erry Christmas to all of our readers and friends! What an exciting month December always is around here! We have our Annual Stallion Calendars going out in the mail (you may already have yours) and of course there is preparing for Christmas around the house.

We’ve had an eventful past few months. Some of you already know and have met our special guest. We have been enjoying the company of an Italian exchange student from Rome since the beginning of the school year. Her name is Pauline (pronounced Paulina) and she goes by “Pauli.” She recently turned seventeen. We are enjoying introducing her to western riding, quarter horse racing and barrel racing. In Italy she rode English and Jumping, but we hope to have her running barrels by the spring! I think she is enjoying herself. Our kids (Garrett, 14 and Gracie, 10) are loving having an older sister. Pauli’s mother, Tanja, came to visit us over the Thanksgiving holiday and we got to share our family traditions with them both. Of course, Italy does not celebrate Thanksgiving so this was all new to them. I believe they were both overwhelmed with all of the food! Tanja and Pauli helped us decorate the house for Christmas and Tanja can even can say that she rode an accomplished barrel horse while she was here. (We won’t tell that she only rode at a walk while Gracie led her around on Butler Did It.) We are now looking forward to the Christmas season and sharing our American Christmas with Pauli.

Tanja has flown back to the warmer weather of Italy and Pauli is here to experience an Indiana winter with horses. She is in for a surprise. Hopefully it isn’t too bad of a winter for her (and us too!) For those of you planning your winter weekends, don’t forget about the Indiana Stallion Service Auction at the beginning of January. It is always a great time and a chance to get some great prices on breedings to exceptional stallions. Take note of the Trainer’s Seminar taking place that same weekend. For those of you who have been on the fence about Indiana Quarter Horse Racing, this will answer a lot of your questions. Until next month.........remember the REASON for the SEASON and Remember to count your blessings on horseback! God Bless and Ride Safe, Christa Conway

A Little “Barrel Talk”

We have included a little Barrel Talk for you this month. Check it out....................... and remember to visit to read more Barrel Talk on-line!

LYSINE Slidin’ N Posted 2012-11-30 1:38 PM Location: Texas Those of you that feed Lysine....what kind do you feed, any specific brand or something from the local co-op? How much do you feed? Do you feed it year round or seasonal? Reason you add it in or have had it help with? thanks!

My young ones get it for the immune system support and for extra protein building (L-lysine is not present in high enough quantity in horse feed). My broodmares get it instead of the Rhino vaccines, and my prospects and competition horses get it for immune support and protection from Rhino while traveling. Also, herpes attacks can make a horse really sore in the loin area. I feed ADM brand, and start with a loading dose of 1/2 cup twice daily for 30 days, then 1/4 cup twice daily continuously.

JK91 Elite Veteran Posts: 792 Location: Where its cold &hot I feed it, no specific brand really. Just get it from the local feed mill. I feed about 2 tbsp every feeding all year. I feed it to help build a topline. Its done wonders for me...

quikchik Veteran Posts: 140 Those that buy from the feed mill, about how much do you pay? I have fed it in the past, but ordered it online. I have a horse here now that I think could use some.

sbarmfarm Expert Posts: 1317 Location: Holdenville, OK I buy it in a 50lb sack from Shawnee Feed Center. I feed it year round. Lysine is an amino acid that is one of the building blocks of protein. Benefits - growth, developement, tissue maintenance, milk production, and supports collagen production for bones etc.. A 1100lb horse requires - idle - 23 grams and intense training - 46 grams. (1 ounce = 28.3 grams) @ 4 months of age - 30 grams @ long yearling - 50+ grams. Hope this helps =) horsedoc33 Elite Veteran Posts: 1066 Location: Michigan I use L-lysine in my horses, and recommend it to my clients horses that have issues with respiratory herpes, and for their pregnant mares.

Page 4

roanrobey Color Coordinator Posts: 18790 Location: Oklahoma I used to feed one of my geldings it. I really dont remember how much I fed as it was years ago. I think it was somewhere around 2 oz. I can still remember the silly look I got from the feed mill when I asked to buy it in bulk. horsedoc33 Right now in my area a 55# bag of ADM L-lysine is running $125. I know there are some places that sell 10# for $40 or more (quite the rip off). RoadToVegas Regular Posts: 50 I feed the horsemans edge 12% protein pellets on the front of the bag it says with added Lysine should I be adding Lysine also or would that be too much? trickster j Too busy outside! Posts: 4227 Location: Wyoming I have been feeding about 1/2 cup a day for a little over a

month to my appendix horse because I suspected he may be a herpes candidate. I have to say his topline has improved dramatically! I never would have thought the lysine had helped with that until I read this. Now I am going to feed it to an old rope horse we have who could use alot of help in that area also! Thanks for this info! fifteenflat Quack Quack Woodle Woodle Posts: 7431 Location: Texas I feed horsemans edge and add lysine per my vets instructions. I buy the granules at the feed store. Started adding it to my grain about 3 years ago and haven’t had a snotty nose since. For those that do not know, lysine is An amino acid and a natural antiviral. I have several family members with fever blister problems and they will take it to kill one. sbarmfarm Expert Posts: 1317 Location: Holdenville, OK Mine is either 50 or 55lb bag and $97. It will last me at least 6 months or more.. the brand is Ajinomoto Heartland... horsedoc33 You can not feed too much lysine. The feeds do not have enough in them. It is an amino acid, so what is not used by herpes virus, immune system, protein building, etc is just safely urinated out.

News Thoroughbred Incentive Program Approved for 2013

adoptions contact the Putnamville Correctional Facility or call Barbara Holcomb at (765) 653-8441, ext. 342.

The Jockey Club’s Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.), which encourages the retraining of Thoroughbreds into other disciplines upon completion of careers in racing or breeding, has been renewed for the 2013 show season.

Dedicated to protecting and promoting the interests of equines in Indiana, the IHCF awarded the $2,500 grant to support TRF’s vital work on 2nd careers, adoption and rehabilitation for racehorses. The non-profit IHCF created the Racing Legacy Fund with financial support from the Indiana Horsemen’s Benevolent & Protective Association and the Indiana Standardbred Association to protect the interests of Indiana racehorses in all stages of their careers.

“T.I.P. sponsors Thoroughbred classes and awards at horse shows, horse trials and other events to motivate riders to showcase their Thoroughbreds and to remind people of the versatility of the Thoroughbred as a sport horse,” said Kristin Leshney, legal associate with The Jockey Club. “The Jockey Club also sponsors a Thoroughbred of the Year Award for Thoroughbreds that excel outside of the show ring and a Young Rider of the Year Award.” During a pilot program in 2012, $100,000 was committed to T.I.P. for horse show sponsorships and non-competition awards, and 190 horse shows signed up for T.I.P. sponsorship. To date, more than 1,700 Thoroughbreds have competed for T.I.P. prize money, ribbons, and saddle pads. “We were delighted with the level of interest and participation in the T.I.P. program in 2012, and, with greater awareness of it now, 2013 should be even more successful,” Leshney said. The deadline for shows to apply for T.I.P. classes and awards for 2013 is December 15, 2012. Applications received prior to December 15 might be considered for awards prior to the deadline. Only shows being held from March 2013 through December 2013 will be considered for sponsorship. For more information, go to or visit T.I.P. on Facebook at and share stories and photos about your Thoroughbred.

