National Football League Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw has sold his Thackerville, Oklahoma ranch — nine years after Dallas’ Icon Global Group first placed it on the market.
“The decision-making process to finally selling has been a long and winding road,” Bradshaw said in a prepared statement. “Along the way, we have been presented with and considered many great offers, opportunities, and proposals. However, between my own schedule, the TV series, my family’s changing needs, our horse and cattle business, as well as many other commitments, neither timing nor opportunity was ever on our side or completely aligned.”
The 744-acre livestock ranch is about 90 minutes north of Dallas, just across the Texas state line. It was listed for $22.5 million, but a final sale price was not disclosed.
In addition to being used to breed world champion halter-class quarter horses, E Entertainment Television filmed “The Bradshaw Bunch” at the ranch for two seasons from 2020-2022.
The news release noted that the NFL legend and his wife have moved south to Texas, though it did not disclose where.
The new ownership is a joint venture between Billy and Suzzone Franks and Chad and Tiffeny Beus.
“We chose this location and facility because of its very central geographic location to all points within the region, especially central to Texas and Oklahoma,” Chad Beus said. “This is important to our clientele and to the expansion requirements of our business.”
The new owners have re-branded the ranch as Red River Equine to re-develop and market the property as a large-scale breeding, training and sales-preparation location, catering to the American quarter horse industry.
Bradshaw, Fox TV’s NFL Sunday host, and his wife, Tammy, owned their ranch for 20 years. The ranch includes an 8,600-square-foot, six-bedroom house with a pool, and several stocked fishing lakes and ponds, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Owned by Bernard Uechtritz, Icon Global led a team in 2016 that sold W.T. Waggoner Ranch in North Texas, one the largest in the country, to billionaire Stan Kroenke, the newspaper reported. The husband of Walmart heiress Ann Walton Kroenke, he owns the Los Angeles Rams, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and the Premiere League’s Arsenal F.C.
