CR Sun Reys is shining bright in Houston

CR SunReys BOyd

After marking 226 to lead the go-rounds, Boyd Rice matched the high 226 score again on Center Ranch’s CR Sun Reys for an impressive 4-point win in the Mercuria NCHA World Series of Cutting at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Saturday, March 1st.

While it was was the first trip to the Mercuria finals for the 6-year-old mare by Dual Rey, it certainly wasn't Boyd's "first rodeo..."

Rice, who won the National Reined Cowhorse Association’s World’s Greatest Horseman championship in Fort Worth a week earlier, has earned an excess of $180,000 on CR Sun Reys. The flashy mare earned the title of 2013 Bonanza Open Champion, was third in last year’s NCHA Classic Challenge, and fourth in the 2012 Super Stakes.

And the good news doesn't stop there. Like her father, Boyd Rice’s daughter, Trea, is no stranger to winning either- earning two buckles atop "Bonnie." Trea won the NCHA Sr Youth Cutting Championship at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on Saturday with an impressive score of 149. She also won the Senior Youth Scholarship Cutting on the mare at last year’s NCHA Summer Spectacular. Trea says the money from the competitions are going to help her pay for college. 

CR Sun Reys is out of Play Peek A Boon, an NCHA Futurity finalist and earner of more than $200,000. She will continue to show this year, and we have big plans for her back at home. Already one of our standout broodmares, CR Sun Reys rounds out an elite lineup of Center Ranch producers, as she is on her way to becoming one of the highest earning daughters of Dual Rey.
