A flashy filly from a family stacked with National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) futurity and derby non-pro champions topped the 2020 Legacy Reining Breeders Sale.
Winning bidders CMJT Partners threw down a top bid of $100,000 for Ms Custom Dunit, a buckskin daughter of the late Colonels Smoking Gun (Gunner) and out of Custom Made Dunit (by Hollywood Dun It) at the sale Sept. 26 in Aubrey, Texas.
Ms Custom Dunit
Consigned by McQuay Stables, Ms Custom Dunit is a maternal sibling to 10 winners of more than $674,438.
Like the sales-topping 2019 filly, the majority of Custom Made Dunit’s foals were sired by Gunner.
That made Ms Custom Dunit a full sister to several money earners, the most successful being The Run For A Million Co-Champion Custom Made Gun ($419,985), NRHA Futurity Non-Pro Co-Champion Customized Gunner ($96,526) and NRHA Futurity Non-Pro Reserve Champion Customized My Gun ($83,866).
At $90,000, the second-highest seller at the Legacy Reining Breeders Sale was a 2021 embryo consigned as part of the Cardinal Reining Horses Reduction Sale. Sired by Gunner, the embryo is out of the late Equi-Stat Elite $1 Million Producer Dun It For Chex.
One of only two NRHA Million Dollar Dams and a member of the association’s Hall of Fame, Dun It For Chex is the dam of earners of more than $1,078,231 as of sale time, according to Equi-Stat.
Her leading earners are NRHA Futurity Level 4 Open Co-Reserve Champion Dun It For Whizkey ($259,120, by Topsail Whiz), NRHA Derby Level 4 Open Reserve Champion Starbucks Sidekick ($195,503, by Smart Starbuck) and the embryo’s full brother, multiple futurity and derby Open finalist Masked Gun ($94,583, by Gunner).
Roxanne Koepsell was the winning bidder on the embryo.
The embryo was one of multiple offspring of the great mare offered during the reduction sale. Rick Christen had the top bid of $52,000 on 2018 mare Outlaw Blondie (by Inferno Sixty Six) and Frank Constantini plunked down $15,000 for 2017 stallion Hollywoodstarame (by Star Spangled Whiz). A 2021 embryo by A Sparkling Vintage was a pass out at $50,000.
