Italian Barrel Racer Sets His Sights on THE AMERICAN
January 24, 2018
Giovanni Adamo is the top barrel horse trainer in Italy and has more than 50 horses in training. He is 56 years old and chasing his dream of competing at RFD-TV’S THE AMERICAN on his 8 year old home bred, raised and trained black stallion, “FR Firewater Request.” The process of getting his special stallion to the U.S. began on October 29th and came with a $17,000 price tag. He spent 10 days in Amsterdam before flying to New York. He was then in quarantine in New York for 43 days before being transported to Whitesboro, Texas where he then got a couple weeks rest before they started getting him conditioned to compete again.
