During the past decade, more than 25 horses started at Alexander Training Stables have advanced on to become Open Futurity finalists. Among Alexander’s greatest prospects were NCHA Futurity Champions, Chiquita’s Pistol, Dainty’s Playgirl, San Tule Freckles, and High Brow CD; Reserve Futurity Champions, Mr Beamon, Peptocandy, Desires Little Rex, Smart Kitty RG, Hydrive Cat; Derby Champion, Sue, and many more. The two-year-olds started by Alexander have gone on to earn more than $8,000,000 and that number is still growing!

Alexander points out, however, that a horse’s success has much to do with the rider that finishes and shows it, and is honored by the many great horsemen that have carried his two-year-olds on to the winner’s circle, such as, Ronnie Rice, Tag Rice, Austin Shepard, and numerous others.

Gerald Alexander is recognized by most cutters, as one of the industry’s best at breaking and starting two-year-old quarter horses on cattle. His career dates back 27 years, when in the early 1980’s he focused on training cutting horses. His training program has proven successful year after year by the number of quality cutting horses it has turned out.
The program focuses on creating a solid foundation of a well broke horse that responds and handles well, one that will continue to build on that foundation when started on cattle.

Each year, Alexander offers a string of high quality sale horses on behalf of his cliental, including NCHA Open and Non-Pro Futurity prospects as well as small futurity horses. The sale horses are well bred with a solid foundation of working cattle. In fact, many winners, such as Desire’s Little Rex and Desire's Katrina were purchased through Alexander Training Stables as two-year olds.

Alexander trains out of Silverado on the Brazos in Weatherford, Texas. He and his wife, Kaye, moved to Weatherford in 2005. Alexander noted that Kaye’s knowledge of training, along with her critical eye, has helped him succeed and played an important role in modifying his program. “She helped me figure this out,” Gerald explained. “She can see a world of stuff that you can’t feel. She could probably train one better than me. I’m real fortunate to have her.”