IHCF Racing Legacy Fund Grant Will Help Indiana Racehorses and Inmates Learn Skills for Their Future Putnamville, Indiana - The Indiana Horse Council Foundation, Inc. (IHCF), has

awarded $2,500 as its first-ever Racing Legacy Fund grant to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, Inc., Putnamville Correctional Facility (TRF).

TRF’s Putnamville Equine Management Program gives low-risk, non-violent offenders the opportunity to work with racehorses that are retired or no longer competitive to rehabilitate and retrain them for new careers. The horses are then offered for private adoption to be used for another discipline such as trail riding, equestrian sports, backyard pleasure or even therapeutic use. The program saves many horses from an uncertain future while simultaneously teaching the offenders compassion, responsibility and marketable skills they can use after their release to become contributing members of society. In addition to cleaning stalls, feeding and bonding with the horses, offenders receive classroom instruction on Farrier Science, nutrition, equine law and business. Barbara Holcomb, the equine instructor at the facility, believes the program changes lives – the horses’ and the inmates’. “It is so great to have the support of the IHFC and many of the horse people around the state! Every penny that is taken in by TRF goes to the care and well-being of these exracers, who more than likely would have ended up a less than favorable fate,” said Holcomb, thanking IHCF for the grant. TRF, a non-profit organization, receives no funding from the state for the equestrian program at the Putnamville Correctional Facility. It is the only equestrian program for prisoners in Indiana. To donate or inquire about

Racing Legacy Fund grants are offered to eligible applicants for programs promoting the welfare and safety of racehorses, providing adoption or retirement opportunities for racehorses, retraining racehorses for second careers, assisting organizations dedicated to the use of retired horses in equine therapy for human rehabilitation, and encouraging participation or involvement in the ownership or breeding of racehorses. The IHCF is currently accepting applications for the next Racing Legacy Fund grant period. The next submission deadline is March 1, 2013. The Racing Legacy Fund grant guidelines and application can be found online at (under “Equine News”).

Kentucky Horse Council Celebrates 40th Anniversary at Annual Meeting Lexington, KY, November 18, 2012 – The Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) celebrated its 40th Anniversary as an organization at their Annual Meeting held at Shaker Village in Mercer County.

Past Presidents of KHC who attended the meeting included Mr. Bill Hilliard, President from 1995-1996, Ms. Judy Robin, President in 2000 and Ms. Anita Magan Oh, President in 2003. The event was attended by over 65 members, which followed a morning trail ride on the Shaker Village property. The day was a sunny crisp fall day, providing the perfect environment for both the trail ride and the visit to Shaker Village for the 40th anniversary. Anna Zinkhon, KHC Board President, commented on the event, “The Kentucky Horse Council has been a steadfast supporter of our Kentucky horse industry for 40 years, and we could not have been as strong as we are now without the dedication of all past presidents and board members. We owe them a debt of gratitude for all of their contributions since 1972.” The day’s events, in addition to the trail ride, featured Dr. Mats Troeddson, Director of the Gluck Equine Research Center, discussing current equine research activities and the need for communications between researchers, veterinarians and horsemen; Ginny Grulke, Executive Director, reviewing the 2012 KHC activities and a horse industry update, and elections of new board members for 2013. All enjoyed a 40th Anniversary cake. KHC is now accepting memberships for 2013.

Good Things DO Happen By: Tammie Hiatt of

With a late start to her 2012 rodeo season, Terri Robertson didn’t know if she had enough time to secure a seat in the IPRA’s top 15. “I didn’t start going until June and just didn’t know if it was possible, but things just started falling into place,” said Terri. Robertson is currently sitting 13th in the world standings and is looking forward to planning her first trip to the International Finals Rodeo in January. “I’m extremely excited,” said Terri. “My whole family is planning to make the trip with me.” Things have been a little uphill for the Birch Run, MI cowgirl; she contracted West Nile in September of 2011 and was diagnosed as hav-

awesome crowd that was there. It was a big pattern and I won my first really big check. Then in August I was at Chillicothe, OH and it was the first rodeo I had won and it was a 13 second pattern. It was a real turning point in my mind about my horse; she could win in the big pens and in the small pens. I always thought it was someone else that had a horse that could do that. I felt like maybe good things can happen to a mother of three girls from Michigan,” she said.

When Terri and her 7 year-old mare, Sheza, hit the road in June things started looking up. The duo picked up over $7,000 between the end of June and the first of October. “I love this horse,” remarked Terri. “I wish I had 10 more standing out here just like her. She’s a granddaughter of Firewater Flit and out of a Bully Bullion stud named Draws A Crowd. Her mother was a proven barrel mare. I’ve had her two years and this was her first year to go to the pro rodeos. “ Eligible “ Indiana Sired “, SSA 2012 Fee Private Treaty

“I bought her from Lori Fackler in Ohio. Lori and I have been friends for a long time and she had Sheza, whose registered name is Shezafirendraw, ready to start seasoning. She had taken her to about four shows when I got her.” “She’s really got a great personality and likes a lot of attention. She’s been easy to season at the rodeos; nothing there seems to bother her, the crowds, fireworks, nothing like that. I like to trail ride her a lot and that’s a different story. She’s scared of things that don’t move, like tree stumps!” “I kind of had an “ah ha moment” about Sheza recently. In July, I entered Holstein, ON; I remember that rodeo so vividly because of the

“Since that moment my confidence level has really shot up. I now know I can enter anywhere and be confident we are capable of winning no matter what size the pen is. She’s really got a heart of gold, she tries so hard the entire run,” said Terri. “I’ve never had a horse like her.” “I’m hoping that my family will rodeo with me next year in the IPRA. They have been going to a circuit in Canada. My husband, Travis, team ropes and my daughters, Casey 17, Carson 14, and Colby 12, all run barrels. Travis is my rock; I have to give him lots of credit. I couldn’t do it without his support and help.” “I am a stay at home mom who tries to keep up with our three girls and 11 head of horses. We do some training but mostly on our own horses. Travis will ride some outside horses now and then but we always have enough of our own to keep us busy,” Terri comments. “I am hoping we have another mild winter like we did last year so it is easy to keep Sheza in shape. We only had snow two times last year. But if we don’t, we have a friend that lives about a half hour away that has an indoor arena and if I have to, I’ll haul her over there everyday,” said Terri. “I’m just so excited about the IFR!”

