BL Whiz Kid
BL Whiz Kid is a 1996 sorrel stallion sired by the great Topsail Whiz out of the mare Cowgirl Enterprise by Surprise Enterprise. His exceptional pedigree is a bonus but his beautiful movement, natural low topline, athletic ability and goodlooks are what attracted him to us. The classic BL style has certainly been passed on to many of his “kids”.
We purchased BL in 2001 off the Loomis Ranch and in 2002 he came home to Ardrossan to continue showing and breeding. He had a tremendous show career with LTE of $50,000. BL was shown by four different trainers: Dale Bennett, Duane Latimer, Cody Sapergia and Shawna Sapergia. Each of these riders was very successful aboard him winning major events across Canada and the United States. Championships at NRBC, Canadian Supreme, NRHA Futurity, Cardston Derby, Superslide and the Canada Cup are some of his accomplishments.
In 2005, just when he thought his show career was over, he was pressed into service again. BL and Shawna Sapergia went to the Canada Cup in Blainville, Quebec where they were Reserve Champion as well as the CRI/FEI Open and the NRHA Open Champions. The last time he was shown in 2006 in Denver at the FEI World Reining Masters where Shawna and BL represented Canada very well winning the Bronze Medal.
Now we are enjoying his offspring, the BL “Kids” develop their own show careers. To date, OE are nearing $190,000 and according to Equi Stat, QHN Top 250 Sires, BL is ranked 71st. This is a huge achievement for a stallion standing in Canada. Thank you to all the breeders, trainers, and owners who have supported BL. His babies have been very successful in NRHA, ARCHA, and AQHA events. Some have also had success in roping and barrel racing arenas.
At the 2012 Canadian Supreme the “kids” had terrific reining performances resulting in three major Supreme titles:
-CS Open Futurity – Ma Peppys Sugar Whiz
-CS Non Pro Futurity – Great North Whiz
-CS Open 4 Year Old – Pepinic Whiz
What a banner year!
In previous years, the following horses have all taken home Canadian Supreme Championships: Minutes Whiz Kid, SB Im A Sugared Whiz, BL Whizabelle and BL Whizmaster.
It is a great honor for BL Whiz Kid to be inducted into the Canadian Supreme Hall of Fame.
