One of the most popular Breyers in a long time is the fantastic Big Chex To Cash. Debuting in the fall of 2008 he’s quickly become a fast favorite and popular in the hearts of many collectors. The real Big Chex To Cash is just as popular and interesting!
Big Chex To Cash was foaled in 2002 and At only seven years old, the stunningly gorgeous palomino overo has lifetime earnings of over $200,000 and holds the title to multiple national reining championships. His palomino sire, Nu Chex To Cash, is one of reining’s all-time leading producers, having earned more reining points than any other horse in the American Quarter Horse Association’s history, as well as being the only horse to have earned AQHA High Point Reining and High Point Working Cow Horse in the same year.
Owned by the 23 Partnership in California, it was not until the late fall of 2004 when paired with NRHA’s million dollar trainer Andrea Fappani, when the talent Big Chex had been bred for became evident. That year, the pair won the West Coast Spectacular Futurity and the NRHA Futurity Reserve Championship with impressive sliding stops and powerful, controlled turnarounds. But the wins didn’t stop there! Also in 2005, Big Chex was the Equi-Stat All-Age Leading Reining Money-Earner, the Equi-Stat Reserve Champion 3-Year-Old All-Divisions Money-Earner and the winner of an NRHA Open Futurity Bonus.“Big Chex To Cash has had a great career. We couldn’t be more thrilled with his successes, and we’re very excited to have him immortalized as a Breyer Portrait Model,” said the stallion’s trainer/rider Andrea Fappani.
The deeply dappled stallion, with his flashy palomino overo coloring including four white stockings, a bald face and one blue eye, continued competing with Fappani in 2006, earning fifth in the Las Vegas Reining Classic Open Derby. The pair returned to reining’s spotlight with a vengeance in 2007 with the NRHA Open Derby Reserve Championship and the Reining by the Bay Derby Co-Championship titles. The handsome stallion currently stands at stud in California, through Fappani Performance Horses.

His paint job is one of Breyer’s most complex to ever be offered into its regular run line and his beautiful dappling, pinto markings and blue eye all make him stand out to all.