QHRAI December Newsletter The calendar says December, but the thermometer hasn’t gotten the message yet. I’m not going to be the spoiler to tell it, so I will keep enjoying the 60 degree weather as long as it wants to hang around!! We have had a great year of races, and a promise for even greater things next year. The sale of Indiana Down’s to Centaur will most certainly create some new opportunities for racing next year. Your QHRAI Executive Officers are attending meetings and will be sharing information to our horsemen as soon as it is available. Race programs will be presented at the December Horse Racing Commission meeting for review and possibly approval. When this is officially approved, we will pass the information along. The QHRAI Speed Sale was a great success!! 97 horses went through the ring; 54 sold for an average price of nearly $2,500. New changes were announced including a $5,000 bonus to the consignor of the horse that earns the most money in 2013 and a 2 year old race offered exclusively to horses that go through the QHRAI Speed Sale Ring, so there is plenty of incentive to participate in the sale. It takes a lot of people to put on a sale like this and I want to thank everyone who was an important part of making it a success. QHRAI sponsored a Turkey Give a way in Anderson on November 19th. We helped 100 households and nearly 400 people in those homes. It was really a neat opportunity to participate in this event and I am thankful that the QHRAI has such a good group of people willing to dedicate time and imagination to organizing an event like this. It was touching and left a great feeling in our hearts that we could give this little gift to people who both needed and appreciated it in the city of Anderson, that has been such a welcoming host for “The Fastest Horses in the World” at the fall race meet at Hoosier Park. The Stallion Service Auction has been set for January 5, 2013 and will coincide with the QHRAI annual meeting and awards banquet. We are planning two-days of exciting events this year, and are offering a trainer’s education seminar and new owner’s profitability conference on Friday prior to the stallion service auction and awards banquet on Saturday. Take a look at the schedule in this magazine. If you are planning to get your trainer’s license in 2013, the IHRC requires that you must have attended one Trainers Seminar and if you are thinking about owning a race horse or are already an owner, come join us to learn about the great opportunities there are to race in Indiana.

in Tallahassee, Florida is going to be the guest speaker at our SSA banquet and at the conclusion of the awards presentation at this year’s banquet, we are having a “Post Parade Party”. We want horsemen to hang around after the awards program and visit and reminisce about the past year and boast about your prospects for 2013. QHRAI is providing the band, door prizes and pizza for this event after the main event!! We hope you plan to join us this year. Special QHRAI room rates are available through the Crowne Plaza Hotel. This year there is a minimal $20 charge for the buffet with the purchase of a membership. You can purchase both at the door, but please RSVP to me by Monday, December 31st. Please note that the time of the luncheon is at 11:00, SSA Auction starts at noon and the evening events in the ballroom begin at 4:00pm. This is an hour earlier than years past. Merry Christmas!! I hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!! Michelle Collins Q.H.R.A.I. Executive Director Quarter Horse Racing Association of Indiana, Inc.

he weather on October 28th was pretty chilly (some would say cold) but that didn't stop sale goers from bundling up and attending the second Annual QHRAI Speed Sale at the Henry County Fairgrounds in New Castle, Indiana. The sale featured 97 horses of racing age, yearlings, weanlings, broodmares and barrel prospects. 54 Horses sold for an average of nearly $2,500. The high seller of the day was Hitter Hard, by Hard Hitting out of the Special Leader mare Somethin Fast. This nice, bay yearling filly was consigned by Mark Michel and purchased by Nicholas Johnson. Nicholas is new to the racing industry in Indiana, however, racing is not new in his family. His grandfather, George Farris has been involved in the QHRAI organization and Quarter Horse racing in Indiana for many years. QHRAI welcomes Nicholas and we look forward to getting more and more new Hoosier owners involved in the 5 Million Dollar Quarter Horse Racing Program we have right here in Indiana. QHRAI is planning to offer another speed sale in Indiana in 2013. If you were sitting in the stands this year, wanting to buy a racing prospect, but you were not sure about how to get involved in racing, plan to attend the New Owners Profitability Conference on January 4th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Indianapolis. This conference is offered by QHRAI and is the night before our Annual Stallion Service Auction and Awards Banquet (see add in this magazine).

2012 National Champions Crowned

Louisville, Kentucky Open 1D Chris Coffey & Streaking Romance


hris Coffey has done it again! Chris jockeyed Streaking Romance to their second consecutive IBRA National Champions title! This is the second time that he has accomplished this feat after back to back wins aboard A Bit of Gold Dust in 2008 and 2009. Owner Buddy Alexander must be satisfied with his horse and jockey after the combo pulled in $6,070 the week of the finals. Elaina Mckinney pulled the Trigger to run a 15.266 and captured the 2D Championship along with $2,555. Josh Bennell polished things up with Red Mans Luster to become the 3D Champion bringing in $1704 for his efforts. Catch Me If You Can said Carly Dolan, but no one in the 4D could, giving her second career thoroughbred a National Title. When asked if she had any comments to share Carly made a great statement that we should all keep in mind in this ever changing business “One thing I have learned, money never buys the win, it’s the willingness to learn and to work hard. Also to have a big strong hearted horse that’ll do anything for you.” Calab Ferrell and Wonder If Shes Sweet answered their own question by taking the 1D Youth National Championship title. The pair just slipped past reserve champions William Ball and May B Noble by only 2 thousandths of a second in the short go. Calab has been

riding Wonder if Shes Sweet for seven years now, at 17 years old this is nearly half his barrel racing career. “She is a handful, but we deal with it because we love her.” says Ferrell. When Sarah-Ashley Beane turned the page of her riding career to Barrel Racing, she could not have imagined the story would lead to her becoming a National Champion with not even a year under her belt. Running a 15.725, Ms. Beane and Magnolia Edition took the 2D Champion spot.

Open 2D Elaina McKinney & Trigger

“Kari Holshouser invited me to go to Nationals with them and I couldn't have been more excited about it. I started running Ed (Kari's horse) in February. I was scared to death but told Ed that I was going to let him do all the work and that's exactly what I did! He runs the same pattern every time and puts his whole heart into every run he makes!” So less than a year after entering the barrel racing game and running on a borrowed horse, Sarah-Ashley Beane took home a National Title, Pro-Rider Saddle and a big fat check.

Open 3D Josh Bennell & Red Mans Luster

The third division youth Championship was taken by Kylie Berschneider and Caress In Time who ran a nearly perfect time with a 16.209. The fourth division Champion is another rider new to barrel racing, Lexi Atkinson. She and her horse Booboo have experience great success this year coming into the Finals as a Top Dog and leaving as a 2012 National Champion! “I have only been barrel racing for a year and a half.” say Lexi. “I've ridden horses all of my life but never competed and when I was given the opportunity to ride my uncle Danny's horse, Booboo, I couldn't pass it up. Even though he's not the fastest horse out there he's won me many awards and I know I couldn't have done this without him.” Two Hundred and Thirty Eight experienced barrel racers showed up for the 2012 National Finals. Only one, however, could prove to be the Master of them all. The fact that this pair has now accomplished this feat twice proves that Jeff Keeney and Streakin USA are indeed Masters within the sport. When asked what makes his horse special he replied, “Streak is a little different but very trainable. He is so consistent but gets a little faster each time.”

