Rocs Return – Sold

“Rocs Return” is almost a carbon copy of “Rockin’ Morn”, that is because he is nearly the same bloodlines.  By “Phantom of the Roc” (see Stallion page), and out of “Hollywood Morn Rose”, who is out of “Tyrone Morn Rose” and is by “Hollywood Showdown” (see Stallion page).  So like “Rockin’ Morn”, he is bred to Barrel Race!  This colt will be a definate Stud Prospect, and with the over abundance of ‘Cutting’ bloodlines all ready in this country and being imported, he will offer a great out cross to the gene pool on offer today.

As mentioned above, his bloodlines say Barrel Race him. This is because his sire “Phantom of the Roc” was a champion barrel racer, winning the “Holy Grail” of Barrel Racing – Mt Isa. He won the All Round Cowgirl there also with a high placing in the Ladies Breakaway Roping, and went on to win numerous barrel races on the way to the Australian Champion All Round Cowgirl title in 2004.

However the other link in his pedigree is that “Phantom’s” sire “Roc O Lena”, is also the sire of “Traditional Roc”. This horse is the sire of numerous champion Barrel Racers, along with cutters too. The next interesting point in his pedigree is that “Traditional” is out of “Docs Misty Morn” – you guessed it “Morn Deck’s” dam. So this filly is bred similar to “Tradional Roc” and so has Barrel Racing in his genes all the way.

This is not to say that all of the above mentioned horses have produced numerous cutters, ropers and campdrafters, so once again, this colt is versatile enough to perform well at any event.  And of course “Morn Rose’s” sire “Hollywood Showdown”, so add that to the “Morn Deck” and “Roc O Lena” and you get a horse that has the athletic ability and mind to do it all! 

“Hollywood Morn Rose” was the first filly that “Tyrone Morn Rose” had produced, so she was retained by the stud and made her way to the broodmare band.  Her first foal, “Hollywood Cartel” has been broken in and is going well  and his full brother is set to be broken in this season.

It is definately safe to say though that “Rocs Return” is a definate Barrel Futurity prospect. These photos are taken at 3 & half months, so watch for more pics of this boy as he matures.
