Fred Hooper's unique Florida bloodlines pair with distinctly California stock in an equine East-meets-West story. Owned by a partnership headed by Ed Bernstein, Brian Greenspun, and
trainer Bruce Headley (which the three co-bred the gelding in
partnership with Irwin Molasky), M One Rifle is one of only a few
stakes winners sired by stakes-placed One Man Army
, a Kentucky-bred whose pedigree screams “Florida” – or, more specifically, “Hooper,” as in Fred W. Hooper.
