A Legendary Stallion that made a huge impact on the Quarter Horse Industry!
The kind, loving, gentle giant will be missed by all he impacted in the Quarter Horse industry. The 4-time Congress Champion and AQHA Reserve World Champion, 16.2 Bay AQHA Stallion by Protect Your Assets and out of Katt Sass, born in 2000, passed away in November 2023.
If you were one of the lucky ones to be graced by his presence, such as owners Jerry and Kathy Tobin and his trainers and stallion managers, Jim and Deanna Searles of Circle S Ranch, you know what a true blessing he was.
“Our hearts are broken, today is one of the days that everyone in the horse industry dreads” shared Jim, Deanna, Kathy and Jerry.
21 years ago at the Redbud in Oklahoma, Kathy Tobin and Allocate Your Assets, journey began. Allocate Your Assets started his career in the show pen winning the two-year-old open HUS at the Congress, The Southern Belle, and the NSBA Breeders Championship. He continued to show and win, racking up many championships including a Reserve AQHA World Championship in Sr HUS, A Bronze Globe at the AQHA Select World Show, Congress Champion Sr. HUS and countless futurity and maturity wins.
Through his solid AQHA show career he ended up a four time Congress Champion and an AQHA Reserve World Champion in Hunter Under Saddle, as well as Multiple NSBA Highpoint Championships.
His impressive career accomplishments were outdone by the impact he had as a sire of extensive progeny winnings. This great stallion has 637 AQHA foals to date who have earned in excess of 1.8M dollars, 28,378 AQHA points, 31 AQHA World Championships and 18 Reserve AQHA World Championships. In 2011, Allocate Your Assets “Al” sired FOUR Congress Champions and THREE Reserve Champions. He also sired numerous NSBA World Champions, and major Futurity champions. According to the Q Stallions 2021 report Al is the #1 Hunter Under Saddle and English All Around Sire from the AQHA stats.
‘Al’ was referred to as the king of the barn but his sweet eye and kind demeanor made you forget sometimes that he was in deed a stallion. He set the standard for what a Hunter Under Saddle horse could look and move like. He has made a lasting impact on the industry and will be sorely missed.
“Thank you to all that loved him, supported him, cheered him, rode him and bred to him. Al was a blessing to us all.