Jennifer Butcher climbed all over the 2D Championship aboard Chunky Monkey. Her win was very special because she was on a special horse. “He is 11 and I raised him. I still have his mother (Simply Smashed) who is 21 and has had 4 nice babies. He was a late bloomer. I sent him off to a couple futurity riders when he was about 65% finished but no one wanted to mess with him. After being finished out by Denny

Dawson, he went on to become Owner/Rider Champion as a four year old.

Steve pushed last years 3D winner, Tammy Smith, into the reserve Champion position with his 16.120. IBRA’s WV Director Lora Youth 4D White and her six year old Jesse captured the 4D Championship. Lora says this young Lexi Atkinson horse is special to her because she bred and raised her from a mare that she has owned for & Boo Boo over eight years. Lora started and finished Jesse herself. Due to the large number of entries this year the BBQ and Fun Night had to be combined on Friday night. Everyone lined up to get some Fried Chicken and BBQ. Cornhole, Tug of War, Balloon Toss, Foot Races and Dog Races all took their place in the usual fashion with lots of laughs and fun. The Needhams welcomed everyone to Sunday morning Church service with a bit of blissful worship before turning the stage over to Dwayne Waldrop to give his sermon. The Church service was a blessing with several members in attendance accepting Christ as their lord and savior. 502-239-4000 office 502-239-4100 fax

A big thanks to all of the generous IBRA members who supported this cause! The first year in Louisville certainly had its ups and downs for the IBRA. The number of entries was the second largest ever. Owner/President Shane Cline promises to correct any problems within his control before next year. “It is my goal for this show to be the ‘cant miss barrel race’ of the year for IBRA members. We will continue to make every effort possible to control the cost of the show and keep it affordable for barrel racing families. We also want to make it attractive to those searching for paychecks with the large amount of added money we offer. The awards will continue to improve as well as the atmosphere and production. I want to personally thank everyone who came this year and promise you that we will continue to offer you a barrel racing organization that is focused on providing a Christian family based environment.” – Shane Cline 502-239-4000 office 502-239-4100 fax

In closing the IBRA would like to acknowledge Circle G’s new arena manager Kegan Cordes who had the facility in pristine condition. The Needham’s performed some beautiful Christmas music that put everyone in the right mood to start off a Sunday. “Thanks to everyone who came out this year and made this show a success! We wish you all safe travels, both on horseback and behind the wheel. We hope to see you back at Circle G in March for our Futurity if not sooner at Murfreesboro in January. God Bless!” - Shane Cline

“Trees” in the House Well, it’s that time of year again. The time of year my owners go “coo-coo” on me and start bringing all kinds of odd things into the house. It may have something to do with the weather getting colder. You see, they don’t spend as much time outside when it’s cold out I figure that’s why they bring the “trees” inside. I use quotation marks because these are not real trees. I mean, they look real....they kind of feel real.....but they sure don’t smell real. These “trees” get all kinds of special treatment. They get pretty sparkling lights and other shiny things hanging from their so-called branches. I’m sure the real trees outside are glad they don’t get all of this nonsense wrapped around and dangling from them. (Although I have seen some at other people’s houses who do!) I’ve heard my people talking about putting popcorn on strings and wrapping that around the “trees.” But I couldn’t be that lucky....

Photos by: Still Memories by Anna and Christa Conway

seems that I’m part of the reason they voted against that idea. I overheard the lady of the house telling a story of a dog from her past and popcorn strung on the tree. I don’t think the tree fared very well at the end of the story. And I don’t think the dog was on the nice list for Christmas that year either. Ahhh....Yes! Christmas! That’s what the people around here keep calling the “trees”.... they are “Christmas trees.” All of the other things that are sitting around have something to do with Christmas as well. It’s all coming together now! You’d think I would have figured this out before, but I guess it just seemed so odd that I never made the connection. The “trees,” the little statues of the chubby guy in the red suit, the snowmen that are EVERYWHERE and the baby Jesus (yes, I know who Jesus is) are all part of this Christmas celebration that my people go on and on about through December.

out. I actually LOVE Christmas. I get my own stocking and presents. They turn up every year under the “tree.” Now it makes sense. Now I get it. The “trees” are part of the Christmas theme in the house! And all of this time I thought they were just trying to bring the outside inside! I still think my people go a little overboard. I mean, really...two trees and hundreds of snowmen....a miniature village, a nativity scene (or two), chubby “Santas” (I figured out the name) and reindeer, lights and shiny bulbs everywhere. I guess I should be glad. It keeps life interesting here at the ranch. Hoping for popcorn strings..... Merry Christmas!


Wow....what a revelation! I know I am rambling, but I can’t believe I just figured this

Go Red & Turquoise for the Holidays!

The count down to the holidays is on & it can be a little overwhelming. Instead of a traditional red & green holiday theme, Horses & Heels wants to wish you a red & turquoise Christmas! If you visit horsesandheels. com you will find that the blog has been transformed to turquoise & red. I thought it would be appropriate to showcase some turquoise & red cowboy boots, in a variety of styles. Enter red & turquoise Luccheses, brown & turquoise Lane Boots & turquoise Corral boots. These are all from PFI Western Store.

1 Lucchese





If you like a lot of turquoise a pair of Lane Boots or Yippee Kiyay boots will help you get your fix. I also really admire the Anderson Bean boots front & center. The styling & details on them are amazing.

My favorite red boots right now would have to be these Lucchese boots; I can’t even chose a favorite. You have a beautiful wingtip with leather tooling on one boot & you a solid red with metallic details on the other boots. These boots are guaranteed to spread holiday cheer this year.

“Black Friday”, “Weekend Before Thanksgiving Sale”, “Preview of Black Friday Sale” It seems like the “holiday commercial seasons” are ever expanding. If you are like me, it’s easy to become annoyed by the commercialism and to develop some “bah humbug” attitude about the time of Halloween. The relentless advertisements and commercials starting mid-November have made me consider swearing off the holidays. I know they are only doing their job, but can we do without Jingle Bells in the stores until after we’ve had the opportunity to celebrate Veteran’s Day and enjoy a Thanksgiving family meal? However, I refuse to let the “enemy” (marketing geniuses, who convince us that we “need” rather than “want”) change my attitude toward traditions upon which our country and faith were built. I’m resolved to not allow the marketing people to affect my attitude during the holidays. God has given me so much that there is no way I could ever justifiably complain about what I don’t have. The old truck I drive; the small one-room cabin where I live; and the simple lifestyle I live are still more than most people could ever dream of having. I was blessed to be able to spend Thanksgiving with my son, Taylor, who is currently in the United States Marine Corp. He and I had five memorable days just being together in California. We should all be grateful to those who have served our country in the past or have love

ones currently serving in the military. Regardless of your feelings about the recent election, we live in an incredible country that needs our continued prayers. And for Christmas, I’m also not going to worry about what gifts I buy; how much they cost; or whether those who would receive them will like what I selected. This year, I’m going to give things from my heart --- my words, my actions and my time. Those are the gifts that can’t be duplicated. There is no need or desire to return them. And, you can never give or get too much of them. My gifts will be letters of how I feel about someone; a visit to the person who has no visitors; or I’ll volunteer to help out others, who have less than I. And when the rush hits me before holidays and I start to feel “guilty” about my presents; I’m going to try and remind myself that “it really is the thought that counts.” It is the true meaning of Christmas that really counts. It’s the love that I show to others that will show true holiday spirit. And, it’s not saving money that matters as much as it matters how spending my time will make a difference. Merry Christmas and Live Exceptionally, Chris

