From The Quarter Racing Record, Nov. 15, 1983

 

 

 

 

 Photos of Go Man Go as a stud!

 

Three-time World Champion Go Man Go died on October 14 [1983] at Buena Suerte Ranch, Roswell, New Mexico at the age of thirty. The strawberry roan stallion was sensational on the track, and he proved to be just as great a sire as he was a runner. For several years he was the leading sire of money earners, and he is the all time leading maternal grandsire [November 1983].

 

Go Man Go was bred by J.B. Ferguson of Wharton, Texas. He was by the Thoroughbred Top Deck out of Lightfoot Sis, a daughter of the Thoroughbred Very Wise.

 

As a two-year-old in 1955, he won nine times and ran second once from 10 outs, earning $16,121 and taking the first of his three consecutive World Champion titles. At three, he won 10 of 13 outs, earning $29,431. At four, he had five firsts and three seconds from eight tries, worth $26,821. At five he compiled a 1-4-2 record in 10 races for $10,615. In his final season on the trrack as a six-year-old, he went 2-1-1 from six starts for $3,160.

 

In 47 lifetime starts, he put together a record of 27 wins, nine seconds and three thirds, with earnings of $86,151, to be leader of his day.

 

Jockey Robert Strauss, who rode Go Man Go during most of his career, was quoted in the April 1958 issue of the Quarter Horse Journal, "Go Man Go is in my heart," he said. "He is a good natural horse. He loves to run at all times, and I always get a thrill when riding him. But he does have funny ways. It is terribly hard to gallop him with a grey pony because when he was a three-year-old he fell in love with a grey pony and still remembers it."

Go Man Go did double duty, in the stud and on the track after his four-year-old campaign. In 1959, before his small, first crop had competed, Frank Vessels, Sr. and W.H. Peckham bought the young stallion for the unheard of price of $125,000. Eventually Harriet Peckham became the sole owner, and the horse stood at Buena Suerte Ranch during he early seventies.

 

Go Man Go sired World Champions Goetta and Go Josie Go as well as Dynago Miss, Miss Steam to Go, Whataway to Go, Go Derussa Go and Duplicate Copy, who were all named Quarter Running Horse Champions. All-American Futurity winners Hustling Man in 1962 and Goetta in 1963 were both sired by Go Man Go.

 

From 942 foals and 778 starters, Go Man Go saw 555 of his babies reach Register of Merit standard. Among them were 83 stakes winners and 63 stakes placed. Forty ran AAAT times, 272 ran AAA and 236 ran AA. They had combined earnings of $7,629,895. Only Easy Jet and Dash For Cash, whose babies .whose babies are running after today's much larger purses, have sired with greater total earnings.

Go Man Go's daughters have gone on with the job as broodmares. Through 1982, his daughters had produced 792 Register of Merit qualifiers. Their starters had earned $10,283,360. By comparison, his closest rival as a broodmare sire was Jet Deck, whose grandchildren have earned $7,604,303 through the end of last year.

 

In 1982 alone, Go Man Go's daughters produced 105 Register of Merit qualifiers and 161 individual winners with earnings of more than $1.3 million.

 

While Go Man Go spent the last few years in comfortable retirement at Buena Suerte, his get kept his name to the forefront on the track and and at stud, as they will continue to do for years to come.

 


GO MAN GO PHOTOS

 

Connie Danielson Gainor, of Clinton, British Columbia, Canada, shared some fantastic photos of the great Go Man Go with Circle D Horses. These photos, taken by Connie's father, Art Danielson, in 1961, were taken when the champion racehorse was 8-years-old.

 

 

Art Danielson bred and raised Quarter Horses for more than half a century. In 1961, Art took his favorite mare, Paula Babe (by Paul A) to Go Man Go. The resulting filly, Baby Go, was absolutely full of GO! She had a record of 12-3-2 from 31 starts. Baby Go won the Paulouse Empire Derby and set a new track record doing so, she placed 2nd in the Waitsburg Futurity, set a new track record at Colfax Racetrack (400 yards in 0:20.900) and set a new track record at Portland Meadows (350 yards in 0:17.940).

 

She went on to be an important broodmare for Art and his family, producing 11 nice foals during her lifetime.

 

Art's daughter Connie and her husband, of British Columbia, have a nice herd of well-bred horses from those Art began putting together many years ago.
