    He was a barrel racing legend...Charmayne James rode him to fame as a 14 year old girl. He was a horse her mother had ridden, and passed on to Charmayne...and Charmayne won against grown, seasoned barrel racers on him.

    And get this...according to wiki, he was cloned, and his clone stands at stud!
    Scamper (horse) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "Barrel racer Charmayne James rode Scamper from 1984-1993 in the National Finals Rodeo, with the pair winning the WPRA World Championship ten years in a row, from 1984 through 1993. Since being retired from competition, Scamper lived a beautiful healthy life until July 4, 2012 (see obituary below), and he has been cloned. The clone, nicknamed "Clayton", has been kept a stallion and stands at stud."
