No Really--You Ain't Seen Nothin Yet
I had an awesome visit with Lisa Miladinovich and talked details of the meteoric rise of her stallion and what it’s like in the trenches of not only standing a stallion, but doing it all in-house, on-site, hands-on. We discuss how mare owners can do their part to ensure success in the breeding shed and Lisa's perspective on incentives. Lisa also shares some pet peeves and frustrations as well as how to overcome common misconceptions and hurdles encountered in the world of reproduction.
The cat is out of the bag and my guest today, Lisa Miladinovich, has won the cover of the next Barrel Horse News with her stallion Ain’t Seen Nothin Yet. Actually after meeting this stud I think HE believes it’s the other way around, and Lisa belongs to him.
If you follow barrel racing at all you are probably well aware of the impact that Ain’t Seen Nothin Yet’s offspring are having on arena records and leaderboards.
* Ain’t Seen Me Yet and Maggie Poloncic were the leading 1D money earning horse and rider for 2020 and I’m constantly seeing five-figure payouts behind their names in results
* Amelia McCumber and Ain’t Seen Famous Yet who just topped $300,000 in earnings
* Promise Me Fame Guys formerly owned by Tenley Epperson and ridden by Sam Flannery who was tearing up the futurity world this year until the gelding was purchased by Teton Ridge and placed in Lisa Lockhart’s equine lineup.
Lisa just placed in two rounds and the average of the Badlands Circuit Finals riding Promise Me Fame Guys, and my money is on seeing that horse at the NFR here in the next few weeks.
I had an awesome visit with Lisa Miladinovich before I headed to Florida—more on that later—and talked details on the meteoric rise of her stud and what it’s like in the trenches of not only standing a stallion, but doing it all in-house, on-site, hands-on.
