NRHA Sire Secures Honor

Custom Crome slides into a prized slot in the NRHA.

According to the National Reining Horse Association, Custom Crome is now on the very short list of NRHA $2 million sires. The sire's offspring's official show earnings now total $2,001,691, putting him among the likes of Hollywood Dun It, Smart Chic Olena, Shining Spark, Topsail Whiz and Gallo Del Cielo -- all sires of offspring earning in excess of $2 million at NRHA events.

Custom Crome, a 1990 American Quarter Horse stallion, is owned by Steve Simon, who lives in Marietta, Oklahoma, where the stallion stands. Custom Crome (Crome Plated Jac x Another Greyhound) is an NRHA Hall of Famer who earned nearly $110,000 in the show ring. His

successes included winning the 1993 NRHA Futurity open division with Mike Flarida, another NRHA Hall of Famer.
