Trevor Brazile and Miles Baker are partnering with Melanie Smith on the homozygous roan stallion Dirty Fling to make a unique outcross stallion available.
The Relentless Remuda—owned by Trevor Brazile and Miles Baker—have now partnered with Solo Select Horses on the junior stallion Dirty Fling, a 2019 red roan by Metallic Cat out of the A Streak Of Fling mare Streakin Gin.
The homozygous roan stallion will go into training immediately with Brazile and Baker in their Decatur, Texas, program, and he will be available for limited breedings via public auction in 2022, with details forthcoming.
“Ultimately, we are investing in the future of the industry by buying, raising, training and promoting the best possible horses,” said Brazile, who has 26 PRCA world titles and $7 million in ProRodeo earnings. “We know the value in controlling all the variables we can control in creating top horses, so we sought out a young stud that had everything we are looking for—great genetics, fluid movement, flat speed and that x-factor.”
“When we rode him, we felt every single attribute we look for in a top-tier prospect,” Baker continued. “The crew that’s had him up until this point has done a phenomenal job preparing him to go any direction, but now we’re going to make it our goal to take him to the next level in the rope horse industry. He won’t be limited to that, though. His speed will make him the ultimate out-cross on mares in the barrel racing too. We truly believe that he’s got the right stuff to help us with our goal of driving this industry forward with better and better horses.”
Brazile and Baker immediately enrolled the horse in the Royal Crown and Riata Buckle incentives, meaning his offspring will be eligible for millions of dollars in payout when they are arena-ready. They partnered with Melanie Smith of Solo Select Horses on the stallion, bringing the Smiths’ expertise in the promotion and marketing of the diverse stud to the forefront.
“We will cross him on our own mares, too, in order to quickly establish a set of offspring capable of doing great things in the business,” Brazile said. “We are already loving the time we’re spending in the saddle on him, and we can’t wait to get colts on the ground to continue this program. This is about helping to create a legacy with this stud to complement what we’re doing with Show Me The Buckles, and we are excited to show him to the public.”
