Soda Bradman: Producing Progeny for Every Need

Soda Bradman has been an outstanding sire with many progeny out there winning. They are also very sort after as good work horses.

Comments from Peter and Toni O’Neill: “Every horse we’ve broken in by him is very sensible, very trainable, and track cattle with ease” Toni said. “We need good solid work horses where we live and he has definitely filled that role”.

“When we were in the market for a good colt we needed a horse with good size and plenty of bone so they don’t break down and we won’t have to carry our saddle home,” Peter added. “Bradman is what we bought home and we haven’t regretted it as he has been passing it on to all of his progeny”.

Some of his progeny include:
