Calgary Stampede’s Grated Coconut, the six-time and reigning PRCA Bareback Riding Horse of the Year best known among bareback riders as "The Stud," has been retired from competition.

"Grated Coconut hasn’t competed since the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo last December in Las Vegas," said Dr. David Chalack, president and chairman of the board for the Calgary Stampede. "In watching him closely this spring out at Stampede Ranch, it is clear he is now primarily interested in spending time with the mares."

Steven Dent set an arena record at the Caldwell (Idaho) Night Rodeo with a 91-point ride on Grated Coconut in 2008, and Dusty LaValley was 91 points on him that year at the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo in Denver.

The 13-year-old stallion is the son of dam Coconut Roll and sire Wyatt Earp and will live out his days contributing to the Calgary Stampede breeding program.
