Breed a National Reining Horse Association World Champion to one of the sport's all-time leading products, and what have you got? Why, a palomino overo stallion named Big Chex to Cash, who has earned over $200,000 and several national reining championships to boot.
Foaled in 2002, Big Chex, who is owned by the 23 Partnership of San Marcos, California, seemed almost destined to become a reining legend. He certainly had the breeding! His sire, Nu Chex to Cash, earned more reining points than any other horse in American Quarter Horse Association history, and was the only horse to earn AQHA High Point honors in both reining and working cowhorse in the same year. Big Chex's dam, Snip O Gun, has thrown many top reining horses, including Big Chex's award-winning full brothers Hot Smokin Chex and Flash Me a Chex.
Big Chex's talent became evident under the training of European rider Andrea Fappani, who showed the stallion himself. If anyone knew how to get Big Chex to deliver explosive stops and lightning turnarounds, it was Fappani. They got off to a spectacular start in 2005, winning the West Coast Spectacular Futurity and the NRHA Futurity Reserve Championship.
Also that year, Big Chex to Cash was the Equi-Stat All-Age Leading Reining Money-Earner, the Equi-Stat Reserve Champion 3-Year-Old All-Divisions Money-Earner, and the winner of an NRHA Open Futurity Bonus.
The following year, Big Chex was fifth in the Las Vegas Reining Classic Open Derby. He returned to the spotlight in 2007, clinching the NRA Open Derby Reserve Championship and the Reining by the Bay Derby Co-Championship.
Today, Big Chex to Cash stands at stud through Fappani Performance Horses in San Marcos. The stallion's first foals arrived in 2007, and hopes are high that they will continue their sire's winning tradition.
