This gelding is by Rio Starlight who is a 15.2 hand 1,200 lb buckskin with a great confirmation to go with his great pedigree. He is by Grays Starlight, an all time Leading Sire producing over $10 million in cutting (NCHA), reined cow horse (NRCHA) and reining horses (NRHA).  In 2007 Grays Starlight was the Leading Sire of Broodmares sold in both NRHA and NRCHA sales and the second leading sire of broodmares sold in NCHA sales. Grays Starlight is by AQHA/NCHA Hall of Fame Inductee Peppy San Badger, the all time number 2 sire $28 Million of performance horses. Rio is out of Smokin Kitty Rio the 1993 NCHA Open Reserve World Champion with earnings exceeding $65.000. Smokin Kitty Rio is by NCHA and NRCHA greats Smokin JoseDoc Quixote and AQHA/NRHA Hall of Fame Mr Gun Smoke.

Rio has his ROM in Reining and qualified for the 2004 AQHA world show in reining. Rio was being shown in the working cow horse events and has won multiple events, qualifying for the 2006 AQHA world show; he was also be shown at the Working Cow Horse World Show.

He is out of a mare that goes back to Three Bars, Waggoner, Leo San and King.  His dam is a soggy black mare with heavy bone structure and mounds of muscle.  This gelding is bound to be a strong horse with a big motor and intelligent mind.

This gelding is one of the nicest looking horses you will ever see.  He is loaded with chrome from head to toe with 4 white stockings and a blaze white face.  He is stout and compact and has a typical Grays Starlight back end.  He is so well built and quick that he is a fantastic candidate for cutting.  He will shortly be ready to go to a new home and be in desperate need of a job.
