Fire Water Flit remains one of the leading barrel horse sires of today. He has been on the list of leading sires year after year, and with an unusually high number of winning barrel horses contributing to his successful winnings record. That indicates many different mares, different types of mares, and many different riders are successfully winning riding his offspring.

He was the product of crossing a NFR qualifying mare with Flit Bar, sire of great and successful arena horses of all types. Flit Bar is representative of what has become known as a "magic cross", Leo daughters bred to the great Sugar Bars. Slash J Harletta, his dam, was so successful as a producer of winning barrel horses that her offspring have been referred to as a 'dynasty'.

Fire Water Flit passed away in his stall from natural causes on December 20, 2005.

Flit Bars have a characteristic way of handling themselves in a turn - they are very smooth and easy to ride, and they get their hindquarters low in the ground. The 'Flit Bar era' could be said to have begun in 1975, when Jimmie Gibbs Monroe won the World Championship Barrel Racing title on a Flit Bar son. We don't think that 'era' has ever ended.