Strategies for Deworming Your Horses Stock Photo - © Djk |

Article By Dr. Steve Fisch, DVM

This month Dr. Fisch answers a question from one of our readers. Elizabeth Southard asked: Can you give us guidance on an appropriate worming regimen? Should we wait to worm until fecal egg counts are in a certain range? What about feed-through wormers? I’ve been using Strongid C-2x for years now; should I stop? If so, should I stop immediately or phase down? Thanks for any guidance.

Intestinal parasites are a common problem in horses, but they are not to be taken lightly. Horses can be infected with dangerous numbers and still appear healthy. The effects can range from unthriftiness and dull haircoat to colic and death. Common intestinal parasites include Anoplocephala perfoliata (tapeworm), small and large strongyles, pinworms, and roundworms. Currently there are only four categories of dewormers available to help treat and prevent these parasites: macrocyclic lactones (avermectins), pyrimidines (pyrantel), benzimidazoles, and praziquantel. Using these dewormers there are a couple of different regimens currently in use. “Fast rotational” deworming alternates between avermectin and benzimidazole dewormers in order to obtain the best coverage. All horses on the property are dewormed every two to three months. This schedule may be easier for owners to remember, and may be beneficial to certain horses. In addition, it comes without the added cost of yearly or twice yearly fecal exams. However, it has lead to concerns about intestinal parasites developing resistance to our commonly used dewormers. Page 40

The second deworming schedule is referred to as “strategic” or “target” deworming. Due to genetics some horses (50% of a herd or population) are immune to heavy parasite loads. However, some have poor immunity to parasites and subsequently shed large numbers of parasite eggs in their manure. In fact, 20-30% of the horses in a herd or population are responsible for 80% of the parasite eggs in that environment. Knowing this, we can use fecal egg counts (FEC) to determine which horses in a population are more susceptible to infection and shedding and treating them. When starting a strategic deworming regimen it may be useful to run FEC on each horse every 4 to 6 weeks for at least one year in order to establish trends for each individual. While an average egg reappearance period (ERP) is known for each deworming product, it may by different for individual horses, therefore performing serial fecal tests will help identify those horses with different ERP. Regardless, every horse on your property should have a fecal test run at least once a year, even those that are already on a deworming schedule or daily dewormers as they may have parasites that could have developed resistance. Annual fecal tests are usually run after the grazing season, in early to mid fall (October in our area), and samples should be collected at least 12 weeks after the last deworming to be most accurate. One, fresh (less than three hours old) fecal ball should be collected from each horse. Place the fecal ball in a sealed bag and label it with the horse’s name. The sample can be stored in a refrigerator (not a freezer) or a cooler until it can be delivered to your veterinarian for exam. Samples should not be stored for longer than 24 hours before submitting.

Horses with 200-500 EPG are classified as “medium shedders.” Eight to 12 weeks after the initial dose of dewormer a repeat FEC is performed on “medium shedders” to determine if any additional deworming is needed. “Heavy shedders” are those horses with greater than 500 EPG. “Heavy shedders” will receive additional dewormings with a benzimidazole product in December and April. These horses will need repeat FEC every six to eight weeks after each deworming to ensure the selected deworming products are appropriately treating the parasites.

before they can invade gut tissues and establish infection. These types of dewormers are good for horses in environments where new horses are constantly being introduced, such as a boarding facility. Horses maintained on feed-through dewormers should still have annual fecal test performed as parasitic resistance is common with these types of dewormers. Regardless of what program you choose, it will be important to work closely with your veterinarian to determine if the program is working well for you. Furthermore, the schedules discussed here are merely basic outlines and may need to be altered based on your location (climate is very important in the parasite life cycle) and your horse’s age.

FEC results will tell you and your veterinarian the parasite eggs per gram (EPG) of fecal material. All horses, regardless of their FEC results, will be dewormed with an avermectin product containing praziquantel twice a year, in the fall after the initial fecal and in the spring. This is done to treat for large strongyles, bots and tapeworms, which are difficult to see on fecal exams. Horses classified as “low shedders” (less than 200 EPG) will only need to be dewormed twice a year.

Another test that may be helpful in determining effectiveness of dewormers is the fecal egg count reduction test (FECR). FECR can be used to determine if parasites have become resistant to the dewormers by comparing FEC obtained before deworming to FEC obtained 1014 days after deworming. If the egg count in the second sample has decreased by at least 90% the dewormer is considered effective. Feed-through dewormers are used to kill ingested strongyle larvae We would like to help you get your horse health questions answered by a knowledgeable equine veterinarian.

The Breeders’ Cup

Always...History in the Making


midst the hazy backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains and under the cover of a pure blue sky, Santa Anita Park awoke adorned in purple and awaiting the world. On November 2nd and 3rd, 2012, the venerable race track served as host to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.

Above: The San Gabriel Mountains provide the breathtaking backdrop of the Santa Anita setting. Below right: Welcome to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships! Below left: A Breeders’ Cup garland awaiting the moment to crown a new champion. The winner of each of the 15 Breeders’ Cup races is draped in one of these garlands made of yellow and purple chrysanthemums.

Inaugurated on November 10, 1984 at Hollywood Park in Los Angeles, California, the Breeders’ Cup was designed as a year-end event aimed at awarding a champion horse in various divisions of Thoroughbred Racing. This first Breeders’ Cup lasted one day and comprised of seven races (Juvenile Fillies, Juvenile, Sprint, Mile, Turf, Distaff and Classic) with a combined total purse of $10 million. That day, 64,254 fans witnessed a thrilling three way finish in the $3 million Breeders’ Cup Classic with 31-1 shot, Wild Again holding off favorite, Slew o’Gold and Preakness winner, Gate Dancer. The Breeders’ Cup was born.

