sire: Hit The Lights

This beautiful stallion put Dell Hendrick's over the Million Dollar mark - and offers not only the best of Grays Starlight, but the best in temperment, conformation and ground crushing style.
  • NRBC Open Classic Champion,  
  • SWRHA Open Futurity Champion
  • NRHA Open Futurity Finalist
  • 2-time NRHA Open Derby Finalist
  • NRBC Open Finalist
  • LTE exceed $112,000



One of my personal favorites for SO many reasons. 

Hit The Lights is a 1999 Sorrel Stallion, by Grays Starlight, out of the elite broodmare and own daughter of Freckles Playboy - Playboys Promise (producer of earners of over 200K). In 2002, Dell Hendricks rode this talented athlete to the Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity Championship. Hit The Lights has also been a NRHA Futurity Finalist, NRBC Finalist, and NRHA Derby Finalist with Hendricks at the reins. With over $112,000 in lifetime earnings, Hit The Lights has THE temperment we look for and we feel he is THE IDEAL when it comes to a show stallion and a sire.  His foals are quiet, easy, durable and extremely talented. 


* As of 6/22/10, HIT THE LIGHTS is now a 2x WORLD CHAMPION sire!!!! 

*Hit The Lights sire, Grays Starlight is still in the Top Ten Leading Sires list.  He is the #4 All-Time Working Cow Horse sire & the #15 All-Time Reining sire.  

* Playboys Promise is not only the dam of NRBC Champion Hit The Lights but she is also the dam of Hiccup N Play.  Producer of Play Dual Rey, currently 2nd place in Worlds Greatest Horseman Prelims.  She is also the dam of Play Royal.  2009 PCCHA $20,000 Non-Pro Year End Champion & 2009 PCCHA Rookie of the Year (only horse rode for title), 2009 NCHA $20,000 Non-Pro Area Leader

* Glitters damsire Custom Crome is the #6 All Time Leading Reining Sire, and is now a $2 Million Dollar Sire

*Topsail Cody is not only the #13 All-Time Reining sire and not only the sire of The All-Time Leading NRHA $6 Million Dollar Sire Topsail Whiz.  He is also the sire of the wildly popular - NRCHA 2005 Hackamore World Champion &  NRCHA 2x (2008 & 2009) Worlds Greatest Horseman Champion Topsails Rein Maker. 

Truly some of the best blood in both industries!
