Audrey Daniel purchased JM Streakin Guy sight unseen from the ultra-handy Mattson family in South Dakota—jumping into the horse business with both feet.
Of course, Daniel was immediately attracked to JM Streakin Guy thanks to the mare power on his pedigree. JM Streakin Guy’s dam claimed her AQHA Superior in the calf roping and team roping, and she won the World Foundation Quarter Horse World Championship in the calf roping and heeling. She won the Montana Circuit Finals in the calf roping and was a multiple-time qualifier to the Badlands Circuit Finals in the calf roping.
Of course, his sire—the incomparable A Streak Of Fling—needs no introduction.
Jay Mattson had heeled and calf roped on the 14.3-hand, 1,150-pound stud, so he came to A&M Farms ready to show. Daniel paired him up with trainer Clayton Eggers, and the horse excelled.
“He’s one of those really special horses,” said Brandon Helton, who’s managing the breeding operation for Daniel. “He is really quiet, he’s got tons of run and cow, and he can really stop. We’re looking forward to breeding him to some great mares.”
Helton plans to ride the horse at the winter rodeos in Texas and show him in his last year of eligibility at the American Rope Horse Futurity Association’s World Championships.
“We really want to promote him under the bright lights, because he deserves it,” Helton said. “He’s qualified to be more than just a rope horse, but being ‘just a rope horse’ is really something. He’s got that winning attitude and winning drive. He wants to do everything you ask—he’s just incredible. He moves off your leg like a great cutting horse and can really, really work.”
