For over twenty years the historic Ward Ranch has teamed with the National Reined Cow Horse Association to offer a golden opportunity for one lucky winner!
If you have ever wanted to own a cow horse with some of the most revered lineage in the reined cow horse industry this could be your lucky year if you purchase the winning ticket! The price to buy or raise a horse of this caliber is high - but a ticket to be in the drawing for Prima Madonna, a 2-year-old filly by Smart Little Pepinic, is only a $10 donation. The winner will be drawn on Saturday, September 29, during the Open Finals of the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity.
The raffle filly has been an institution for the NRCHA, and Prima Madonna comes with a paid entry fee for the 2013 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity for the Open, Non Pro, or Amateur.
Prima Madonna is by Smart Little Pepinic (Smart Little Uno x Pepinic) out of Prima Nick (Primo Peppy x Reminics Bar Girl).
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. There is no limit on the number of tickets purchased. This is a great opportunity to win a horse from some of the best reined cow horse bloodlines available. 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 Fillinic, one of the industry's leading producers. She was the dam of 1972 Futurity Champion Sugarnic, and grandmother of the 1981 Champion Sugar Remedy and many other Futurity finalists are credited to this mare. Her son, Reminic, is the sire of Reminics Pep, and the 1986 Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion Smokinic. Fillinic's grandson Master Remedy is the sire of Otoe Master, Master Checks, Masteroani, and Master Rani Chex.
In 1998, the Ward Ranch expanded with the acquisition of a breeding facility on the Kings River in Kingsburg, California. For information on the Ward Ranch, visit the web site at www.wardriverranch.com.