In the days since its inception, the Breeders’ Cup has expanded to a two day event that hosts 15 races with a total purse of $25.5 million, making it the richest event in all of sports. The centerpiece of this is the Breeders’ Cup Classic, which itself carries the largest purse of any race in America at $5 million. However, aside from large purses, what makes the Breeders’ Cup truly exceptional and unique is its inclusion of the multiple divisions of racing. Whereas many individual races target a specific age group, gender, racing surface and distance, the Breeders’ Cup has designed a formula to hold multiple races consisting of differing variables that focus on the specialties

Santa Anita 2012

Clockwise from top left: The Breeders’ Cup celebrates its return to Santa Anita Park, “The Great Race Place; Palm trees, mountains, seagulls, sunshine…yes, this is what happens when the Breeders’ Cup returns returns to California; From the overall setting to the art and architecture, there is nothing lacking beauty at Santa Anita; Although the venue for the Breeders’ Cup changes, one thing that remains constant and appears at every track is the Breeders’ Cup statue and trophy.

of these wonderful equine athletes. Further, the Breeders’ Cup aims at involving the world in this process and highly regarded runners from European and other countries regularly compete in the World Championships. In the end, a champion is awarded in each “division” on the grandest of stages that celebrates the best the sport of thoroughbred racing has to offer. Another unique charm of the Breeders’ Cup is that it is rotated to various tracks throughout the United States. While the 2012 version returned to Santa Anita Park in the Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia, previous locations have included tracks such as Churchill Downs, Belmont Park, Monmouth Park, Arlington Park and Gulfstream Park among others. However, once, in 1996, the Breeders’ Cup was held outside of the United States when at Woodbine in Toronto, Ontario. Recently the rotation has focused on holding the event at the same location for consecutive years,

Page 47

when, for consecutive years such as when it was held at Santa Anita in 2008 and 2009, followed by the 2010 and 2011 editions at Churchill Downs. To continue this trend, the 2013 Breeders’ Cup will once again be held at Santa Anita Park. Despite its relative youth in the sport of thoroughbred racing, the Breeders’ Cup has generated many memorable moments. After Wild Again’s dramatic finish in the 1984 Classic, the Breeders’ Cup experienced a similar heart-pounding finish in the 1987 Classic when two Kentucky Derby winners clashed and Ferdinand edged Alysheba by a nose. One year later, in the Distaff, Personal Ensign secured perfection when she absolutely refused to lose and ran down Kentucky Derby winner, Winning Colors, in the mud to retire undefeated in 14 career races. Continuing the trend, in 1989 Sunday Silence and Easy Goer renewed their storied rivalry when Sunday Silence held off a furious charge by Easy Goer to win the Classic. In 1991, Arazi demonstrated an unimaginable burst of speed as he passed 12 horses in a mere one furlong (1/8 of a mile) in the Juvenile. In 1995, Cigar won the Classic and continued on his path toward en eventual 16 consecutive wins. Tiznow became the first and only horse to win consecutive Classic’s when he held off Sakhee in 2001 and Tom Durkin exploded in saying “Tiznow wins it for America!” In 2007 Curlin romped in the mud at Monmouth to win the Classic and in 2010 Goldikova became the first and only horse to win three consecutive Breeders’ Cup races when she took the Mile for the third time.

Above right: Forever the “Queen” of thoroughbred racing, fans still celebrate Zenyatta two years after her retirement. Santa Anita was the site of Zenyatta’s greatest accomplishment when she became the first female to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic in 2009.


Considering the gravity of each of those moments, there remains one horse that embodied the Breeders’ Cup from 2008-2010…her name is Zenyatta. Affectionately known as racing’s “Queen,” Zenyatta burst onto the Breeders’ Cup scene when she won Ladies Classic in 2008 and ran her perfect record to nine consecutive wins. One year later and still undefeated she returned to the Breeders’ Cup and decided to face the boy’s for the first time in her career when she entered into the Classic. At the top of the stretch, announcer Trevor Denman said, “Zenyatta has a lot, a lot of ground to make up. Zenyatta, if she wins this, she’ll be a super horse.” Moments later Zenyatta unleashed her patented late kick and Denman Clockwise from above: Santa Anita was yelled, “This…is…UN…BE…LIEVABLE!!!” as the home to Seabiscuit and the site of many Queen surged past her male counterparts and became the of his greatest accomplishments throughfirst female horse to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic.

Fort Larned

Finally, with 14 races in the books, the world turned its collective attention to the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Heading into the race it appeared on paper that Game On Dude was the horse to beat as he was runner up in the Classic the previous year at Churchill Downs and now was taking a second crack at the prize after a dominant racing season and with the race being run this time on his home track of Santa Anita. Other standouts in the race included Ron the Greek and Flat Out and two other horses that would make this Classic live up to its name. Although Game On Dude made a run in the final turn, he quickly faded as pacesetter Fort Larned and Mucho Macho Man hit the top of the stretch while separating from the rest of the field. Flat Out launched a bid and would eventually finish third, but Fort Larned and Mucho Macho Man hooked one another in one of the greatest stretch duels in Breeders’ Cup history. While it looked for a moment that Mucho Macho Man was going to corral the worthy pacesetter, Fort

Clockwise from above: Jockey, Brian Hernandez Jr. thanks his partner and new champion for a wonderful ride; Draped in racing glory; The winner’s circle is full after Fort Larned’s Classic victory; As Fort Larned heads back to his barn, the sun sets on another wonderful renewal of the Breeders’ Cup.

Larned dug deep and realized that he possessed the heart of a champion. Despite his best effort, Mucho Macho Man could never get passed Fort Larned. They crossed the wire together, separated by ½ length and 6 ½ lengths ahead of Flat Out. As Fort Larned paraded back to the winner’s circle and donned the garland of America’s richest race, the racing world paused for a moment to recognize the tremendous accomplishment that had just been witnessed. The Breeders’ Cup is racing’s World Championships and the events that had just been witnessed were not isolated instances comprised of races lasting roughly two minutes in length. No, instead it was the sum of a year’s worth of work, commitment and dedication that was peaked at the right moment and on display for the world. That night, Fort Larned walked back to his stall at Santa Anita just as Zenyatta had done three years before. While he likely had his regular ration of hay, oats and water, that night, Fort Larned had realized the potential of a Thoroughbred. He was a Breeders’ Cup Classic Champion... and the world knew it. In one year’s time the Breeders’ Cup will return to Santa Anita for its 30th edition. Although it is too early to know what might happen that day, as the Breeders’ Cup would say, “The Best is Yet to Come…”

It started with a horse named Cowboy. Disregarded and discounted, this nine-year-old Red Dun Quarter Horse left his life as a ranch horse in South Dakota and ventured a new path into the life of Steve Heuertz in 2004. Shortly thereafter, a bond was formed that fully catapulted Steve into the world of the horse where he became fascinated with the wonderful capabilities of this majestic animal. Of particular interest were the speed, endurance and competitive spirit demonstrated by the equine heroes within the sport of Thoroughbred Racing. Although initially satisfied with observing from afar, Steve became increasingly captivated by the sport and turned toward capturing the splendor of racing via his other passion, photography. The result was a recipe where he could combine his great love for horses, racing and photography into one harmonious blend that was greater than the sum of its parts. Since then, racing has taken Steve across the country to such wonderful places as Saratoga Race Course, Churchill Downs, Santa Anita Park, Pimlico, Belmont Park, Keeneland and Hooiser Park. During these travels, Steve has been fortunate to witness and photograph equally wonderful races such as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes (racing’s famed Triple Crown) as well as the Travers, Santa Anita Derby, Indiana Derby and the Breeders’ Cup. However, residing in the Chicago suburb of St. Charles, IL, Steve regularly frequents Arlington Park and Hawthorne Race Course where he has enjoyed capturing magnificent races like the Arlington Million and Hawthorne Gold Cup. Today, Steve’s passion for horses, racing and photography is like a fire that continues to be stoked. While either behind the lens capturing the thrill of a Grade 1 race or in the saddle loping around a field with Cowboy, Steve has learned to operate under the simple truth that the Steve Heuertz; more he is able to involve Steve’s horse and loyal friend, Cowboy, the horse in his life, the a 17-year-old, Red happier his days become.

