Feel The Sting, a byproduct of the No.1 leading barrel racing sire Dash Ta Fame and dam nine-time NFR qualifier MP Meter My Hay (Stingray), has won $138,000 in lifetime earnings and is an NFR qualifier himself. Brought into the limelight by Ryann Pedone, “Stinger” was set to storm the NFR when fate intervened—a fractured hock precluded his run in Vegas. Despite his setback, the stallion made a comeback to end up in the hands of his dam’s jockey, Sherry Cervi.

Raised by Highpoint Performance Horses, Feel The Sting was acquired by 70 Ranch Performance Horses during his comeback season. Under Sherry’s guidance, he excelled until an unfortunate knee injury led to his retirement. His progeny, however, speaks volumes of his ability as a competitor and sire—HP Feel The Fame, his first foal, clinched the 2021 Barrel Futurities of America Juvenile World Championship and now has lifetime earnings near $300,000.

Being a quick and agile competitor, Stinger passes those traits down to his offspring. Standing 15 hands tall, stout, and conformationally correct, Stinger has all the attributes of a standout team roping sire, with his offspring being able to be successful in barrel racing or as a head or heel horse.
