Does anyone have any experience with own sons of Mr Jess Perry?
Would you purchase one? I have a chance to purchase a 4 year old bred at 6666. He’s out of a race proven Corona Cartel daughter. A friend of mine says MJPs are too fast for the pattern, but I’m not sure if I agree since I don’t have a way of knowing. I always thought they were just too expensive for most non-race industry people so that’s why you rarely see them. (??)
I know a lot of girls are running Corona Cartel sons and daughters and grandget and the Coronas are doing awesome. Would the bottom side offset your decision in any way if you’re opposed to MJP? The only pro rodeo horses I can think of out of Corona Cartel are Lisa Lockhart’s Rosa and then under MJP grandget, Sydni Blanchard’s deceased Jess Louisiana Blue NFR horse. Any others I’m missing?

I ran a direct son of MJP out of a DTF dam. Thought it was going to be perfect. Absolutely beautiful horse , off the track with only 1 start. He made a barrel horse overnight. Pretty much literally. He went to winning barrel races very early. One day he just decided he didn’t want to be a barrel horse anymore. Up and out of the blue. Spent over 3k at vet and nothing was wrong but his attitude. I sold him. I have heard from track trainers that they can be hard headed. One day the barrel pattern just wasn’t fun anymore I guess. Lol

Well darn! That doesn’t put me at ease! Lol. I appreciate the response, but I’m sorry to hear it! Do you know if the horse ever got back to running after you sold him? I’ve been looking high and low for sons and daughters who are running at a competive level, but it seems most are in the breeding shed only. Grandsons and daughters are plenty. I think I’ll take the risk. I really like him. Just wish more people had more experience with them. Thanks again for sharing.

JMHO, so take it or leave it. But when someone says something is too fast for a barrel horse, I’d like to smack them. There’s really no such thing as “too fast”. Most people simply want to ride like Whiplash The Cowboy Monkey On Crack and kick the ever living daylights out of one because everyone is screaming KICK KICK HUSTLE HUSTLE. Very few can sit there and be quiet. Certain bloodlines need a smart jockey that can sit there, ride quiet and not try to push one through the sound barrier. People are the ones that cause issues and bad reputations in certain bloodlines.
