From the National Reining Horse Association
The National Reining Horse Association is pleased to congratulate the association’s newest $1 million sire, Einsteins Revolution. He joins other distinguished sires who have achieved the lofty distinction, including his sire.
Einsteins Revolution is a 2002 dun stallion bred by Christian and Rosi Wagner of Germany. In January 2005, Ruben Vandorp became a part owner and the recorded ownership became Wagner & Vandorp. Einsteins Revolution is by $1 million sire Great Resolve, aka "Einstein," and out of Fly Flashy Jac by Boggies Flashy Jac. Following the formation of the partnership, Vandorp became the young prospect’s trainer and directed his show career. Vandorp's campaign plan for Einsteins Revolution, though a bit unorthodox by most standards, involved having multiple NRHA professionals show the dun dynamo. But the decision proved fruitful many times over – Einsteins Revolution was the first horse to earn more than $300,000 in NRHA events. All told, he has NRHA lifetime earnings of $352,720.
At the 2005 NRHA Futurity, the much heralded Tim McQuay showed the stallion to a Level 4 open finalist position. NRHA’s leading money-earning rider, Shawn Flarida, showed Einsteins Revolution at the 2006 National Reining Breeders Classic, winning the Level 4 open championship, which included a $63,000 paycheck. At the 2007 NRBC, Vandorp and the dun collected the Level 3 open division win and the Level 4 reserve title for earnings in excess of $99,000. At the 2007 NRHA Derby, with Vandorp at the reins, the stallion earned the Level 3 open division championship. Competitors, including Vandorp, paid homage to the great Bill Horn, NRHA’s first $1 million rider and a Hall of Famer, at the 2007 and 2008 Bill Horn Shootout/Single Shot Derby events. Vandorp and Einsteins Revolution won both events, pocketing $30,000 for each win.
When he went to the breeding shed, Einsteins Revolution created much excitement based on his show-pen success and quickly proved his worth as a sire, attracting some of the best mares in the performance horse industry. He is one of the youngest sires to achieve NRHA $1 million sire status. Currently, his total offspring earnings are $1,015,586. Now owned by Silver Spurs Equine & Vandorp, Einsteins Revolution stands in Scottsdale, Arizona, at Silver Spurs Equine.
With such outstanding offspring as Revolution Is Dun (NRHA LTE $144,422), Relatively Sweet (LTE $67,447), Footwork Revolution (LTE $64,029), Einsteinshersheykiss (LTE $46,996), and Memorable Revolution (LTE $35,868), Einsteins Revolution will undoubtedly continue to demand attention from mare owners while setting new standards and milestones.
