Dixie Union – Grass Skirt, by Mr. Prospector

Sire of Texas-bred superstar and millionaire TEXAS CHROME-G3!

A proven world-class racehorse, GRASSHOPPER won the Grade 3 Mineshaft Handicap at Fair Grounds and placed in six other graded stakes, including a second-place finish, beaten a half-length, to Grade 1 Kentucky Derby winner STREET SENSE in the Grade 1, $1 million Travers Stakes at Saratoga.

GRASSHOPPER is the sire of TEXAS CHROME, who in 2017 joined GROOVY as just the second Texas-bred millionaire in history after a career that included wins in the Grade 3 Super Derby and Grade 3 Oklahoma Derby (over a span of just 15 days!) and a start in the Grade 1, $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. GRASSHOPPER is also the sire of Texas-bred star SUPERMASON, a seven-time stakes winner, track record holder and earner of more than $400,000.

He is also the sire of SHOTSOFT, a $120,000 Texas 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale purchase who won the 2018 El Joven Stakes at Retama Park.
