Wayne, Okla.—October 30, 2019—Connections to IVORY JAMES are eager and excited to announce that he has joined the exclusive lineup of 150 stallions nominated to the RUBY BUCKLE barrel racing incentive program. The RUBY BUCKLE is founded by the producers of the popular PINK BUCKLE incentive program to help meet the growing industry demand for high stakes barrel racing opportunities for stallion owners, breeders and competitors.
“We have seen Ivory James steadily grow in popularity within the barrel racing industry through his breeding book each year,” said Laura Erickson, partner and manager of Royal Vista Ranches. “He has and always will be a predominant Quarter Horse racing sire. However, the natural ability and athletiscm he is passing on to his offspring in the barrel pen is undeniable through their consistent, proven success. It seems only right to continue to allow his breeding career to grow and diversify through the Ruby Buckle.”
The Ruby Buckle has not yet announced the full lineup of 2020 sires. However, they have released that one of three Ruby Buckle sanctioned events will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, June 2-6, 2020. They continue to roll out updates and information on their Facebook Page here.
Contract reservations for the 2020 breeding season has begun and are available for Ivory James. Please call (405) 449-7575 or email the ranch at email@example.com to get your contract started. His breeding fee for 2020 is set at $4,000 with possible considerations to proven performers and/or producers.
