This beautiful bull was bred by Donald Winger of Salem, Oregon, and won multiple Grand Championships for Don on the show circuit. We bought him from Don at the 2003 Horn Showcase sale (his full sister from 1998, Royal Class Gal, was another of the high-sellers at the 2003 Horn Showcase sale, and was purchased by Bill Hudson of Hudson Longhorns). He is E+/e at the Extension locus, and expresses a very deep, saturated walnut (wild-type) coloration that almost looks black. He also exhibits the lineback pattern; he is SP/s at the Spotted locus, so he will produce lineback and spotted offspring. His horn development, conformation, size, behavior, and coloration are all outstanding. He has produced some excellent calves. His ancestors are from the Butler, Phillips, WR, and Wright families of Texas Longhorns. His dam and both granddams are among the breed's best cows. L Bet I Can, from the Betty Lamb breeding program, is the dam of many of the high-selling cows and bulls in the breed. The crossing of the great Phenomenon bull with the L Bet I Can cow is legendary for producing quality offspring. Crown's Classic Shadow is a result of the best bull from this great cross (Crown Royal) mated with an outstanding cow from Bail Jumper and Butler lineages (SK Classy Express).
