Owned by David James of James Ranch, Promise Of The Sun is a 2012 buckskin stallion by MP Jet To The Sun out of Pie Sky Promises, a proven dam with progeny earnings in excess of $479,000. Coming from a long line of winners and producers, Promise Of The Sun is continuing to carry that legacy on with his offspring.
From his first foal crop, Clay Smith rode both Apache Promise and A Magical Promise to nearly $50,000 in earnings and to the ARHFA finals with Apache Promise taking the reserve champion title in 2022 and winning the 2023 Red Bud Spectacular. Apache Promise and Smith teamed up with Sun N Sushi—also sired by Promise Of The Sun—and Cory Petska at the Riata Buckle Pro Futurity to cover both ends at the event.
“If you’re looking to breed the next generation of top rope horses, Promise Of The Sun should be at the top of every breeder’s shortlist for 2024,” James said. “Promise Of The Sun is a proven producer and we’re excited about what is yet to come.”
