Sannman
A rare gem.

“Sannman was a late started colt but has came on strong over the last year. He has been a limited aged event finalist 18 times, making 8 out of 9 finals in 2015 to finish the year strong. With one more year to go in the show pen we are very excited about him. He is very electric on a cow with a strong move. We think he will make a great sire with his strong pedigree top and bottom.”

Sannman's Story
+

SannmanSDP Buffalo Ranch is really excited to introduce Sannman to Australia.

This is a performance horse like no other. He has exceptional ability, yet his major attribute as a sire is his impeccable genetics. Being by Metallic Cat is exciting, but his mother is as special as they come.

The Smart Look is a Smart Little Lena mare who has a maternal record equal to none. She is the #3 All Time Leading Producer and she is the dam of 3 Triple Crown Event Champions (Futurity, Super Stakes & Summer Spectacular), all with different sires. This indicates that Sannman will breed successfully to mares of different bloodlines as his mother has.

SannmanSannman is also a ¾ brother to WR This Cats Smart and a ½ brother to Dual Smart Rey, two of this generation’s most successful sires. His pedigree is just full of talented show horses.

Sannman has proven everything he needs to in the cutting pen, but the good news for cutting enthusiasts is that he will continue to be shown by SDP Buffalo Ranch and Paul Hansma in Aged Events, simply because it’s so much fun watching him.

SDP Buffalo Ranch director, Shane Plummer, could not be more excited about the future and predicts that Sannman will be the Freshman Sire of the Year in 2 years’ time. He can happily base this prediction on the quality and the quantity of mares that have been bred to him during the last US breeding season.
