Main Power and Ted Williams Join Rising Star Ranch



World Grand Champions Main Power and Ted Williams Join Rising Star Ranch Stallion Roster.

Rising Star Ranch is proud to announce the addition of World Grand Champions Main Power and Ted Williams to its breeding division. The stallions were purchased by Debbie and Frank Eichler to join Rising Star’s already diverse lineup of champion stallions.

"We are thrilled to add stallions of this caliber to our presently exceptional lineup. We feel their presence will allow us to expand our operation by offering mare owners even more great selections from top bloodlines," said breeding manager and resident veterinarian Dr. Mike Harry.

Seven-time World Champion Main Power, purchased from the partnership of Neal Holland, Gus King, and Robert Kilgore, enjoyed a stellar show career that culminated in his being crowned the 2005 World Grand Champion.

Ted Williams, purchased from Summit Stallions, enjoyed a tremendous show career which netted four World Championships including the 2002 Two-Year-Old World Grand Championship.

Prior to joining the Rising Star breeding division, both stallions have been managed by the Holland, King, and Kilgore owned Summit Stallions at Sand Creek Farm. According to Holland and Kilgore, Sand Creek Farm will be focusing on its sale division, the industry’s only full time sale organization, in operation since 2003.
