Combining legendary bloodlines – already proven on the racetrack and in the performance and rodeo arenas – and adding years of building strong reputations led up to one of the top Quarter Horse Arena Prospect sales in the Nation for 2017. Combining forces, the third Annual Myers Ranch/Copper Spring Ranch Performance Horse Sale was presented on Saturday, Aug. 26 at the CSR Arena in Bozeman, Montana.

Copper Spring Ranch, a state-of-the-art facility located on the south edge of Bozeman, is owned by Karen Gilhousen and presented a strong offering of two-year-olds in 2017 along with two yearling stallions. Managers Brian and Lisa Anderson oversee the daily ranch operations along with Dr. Chris Ray who operates his Ray Equine Service at CSR situated on site at the ranch.

The ranch stands Prime Talent SI 107, one of the fastest son's of World Champion Sire Corona Cartel SI 97. A Stakes Winner of $101,614, he is the sire of multiple AAAT runners with Speed Indexes of 100-121, Progeny Earnings of $1.6+ Million and now also producing winners in the Barrel Racing pen.

Copper Spring Ranch recently added the proven sire Furyofthewind SI 96 to their stallion battery. With LTE of $70,554, he has Progeny Earnings of $5.8 Million as well as siring a BFA Year-End Futurity Champion and 2017 Old Fort Day Super Derby Finalist. New to their program in 2017 is the gray stallion Firewater Canyon. Sired by World Champion Producer and NFR Qualifier sire Fire Water Flit, he is out of the Multiple NFR Go-Round Winner and Barrel Futurity and Derby Champion Mulberry Canyon Moon with $400,000+ in Rodeo & EquiStat Earnings.

That proven reputation, tacked on to many years of selective breeding, set the stage as the nation's number one two-year-old program, Myers Performance Horses, offered another outstanding group of arena prospects in 2017. Owned by Bill and Deb Myers and their sons Chad, Billy, Brandon and Brady, their breeding and training operation is situated in a picturesque area of the Black Hills between Spearfish and St. Onge, South Dakota. They are home to leading sire Frenchmans Guy, the still vibrant 30-year-old sire of earners now exceeding the $11 million mark. He is joined in the breeding shed by a proven son, A Smooth Guy, and Cowboys Cartel, a AAA runner sired by Corona Cartel SI 97. Young stallions currently being introduced into their program include three Frenchmans Guy sons – Ima Special Kindaguy, This Guyz A Keeper and Mr Sassy Frenchman. They are excited to now be adding the 2015 buckskin stallion Lucky Wonder Horse as a strong outcross on their program mares. A son of First Down Dash SI 105, he is out of 2017 Barrel Racing Money Earner Rosas Cantina CC. The buckskin daughter of Corona Cartel SI 97, currently being campaigned by Lisa Lockhart, has Lifetime Earnings of $35,000+ to date and is out of an NFR Qualifying daughter of Dash Ta Fame SI 113 with LTE of $150,000+.

In one of the last offerings of progeny sired by Frenchmans Guy, high seller honors this year were shared by Take The Fame Guyz and Vision Of Guyz – both sired by him and leaving the ring at $62,000. Out of the Myers Ranch broodmare Disarray SI 89 by Dash Ta Fame SI 113, the proven cross produced the 2015 Gray Gelding Take The Fame Guyz – a full brother to the 2011 #1 Futurity Horse in the Nation Guys Famous Girl with LTE of $110,000. Strong interest prior to the sale and active bidding ended with Shelly Shields taking him home to Canada. The 2015 Buckskin Mare Visions Of Guyz left the ring on a bid from Rob Plendl from Iowa. Her dam is the mare Moon Visions SI 89 by multiple Stakes Sire Visionarian SI 94 and out of a daughter of one of the nation's top proven barrel sires Marthas Six Moons SI 99. The Myers Family shared, "We want to wish everyone who bought from us the "Very Best of Luck" with your purchases. Fifty percent of our buyers were represented as "repeat buyers" and we are honored that they continue in our program. We were also excited to see many new faces in the crowd. We greatly appreciate you all."

The Copper Spring Ranch consignments included their high seller Dash To The Lane – a 2015 Palomino Mare sired by the nation's leading barrel sire Dash Ta Fame SI 113 and out of Lanes Liberty Belle, their daughter of Lanes Leinster SI 101. She left the ring on a final bid of $39,000 from Jeff and Brenda Wills from Canada. CSR also offered the 2015 sorrel mare This Fame Is Serious and Mike Ingram from Montana had the bid at $37,000. Also sired by Dash Ta Fame SI 113, she is out of their ranch mare Betta Takeme Serious, a 1D daughter of Frenchmans Guy and a full sister to the 2009 BFA Futurity Champion Guys Cash Perks.

The high selling consignment sired by Furyofthewind SI 96 was Royale Trade, a 2015 brown mare out of Dynasty Royale by First Down Dash SI 105 and out of a daughter of Rare Form SI 120. Bidding stopped at $21,000 and she found a home with Meg and Frank Anderson from Montana.

The ranch added, "Copper Spring Ranch Owner Karen Gilhousen, Managers Brian and Lisa Anderson and the entire ranch staff would like to thank everyone who purchased our horses and attended the successful Myers Ranch/Copper Spring Ranch Performance horse sale on August 26."

Live Internet coverage of the preview and sale was handled again this year by Michael Cloward from 3-2-1 Action Video, Fort Worth, Texas.
