There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man. ~ Sir Winston Churchill
Merriehill Home Stretch GCH
Tug Hill Whamunition x Futurity Chicago Whitesox
Merriehill Home Stretch is by the great Tug Hill Whammunition and out of Futurity Chicago White Sox. Whammunition is by the late, great Wham Bam Command who, in his short life, gave us Liberation Starlight, Liberation Starbright, Tug Hill Celebrity, CCR's Grand Command, and Tug Hill Whammunition to name a few.
Futurity Chicago White Sox is about as well bred as it gets. She is by the great Merriehill Chicagoan, who gave her great hocks, all the right curves, and heart that goes forever. She is out of Futurity's Nobelle Prize who is by Carlyle Command out out of the great producing Nobelle (also dam of Futurity French Command and The Noblest).
So, for those keeping score, Home Stretch is FABULOUSLY bred! In addition to his lineage, but Stretch certainly has proven himself in the performance arena. He has won the Open Park Harness World Grand Championship twice...the first time when he was 4, the Open Park Saddle Reserve World Grand Championship, and has made victory passes in Oklahoma every year except 1 since he was a 2 yr old. He has won with professionals in the open division equally as much as with amatuer riders and drivers in the tough amateur ranks. Lastly, his breeding record is building to be quite impressive. He's been bred limitedly and has produced trainable, quality and talented foals several of which have already won at the Grand National level. We think that, as far as breeding stallions go, this one should be a consideration when shopping for your mare.
