Dick and Connie Baker's very own Piece of the Pie
Lusk Wyoming has a gold mine standing at Dick and Connie Baker's ranch in the form of a gorgeous golden stallion. When the market started to slow for regular using horses, the Bakers needed to make a decision, either get out of the horse breeding business or start breeding the popular bloodlines into their program. Decision made, they went to the Myers sale in the fall of 2007 and purchased the stallion Guys Piece Ofthe Pie, a son of leading barrel stallion Frenchman's Guy.
When trying to decided what horse they would purchase, Dick said "when we saw Guys Piece ofthe Pie, what impressed us about him, besides that he was gorgeous, was that when you walked into his pen he came right up to you even though he was still on his dam.” You can't overlook the fact that he is also out of one of the most prolific daughters of Leading Broodmare Sire, Pie In The Sky. His dam is none other than Fleeting Pie the dam of Sky High Guy, who has earnings of over $200,000 in futurities and WPRA rodeos and is owned by Nikki Steffes Hansen. Fleeting Pie is also the dam of Futurity Champion Fleeting French Girl and WPRA winning barrel horse Guys Pie In The Sky. And the dam of Peaches N Pie, $10,000 in equi-stat earnings top 5 SPRA, top 15 IPRA Southeast Region, Numerous WPRA rodeo placings in 2015.
Baker’s teamed up with Rusty and Skye Martin to start Guys Piece ofthe Pie. He then headed to the barrel futurities ridden by Rod Grote. He had a successful season winning money at the Red White and Run and the Dash & Dance Futurities. Nugget went back out on the road in 2016 with Jaimie Merrill, placing 3rd in the 2nd go of the Fizz Bomb Maturity and winning the Mile Hi Northern Circuit Year End Open 1D Champion saddle. He continued his winning ways, winning the WRA Membership Drive barrel race and the Goshen County Fair. He won the Ogallala, Gordon, Harrison & Edgemont rodeos. Placed 3rd in his first Slot race, filled Jaime Merrill's WPRA Permit and ended up adding another $11,600+ to his earnings for the year. 2018 is proving to be another stellar year with Nugget adding another $5,600+ to the bank roll placing 2nd in a tough Slot Race as well as qualifying to The American and winning or placing at Pro Rodeos.
