Reining’s leading sire, Hollywood Dun It, is on a countdown to offspring earnings of $3 million. The stallion, owned by a partnership consisting of trainer Tim McQuay and non-pro rider Jennifer Easton, has offspring earnings of $2.2 million and counting.

The 1983 dun, by Hollywood Jac 86 and out of Blossom Berry by Dun Berry, became only the third sire to join the ranks of the National Reining Horse Association million dollar sires at 12, the youngest to reach that mark.

Quickly, his offspring earnings grew. By July 1997, he became the leading sire of reining horses when his total reached $1.7 million. It then accelerated to $2 million in April. With the recent NRHA futurity totals yet to be officially counted, the number will go higher.

On December 2, the final night of the NRHA futurity, the association honored Hollywood Dun It with a ceremony recognizing him as the first reining sire to go over the $2 million mark. McQuay and Easton were presented with a commissioned C.R. Morrison bronze of Hollywood Dun It for being the first and only sire to have over $2 million in offspring earnings.

According to McQuay, the horse’s offspring earnings will be tracked and reported on McQuay’s website. The owner of the horse that goes over the $3 million mark will receive a free breeding to Hollywood Dun It.
