American Quarter Horse Association, December 28, 2015 – Heza Dasha Fire has become the 35th horse since 2002 to become an AQHA Supreme Race Horse.
The 3-year-old gelding, bred and raced by S-Quarter K LLC of Kennewick, Washington, is the 106th horse in total to earn the award (the awards prior to 2002 were given retroactively).
The Supreme Race Horse award recognizes a racing American Quarter Horse who during his or her career earns $500,000 or more, wins two or more open Grade 1 stakes races and at least 10 races.
Heza Dasha Fire has raced exclusively at Los Alamitos Race Course in his 12-race career. Of those races, he has won 11, with his sole career defeat being a fourth-place finish in last year’s Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity (G1). He most recently won the Champion of Champions (G1), and also has on his record victories in the Los Alamitos Super Derby (G1), Ed Burke Million Futurity (G1), Golden State Million Futurity (G1) and Golden State Derby (G2). He has earned $1,689,388.
The horse is by Walk Thru Fire and is out of the Mr Jess Perry mare Dasha Freda. Last year’s champion 2-year-old gelding, Heza Dasha Fire is a leading contender for championship honors this year.
