Dash For Cash and the Crossover Effect
When the words “dash” and/or “cash” come across our radar, whether it is in the race results, a pedigree, or some other print or electronic race media, it signifies an elite position in Quarter Horse racing. Dash For Cash, a two-time AQHA Racing World Champion and all-time leading sire, holds that elite position. His name runs deep in our runners today as a modern foundation sire of the racing American Quarter Horse. Dash For Cash is like many of our racing stallions in that he has had an impact as a crossover into performance events.
Dash For Cash was foaled in 1973 on the ranch of B. F. Phillips Jr. of Frisco, Texas. The Phillips Ranch of the 1950’s and 60’s had a deep history in the show horse division of the AQHA. It was at one time the home to horses like 1957 AQHA High Point Halter Stallion Steel Bars, 1964 AQHA High Point Tie-Down Roping Horse Echo Reed, 1958 AQHA High Point Halter Horse Poco Lynn, 1957 and 1958 AQHA High Point Tie-Down Roping Horse George Dun, 1959 AQHA High Point Halter Stallion Aledo Bars, and a number of AQHA Champions like LH Quarter Moon.
By the mid 1960’s, the Phillips Ranch stallion roster included Ed Echols by Zantanon, Steel Bars by Three Bars TB, Ben Bar by Steel Bars, Dividend by Depth Charge TB, Double Bid by Double Feature TB, Eternal Sun by Eternal War TB, Top Money by Top Deck TB, and a Thoroughbred named Faquir by Beau Max. This stallion roster indicates a move to the racing American Quarter Horse - with Double Bid being an AQHA Racing Champion and Dividend being a AAAT runner and top money earner. Faquir was unraced, but bred in Kentucky by the King Ranch at their Kentucky Thoroughbred racing division. The Phillips Ranch even had a race track called Phillips Downs.
The Phillips Ranch dispersed the performance horses in 1966. The dispersal was a sign that the Phillips Ranch was going to focus on breeding racehorses. This dispersal also brings us to the agreement between Phillips and Robert J. Kleberg Jr. of the King Ranch to use their speed-bred Thoroughbred mares to breed running Quarter Horses. Phillips was to select from the King Ranch speed-bred Thoroughbred mares and breed them to racing American Quarter Horse stallions.
Phillips explained in a 1983 interview why he pursued the King Ranch mares. “These mares were available because the King Ranch was concentrating on racehorses that would be competitive in classic distance races such as the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes,” he said.
Phillips stated that there were a lot of mares to choose from and that enhanced the chance of success for the breeding program. He also added that many of these mares carried the blood of Depth Charge. He explained the role of this stallion, “Depth Charge was a horse that contributed a great deal to the early running Quarter Horse. He is still a great influence in the pedigrees of the better horses of today.”
A mare named Silent Light will show us where he was coming from and her contribution to the partnership. She was sired by the Phillips Ranch stallion Dividend and out of the King Ranch mare Lantana Belle. Silent Light is listed as bred by the King Ranch Inc. and owned by the Phillips Ranch/King Ranch Partnership. She was foaled in 1967.
Silent Light made 19 starts with five wins, one second and five thirds. She earned $5,752. She was a stakes finalist in the 1969 Las Ninas Handicap at Los Alamitos Race Course. She returned to the broodmare band in the Phillips Ranch/King Ranch Partnership where she produced five foals with three starters earning $122,732, including two stakes winners and one stakes placer. Her stakes winners were Raise The Roof by Raise Your Glass TB, winner of the 1978 War Chic Handicap; and Vari Eze by Easy Jet, winner of the 1980 Runnin’ For The Green Futurity.
It was Silent Light’s stakes placed runner that proved to be her most influential foal. His name was Windy Ryon by Go Man Go. He was second in the 1977 New Mexico State Fair Handicap and a finalist in the 1975 Rainbow Futurity, 1976 Kansas Derby, 1976 C. L. Maddon’s Bright Eyes Handicap, 1976 Sunland Park Fall Derby, 1977 HQHRA Inaugural Handicap and 1977 Z. Wayne Griffin Director’s Stakes. Windy Ryon sired the winners of over $5.2 million, with his leading money winner being 1986 AQHA Champion Two Year Old and Two-Year Old Colt Ronas Ryon.
