Myers Training Stable – Leading Breeders In The Performance Horse Industry. The home of leading barrel horse sire Frenchmans Guy, Hot Colours si 102, World Speed AA, A Smooth Guy and Cowboys Cartel si 93 once again topped the charts with their semi-annual Myers Performance Horse Prospect Sale. The sale featured 62 head of not only their own ranch-raised prospects, but a select offering from guest consignors.

Guys Best Bet, consigned by Bill and Deb Myers and sired by their senior sire Frenchmans Guy, drew considerable interest prior to the sale and left the ring after active bidding on a final bid of $56,000 by Harry LaToush from Kansas. The 2011 sorrel mare is out of Addicted To Cash, a proven producing full sister to leading sire Dash For Perks who has produced race winners of $96,000. Also foaled in 2011 was Guys Sangria, a sorrel mare again sired by Frenchmans Guy and out of the AAA and AAA Stakes Producer Hot Brandi N Wine – an earner of $14,576 on the track. Guys Sangria is a full sister to the Myers Futurity Champion Guys Champagne Girl, an arena record setter and ProRodeo money earner. Topping the bidding action at $35,000 was Copper Spring Ranch from Bozeman, Mont.

High selling 2-year-old stallion was Guys Fame, a palomino stallion sired by Frenchmans Guy and out of Disarray si 89, a daughter of Dash Ta Fame si 113. The Frenchmans Guy/Dash Ta Fame cross has proven to be stellar. Guys Fame is a full brother to the Myers 2009 High Seller, Guys Famous Girl, a two-time slot race champion, multiple futurity finalist in 2011 and the Nation's #1 Money Earning Barrel Horse of the Year – All Ages-All Divisions. He drew a final bid of $32,500 from Ed Pfaff, a buyer from Wisconsin.

This Guyz A Leader, a 2011 palomino gelding brought a bid of $26,000 from Scott Gray from Canada. By Frenchmans Guy, he is out of Bugs Special Leader si 94, a stakes placed winner on the track. One of the high sellers at the 2013 sale was a weanling filly – Flits French Blondie. Out of an own daughter of Fire Water Flit and sired by Frenchmans Guy, the well-balanced palomino filly was consigned by Linda Rittberger and attracted a bid of $33,000 from Ron Young from South Dakota. The result of a donated fee and embryo, 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Lone Tree Bible Ranch in Wyoming.
