Driftin In Hollywood

Once again, we could say that “Driftin In Hollywood” is perhaps our best mare, and she would have to go in the small group of the ‘best horses we have owned’ along with “Hollywood Lion Queen”.  In some respects she is better than “Lion Queen” because “Driftin” is, like her sire, truely versatile.  She has placed in Campdrafts [placed 3rd in her first maiden], won Barrel Races and Ropings, both Heeling and Breakaway, and won and placed at Halter and Western Pleasure/Riding and won numerous Rodeo Queen Competitions.  Most of which we would do several of those events all on the one weekend.  So she certainly has earned her Stripes!

 “Driftin In Hollywood”, like “Lion Queen” was bred specially for what we do and that is Roping and Barrel Racing.   She is out of the well-performed race mare, “Drift Again”. “Drift Again”  was purchased for her bloodlines as she is a 2/3 sister to our Champion Barrel Racer, “Sonic Power” aka “Cougar”.  Who is by the super speedster, “Sonic Jet” (sire of several Barrel racers, including Cathy Rhein’s Aust Champion, and many winners in the show ring). “Sonic Jet” a double cross of “Leo” who was possibly the most versatile of sires in the fact that he sired as many great Cutting and Reining horses as he did Sprinters. “Sonic Jet” was a granson of another great – “Sugar Bars” who, like ‘Leo”, sired many AQHA Champion Reiners and NCHA Champion Cutting horses as he did Sprint Race Champions.  However “Sonic Jet” wasn’t the only attraction in her bloodlines, she was out of a daughter of “Ima Go Man” another great speedster, however her greatest uniqueness is that she also goes back to “Driftwood”, highly sort after rodeo and barrel racers in the USA.  The great Barrel Racing Champion 2011 World Champion, “Stingrey” goes back to “Driftwood”, as well as several PRCA World Qualifying Roping horses.  “Drift Again” won several Sprint Races and even held her own against the Thoroughbreds, placing 3rd over a 1000m.

 “Driftin in Hollywood”  is by “Hollywood Showdown” [refer to Stallion page] so perhaps now, you can see why she was such a versatile and talented performer in so many events.  With such a depth of breeding, she will produce some spectacular performers, when crossed with the likes of “Phantom of the Roc” [see Stallion pg] and “Dun It Downunder”.  They will spin, turn, cut, slide and run and will be for the serious competitor.  As a breeder the depth of blood that her progeny will have will give a solid bone and body structure and cool mind for the abundance of “Smart Little Lena” and “Pepto” blood that flooding the gene pool. 

 Her first foal by “Phantom of the Roc”, is now a yearling and is showing a good, sound mind and is easy to handle and work with.  “Driftin” has just had her second foal, who is by “Dun It Downunder”.  He also is a very stunning colt, with a lovely quiet and gentle nature and very correct conformation.  See both the For Sale page and 2012 Foal Gallery, for pics and info on this gorgeous boy.  We look forward to offering more of the same quality foals as these for the decearning competitor/breeder.