Why Shepards?

w/ Christa Conway

I was actually doing a little research on a different subject to start with this month and while doing so I ran across an interesting tidbit of information. Some of you may have thought this through yourselves or heard of it before, but I had never really thought about the “Why.”

(Please note that references were taken from the following:; Why Bethleham/by Bodie & Brock Thoene; Mt. Olive Press;Targum Pseudo-Jonathan)

Why was Jesus born in Bethleham and why was his birth announced to shepards? In all honesty...I had always thought that God allowed the angels to announce Jesus’ birth to the shepards because they were “normal” people. I guess I thought it seemed no “deeper” a reason than that to me...kind of like Jesus choosing fishermen to be his disciples. But there is so much more! Like there always is when you really look deeper into scripture. Of course I don’t have the room here to get into eleborate detail, but I’ll just mention a few things that sent me reeling. Did you know that Bethlehem means “House of Bread?” It was prophesied that Messiah, “the Bread sent down from heaven to feed the souls of mankind,” would be a descendent of King David. He would also be born in the same city where David, the shepherd-king of Israel, was born - Bethlehem! Micah 5:2 You, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.

Migdal Eder, known as the Tower of the Flock, was where lambs destined for the Temple were born and raised. Every firstborn male lamb from the area around Bethlehem was considered holy, set aside for sacrifice in Jerusalem. Generations of shepherds tended the sacred flocks. After pouring their lives into caring for their flocks, the shepherds would separate the lambs, choosing only the perfect firstborn males to drive to Jerusalem. There the lambs would be purchased by those who wished to atone for their sins. On the same mountain where Abraham had offered his son to the Lord, the lambs would shed their blood and lose their lives as that atonement. It was an endless cycle. When Christ came into the world, he said: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a

body you prepared for me, with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased. Then I said, `Here I am-it is written about me in the scroll- I have come to do your will, 0 God.”’ -Hebrews 10:5-7 John the Baptist called Jesus not only the “Son of God” (John 1:34) but also the “Lamb of God” (John 1:36).

The Firstborn Lamb of God would sacrifice his life to atone for the sins of all - a one-time perfect sacrifice, offered by the Father God Himself.

makes since that the “Lamb of God” would be born in Bethleham and that God would have the shepards. be the first to greet him. Even this was in God’s eternal plan. “I will place shepherds over them who will tend them, and they will no longer be afraid or terrified, nor will any be missing,” declares the Lord. “The days are coming... when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.” -Jeremiah 23:4-5

Where else would “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29) have to be born if not Bethlehem, among the sacred Temple flocks? And the angels announced this to the shepards.

The greatest King of all would arrive in Little Bethlehem, the City of David, the city of shepherds. The place where sacrificial lambs were born and raised. He was placed in a manger. What did that sign mean to the shepherds? What does it mean to you today?

Why the shepards? Was God providing them with the first glimpse of the Lamb of God, the final sacrifice? All of the Passover lambs they had provided over years and only

On the Trail

By Brother Brad Curtis of Mountain Top Cowboy Church

HEAVENLY HERDERS Cookie had fed the boys Time to bed on down Fire was a cracklin` Bed rolls on the ground

You will find him Layin` in a manger When he grows up He’ll be a life changer

As they headed back to camp They told everyone in sight About the sky riders And the Saviour born that night

The sky was lit up Stars shinnin` bright Even to ol` hard cowboys It was an amazing` sight

It was then it happened Sky riders came on down Singin` Glory to God It was a heavenly sound

It was then the cowboys Well they began to sing Glory to God For we have seen The King

As the boys bedded down One star seemed to be alive They’d never seen one like it On any cattle drive

The boys looked at each other Then ran for the string Saddled up fast The sky riders continued to sing

Luke 2:20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Then they herd the sound A rider was comin` in That star was still shinin` Never gettin` dim

Ridin` into town Like a stampeded herd Throwin` caution to the wind Horses being whipped and spurred When they got to town Horses needed care Rode down to the stable And found the Saviour there

By: Bro. Brad Curtis Vilonia, AR 12/9/10

The rider said boys You’re the first to hear A Saviour was born So grab all your cowboy gear Down there in town That’s where you need to go Take you a fast horse No time for ridin` slow

Just a youngin` Layin` in the hay One of the boy s said This has been a purty good day

Have a Blessed


Salvation is a gift and a choice...... Jesus died on the cross as the final sacrifice. When He was resurrected on the 3rd day, he defeated Satan for us. All we have to do is believe that He beat death and acknowledge it with our words. If we believe that and accept Him as our personal savior…we are promised eternal life with Him in Heaven. You can’t earn your way into Heaven; you have to believe your way there. So many people think they “aren’t good enough” to get to Heaven… But… Salvation is a GIFT from God and you don’t earn a gift. Gifts are something someone gives to you and for the gift to be yours, you have to accept it. All we have to do is accept that wonderful gift. I know I have… won’t you? But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many. Romans 5:15

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10: 9-10

Quality Control Requirements Added for North American Non-Listed Black-Type Races Press release at Monday, November 19, 2012 Contact: Carl Hamilton (859) 224-2800

Hoosier Park Press Release - Hoosier Park Racing & Casino’s concluded

The following news release is on behalf of the North American International Catalogue Standards Committee.

De La Cruz earned more than $1.3 million in purse earnings during the 64-day meet.

The North American International Catalogue Standards Committee (NAICSC) today announced that effective January 1, 2014, additional quality control requirements will be implemented for races in North America eligible for non-Listed black-type in SITA catalogues (those compliant with guidelines required by the Society of International Thoroughbred Auctioneers).

the 2012 Thoroughbred meet on Saturday, October 27th awarding Fernando De La Cruz with his first leading jockey title. The Peruvian jockey won 68 races to finish nine victories in front of Hoosier Park’s two-time defending leading jockey winner, Leandro Goncalves.

