (another proven barrel sire) and going back to First Prize Rose – the dam to World Champion runner First Down Dash. There should be no gamble here!” I feel the same way about “Rose” & her offspring. The Disco Jerry daughters crossed on Dash For Perks has been a magic niche for years – no reason to second guess an option for a prospect out of her.
