Grit x sand = San

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Cutting star Sister CD earned a red badge of courage last Saturday, when he broadsided an aggressive heifer and won the NCHA Senior Youth Scholarship Cutting in Fort Worth with 230 points.

“I’ve ridden that horse fifty times and I never marked a 229,” said owner Skip Queen, who lent his famous gelding to 15-year-old Kay Parker for the event.

Sister CD’s body block (click here to watch) reminded me of Buster Welch’s experience with Peppy San Badger at a show in Amarillo.

“In just that split second that I saw what was unfolding, I thought, ‘She’s gonna get away,'” Welch told me. “Then he so quick hit that cow and just dropped off of her. But when he hit her, he knocked her feet away from him. I’d never had him do that before and never had him do that again. But he knew that was the shot he had and he took it.”

Peppy San Badger and Sister CD have more in common than full body contact in the show arena. Sister CD has two direct crosses to Peppy San Badger. His sire, CD Olena, is out of a Peppy San Badger daughter, and his dam is by Dual Pep, by Peppy San Badger. In addition, his dam, Little Baby Sister, is out of San Jo Pat, whose sire, San Jo Lena, is by Peppy San, a full brother to Mr San Peppy.

Sister CD, by CD Olena, is one of cutting’s top five all-time money earners, with $720,678. Peppy San Badger (Little Peppy), an all-time leading sire, grandsire and great-grandsire, won the 1977 NCHA Futurity, the 1980 NCHA Derby and the 1981 NCHA World Finals.
