Watch Red Sunupbaron head shot
1999 chestnut, by Mr Baron Red -- AQHA Superhorse, AQHA Champion, Spuerior Calf Roping, Superior Heading, sire of 69 Performance point earners, 14 Halter point earners, 42 Arena ROMs, 7 Superior Performers. Dam: Watch Jo Peggy by Watch Joe Jack -- AQHA Ch., Sup. Halter-225pts, World Champion Aged Stallion and World Champion Sr. Team Roping (runner up) sire of 9 AQHA Ch. World Champions, 8 Sup. Halter, 28 Sup. Perf. Watch Red Sunup was purchased as a weanling from the Pitzer Ranch and comes with the highest credentials. He has a lot of the Baron look - and temperament. Baron has a lot of class and presence, exceptional legs, with good bone and feet. He stands at 15'1. In 2004 he was in training with Mark Wray, but a bout with EPM cut short his performance career just at a point where he was really coming on. We believe this horse has a great future as a sire here at Sunup Ranch.
