Bucks Hancock Dude’s reputation as a sire and performer is as impressive as the gorgeous dappled buckskin himself. Joining Reliance Ranches in the fall of 2022 from Namgis Quarter Horses, Dude is a key piece of the Reliance’s strategy to grow their performance breeding program by adding a solid cross on their race bred mares.

The 2008 AQHA All Around Performance Stallion was shown in halter, tie-down roping and heeling, earning accolades in each discipline, during a four year career. He was the 2007 AQHA Reserve World Champion in Junior Tie-Down Roping, winning the NRHFA Futurity the same year.

As a sire, Dude’s progeny continue to accumulate accolades including AQHA World Show appearances across several roping disciplines and in the barrel racing pen. Perhaps the most famous thus far is Namgis D 33, “Chongo,” who helped Emily Beisel earn another Wrangler NFR berth in 2023; the duo has won seven go round at the Finals.

Dude’s foals are known for their athleticism and winning dispositions and have earnings better than $1.4 million and climbing.
