Checks Return – Sold

“Checks Return” is our second colt by AD Collect the Check, out of our great old Hollywood Return daughter – Astras Return. See Broodmare page for her pedigree and Performance history 

“Checks Return” has a huge, powerful hindquarter with a nice sloping shoulder and a good length of rein, making him a very well balanced gelding. He is very quiet and well mannered.

“Checks” is a full brother to “Hollywood Gold Card”, who is now in the Roping pen and doing very well. Having competed at major ATRA Jackpots including the Nathional Finals at Capella, and some of the 2012 Rodeo season, including the CRCA Finals. In 2013 he has been hitting a winning streak with several wins with Lacey-Jae aboard. Winning 2 All Girl Team Roping at the Gunnedah Tough Girl Roping, #9 Team Roping at Charters Towers and #7 Team Roping at Chinchilla.  He competed at the 2013 ATRA National Finals, and even Headed some steers there as well.

His sire, AD Collect the Check, is accomplished cutter and successful campdrafter, who was campaigned by Rick Hopkins to many wins and places in 2005. Rick is now campaigning several of his progeny. “AD She is Dun” went to the NCHA Futurity, with the High Score in the first go round, is perhaps his best performed Cutter.  Goldcard’s grandsire, Atoe was a Champion Reiner, and had many winners in this field. Broomfield Freckles Image, who has sired winners in the show, campdraft and rodeo arenas, including Freckles Little Chickasha owned and campaigned by Amanda Watson, was by the immortal Mr Freckles Boy. 

His dam, Astras Return, is an own daughter of Hollywood Return, whose list of progeny and their achievements go on and on. Astra has produced winners at Roping, barrel race, campdrafting and polocross, with several youngsters still to make their mark.

He is bred to excel in Cutting, Drafting, Roping, Barrel Racing, Reining but he is also pretty enough to put in the show ring.  He is broken in and going well, he has had several months of mustering and general riding, he is started on basic barrel patterning, and is roping the tow dummy and tracking cattle and breakaway roping. Like his siblings, he should be a very good competition horse in the future.
