Frank Vessels

Frank Vessels, 1st Hall of Fame Inductee

Frank “Scoop” Vessels III is unique in that he ranks simultaneously among the nation’s top breeders in both the Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse indutries. The esteem in which both camps hold him is borne out by the fact that he has been president of the American Quarter Horse Association. Know best for the creation and management of the Vessel’s Stallion Farm near San Diego, his farm stands the top racing Quarter horse stallion in the country, First Down Dash, as well as the leading Thoroughbred sire on the West Coast, In Excess (ire). Scoop Vessels is one of the equine industry’s most exemplary entrepreneurs.
