The son of $420,903-earner Stevie Rey Von out of the Peptoboonsmal daughter Fun N Fancy Free finished third at the 2022 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity before starting his roping career, having won more than $87,000 since he began competing in July 2023. In the first week of November alone, Pride And Joyy won $56,383 between the American Quarter Horse Association World Show under Brazile and the Riata Buckle under Baker.
“Our goals with ‘Kilo’ are expansive,” Solo Select’s Melanie Smith said. “So we’re offering his breedings as ICSI only—we don’t want anything to get in the way of the success this horse deserves to have in the arena at a time when the opportunities are so abundant in the rope horse business. But we take calls every day from people wanting a chance to breed to him, so offering him as ICSI only is the way we can make it possible.”
Double-registered AQHA/APHA, Kilo will be available to ICSI to Select Genes mares, too, including Relentless Remuda mares Golde Rush (by First Down Dash) and Big Time Movie Star (Queen), who is one of the highest-earning rope horse futurity mares of all time.
“There’s no way to explain the amount of time and lessons hard learned that have gone into building a program like ours that has Kilo as one of our stallions and Glory and Queen as our flagship mares,” Brazile said. “By offering our best stallions and our best mares through Solo Select and Select Genes, we’re practically giving you the cheat code to building great horses that we wish we’d had when we started out. Our goal has always been to drive the horse industry forward, so by offering this combination of mares and stallions, we’re well on our way.”
