SHAMROCK2017 Sorrel Gelding
Shamrock is straight off the top shelf at Wilson Cattle Co. Every year we are committed to bringing our very best rope horses to Rancho Rio, and the reasons are many that we chose Shamrock. Shamrock is as wide as he is tall and is very athletic for his size. He turns around beautifully and stops like one should. Shamrock has been one of Rodey’s No. 1 horses for a long time. Rodey has hauled Shamrock to numerous ranch rodeos and used him extensively outside. The horses feel a different kind of pressure at a ranch rodeo compared to backing in the box. The result of a finished horse that has been in Rodey’s A-string is nothing short of amazing and the opportunity to own one does not come around very often!
There is a certain feel we like our horses to have—Shamrock is the definition of that feel. Shamrock understands the object of the game and will help you catch and handle the steer. He gets you to the right position, and when he goes left, he melts underneath you and moves quickly and smoothly, nearly in a side-passing position, that makes facing fast and flawless.
Shamrock is an outstanding heel horse! Jaylen Eldridge hauled Shamrock to all the opens and slides in 2022-2023 in Arizona and even won two holes on him at the Title Fights last year. Not only can a high number heeler ride him, but he dials down to let Brooke heel on him too. He really hunts the corner and drags his butt. Shamrock is very thick made and would be a perfect candidate to let someone tie-on and not get jerked around.
Shamrock’s lineage deserves attention. He is a direct son of the late great Dual Smart Rey. Earner of $330,000. Dual Smart Rey was a $10-million-dollar sire. Shamrock is out of Cat Glitter who has won $47,000.
We purchased Shamrock as a 2-year-old and know absolutely everything there is to know about one. He has the best demeanor. Shamrock is truly an in-your-pocket kind of horse, even since day one. We think that is very special. Step up to the fence and really pay attention to Shamrock. He's a different kind of special! We encourage any interested buyers to come give him a try. We also welcome buyers to arrange pre-purchase exams at their expense. Feel free to call us anytime.
