Southern Sunrise’s Romeo Named Top 5 Breeding Sire
The MFTHBA congratulates Southern Sunrise’s Romeo on being named a Top 5 MFTHBA Breeding Sire. Owned by Andrew Hendrix of Marshall, Arkansas, and Jenalee Stevens of Marshfield, Missouri, Southern Sunrise’s Romeo is being named a Top 5 Breeding Sire for the first time. Bred by Donald Jarrett of Iberia, Missouri, Southern Sunrise’s Romeo won the Amateur Owned 5 Years & Older World Grand Championship in 2009. Southern Sunrise’s Romeo was sired by Southern Sunrise and out of Cassey’s Golden Touch J. (by Missouri’s Cassey Jones).
The MFTHBA thanks Andrew Hendrix and Jenalee Stevens for their contributions to the future generations of Missouri Fox Trotters through their stallion Southern Sunrise’s Romeo. They will be formally recognized for this accomplishment at the 2021 Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity.
The Breeding Sire of the Year award was established by the MFTHBA Membership Committee to recognize stallions providing a significant impact on the continuation of the breed. In addition, the award was designed to encourage foal registration in a timely manner, something that helps the MFTHBA in its task to preserve the registry of the breed.
The criteria for the award are simple:
- All stallions who submit an on-time stallion breeding report are eligible.
- The 2020 Top 5 list represents the stallions with the most foals born in 2020 and registered with the MFTHBA by December 31, 2020.
