Famous Last Call

I had the pleasure of spending a couple months on barrel racing training with this six year old stallion recently. “Flit” is an intelligent fellow who tries hard to do whatever you ask. He is a well balanced, yet stocky fellow with some size who turns heads wherever he goes. Flit has a great and fun personality. For a stallion, he sure has a good attitude and can control himself well. Flit is happy to have a job and his training progressed quickly during our time together, despite not being ridden for 2.5 years and having an old hock injury. I expect to see his babies do well in the future.

Kim Gerwatoski

“ I was fortunate enough to have spent time with Famous Last Call recently and he did not disappoint! You can’t have a race car without taking it for a spin!! So I did and wowzers this horse is FAST!! His laid back demeanour and lightning speed is a great combination to have in your barrel horse prospect! I would have liked to compete on Flit but an old injury makes it too risky so I’ll arrange for one of his offspring!"

2018 NEWS



March 26, 2018 - Unfortunately last week’s Big News regarding FIREWATER FINALE turned tragic.

After having him home for only 2 nights, we found him with a broken shoulder in his box stall on Saturday morning.

After a thorough exam by Dr Lockhart of Moore Equine, it was determined there was no hope to save him. An autopsy was done on the site, confirming that we had made the right call revealing a severely displaced fracture of the humerus and no obvious muscle bruising. We feel he must have just turned wrong in his stall – no other explainable reason.
Firewater Finale
We are saddened to have lost such an outstanding stallion and to have missed the opportunity to love him too.

Our condolences go to 4 Tress Farms whom we recently purchased FIREWATER FINALE from, and to Brett Borkowski and Amy Schimke who owned him since he was 2 years old until last fall. Amy rode him to his championships and would have had a personal connection to him that we will never know. Our hearts break for you.

This award arrived last summer! Over the years, Doug & I have stood over 65 stallions!! Having a stallion station was the furthest thing from our minds when we started, but somehow in the necessity to etch a living, our business evolved.

Doug's first stallion was given to him when he was just 16 years old, a palomino son of Leo out of a daughter of Nicks Shoemaker. A stallion of this caliber definitely helped spark his need for well bred Quarter Horses.

Looking forward to receiving our 50-year award!

There were several other Sandy Ridge horses that also made us proud, one, in particular, is Docs Famous ridden by Sonya Dodginghorse, earning 4th in the Open Average out of 498 entries. This outstanding gelding previously won 2nd in the 2014 Futurity Super Stakes. Docs Famous is sired by HEZGOTTABEFAMOUS out of a daughter of DOCS PARADISE.

* ChicWe are very sad to announce the passing of Sandy Ridge Stallion Fast Moon Chic.

An own son of Marthas Six Moons, Fast Moon Chic has long stood as one of Sandy Ridge's premiere stallions. We were very sorry to lose Chic earlier this summer. His legacy lives on in the many talented offspring he has sired.

... details about Fast Moon Chic

* ParadiseIt is with sadness and honor that we announce that DOCS PARADISE was put to rest April 16th at the age of 31. He was owned by Herb and Minnie Krause who purchased him from Harry Good when he was 9.

DOCS PARADISE was a retired cutting horse and Herb felt he would cross well on his Chickle Book daughters. DOCS PARADISE quickly became the sire of 3 x Calgary Stampede $50,000 winner, Chicado Doc, CFR Rodeo Champion; 1 x Calgary Stampede $50,000 winner, Docs Leo Leo, NFR qualifier AND numerous other champion barrel and rope horses.

DOCS PARADISE joined us here at Sandy Ridge Stallion Station in 2004 where he bred several mares until retiring in the summer of 2010. It was our pleasure to be associated with this wonderful stallion.

PARADISE, your legacy will live on! We are pleased to be able to say that we have 4 of your daughters as our broodmares.
