The MFTHBA congratulates Sunrise’s Golden Image on being named a Top 5 MFTHBA Stallion.  Owned by Diana Pernicka of Kirbyville, Missouri, Sunrise’s Golden Image is named a Top 5 Stallion for the first time.

Bred, owned, and shown by Larry Stevens of Marshfield, Missouri, Sunrise’s Golden Image offspring brought home several top honors in 2020. Notable offspring include the following: the Open Two Year Old World Grand Champion, Gretchen Wilson, owned by Curtice Williams III of Fair Grove, Missouri, and the Open Amateur Three Year Old Reserve World Grand Champion, Handsome Harley, owned by Jeffrey Shields and Maxcy Dimmick of Ash Grove, Missouri,

The MFTHBA congratulates Sunrise’s Golden Image and Diana Pernicka. Thank you for your contributions to the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse breed.

The Stallion of the Year Award:

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 preliminary and championship classes were included in the calculations.  In 2020, 91 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 2020 MFTHBA Stallion of the Year on Friday.

All Top 5 Stallions will be honored at the 2021 Spring Show and Futurity in June.
