“Hollywood Centrefold” is by “Hollywood Showdown” who needs no intoroduction, being one of the best performing sons of “Hollywood Return”[see stallion pg for full performance history] and is out “Crystal Magnum”. “Centrefold” is the full sister to “Showdowns Topgun”, who is a well performed Roping and Barrel Racing horse. His conformation and style/build would have seen him excel in the Show ring and Dressage, however he loved his cattle work and had a ton of speed, so the rodeo arena is where he went. “Crystal Marc” is a 3/4 sister to “Centrefold” and she has performed very well in the showring also, with several wins and placings from limited outings.
“Crystal Magnum” is by “Magnum Force”, who sired numerous Show winners, including “Tuff Enuff”, “Oh So Special”, “Hy Fashion” and “Magnolia Lass” to name a few. These horses were all Halter Futurity Champions and many went on to compete and win many Championships under saddle. “Magnum Force” was by the great “Ambassador” [AQHA]who was best known in the racing circles as “Savannah Jet” and he has had several winners in the Rodeo Arena as well as the show ring, he of course was by the great“Jet Deck”. His dam, “Heishe”, was a grandaughter of the immortal “Go Man Go” and “Vandy” with a dash of “Leo” in there again. Each of these horses mentioned are the ‘Royalty’ and the foundation of not only the Sprint bred horses, but most of our horses at the O.H. Corral.
By the late ’80s early ’90s Quarter Horse Sprint Racing had died in Australia, because of the lack of support from the Thoroughbred industry – some say they were afriad that the spectacular ‘short racing’ would take over the racing industry and was a threat to the Thoroughbred industry. So the Show Ring was the course that so many of the Sprint horses of the time took. Sprint horses, generally, had great conformation, so were very successful in the Show Ring and swapped over into this arena with ease because of their temperament, movement and conformation.
“Centrefold” was broken in and started roping, however the Rodeo industry is hard in the aspect that you can only compete once in each event, on one horse, unlike campdrafting, jumping, cutting and reining. “Hollywood Lion Queen” and “Driftin In Hollywood” were being campaigned extensively therefore, making harder to compete on several horses at once. “The decision was made for Centrefold” to enter the broodmare band, because both of her siblings were competing successfully with their respective owners. She is a beautiful mahogany bay, with any equally exceptional temperament that she passes on to her foals. She has not disappointed us thus far with two fillies by the great campdraft sire”Mabo” [see For Sale Page “H’wd Pin Up Girl”], and the exceptional 2012 palomino colt by “Phantom of the Roc”, [see For Sale Pg “H’wd Daytona”]. Perhaps her most awaited foal will be her 2013 foal by “Dun It Downunder”. One think that we can be sure of, is that will be well built, good minded horses that will have the ability to do almost anything that you want to do with them, and oh so pretty to boot!!!
