Colts and geldings took their first steps into the competitive arena October 10 during the All American Quarter Horse Congress Masters class for weanlings with Execute A Score taking first place with AQHA Professional Horseman Ross Roark at the shank.

The 2010 colt is by Execute and out of She Scores, one of breeder Rita Crundwell’s favorite mares.

“You breed them, and if you have a good mare and you have a good stallion, you hope for the best,” Rita said after the win.

Ross showed the colt’s dam to a grand championship at Congress as well as a world championship.”

“He’s a very balanced, correct colt,” Ross said. “He’s got a lot of traits you look for in a stud horse. He has a pretty head and neck, a good top, good on his feet and legs. He tracks good. He’s good-minded. I think the direction the judges are going in now, those little things mean something.”

The colt’s next outing will be at the AQHA World Championship Show in November. In the meantime, he’ll return to the Meri-J Ranch for more fitting by AQHA Professional Horseman Jim McKillips.
