Famed versatility performance horse, PC Frenchman’s Hayday known as Dinero, has passed away at age 25. Dinero carried team roping heeler Cory Petska to the National Finals Rodeo in 2004 and 2005. Petska's wife, Sherry Cervi also ran him at the 2005 NFR. The prolific sire produced two world champion barrel horses; Cervi's MP Meter My Hay, known as Stingray, and Hailey Kinsel's DM Sissys Hayday, known as Sister. On the other side of the arena, Dinero took many ropers to the pay window and produced Derrick Begay's prized gray mare Bowkay. "He had such an impact on two sides of the arena," Tigh Cowan, who raised Dinero (in partnership with the Louiseau family), told The Team Roping Journal. "He represents the overall diversity and grittiness of the Sun Frost horses that we raised."
