R.I.P Topsail Whiz

I know he wasn't my horse but I thought a tribute should be made to him anyway.


The reining world lost one of its own when the great Topsail Whiz had to be humanely put down on Dec. 23 2009, after complications from surgery to repair damaged vertebrae in his spine. The sport’s first and only Six Million Dollar Sire transformed the industry and helped to define the modern reining horse.

Owner/breeder and Hall of Famer Bob Loomis said of his Hall of Fame stallion: “He wasn’t just any horse; he was a member of the family. There will never be another one like him.”

“He was a once-in-a-lifetime horse,” said Loomis. “I was a lucky man to have had him.”
