NRCHA and Ward Ranch Announce 2009 Raffle Colt

It's that time again. The National Reined Cow Horse Association and the Ward Ranch have announced that the 2009 Raffle Colt, generously donated by the Ward Ranch, is a 2-year-old by Reminics Pep and out of Dual Jazanic, named Fresnonic.

The raffle colt has been an institution for the NRCHA, and the winner is drawn annually during the Open finals of the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity. The colt comes with a paid entry fee for the 2010 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, for the Open, Non Pro, or Amateur.

As always, the raffle colt represents the genetic excellence of the Ward Ranch. Reminics Pep, a son of Reminic out of Peppy Remedy, has lifetime earnings over $135,000. He was the 1998 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Champion, and then went on to be the Open Co-Reserve Champion at the River Front Farms NRCHA Derby. He was also successful in National Cutting Horse Association competition, making the semi-finals at the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association Futurity, and was a finalist at the Gold Coast winter Championship. He was also the 1999 Arizona Sun Circuit Open Derby Champion.

The donation cost for a chance is $10, and that donation supports the annual NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity and NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Horse Sale incentive. For more information on the raffle colt, please contact the NRCHA Office at 580-759-4949.

The Ward Ranch was founded in 1972 by NRCHA Hall of Fame member Greg Ward and his family. Ward Ranch was built physically and genetically around the much-acclaimed mare Fililinic, one of the industry's leading producers. She was the dam of 1972 Futurity Champion Sugarnic, and grandmother of 1981 Champion Sugar Remedy, and many other futurity finalists are credited to this mare.

In 1998, the Ward Ranch expanded with the acquisition of a breeding facility on the Kings River in Kingsburg, California.

The National Reined Cow Horse Association, celebrating its 60th Anniversary in 2009, is the governing body of cow horse competition, is responsible for

promoting the sport, insuring high standards of competition and educating

members and the public about the history and tradition of the cow horse.
