VALIANT HERO needs no introduction as a race horse and sire- a stakes winner with over half a million dollars on the race track himself, and a producer of over $21.8 million dollars on the race track with multiple earners of over 1 million dollars each. What is more exciting for Davang Quarter Horses is his beginning influence in the barrel pen. High Valor and Donna Kay Rule are 2019 NFR Qualifiers, and High Valor was named AQHA Barrel Horse of the Year. Valiant Hero has also produced the influential barrel horse Firin To Be A Hero. I have always wanted a Valiant Hero, I have always believed they would appear in the barrel pen, and we are super excited to finally have a piece of his legacy in our breeding program.
