Southern Sunrise Named Top 5 Stallion
Congratulations to Southern Sunrise on being named a 2016 Top 5 Stallion. This is Southern Sunrise’s second time being named an MFTHBA Top 5 Stallion; Southern Sunrise was also named a Top 5 Stallion in 2013. Southern Sunrise was bred by Larry Stevens of Marshfield, Missouri, and he is owned by 4 P’s Ranch, LLC.
Southern Sunrise’s offspring included the following notable horses in 2016: Open Amateur Senior Model Studs and Geldings World Grand Champion, Super Mario, owned by Kent Winegar of Huntsville, Utah and Open Versatility World Grand Champion, Majestic Sunrise, owned by Stephen’s Fox-Trotters LLC of Highland Utah.
The MFTHBA congratulates Southern Sunrise and 4 P’s Ranch, LLC. Thank you for your contributions to the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse breed.
More on the Stallion of the Year:
Designed to honor the stallion with the most successful offspring at MFTHBA sponsored shows, a point system was applied to pre-designated classes. All World Grand Champion classes, Spring Show Championship Classes and Three Year Old Futurity classes were included in the calculations. In 2016, 108 stallions earned points toward the award.
This week we will highlight each stallion in the Top 5 for the award leading up to the naming of the 2016 MFTHBA Stallion of the Year on Friday.
All Top 5 Stallions will be honored at the 2017 Spring Show and Futurity in June.