A pedigree note: Dividend was by Depth Charge, who was owned by the King Ranch and used for a time at their King Ranch Thoroughbred program in Kentucky. Lantana Belle was by Beau Max (the sire of Faquir) and she was out of Lantana Queen by Depth Charge. This gives Silent Light a breeding pattern of 2 X 3 to Depth Charge.
Some Kinda Man was the next major runner from this partnership. Foaled in 1969, he is by Go Man Go and out of Anaqua by Beau Max and she is out of Lantana Queen by Depth Charge. Anaqua was a full sister to Lantana Belle, the dam of Silent Light.
Anaqua produced nine Quarter Horse foals with five starters, one stakes winner and one stakes placed runner. The stakes winner was Some Kinda Man. His stakes wins came in the 1972 Ruidoso Derby, 1972 Three Bars Handicap and 1972 Sunland Park Fall Derby where he set a World Record for 440 yards in :21.460. Some Kinda Man sired only six foal crops that earned $2.1 million with 23 stakes winners. His leading money winner is Lotsa Soul, earner of $115,584. Some Kinda Man daughters have produced the earners of over $6.1 million with 311 ROM and 23 stakes winners. The leading money winner is Dashs Dream, a multiple AQHA Racing Champion including the 1985 AQHA Racing World Champion.
Dash For Cash was next to highlight the Phillips Ranch/King Ranch partnership. As the story goes, Phillips came back from the barn after seeing Dash For Cash and stated that he had just seen the best colt ever born on the Phillips Ranch. Dash For Cash went to training with Bubba Cascio and they found that his speed and ability were exceptional, and the call was made to not castrate him. Of course, as they say, the rest is history.
Dash For Cash made 10 starts at two, winning eight and finishing second once. He won three stakes races - the Lubbock Downs Futurity where he set a track record for 300 yards in:15.59, the Sun Country Futurity, and then the Jet Deck Handicap. He won his trial for the All American Futurity that year, qualifying for the second consolation but was scratched. His only unplaced finish came in the Sunland Park Fall Futurity with a sixth. He earned $114,340.
His three-year-old campaign started with a win in the Los Alamitos Derby that was followed by two seconds in the Rainbow Derby and All American Derby. He got back on the stakes winning track with a win in New Mexico State Fair Handicap. His crowning achievement at three was the Champion of Champions, a race he won in track record time of :21.17. He made a total of 11 starts that year with nine wins and two seconds, earning $240,597. He was named the 1976 AQHA Racing World Champion, Champion Three Year Old and Champion Three-Year-Old Colt.
Dash For Cash went four-for-four in 1977. He won his trial for the Vessels Maturity, the Vessels Maturity, the Los Alamitos Championship, and a second consecutive victory in the Champion of Champions. He was the 1997 AQHA Racing World Champion, Champion Aged Horse and Champion Aged Stallion. He won $152,750 as a part of his total earnings of $507,687 for three years while winning 21 of his 25 starts.
Dash For Cash is by Rocket Wrangler and out of Find A Buyer, a King Ranch Thoroughbred mare. Phillips found her in the third group of mares he selected for the partnership. Phillips told me what he saw in this mare and why he bred her to Rocket Wrangler. “She had all the desired characteristics you’d want in a running horse. She was a big rangy, stretchy mare that was not exceptional in her head. Rocket Wrangler was an awful nice, well balanced, small horse. He had an extremely nice head and I was just hoping they all fit together,” Phillips said of why he bred Find A Buyer to Rocket Wrangler.
Rocket Wrangler was not only a good-looking horse, but a fast racehorse with the credentials to prove it. He won 10 of 23 starts with three stakes wins, including the 1970 All American Futurity and 1970 Rainbow Futurity. His 1970 stakes places include seconds in the Goliad Futurity, All American Quarter Horse Congress Futurity, and a third in the Sunland Park Fall Futurity. He was named the 1970 AQHA Racing Champion Two-Year-Old Colt. Rocket Wrangler didn’t start in 1971, but he came back in 1972 to win the New Mexico State Fair Handicap. He also placed third in the 1972 C.L. Maddon’s Bright Eyes Handicap and was fifth in the 1972 Champion of Champions. He earned $252,167 in his career.
Rocket Wrangler is by Rocket Bar a Thoroughbred son of Three Bars. Rocket Bar was a noted sprinter who sustained a knee injury early in his career that never really left him, but he was still able to run for six years with 35 starts, 16 wins, six seconds and four thirds, earning $22,904. His stakes wins include back-to-back wins in the 1956 and 1957 Phoenix Gold Cup Handicap.
