Bato is one of the biggest up-and-coming stars in the Kennel. A grandkid of Silver, he brings more enthusiasm to the team than any other dog in the Kennel. He ran on a puppy team with my handler as a Yearling and showed he had what it takes to go 1,000 miles, and in 2015 as a two-year-old, he shined on my winning Yukon Quest team. Always ready to go, Bato is the biggest cheerleader on the team. Barking and banging the harness is what he loves to do and his energy is contagious in the team. Even though he is one of the smaller dogs on the team, he is one of the most confident dogs and will not be pushed around by anybody. He and his sibling Chica are part of a Mexican themed litter, and he often reminds me of a Mexican gangster because of his huge personality. Bato was again a superstar in both the Yukon Quest and Iditarod in 2016, and the training and knowledge he gained is going to make him a superstar in the upcoming 2017 race season. I am extremely excited to have him on the team and know that he is going to be a huge part of our success in the future.
