KVN Corona is one of the most performance-incentive-eligible race sires available.

The steel-grey KVN Corona is one of the most performance-incentive-eligible race sires available, combined with the standout speed that made him famous before he ever stepped into the breeding barn.

KVN Corona himself won his first nine outs on the racetrack, earning $868,077 with a speed index of 95. And he’s produced the No. 1 all-time high-selling yearling at the Heritage Place Sale at a massive $515,000.

“We raised him ourselves,” Lance Robinson, owner of the Pink Buckle and Ruby Buckle incentives, said. “He is a good-minded horse, and we’ve really been impressed with how his foals ride. We are pointing his colts toward the barrel pen and roping pen.”

With his colts eligible for the Riata Buckle, Pink Buckle, Ruby Buckle, Breeder’s Challenge and Future Fortunate (in addition to all major AQHA racing incentives), KVN Corona passes down class and speed to his colts.

“When you cross him on cow-horse mares, he’s going to give you just the right size for a horse that can excel in multiple disciplines,” Lazy E Ranch Manager Monty McNair said. “And they don’t get better-headed than this horse. He will really add some style to a mare. He’s got good withers and shoulders—something too few cow horses have anymore.”
