Appy “Shines” at the NRBC

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 AT 12:04 PM

Congratulations goes out to Matt Mills riding Frank E. Marley III’s ApHC Stallion, Some Kinda Shine, to the #12 spot in the Level 4 NRBC Open Classic on April 23, 2011. 

Some Kinda Shine made reining history becoming the FIRST AND ONLY APPALOOSA to be an NRBC Open Finalist and finish in the Top 15.  “Frankie” rolled into the Great Southwest Equestrian Arena with a roar from the crowd and laid down an epic stop with Matt Mills on board.The “Jackie Robinson” of Appaloosas accomplished more in that run than any other Appaloosa in reining history:

  • 225.5 Highest mark by an Appaloosa in NRHA History
  • $19,000.00 winnings – most won by an Applaloosa in one run
  • First Appaloosa to make (and compete) in NRBC Open Finals

 Next stop, NRHA Derby in June.  The quarter horse world fears the spots…. 

The National Reining Breeders Classic  is, above all, an arena of dreams… where only the sky’s the limit on achievement and tremendous equine athletes reach for the promise of their parentage and soar to the stars. Exceptional performance gains them admittance into the next level – where they, by realizing their birthrights, will earn the honor of becoming the sires and dams of the next generation.

Where the process begins again. The circle of life – reining style.
