The Knight Shadow VS Named Top 5 Breeding Sire
The MFTHBA congratulates The Knight Shadow VS. on being named a Top 5 MFTHBA Breeding Sire. Owned by JoAnn Becker of Black, Missouri, The Knight Shadow VS is being named a Top 5 Breeding Sire for the second time. Bred by JoAnn Becker of Black, Missouri, The Knight Shadow VS won Reserve World Grand Champion Junior Model Stallion as a three year old. The Knight Shadow VS was sired by Zane’s Knight Rider S. and out of Yankee’s Royal Duchess E. (by Yankee’s Mean Machine).
The MFTHBA thanks JoAnn Becker for her contributions to the future generations of Missouri Fox Trotters through her stallion The Knight Shadow VS. Mrs. Becker and The Knight Shadow VS. 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.