The dam of Rocket Bar is Golden Rocket, a stakes winning mare in the 1942 Washington Futurity. She made 24 starts with four firsts, two seconds and three thirds to earn $3,050. She was by Cartago by Atwell and out of Morshion by Morvich. Cartago won the 1929 Camden Stakes. Morshion was described in the July 14, 1987 Speedhorse as a mare that ran at distances of 3/4-mile to 5 1/2-furlongs who got first call and then held on for the win in a number of races. Her stakes wins came in the Consolation Claiming Stakes, Rosedale Stake and Montauk Claiming Stakes, all at the age of two. She won 16 of her 38 starts, earning $20,010.
The dam of Rocket Wrangler is Go Galla Go by Go Man Go by Top Deck. Go Galla Go had 15 wins, including the 1964 South Texas Derby, 1964 Oklahoma QH Association Derby and La Grange Downs Derby. She is the dam of 14 foals with 11 ROM and two stakes winners. Her second stakes winner was Go Galla’s Man, winner of the 1969 Georgia Championship. Her dam was La Galla Win by Direct Win TB and she is out of La Gallina V, who is by Peppy and out of Mare by Solis. The mating of Rocket Bar TB with Go Galla Go is a mating that represents the Three Bars/Go Man Go nick. This cross has produced a number of runners and producers such as Duplicate Copy, an AQHA Racing Champion by Go Man Go and out of Triple Lady by Three Bars.
Rocket Wrangler sired foals that earned over $9.4 million with 835 ROM and 56 stakes winners. His leading money earner was Dash For Cash, but his other runners included Rocket’s Magic, winner of $117,075 as a two-time stakes winner of the 1975 Old South Futurity and 1975 Florida QHA Futurity and a third in the 1975 All American Futurity.
Dash For Cash and Rocket’s Magic were both foaled in 1973. The pedigree of Magic Spots, the dam of Rocket’s Magic, is very interesting. She was sired by Uproar. Her dam was Candle Lighter by Firm Ground, a son of Middleground - the Kentucky Derby winner bred and owned by the King Ranch and sired by Bold Venture. Miss Charge was out of Lady Karo. Candle Lighter was out of Miss Charge by Depth Charge by Bold Venture. Lady Karo was out of Karokop, a mare bred by John Dial, the man who sold Chicaro to the King Ranch. Giving this pedigree a King Ranch influence. Rocket’s Magic was bred by J. R. Adams, the owner at that time of Rocket Wrangler.
Find A Buyer was the winner of one start in 14 tries. She was second twice and third three times, earning $3,145. Her pedigree gives Dash For Cash some outcross blood for the racing American Quarter Horse blood he carries through his sire. The sire of Find A Buyer is To Market, who showed his speed and ability to carry that speed beyond sprint distances. As a two year old, he won the Arlington Futurity at 7 furlongs and the Washington Park Futurity at 6 1/2 furlongs. He came back at four to win the Hawthorne Gold Cup Handicap and Massachusetts Handicap, both at a mile and quarter, as well as the San Carlos Handicap at 7 furlongs. He set track records in both the Hawthorne Gold Cup Handicap and the Massachusetts Handicap in a time of 2:01.2 for both races, and he set a track record at Santa Anita going 6 furlongs in 1:09.
To Market is by Market Wise, a multiple stakes winner of races like the Wood Memorial, Jockey Gold Cup and Suburban Handicap. He set an American record in the Jockey Gold Cup for two miles in 3:20.80, defeating Triple Crown winner Whirlaway. He was the 1943 Co-Champion Handicap Horse.
The pedigree of Market Wise gives us an indication of where the speed in Find A Buyer came from. His sire, Broker’s Tip, was the 1933 Kentucky Derby winner. His sire is Black Toney by Peter Pan by Commando by Domino. The dam of Black Toney is Belgravia by Ben Brush, giving us a cross to the nick between Domino and Ben Brush. The dam of Market Wise is On Hand by On Watch by Colin by Commando by Domino. The dam of On Hand is Kippy by Broomstick by Ben Brush, giving Market Wise a cross of Domino and Ben Brush on both sides of his pedigree and a great source of speed.
