“He was bought as a stud from Brian and Dennis Gifford of Rozet, Wyo., at a bucking horse sale in Cody, Wyo.,” said Pete Carr, owner of Carr Pro Rodeo. “His half-sister is Wasp of Stace Smith’s, which has been to the finals six or seven times.
“He is still a little nervous in there, but he kicks the lights out every jump, He’s been cut, hauled and now headed to Vegas this year. That’s throwing one into the grease; we will see how he handles everything pretty quick.”
