Gentlemen Send Roses

Sire: Whata Investment by The Big Investment
Breeders Trust and NSBA eligible. Limited futurities. Call for updated list.

Gus (GSR) is an incredible mover but unfortunately was never able to show that in the pen. He was injured as a yearling in the right fetlock and hock and although 3 different vet clinics had said that with time he would be sound, we were not been able to get him sound enough to show. But he has proven his pleasure ability in his offspring. You should see them lope! As the true proof of a stallion in the foals he produces, we found Gus to make his mark.

Currently #4 on the APHA Performance Sire list, Gus is proving himself to be a producer of true all around horses. They are as successful in the rail classes as the pattern classes. Great lead changers, super at trail. First Hunter Under Saddle horse showed in 2010 and he has proven that they can long trot with the best of them. More Top 10's at the APHA Summer and Fall World Shows, White Silk Stockings, Sensational Gentlemen, Chipped In Roses. Fall Futurity wins with Imagentlemenotarebel and Sharpdressed Gentlemen.

Owned by GSR Investments. Thank you for your trust in our program and this fantastic stallion. Gus continues to stand at and be managed by Harnish Performance Horses.

Why gamble on color with your breeding dollars? Gus promises color and movement that the judges are appreciating in the pen.