The dam of To Market is Pretty Does, a mare that went unplaced in three starts. She is a daughter of Johnstown, the winner of the 1939 Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes. He earned $169,315 while winning 14 of 21 starts. Johnstown foals earned $2.3 million. His sprint specialists include Flood Town, winner of several stakes at 5 and 6 furlongs including the National Stallion Stakes at 5 furlongs. His daughter Segula won the Coaching Club American Oaks. She is the dam of Nashua, the 1954 Champion Two-Year-Old Colt, 1955 Champion Three-Year-Old Colt and the 1955 Horse of the Year.
Johnstown is by Jamestown and out of La France by Sir Gallahad III by Teddy by Ajax. The dam of La France is Flambette by Durbar, and she is out of La Flambee by Ajax. This gives La France a breeding pattern of 3 X 3 to Ajax. Ajax is the grandsire of the sources of speed Sir Gallahad III and his full brother Bull Dog. Sir Gallahad III is the sire of Last Boat, the second dam of Top Deck.
Creese is the dam of Pretty Does. Unplaced in one start, she is the dam of Tomasello Memorial Handicap winner Salerno. Creese is by Sickle by Phalaris, and she out of Selene. The dam of Creese is Circlet by Whiskebroom by Broomstick by Ben Brush, and her dam is Coronis by Voter. Voter is the sire of Ballot, the sire of Midway, the sire of Percentage, the sire of Three Bars. The dam of Coronis is Court Dress by Disguise by Domino, giving us another shot of the Domino/Ben Brush nick in the pedigree of Find A Buyer.
Hide and Seek was an unraced mare bred on the King Ranch. She is by Alibhai, an unraced horse that became a leading sire with 54 stakes winners including 1956 Kentucky Derby winner Determine. Alibhai is by Hyperion by Gainsborough, and out of Selene. This gives Find A Buyer a breeding pattern of 5 X 4 to Selene and serves as an example of “linebreeding to a Superior Female.”
Hide And Seek is out of Scattered, a mare bought by the King Ranch. Unraced, she is by Triple Crown winner Whirlaway. He is by Blenheim II and out of Dustwhirl by Sweep. Sweep is by Ben Brush and out of Pink Domino. The dam of Scattered is Imperatrice, who is the dam of Somethingroyal who is the dam of the Triple Crown winner Secretariat. Thus, Dash For Cash comes from the female family of Secretariat.
DASH FOR CASH AND THE ARENA
Dash For Cash was bred to be a pure runner. That was the goal of B. F. Phillips Jr. and the King Ranch partnership. He rewarded with success on the track and then by becoming an all-time leading sire with his foals earning over $39 million from 1,154 starters that earned 960 ROM with 145 stakes winners. His daughters have produced earners of over $71 million with 5,153 foals and 3,631 starters that earned 2,736 ROM and 271 stakes winners.
Because of his value as a sire of racehorses, we see that Dash For Cash had a limited number of arena performers. His foals earned only 355.5 AQHA performance points with 19 performance point earners earning 11 arena ROM. This included one AQHA Champion, one AQHA Supreme Champion and one AQHA Reserve World Champion. He sired three AQHA halter point earners that earned 33 halter points with two halter ROM awards.
Gotum Gone was one of Dash For Cash’s ROM performance halter point earners with 16 points. This 1989 gelding was the AQHA Supreme Champion and AQHA Champion. He earned his ROM in racing with a 95 speed index and was a stakes finalist in the 1992 El Tesoro De Oro Derby. He earned his performance ROM with points in reining and roping. His roping points came in heading (3), heeling (5) and reining (8.5). Gotum Gone was bred by B.F. Phillips.
Gotta Good Habit is the 50th AQHA Supreme Champion. He earned his title with a racing ROM - a 91 speed index - and $23,261 in earnings. His performance points came in heading (10.5) and hunter under saddle (10.5). He earned his ROM in performance and performance halter stallions with his AQHA Championship. His dam is First Femme by First Down Dash by Dash For Cash.
Nothing But Cash was another Phillips bred Dash For Cash gelding foaled in 1979. This gelding shows the roping ability of the Dash For Cash foals. He went to the arena to earn 47 AQHA points in tie-down roping (34) and heeling (13). He was an AQHA World Show Finalist in junior tie-down roping in 1983 and in senior tie-down roping in 1984.
