When staying power matters, this Stallion is built to go the miles.
The first thing you’ll notice when you see Whiz Van Winkle is that he is strikingly beautiful, and I mean he’s really something! He is smooth from the tip of his nose down to his toes. Standing 15 hands tall, with his full mane and tail just about as long – “Van” certainly leaves an impression.
But, he is not just a pretty face. Whiz Van Winkle won an astounding 103 cheques! The road to his more than $30,000 in winnings shows his longevity in the show pen and purity of mind to keep going and going like the Energizer bunny. It’s not easy for any horse to do that, rare is it for a stallion. I believe his conformation, bone and body helped him hold up through the years of showing. His ability to win 103 cheques truly is remarkable.
He’s by Topsail Whiz, who needs no introduction as one of only 3 and the first $12m NRHA sire! Whiz Van Winkle is a champion from a very long and storied line of champions. Van is a perfect cross on daughters of today’s leading lines. Pedigree will always be the best predictor of performance. You get a lot of bang for your buck with Whiz Van Winkle, and there are so many sire lines he will excel on.
His first foals are showing, and their promise and aspiring future has led Van down to Texas to stand at Cardinal Ranch Stallion Station. Owned by McNamara Performance Horses, and proudly represented in Australia by Genetically Gifted.
