In 2010 One Time Royalty made history at the US NCHA Futurity, when his finals run was awarded the highest score in history of 230!
Not all horses live up to a great name but in this case the stallion really is cutting royalty – a member of an elite group of Futurity champions, with a pedigree as rich as the $450,000 prize money he earned, before being retired sound to stud.
Traditionally, stallions that have won the Futurity have been game changers in the breeding pen. One Time Royalty is set to continue this trend and is passing on his type and talent to his progeny.
One Time Royalty has always stood out as being a beautiful horse. He can be described as flashy and flawless in type, he is also a good size at 15.1hh, and possesses a beautiful length of rein. His conformation is of a contrastingly superior quality. He simply stands out from the crowd.
His first foal crops are not only inheriting his physical characteristics but are showing all the traits and abilities inherent in their sire. The foals are extremely talented, bright, gritty and stop hard. They set their hind end, and move their front end cleanly and effortlessly as did their sire. Indeed, One Time Royalty is showing signs of being an impactful and remarkable sire by improving on the genetics of the generation before.
One Time Royalty progeny are in high demand. At the US 2015 NCHA Futurity Sale his progeny sold for as much as AU$50,000 and an impressive average of over AU$22,000, which is 6 times his current breeding fee.
Among the repeat buyers is America’s leading cutting horse trainer Lloyd Cox. Lloyd was the trainer of One Time Royalty and it is proof of how highly he rates this stallion among the greats he has trained. Not only is Lloyd buying One Time Royalty progeny, he will also breed some mares this season to add to his band.
Another indication of his early recognition as a sire is the amount of returning mares. Jeff Oswood, manager of Oswood Stallion Station and One Time Royalty USA, says this is the best “barometer” of One Time Royalty’s popularity; with people that are riding the eldest crops already rebooking their mares. “The proof is in the pudding. The foals are classy, quick, focused and sharp. They have poise and genuine eye appeal. They work cows with a succinct ‘gotcha’, ‘trappy’ attitude – just like their father”.
Australia is fortunate to have direct access to a stallion of this caliber and magnitude. One Time Royalty represents an opportunity to breed or purchase a phenomenal athlete, a royally bred and best performed son of One Time Pepto (US NCHA $331,097) and Royal Serena Belle (US NCHA $124,196), herself a 1996 US NCHA Futurity Reserve Champion. One Time Royalty’s pedigree boasts 7 US NCHA Futurity Champions, including 4 paternal and 3 maternal past Champions. The strength of his pedigree is jaw dropping. He is the tangible culmination of his lineage.
One Time Royalty is the ultimate stallion to breed your mares for cutting or campdrafting. Don’t be left behind in the dust. Book early to secure your future champion.
