Preparations for the 2018 Fulton Family Performance Horse & Production Sale are underway for Friday, August 17, 2018 at the Cherry County Fairgrounds in Valentine, Nebraska! This year’s offering will feature some extremely special prospects that represent the best bloodlines in the industry, including these two-year old features that are sired by the +$3.5 million dollar sire, A Streak of Fling crossed on mares out of the #1 maternal sire, Dash Ta Fame. Progeny from the A Steak of Fling x Dash Ta Fame cross have earned almost $1 million in progeny earnings and are considered a “Magic Cross” according to Equi-Stat.
Fling A Penny (A Streak of Fling x Short Penny, Dash Ta Fame) — A 2016 sorrel mare that is a full sibling to the infamous, Fame Fling N Bling aka ‘Bling,’ ridden by Sarah Rose McDonald to over +$765,000 in life-time earnings!
Said McDonald in an article in WPRN (Jan. ’17), “It was so thrilling to be on her back! She got down low, kept a low head set, and left the barrel hard. When she went in the arena, she wanted to win and she hustled hard.”
Out of the dam, Short Penny (DTF), Fame Fling N Bling was sold on the Fulton sale by Western 37 Barrel Horses as a yearling and the rest is history! Fling A Penny will be the last full sibling to ‘Bling’ offered at the Fulton sale.
Streakin Kingfatima (A Streak of Fling x Queen Fa Tima, Dash Ta Fame) — This 2016 bay roan stallion is a full brother to proven performers, Streakin Queenie (LTE +$65,000 – owned by Shoppa Ranch) and Streakin Ta Corona (LTE $40,000 – owned by Corny & Maria Wiebe). This has been a top selling bloodline at the Fulton sale, and a full brother, Streakin Fame Boy, garnered $46,000 at the 2016 Triangle Horse Sale.
Ryann Pedone, trainer and rider of Streakin Queenie, says, “I love how she is her own little being at all times. She maybe weighs maybe 1000 lbs soaking wet and gives me 110% every time we head down the alley. She is one of my favorite equine athletes that I have rode to date!”
Corny and Maria Wiebe own Streakin Ta Corona and Queen Flingtima (a full sibling sold on the 2017 Fulton sale). “We like the way they are built and how athletic they are. Streakin Ta Corona is really great minded and really hugs the barrel in her turns. This cross is perfect for an amazing barrel horse.”
Streakin Silk Panties (A Streak of Fling x Famous Silk Panties, Dash Ta Fame) — A 2016 bay roan mare that is out of Famous Silk Panties, the winningest futurity mare of all time (LTE +$237,000). Famous Silk Panties is the dam of several stallions at stud, including The Kandyman (owned by Lee & Hallie Hanssen) and This Fame Is On Fire (owned by Heath Boucher).
Lisa Fulton commented, “We are extremely excited for this mare and this cross. In the right hands, she will make an excellent barrel prospect and broodmare down the road.”
These proven performance crosses and more will be an asset to anyone’s program. Visit fultonranch.com for the most up-to-date information on the upcoming sale!