In the midst of his best season to date, De La Cruz has already posted over $3.1 million in purse earnings and ridden 155 winners in 2012. He has also posted four consecutive seasons with purse earnings toppling the $2 million mark. In 2011 alone, De La Cruz bankrolled over $3.5 million in purse earnings with 170 trips to the winner’s circle, many of which were accumulated between Hoosier Park and Indiana Downs. De La Cruz has relocated to Churchill Downs before heading to Tampa Bay Downs for the winter. De La Cruz palns to return to the Indiana circuit in the spring when racing resumes. “I’m very thankful to all the trainers that gave me the chance to ride some great horses,” De La Cruz noted. “Indiana has been very good to me and my family and I can’t wait to get back.” In the trainer ranks, Tom Amoss won an allowance optional claiming event with Senor Rain on the closing day card to edge out three-time

Non-Listed black-type races include open stakes races with a purse between $50,000 and $74,999 and all stakes races with a purse of $50,000 or more that have a restriction allowed by NAICSC (i.e., state bred, stallions’ progeny, sales graduates or non-winners of a sweepstakes). The new requirements include the addition of a minimum Race Quality Score (RQS) for individual age/sex divisions. Statistics used in the evaluation of Graded and Listed races, including ratings provided by the North American Rating Committee, are not available for non-Listed black-type races. The RQS provides an alternative quality control measurement for these races. The RQS is a composite number compiled by using speed figures for the first four finishers in each race over three years. Four speed figures are used to compile the RQS and are provided by Bloodstock Research Information Systems (BRIS), Daily Racing Form (Beyer), Equibase and Thoro-Graph.

Indiana Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association - ITOBA NEWS The attached document provides an overview of North American blacktype requirements that will become effective January 1, 2014. In January of 2013 a website ( will be made available that will include a listing of non-Listed black-type races with their RQS and the minimum RQS requirements for each age/sex division. Current North American black-type rules will stay in effect for 2013, and the minimum purse requirement for SITA black-type races will remain at $50,000. Also, as announced last year, the American Graded Stakes Committee and the Canadian Graded Stakes Committee will evaluate eligible races for Listed status at their upcoming grading sessions using the same technique and information, including fact-based statistical analysis, that is used during their annual evaluation of Graded Stakes races. Races not deemed to be of Listed quality using this process will lose their Listed status beginning in 2013 and be treated as other non-Listed black-type races. NORTH AMERICAN BLACK-TYPE REQUIREMENTS EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2014 In 2014, for a stakes race in the United States and Canada to receive black type in SITA catalogues, it must: • • • • • •

have a minimum purse value of $50,000 distributed on the day of the race have a Black-Type Race Quality Score equal to or above the established minimum Race Quality Score for its age/sex division close at least 72 hours in advance of its running, have a fee paid by the owner of the entrant, and have a total purse value distributed on the day of the race equal to or greater than the established minimum have all entries be eligible for the purse monies used to determine the minimum purse value for black type or Listed status not have restrictions other than state-bred, non-winners of a sweepstakes, sales graduates or stallions’ progeny not contain a preference clause(s) based on criteria unrelated to the quality of the horse if such preference clause(s) could possibly exclude any horse(s) of superior quality from competing

A Black-Type Race Quality Score is the average of the Annual Race Quality Score for each of a race’s last three renewals. The Annual Race Quality Score is the combination of the speed figures assigned to a race by Bloodstock Research Information Systems (BRIS), Daily Racing Form (Beyer), Equibase and Thoro-Graph. The speed figure assigned to a race is the average of the speed figure assigned to the top four finishers in the race. If a race has a Black-Type Race Quality Score and an Annual Race Quality Score for the most current renewal below the established minimum Race Quality Score for its age/sex division, then it will lose its black-type status. A race that is not conducted for two consecutive years will lose its black-type status. For turf races the three most current turf renewals will be used to calculate the Black-Type Race Quality Score. A race that has lost black-type status must be conducted two times subsequent to losing its blacktype status before being evaluated for reinstatement of black-type status. The race must have a Black-Type Race Quality Score and an Annual Race Quality Score for the most current renewal equal to or above the established minimum Race Quality Score for its age/ sex division in order for black-type status to be reinstated. Starting in 2014 and thereafter, new races created and existing races with material changes to their conditions will be submitted to a committee of the International Catalogue Standards Committee (ICSC) for review prior to the inaugural running to determine if the inaugural running will receive black-type status. To be eligible for review by a committee a new race must have a minimum purse of $75,000 available to all entries and appear in the track’s published stakes book. New races eligible for review and existing races with material changes to the conditions must be submitted to the committee no less than 30 days prior to the start of a track’s race meet in which the new race is to be run. A race granted black-type status for its inaugural running will need to run under essentially the same conditions for each of its first two renewals, including having a purse of no less than $75,000 available to all entries, and achieve an Annual Race Quality Score for each of its first two renewals equal to or above the minimum Race Quality Score for its age/sex division. The inaugural running must achieve an Annual Race Quality Score equal to or above the minimum Race Quality Score for its age/sex division for the second running to maintain black-type status.

Page 63

New races created in 2014 and thereafter with a purse of less than $75,000 available to all entries must run twice under essentially the same conditions before being evaluated for black-type status. To receive black-type status for its third running a new race will need to achieve an Annual Race Quality Score for each of its first two renewals equal to or above the minimum Race Quality Score for its age/sex division. Notice of race name changes must be submitted to a committee of the ICSC no less than 30 days prior to the start of a track’s race meet in which the race is to be run.

Mystery of the Month O

nce again one of our awesome readers came through with some pictures for us to use in our Mystery of the Month. We’re cutting it close, but so far we’ll get to keep you guessing at these mystery cowboys and cowgirls. (We’ll thank our reader officially next month....don’t want to give anything away!) This month’s Mystery bunch of two cowboys and a cowgirl are shown trying on hats and having what looks to be a great time in a western store somewhere. If you can identify this bunch and maybe the year then send us an email or give us a call to win your choice of a one year subscription to The Horse Resource, a “Horsey Hat” or a “Horsey-T.” Call 765-744-7363 or email thehorseresource@ with your answer!


We Have A Winner!

ast month’s Mystery Cowboy of the Month was a man by the name of Ronnie Hyde. Ronnie is shown riding Smooth Shadow Dancer (aka “Dreamy”) setting an arena record at the 1997 National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV. The tie-down roping was exceptionally exciting that year. In round 9 the NFR arena record was broken three times! Some people would say it was one of the most exciting round sin NFR history. Thanks to Anne Hyde for submitting this awesome picture!

Anne and Ronnie are still very involved in rodeo. Anne is an active barrel racer and Ronnie is still roping. Check out their website at Congratulations to our winner, Amy Youngblood of Southern Indiana Equine. She knew the identity of our mystery cowboy and for solving our mystery she chose a FREE subscription for her prize. Tamara Whitten, Jennifer Hitch, Cobie Ward, and Arlyne Layton also knew the identity of our cowboy. If you have some old photos that you’d like to have included in our Mystery of the Month, please email them to us at with any information you can provide. We’d love to include them!

We Need Your Pictures From the Past..... We have ran out of photos!.....Please send us your older photos of horsemen and women (and kids) that are still active in the horse business today. Or if you have pictures of a well known horse or event....that will mix things up a bit. We’re up for some new mysterys if you are!! Keep sending us those photos!!
