Grey Tango was imported in 1971 by Bill Sieberhagen for Basjan Steyn. She had a foal with her by Stonewall Starfire. He  was called Starfire Rhythm and shortly after arriving in South Africa his name was changed to Mr. USA.  Fanie Naude of Vida Saddle Horse Stud bought Mr USA and the rest is history. Mr USA with Andre Maskell won the S.A. Grand Champion Fine Harness in 1981.  In 1997  Andre had another Fine Harness Grand Champion.  This time he won it with a grandson of Mr USA, Yoko's Tormado.

Few stallions in South Africa had a greater effect on the local Saddle Horse industry than Yokozuna! He was bred by Fanie Naude's Vida stud and is out of Mr USA by Cameo's Truly Fair (Cameo's Farewell X Fair Ensign). He was then bought by Andre Maskell who trained and bred with him. He will not be remembered as a show horse, but as a breeding stallion he was remarkable! He topped the General Sire Rating for many years while he was still alive. An untimely death in 1992 deprived the Saddle Horse Industry of a grand stallion whose breeding career just started. His dam, Cameo's Truly Fair was a foal out of the prolific mare Fair Ensign. Yokozuna crossed well with any bloodline, but it is no coincidence that two of his S.A. Grand Champions were out of Supreme O' Lee mares, namely Now or Never (dam of Never on Sunday) and Sarah Lee (dam of Yoko's Tornado).