The legacy of Dash For Cash as a roping influence can be seen through a number of horses that have earned PRCA/AQHA Horse of the Year honors. These horses include Dockalickin, aka Thumper, the 2005 PRCA/AQHA Heading Horse of the Year. Thumper is out of Ole Lady Cash by Givemealickin by Dash For Cash. Bears Cash Partner, aka Syndicate or Cate, earned third in the PRCA/AQHA Heading Horse of the Year balloting that year. Cate is by Hard Cash Dash by Dash For Cash. Dew The Cash, aka Dew, was the 2015 PRCA/AQHA Heading Horse of the Year. Dew is by Mia Cash Too by Dash For Cash. El Tevo Cash, aka Tevo, was the 2014 PRCA/AQHA Heading Horse of the Year. Tevo is out of Have Your Cash by Cash N Balance by Dash For Cash. Have Your Cash is the dam of Megazord, the 2004 PRCA/AQHA Heading Horse of the Year.
PRCA Steer Wrestling and the American Quarter Horse are meant for each other. This event requires that burst of speed needed to win a race or, in this case, the race to the steer. Canted Plan, aka Scooter, has proven to be very successful as he was named the 2017 and 2018 PRCA/AQHA Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year. Scooter is by Up In Your Face by Dirt In Your Face by Dash For Cash. The competition that Scooter sees in the arena includes RGR Ryon, aka Maverick. Maverick is by Ralph Ryon by Ronas Ryon by Windy Ryon. Ralph Ryon is out of Fax It by Dash For Cash. Maverick was the #2 PRCA/AQHA Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year in 2018. The 2015 Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year was Kr Montana Shake Em, aka Shakem or Shake. Shake is by Royal Shake Em by Royal Quick Dash by First Down Dash by Dash For Cash. Royal Shakem is out of Shake Em Six, who is out of Shake It To Em by Dash For Cash. This gives Royal Shake Em a 3 X 3 breeding pattern to Dash For Cash.
The pedigree of the #3 PRCA/AQHA Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year in 2018 has a similar breeding pattern. Her name is Famous Hot Chick, aka Holly. Holly is by Lions Share Of Fame by Dash Ta Fame by First Down Dash by Dash For Cash. The dam of Lions Share Of Fame is On A Bunny by On A High by Dash For Cash. The dam of Holly is Hot Playboy Chick by Hot Dasher by Dash For Cash. This gives Holly a breeding pattern of 4 X 4 X 3 to Dash For Cash.
PHILLIPS RANCH AND DASH FOR CASH
B. F. Phillips Jr. never completely left the performance horse world, and cutting horses held a special interest for him. He was the 1965 and 1966 NCHA Non-Pro World Champion. Phillips Ranch was instrumental in standing such noted cutters as Doc Tari and Doc Quixote, and Phillips put together the syndicate for 1971 NCHA Futurity Champion Doc O’Lena.
Miss N Cash, by Dash For Cash, was seventh in the 1986 NCHA Open Futurity and the 1987 NCHA Open Derby Champion. The tale of how Miss N Cash came about started at the 1981 NCHA Futurity and a conversation between Phillips and noted cutting horse owner and breeder Dan Lufkin. Lufkin owned Doc N Missy, the 1981 NCHA Open Reserve World Champion. She was a daughter of Doc Bar.
Lufkin had visited the Phillips Ranch and when he saw Dash For Cash, he found a very well balanced horse - something he thought was a key to any equine’s ability to perform. Then he visited with the man at the Phillips Ranch who broke all the colts. When asked about the disposition of the Dash For Cash foals, the man responded, “There are two kind of foals and the first kind are those sired by Dash For Cash and the second are those sired by the other stallions. The Dash For Cash foals are always easy to handle and intelligent.” Lufkin wanted to breed Doc N Missy to Dash For Cash and when he told Phillips what he wanted, the response was, “You’re on!”
So Doc N Missy was bred to Dash For Cash and in 1983 she foaled Miss N Cash. After the NCHA Open Derby win, he retired with over $124,000 in earnings. Miss N Cash went on to sire of foals that earned over $4.3 million. His money winners include 1992 NCHA Open Futurity Champion Dox Miss N Reno.
Automatic Cash was the AQHA Reserve World Champion sired by Dash For Cash. He earned his Reserve Championships in 1994 in Junior Barrels and in 1995 in Senior Barrels. He earned 68 open barrel racing points for his ROM and Superior, and he earned 15.6 amateur barrel racing points for his amateur ROM.
