2003 Sorrel Stallion

(Play Red x Marsala Dulce, by CJ Sugar)

Born, bred and broke on the Kind Ranch, MARSALA RED is a ninth-generation descendant of OLD SORREL.

Rolando Silguero, who used to serve as King Ranch’s Remudero (wrangler) for the horse operation, would demonstrate MARSALA RED’s polite demeanor by saddling MARSALA and gather the stallion’s own mare band. MARSALA is almost a mirror image of HIRED HAND, a top son of OLD SORREL.

MARSALA RED's foals include PLAYADA MARSALA (AQHA point-earner: 9th Congress Pole Bending Junior Youth), A LIL BIT O FLASH (6th AQHA Cowtown Showdown Ranch Horse Open).

MARSALA RED is a son of PLAY RED, $136,088: split 4th NCHA Super Stakes Open Classic; 5th Polo Ranch Cutting 4-Year-Old Open Derby; Abilene Spectacular Non-Pro Classic Co-Reserve Champion; finalist in the NCHA Non-Pro Derby; El Cid Cutting 4-Year-Old Non-Pro Co-Reserve Champion. The sire of PLAY RED SALLY ($5,184 and 16 AQHA points: and 14 novice points: AQHA World Level 2 Amateur Barrel Racing Reserve Champion), ROYAL RED PLAY ($90,820: NCHA Western Nationals Non-Pro Champion).
