Hollywood Astro Boy

“Hollywood Astro Boy” is the last foal from the grand old “Hollywood Return” daughter, “Astras Return”.  He is by “King Hollywood”, thus making him a double cross “Hollywood” as well as a great grandson of the Great “Hill King Pistol”.  He is a lovely quiet boy, with a good attitude, and free moving, willing disposition.  He is athletic with speed as well.  He is broken in and going nicely.  Started on basic educational patterns and is settling well.   Having had two months work at a feedlot, he is now ready to go on with all his roping training. He has now started some basic roping training, tracking calves/steers, towing a tyre, and dummy roping.  He is very accepting of the rope and keen to track his cattle, and has plenty of stop.

“Astras Return” has produced numerous winners in several fields. Campdraft winners in “Coolabah Harlequin” owned by Rob Tunny and campaigned by Danny Richards, and  “Hollywood Gunnadoo”[who incidentally was a good barrel and rope horse as well].  “Hollywood Goldrush” Breakaway Roping and Barrel Race winner, owned and campaigned by Rebecca Tozer.  “Sam’s Hollywood” owned and campaigned by Jamie Graham, Roping winner in the NT.  “Hollywood Goldcard” owned and campaigned by the Mayer family, winner on both sides of the box – both Heading and Heeling. “Chex Return” has recently gone to the competitive home of the Bright Family, Gympie, where he has started his Barrel Racing and Roping career,[and maybe a bit of campdrafting if Tony can steal him from time to time!!] Chex is now stepping up to the plate with his barrel racing and is winning and placing in Junior 1st Division, with times that would place in the open 1st Division.

We have retained her last filly – “Hollywood Mae West”, a beautiful buckskin filly, also by “King Hollywood”, to campaign and then breed from.  Had “Astro Boy” been a filly, we would have retained her as well.  “Astras Return” has been a great producing broodmare, and retaining her blood is important.  “Mae West” is an exceptional nature, accepting everything that is asked of her and trying her best at all times. “Just a little bit like her dad!!” you might say.  Being a ‘double cross’ “Hollywood”, she is a valuable broodmare.

“King Hollywood” has a nature that is second to none, being hauled with mares and competed on with success in both Breakaway Roping and Barrel Racing.  He has not been campaigned over the last two years due to work commitments, however his only outing in 2014 saw him get 3rd Quarter Horse Stallion at Halter, 2nd All Breeds Working Stallion, 3rd Open Reining, proving that he has the ability to put his himself to many different disciplines. Not a bad effort for being pulled out of the paddock a week before! This is not surprising knowing his breeding!

With all of this said, it is safe to say that “Astro Boy” will excel in almost anything that you want to do with him.  He has a good mind and athletic ability and a great nature like his full sister.  He looks good under saddle and would suit Roping and Barrel Racing [I think thats a given] but would Rein, Cut, Draft and Challenge.
