Hollywood Dun It Approaches $5 Million Milestone

Two years after his death, the National Reining Horse Associationís All Time Leading Sire is still breaking records and a new one looms large in the near future.

Hollywood Dun It is poised to move over the $5 Million mark in foal earnings and with the spring events approaching, the milestone could happen any time. By March 15, the earnings for Hollywood Dun It were just over $40,000 away from the $5 million figure.

As the leading All Time Sire and one of only two-ever NRHA $4 Million sires, Hollywood Dun Itís place in history is secure, if he never attained another laurel. Since 1992, when his first foals came of age, the beautiful buckskin has dominated the reining industry, with foals winning every major title in the reining world Ė and a plethora of other championships in other disciplines.

Tim McQuay, who along with his wife, Colleen and partner Jennifer Easton, owned Hollywood Dun It, was moved by news of the stallionís impending accomplishment.

ďItís just amazing that his foals are still having such an impact on the reining industry,Ē he said.

Itís not just reining where Hollywood Dun Itís foals continue to excel. One son, Wild Card Dun It, (X Colonel C Hermosa) is was the 2006 AQHA High Point Junior All Around Horse.

And with frozen semen, the National Reining Horse Associationís Leading All Time Rider feels that Hollywood Dun Itís impact on the industry will continue. ďI think Iíll be able to show Hollywood Dun It foals as long as Iím able to ride!Ē he chuckles.

The McQuays have long credited the breeders, owners and trainers who have promoted and ridden Hollywood Dun It get for their part in his success and theyíve created an award for the horse that moves him over the $5 million mark.

The owner of the horse that propels Hollywood Dun It over $5 million in foal earnings will receive a special limited edition bronze of Hollywood Dun It. The bronze is one in a series of 8 created by Marita McMillan. The first bronze was presented by the McQuays to the National Reining Horse Association, and is kept in the NRHA Offices as a perpetual trophy, inscribed each year with the name of the top sire of the futurity.

Interestingly, one of the events that could propel Dun It across the $5 million line is the 10th Anniversary National Reining Breeders Classic. The McQuays were part of the team that created the NRBC and this event has long been a site for Hollywood Dun It foals to excel. Heís been the leading sire at the event numerous times. Itís also often been the site of propelling riders and horses over milestone earnings accomplishments.

ďWeíll have to have a party wherever it is Ė whether at the NRBC or the next month at the Derby,Ē said McQuay.

The National Reining Breeders Classic is slated for April 16-22 at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas. The NRHA Derby is set for May 14-19.
