During the Bank of America Amateur Week, Rita Crundwell showed her homebred filly “Pretty” to her first world championship in the amateur weanling mares. This week, AQHA Professional Horseman Buddy Laney was able to execute a win with Pretty in open weanling mares.
Buddy felt confident going into the class because of his previous success with Pretty at the All American Quarter Horse Congress.
“I won the Masters (weanling halter fillies) with her at the Congress,” Buddy told The American Quarter Horse Journal. “I also showed her mother and won the world with her mother. Her father won the world too. I had a good feeling about it.”
Pretty has many strong points and will continue to be shown next year, according to Buddy.
“She’s very pretty,” Buddy told the Journal in his winning run interview. “She has a lot of mass to her, and she’s so correct. She’s probably one of the best babies I’ve ever dealt with.”
Pretty is owned and bred by Rita Crundwell of Dixon, Illinois. Pretty is by Rita’s stallion Execute, and out of her mare, Phenomenal Ms.
Buddy also showed Phenomenal Ms to her 2006 world championship in aged mares. Phenomenal Ms also claimed the 2004 amateur world champion 2-year-old mare with Rita.
Execute was the 2009 reserve world champion performance halter stallion and the 2005 amateur world champion yearling stallion.
