One Stylish Pepto is an embryo son of the great One Moore Spin and Peptos Stylish Oak. Bred by Todd Graham, he was always going to be an elite performer and an elite sire.
His cutting career began with a strong Futurity year in 2007 when he won both the DDCC and CCCC Futurities. He followed up in 2008 by being the NCHA Derby Champion.
His LTE are $75,068 and his career included a trip to the States where he was shown by Todd.
During his career he was watched closely by the entire cutting community who marvelled at his attractive style and athletic displays.
Peter Shakspeare also followed his career with interest as he is unashamedly the single biggest fan of One Moore Spin. He believes she is one of the cowiest horses in the world and that through the success of her progeny, she has become the benchmark of cattle working genetics in this country.
As a keen follower of genetics he insists that whatever you breed, you must start with the best and One Moore Spin offers just that. Consequently, when One Stylish Pepto was offered for sale at the Tamworth Landmark Sale in February, 2013, Peter was interested for several different reasons.
Firstly, One Stylish Pepto had a tremendously successful cutting career behind him, but Peter also believed he was the perfect sire choice to breed a dual purpose horse for both campdrafting and cutting. He believed and still does believe that dual purpose horses are the future of the industry for breeders as financially they offer alternative markets for a wider choice of sale clients.
Secondly, Mark Buttsworth approached him and suggested he should buy the horse. Mark’s enthusiastic appraisal of One Stylish Pepto cemented the idea and he was purchased at auction for $120,000.
Immediately Peter was approached by 20 odd people who all wanted in to the partnership. However, a small partnership of Peter, Chris Cummins and Mark Buttsworth was formed and the future of One Stylish Pepto was secure.
Peter believes One Moore Spin genetics are the solid genetics breeding the champion horses of this era. At the time, similarly, he anticipated One Stylish Pepto genetics would breed on and produce in the same capacity as his mother has done in campdrafting, cutting and challenge.
Several years down the track and Peter’s beliefs have come to fruition on all accounts and the rest as they say, is history.
One Stylish Pepto and Mark Buttsworth have become renowned in the campdraft arena. His freakish athleticism sees him delight spectators time and time again as he consitently pulls off huge scores not only in the yard but in the camp.
Hopes for his progeny have also been realised with expectations being surpassed by their success across disciplines.
The One Moore Syndicate couldn’t be happier, they believed One Stylish Pepto was a legend in his own time, and they were right.
