Sign of Lanty 1994-2016
Jackie and Rod MacPherson's phenomenal distance horse by The Signature out of the TImeto Thinkrich mare Think Lanty has passed away at his home at the Firth Ranch. This AQHA Supreme Race Horse was World Champion Distance horse in 2000, 2001, and 2002 setting a track record at Lone Star Park (870 yds) in 2000. In a career that spanned seven years, Sign of Lanty faced the starter 65 times, with 28 wins (17 of them in stakes), 17 seconds (9 in stakes), and 3 thirds (1 stakes). He made $545,391 with a 108 SI before retiring sound. He was one tough race horse and though he's gone he won't be forgotten!
Firth Ranch is sad to announce the passing of our beloved Moonist.
Goodbye Moonist, always a champion, you will be missed.
