If you are looking for a stallion who can add size, substance, correct conformation, speed and an excellent mind to your mare’s next foal, please consider breeding to Golden Slew.

Slew arrived here in February, 2014.  He’d spent his entire stud career down south, so his good natured disposition had a lot to do with making what must have been a big transition for him.  There are a lot of outstanding things about this horse but his mind is the best trait of all.

This horse is big,  He’s 16.3 and is over 1400 pounds.  He’s got lots of foot and bone, and lots of muscle.  His feet are a #3.  Everything about him says power.

He’s also gorgeous.  Everyone who sees him comments on how well-put together he is.  Nothing is out of proportion.

Slew has been, with limited foals, a successful Thoroughbred racehorse sire.  He is listed by Bloodhorse magazine as 2015’s number #1 sire standing in Montana.  His foals have lifetime earnings over $500,000.

While we are certainly interested in breeding our area’s good Thoroughbred mares, obviously that is not our focus as a breeding program.  So why bring a 16.3 Thoroughbred stallion into a barrel horse program?

Simple.  A good horse is a good horse.  And this is a really good horse.  He’s an athlete. His conformation is outstanding.  His shoulder is as good as you’ll ever see.  His pedigree is extraordinary.  His disposition is amazing.

It’s hard not to love a really good Thoroughbred.  Good Thoroughbreds have brought important qualities to the Quarter Horse breed since the beginning.  We think Slew will make those kind of contributions to our program. We can already see a pasture full of his daughters . . . .

Golden Slew’s pedigree is remarkable from many angles.  Just his sire and his dam together won over $1.7 million on the track.  His sire’s foals have won over $84.5 million.  Seattle Slew’s stud fees ranged from $800K in his prime to $300K in his later 20’s when his health concerns represented breeding risk.  Those kind of numbers are just hard to comprehend when you have been in the QH and Paint business but we are excited to bring the blood of that class of horse to eastern Montana and to our program.

While of course Seattle Slew is famous for having won the classic distance Triple Crown races, his breeding included solid sprinter credentials and his first stakes win was in a sprint.  He also became a noted sprint sire himself.   Golden Slew has a dosage profile of:  DP = 13-1-12-2-0 (28) DI = 2.50   CD = 0.89 which indicates a solid pedigree of speed in addition to ability at longer distances.
