Big Smokin Wonder, aka “Pearl”
Big Smokin Wonder, also known as “Pearl,” earned the 2013 AQHA/PRCA Tie-Down Roping Horse of the Year title. The 1997 sorrel mare, sired by Big As I Am and out of Lucky Smokin Jade by Lucky Captain Jess, is owned by Sid Miller of Stephenville, Texas, who also competes with her in AQHA Select division events. Primary rider Cody Ohl, of Hico, Texas, and Pearl competed and worked together as a seamless team in order to earn the prestigious title of 2013 AQHA/PRCA Tie-Down Horse of the Year. Learn what makes Pearl a real treasure in this clip from AQHA Horsepower, a feature on PRCA’s Justin Boots Playoffs, which aired on CBS Sports Network.
