Royal Ace M. was a true champion from the start.  His mother, Sensation's Lady Luck, is a full sister to Sensation's Gunsmoke, the 1987 World Grand Champion. Lucky had the talent to win it all, but she foundered as a three year old and was restricted to broodmare status which she has more than excelled at.

Royal Ace's sire is Royal Flush M.  who is out of the Great Missouri Traveler and Bo's April Charm.  Royal Flush has shown that he is a true sire of Champons because  Royal ace is out of his first drop of colts.

Royal Ace has the real natural, rhythmic fox trot which makes it very exciting to watch him travel.  Ace has defied the odds from day one, but there is one thing that is almost impossible to beat and that is raw talent which is Royal Ace's strong suit.

Royal Ace started his show career by winning the National Breeder's Cup 3 Year Old Championship Class. Then went on to Ava and won the 3 Year old World Champion Stud Class on Tuesday night of the 1998 Show & Celebration.  We were very proud when Lincoln and Linda Dastrup of Provo, Utah purchased 1/2 interest of this fine, young stallion.  It was a very special moment when Royal Ace was crowned the 1998 3 Year Old World Grand Champion and Lincoln, Linda and my wife, Julie, got to come to center ring to have their pictures taken. 

Thank you very much for all of your support with Royal Ace.
