King Hollywood was bred with performance in mind. His bloodlines are full of legends of the Australian Quarter Horse Breed. Our main aim was to obtain that magic cross of “Hollywood Gold” and “King P234” that produce “Hollywood Jac 86” and consequently “Hollywood Dun It” (USA leading sire of reining horses) and of course “Mr Moore 8” who was one of Australia’s influential sires (maternal great grand sire of cutting legend “One Moore Spin”.
These are just a two of this cross that has influenced what the Quarter Horse is today. This cross is going to give us a horse that is bred for cutting, reining and rodeo, but also the versatility to do any event well. This cross has given us a stallion that has the foundation of the legends that formed what the Quarter Horse is today, but has also given us a perfect outcross to the abundance of “Doc Bar”, “Peppy San Badger” and the more recent modern bloodlines of “Smart Little Lena” and “Pepto” lines that fill Australia at this time.
Hogans Crusader is one of the most exciting young sires currently standing at stud. His scale and elevation, style and bone are outstanding and his athleticism and temperament are exceptional. He was purchased by Crusader Partnership in 2010 from renowned Queensland stud principals Gordon and Enid McKinlay. Hogans Crusaders’ dam is Waymere I’m Beautiful (Kirbys Stud Wallaroo). Wallaroo carries the highly sought after sire line of Quidong Brigadier (Elliots Creek Cadet) while on the dam’s side, the linage goes back to Waymere Lurid Lady, a daughter of Regal Lane.
Hogans Crusader was one of the first sons of the highly acclaimed sire Knights Nicholas to stand on the open market. Knights Nicholas first arrived on the competitive scene in 2001 as a three year old, achieving an impressive 22 gates from 23 runs in his first season of campdrafting. A year later he went on to claim Champion 4yo Working Stallion at the 2002 ASH Nationals and edged out horses twice his age to win the National Stallion Campdraft. His other achievements are equally notable – he was the first full blood Australian Stockhorse to win the Cloncurry Stockmans Challenge Reining Final, he was awarded High Point Horse of the 2003 ASH National Show as well as ASH Star of the Year. He also competed successfully in campdrafting’s pinnacle event; The Warwick Gold Cup.
