Watching the magnificent 6666 Ranch colts charge into the arena at Road to the Horse is simply unforgettable. The running of the Remuda is the true magic of Road to the Horse. The 6666 Ranch has assembled a selection of their finest for the Road to the Horse Wild Card Challenge. Selected by Dr. Glenn Blodgett, the seven untouched colts in the Road to the Horse Wild Card Remuda represent the perfect blend of proven Road to the Horse sires and new bloodlines. The sires of the Road to the Horse Wild Card Remuda are BAMACAT, BET HESA CAT, METALLIC MASTERPIECE and NATURAL BOTTOM.
If these colts look familiar to you, you’re right! The colts traveled to Lexington, Kentucky, to run in the Road to the Horse 2022 Remuda. Colts not selected by our Championship Competitors then returned to the 6666 Ranch where the colts have been enjoying their time at home in the 6666 Ranch pastures. They will be regathered for their trip to the historic Fort Worth Stockyards in September.
