The 7-year-old stallion Shamoon got his first stakes winner on October 11 when Bos Big Shamoon won the $72,900 John Deere Will Rogers Juvenile Challenge at Will Rogers Downs at Claremore, Oklahoma.


Bos Big Shamoon is a freshman gelding owned by Jeff Caron and Paul Quintanilla, and has now won half of his six career starts and earned $44,935. He was bred in Texas by Ollie Bartosh and is out of the Mr Bo Jackson mare Bos Arrival.


Shamoon is a sorrel stallion bred by Terri Carter of Washington, Oklahoma, and is owned by Ramon Montalvo of San Antonio, Texas. He placed in two of three career starts.


His sire, Shazoom, is one of the top 15 all-time leading sires by money earned, with progeny earnings of more than $23.6 million. He is also a sire of sires, with sons such as Azoom, Zoomin For Bux, Jess Zoomin and more representing him.


His dam also produced stakes-placed runner Royal Pueblo Moon ($18,644) and Magicaly Rare, the 2002 world champion in junior pole bending at the AQHA World Championship Show.


Bos Big Shamoon is Shamoon’s only registered foal, giving him a 100 percent siring rate.