Some other Dash For Cash barrel racers include Real Special Dash, an ROM barrel racer with 21 points and a 2002 AQHA World Show qualifier in barrels. He earned $6,857 in the Barrel Futurities of America, and was the 2000 WPRA Prairie Circuit Champion. Another, Munchin Cash, was an AQHA ROM barrel racer with 10 points.
The biggest contribution of Dash For Cash to barrel racing has come through his sons, daughters, grandsons and granddaughters. His sons include Dash For Perks, Cash Not Credit and Judge Cash - all found in the top 20 of the Equi-Stat Leading Sires of Barrel Horse Money winners. Dash For Perks has barrel racing earnings of over $3.4 million, with his leading money winner Perculatin, aka Latte, earning over $1,000,000. Latte was the 2012 PRCA/AQHA Barrel Racing Horse of the Year.
Cash Not Credit has sired barrel racing earners of over $1.6 million. His leading money winner is Dialaroosterforcash with earnings of over $142,920. He is also the sire of NFR qualifier Flitin Firin Cash ($70,648), the 2006 AQHA World Champion Junior Barrel Racing Horse and 2006 AQHA World Champion Senior Barrel Racing Horse. Judge Cash is the sire of barrel racing money earners to the tune of $1.3 million. His leading money winner is Judge Buy Cash, aka Jethro, the 2010 PRCA/AQHA Barrel Racing Horse of the Year and winner of $309,349.
The most significant contribution of Dash For Cash to barrel racing comes from his grandson Dash Ta Fame, by First Down Dash. This stakes winning horse is the #1 Equi-Stat All Time Leading Sire of Barrel Racing Money winners with nearly $22 million in earnings. One of his leading money winners is Dash Ta Diamonds, aka Arson, with earnings of $478,049.
The success of Dash Ta Fame carries down though his grandget. Cfour Tibbie Stinson is the 2016 PRCA/AQHA Barrel Horse of the Year. She is by Eddie Stinson by Dash Ta Fame. Rafter W Minnie Reba, aka Sister, is the 2017 PRCA/AQHA Barrel Horse of the Year. She is by KS Cash N Fame by Dash Ta Fame.
Dash For Cash has been important as a maternal influence through the mare side as well. Cash Perks, a full sister to Dash For Perks, was the 1986 AQHA Racing Champion Two-Year-Old Filly. She won the 1986 Golden State Futurity-G1. She is a successful producer of racehorses and barrel horses. Her barrel horses include Never Hit Seventeen, an ROM performer with 10.5 points in barrels and poles. His arena earnings stand at over $46,000 in barrels, poles and roping. Perks Of Fame, a son of Cash Perks, is an AQHA World Show qualifier and ROM performer with 12 AQHA points. Perks Of Fame is by Dash Ta Fame and this gives him a breeding pattern of 3 X 2 to Dash For Cash. Serious Spender, a daughter of Bills Ryon and Cash Perks, is the dam of 2009 BFA Barrel Futurity Champion Guys Cash Perks. Bills Ryon is by Windy Ryon, giving us another cross of Dash For Cash and Windy Ryon.
Judge Cash is the maternal grandsire of An Oakie With Cash, aka Louie, who is the barrel racing winner of The American Rodeo in 2014 and 2015. He also helped carry owner Lisa Lockhart to two Average Championships at the National Finals Rodeo. Dash Ta Fame is the broodmare sire of KN Fabs Gift of Fame, aka J Lo, the 2018 PRCA/AQHA Reserve Barrel Horse of the Year. Dash Ta Fame is also the broodmare sire of Guys Famous Girl, winner of $130,000 and the 2011 Barrel Horse of the Year title.
DM Sissy Hayday was the 2018 PRCA/AQHA Barrel Horse of the Year. She is also the barrel racing winner of The American Rodeo in 2017. This mare is out of Royal Sissy Irish by Royal Shake Em by Royal Quick Dash by First Down Dash by Dash For Cash. Royal Shake Em is out of Shake Em Six, who is out of Shake It To Em by Dash For Cash. The dam of Royal Sissy Irish is That’s Sissy Baby by Lasbuddie by Dash For Cash. This gives Royal Sissy Irish a breeding pattern of 4 X 4 X 3 to Dash For Cash.
Dash For Cash was meant to be a runner. He succeeded and then became a very important sire. Along the way, he has made his presence known in the arena with horses that excel in cutting, tie-down roping, heading, heeling, steer wrestling and barrel racing - making him a true crossover connection for the versatility of the American Quarter Horse.
