Sunrise’s Golden Image named Top 5 Breeding Sire

Sunrise’s Golden Image is owned by Diana Pernicka of Rogersville, Missouri

The MFTHBA congratulates Sunrise’s Golden Image on being named a Top 5 MFTHBA Breeding sire.  Owned by Diana Pernicka of Rogersville, Missouri, Sunrise’s Golden Image is named a Top 5 Breeding Sire for the fourth straight year.  Bred by Larry Stevens of Marshfield, Missouri, Mrs. Pernicka has owned Sunrise’s Golden Image since 2019.  Sunrise’s Golden Image was sired by Southern Sunrise and out of Traveler’s Sweet Magnolia F.D.S (by Missouri Traveler E).

The MFTHBA thanks Diana Pernicka for her contributions to the future generations of Missouri Fox Trotters through their stallion, Sunrise’s Golden Image.  Sunrise’s Golden Image and Mrs. Pernicka will be formally recognized for this accomplishment at the 2020 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 to 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 2019 Top Breeding Sires represents the stallions with the most foals born in 2019 and registered with the MFTHBA by December 31, 2019.
