Remembering Twist Kokomos Jet
Twist was a 1995 seal brown gelding purchased by us as a yearling from Hilker's Sunrise Ranch in Nebraska. He was the product of breeding one of their good mares to Ashes In The Fire, an own son of Fire Water Flit. We liked his overall good looks, his heavy bone, and straight legs. As he grew, he developed the bulging muscles of a born athlete. At maturity he stood 15.1 and weighed about 1100 lbs. He inherited the Flit Bar athletic turns - hind quarters low in the ground.
Twist demonstrated his dexterity and athletic ability not only in barrel racing, but also in pole bending. His fastest recorded time for us on a standard AQHA pattern was 20.001.
His winnings during his 5 year old futurity year included:
- Rocky Mountain Barrel Racing Futurity, Ogden, UT, Amateur Champion
- 5-State Breeders Futurity, Rapid City, SD, Reserve Champion
- Fizz Bomb Classic Barrel Racing Futurity, Gillette, WY, 6th in the average
- VGBRA Breeders Futurity, Walla Walla, WA, 5th place
- Barrel Breeders Incentive Futurity, Great Falls, MT, 1st in the average
- Triangle Barrel Racing Futurity,Great Falls, MT, Reserve Champion, Open
- Triangle Barrel Racing Futurity,Great Falls, MT, Amateur Champion
Barrel Racing and Pole Bending Earnings to date over $11,000!
