About Smart Luck

With over $227,000 in combined NRCHA and NRHA earnings, Smart Luck is one of the rare horses to perform at the elite level in both working cowhorse and reining. A 2006 AQHA sorrel stallion, Smart Luck began his show career by making the NRCHA Open Futurity Finals with Todd Bergen riding. Just a few months later the duo finished 5th in the NRHA Open Futurity Finals out of over 400 entries.

The following year Smart Luck and Bergen claimed both the 2010 NRCHA Open Derby Championship and the NRCHA Open Hackamore Championship. That winning streak would continue on for the remainder of the stallion’s show career as he proceeded to win a major title every year. In fact, Smart Luck is undefeated as a bridle horse in NRCHA competition, winning the 2012 and 2013 NRCHA Derby Open Bridle Horse Championships, as well as the 2013 NRCHA Stakes Open Bridle Horse Championship. The stallion also continued to compete successfully in NRHA competition, making the finals at the prestigious National Reining Breeders Classic Open Derby Finals.

Smart Luck has the pedigree to match up with his stellar show career. His sire, Very Smart Remedy, is one of the leading NRCHA sires, with offspring earning over $1 million. Very Smart Remedy won over $103,000 in cutting and cowhorse competition, and was the 2005 NRCHA World’s Greatest Horseman Champion as well as a two-time NRCHA Open Derby Champion.

Smart Luck’s dam is a leading producer, with offspring earning multiple NRCHA open and non pro titles. She herself has earnings of over $29,000 and was the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Non Pro Reserve Champion. Smart Luck’s maternal grand dam, Shirley McClain, has earnings of over $19,000 and has produced earners of over $240,000.
