May 10, 2007 — Hollywood Dun It, the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) All-Time Leading Sire, and his offspring have surpassed $5 million in earnings. Hollywood Dun It’s offspring earnings now total $5,022,984.98.
The earnings of Hollywood Dun It’s offspring have broken one record after another and now the legendary sire has become the very first NRHA Five Million Sire. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact horse that put Hollywood Dun It over the $5 million mark because of the numerous offspring competing at events. The search for this will continue and could be announced at a later date.
Now deceased, the celebrated sire was owned by McQuay/Easton LLC, a partnership comprised of NRHA Two Million Dollar Rider Tim McQuay and his wife, Colleen, of Tioga, Texas, along with Jennifer Easton of St. Mary’s Point, Minn. Colleen McQuay expressed her appreciation to those breeders and trainers who placed their trust in Hollywood Dun It’s bloodline. “The reason ‘Dun It’ has been able to reach this milestone is because of the mare owners and the people who have shown his foals and for that we are grateful,” she said.
Hollywood Dun It’s foals have won many prestigious reining events including the NRHA Futurity, the NRHA Derby and Superstakes, the All-American Quarter Horse Congress Futurity and the National Reining Breeders Classic. They’ve qualified and won gold medals in FEI, USET and USEF competition and earned breed association World Championships as well.
Hollywood Dun It (Hollywood Jac 86 x Blossom Berry) died in 2005 at the age of 22. At that time, Tim McQuay said the decision to put him down was a difficult one. To this day, two years later, Hollywood Dun It’s stall remains empty as a memorial to the beautiful buckskin sire.
