“They win a lot on him,” said Pete Carr, owner of Carr Pro Rodeo. “Last year was the first year that we put some pressure on him, and he was selected to be part of the TV pen at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He is really fun to flank, and he looks really fun to ride for the first four or five jumps, he just jumps in the air.
“He is really electric when he leaves the chute. He jumps up in the air and extends everything he can, kicks and just hangs there and stalls out for three or four jumps then moves on out. He is young, but so far he has proved he can take it.”
“That horse just bucks,” said D.V. Fennell of Neosho, Mo., who rode Dirty Jacket to an 86.5 in the 10th round of the 2009 NFR. “He leaps in the air and shows off. He’s not just a dead easy hopper, but he’s a mix between a hopper and a bucker. He’s the one that you want.”
“That horse likes that arena a lot,” three-time world champion Will Lowe said. “He just likes to buck. He’s such a good horse. He’s in the TV pen at the NFR, so you know he’s the one guys want to get on.”
