OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – In 2008, NRHA Hall of Fame inductee Topsail Whiz reached the top of the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) all-time sire list with total offspring earnings of $5,527,700 surpassing Hollywood Dun It’s mark of $5,494,100. The following year, the stallion achieved another NRHA milestone by becoming the first sire in NRHA history to have offspring earnings in excess of $6 million. Today according to current NRHA records, the sire has achieved another first – he is the first NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire.
Bob Loomis’ Topsail Whiz (Topsail Cody x Jeanie Whiz Bar by Cee Red) is an NRHA Hall of Famer who earned $49,865 in the NRHA show ring. His successes included an All American Quarter Horse Congress Junior Reining Championship, 1991 NRHA Lazy E Classic Open Championship and a third place finish in the 1990 NRHA Open Futurity. Last fall, the reining community mourned the loss of this great stallion.
