May 1, 2020, Issue of Quarter Horse News Magazine
The May 1 issue is dedicated to the junior sires of the Western performance horse industry. Along with statistics that rank stallions with five or fewer performance-age foal crops, articles highlight the 2020 freshman sires and young stallions whose foals have sold well in recent years. The features in this issue include a collection of stories from industry members directly affected by COVID-19; a training article about using the half-pass to improve reining maneuvers; a flashback of the last two decades at the NRCHA Stallion Stakes; the tale of Chuy Roman, an immigrant who worked his way from the bottom to NRCHA World Champion; accounts from those charged with exercising elite stallions like Metallic Cat and Smart Luck in retirement; and a profile on Pepto Bro CD, a half-brother to CD Olena who is getting his second chance as a performer and sire. The event coverage in this issue is from the NCHA Eastern National Championships.
