Chic Please

Chic Please


There have only been a few horses to make the finals of both the NRHA and NRCHA Open Futurities. With Todd Bergen in the saddle, Chic Please (LTE $209,184) is among this small group with this elite accomplishment. In 1998, he became the NRHA Futurity Open Champion AND the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Reserve Champion. What does it take for a horse to be this polished athletically? It takes a lot of cow, big stops, a high level of reining ability and a special kind of mental makeup to be both a reining and cow horse superstar. It takes something else…it takes the promise of great genetics!

The sire of Chic Please is top industry performer and sire, Smart Chic Olena, NRHA Hall of Fame and Four Million Dollar Sire and AQHA World Champ in both cutting and reining! Smart Chic Olena is Smart Little Lena top producing offspring (and is the sire of offspring with earnings in excess of $10,400,000)

Chic Please is the sire of offspring with earnings in excess of $1,600,000 and he was the only sire with three offspring in NRCHA Open Futurity Finals in 2010.
