Four Bonnie Bay joined the St. Clair Performance Horse breeding program 17 years ago as a stallion prospect.

“I called Craig Haythorn and told him I needed a stallion prospect,” says Mike St. Clair. “Without hesitation, Craig said, ‘I have one that fits the bill and trust me he will be an athlete.’ Four Bonnie Bay has taken us to the winner’s circle repeatedly. He is an outstanding individual and his offspring get very gentle, but have big motors, lots of try and ability.”

Four Bonnie Bay stands 15.1 and weighs 1250 lbs. With tremendous cow sense, speed, stamina, power and wonderful disposition, he has earned an impressive 555 AQHA points in all-around, barrel racing, heading, heeling, halter, pole bending, tie-down, trail and working cow horse. He has $13,842 in earnings at the AQHA World Championship Show. At the 2010 AQHA World Show, he won All-Around horse, placed third in Junior Heeling, fourth in Junior Heading, and was a contender in the Superhorse. He has three AQHA Performance Superior Awards and LTE exceeding $50,000.

Four Bonnie Bay produces big-boned, strong, running horses that have the size and substance to hold up. His progeny are smart, which makes training easy and have a natural cow sense, resulting in exceptionally competitive horses in the team roping arena.
