DAM: Tribeca Tucker by Lenas Wright On
CFR Arete Gun—a son of $9 million sire Gonnatrashya and out of a daughter of Tribeca Tucker—has proven his mettle as a rope horse. With success at the AQHA World Show in the tie-down and heeling with Cody McCartney, Jared Crain and Steve Orth, as well as wins at the Royal Crown and Red Bud Classic with Dakota Kirkenschlager, the 2016 stallion has surpassed $60,000 in lifetime earnings so far.
With his first foal crop hitting the ground in 2024, “Arete” is still competing and having success with riders of all levels—a trait that owners Jared Crain, Buddy Wacaser and Jack Bogart all hope is passed down to his progeny. Coming from a reining background, the stallion has proven to be versatile and steady, yet user-friendly.
“I got to take him home this summer and, once he got done breeding, I took him to jackpots myself as an amateur all summer and just had a blast and won quite a bit of money, “ Crain said. “Then he gets back in the hands of Cody and Dakota and is competitive as ever at the World Show. Arete is such a solid horse—goodminded but also has the athleticism to do the job in each discipline. With Arete, you’ve got it all.”
