In team roping and barrel racing arenas both, one stallion is making a name for himself: Born Ta Be Famous. A 2006 palomino stallion, “Famous” is sired by all-time leading barrel racing sire Dash Ta Fame and out of matriarch SX Frenchmans Vanila, the first—and only—triple crown winner in barrel racing with earnings in excess of $225,000 and progeny earnings of more than $240,000.

Famous offers proven bloodlines that are successful when crossed on daughters of Image of Greatness, Judge Cash, Ivory James, Smart Little Lena and High Brow Cat—these offspring stand out in both barrel racing and team roping.

At nearly 15.2 hands, Famous combines size and speed. Famous has already crossed the $1 million mark in progeny earnings, a testament to his ability as a sire.

“Born Ta Be Famous’ offspring inherit his size, [which is] especially beneficial for smaller cow horses, and they possess a trainable, good-minded nature, ideal for the demands of both barrel racing and team roping,” Eric Ward said. “He produces offspring that are versatile and capable of going to any event.”
