Dash for Cash
By Rocket Wrangler out of Find a Buyer (TB), Dash for Cash combined speed, athletic ability, conformation, intelligence and a good disposition. Foaled in 1973, the stallion started 25 races finishing first in 24 of them. Dash for Cash is the first horse to win consecutive Champion of Champions victories (1976 and 1977). In his first Champion of Champions race he set a track record of :21.49, and earned a Speed Index of 114. Among his many honors include World Champion Quarter Running Horse (1976 and 1977). He also is ranked at or near the top of nearly every AQHA leading sire list. Dash for Cash was moved to the 6666 Ranch near Guthrie, Texas, in 1994.
Erected 1995 by Anne W. Marion, AQHA Honorary Vice President.
