2017 Bay Stallion

2017 Bay Stallion  (SOLD Special thanks to Travis Maughn of Mt. Sterling, UT)





This flashy bay colt 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 mare has produced some of the nicest colts we have had the pleasure of owning. Two full brothers to this colt have gone on to homes where the owners have been offered over $6000 as started 2 and 3-year-olds. This colt is bound to be equally as nice and has the classic chrome to match.

He is loaded with chrome from head to toe with 4 white stockings and a star on his face. He is stout and compact and has a typical Grays Starlight huge back end. He is so well built and quick that he is a fantastic candidate for cutting, reining or working cow horse if your eyes are set on the show ring. If your passion lies elsewhere this colt can truly be as versatile as you need. His full sister is a 4H rockstar and is being shown by a 15-year-old in working ranch horse and western. As a 3-year-old his full brother is quiet enough that beginner riders are learning basic riding skills. He will shortly be ready to go to a new home and will be in desperate need of a job as a 2-year-old.
