I am really excited about what 2018 will bring to Parkheath stud...
There are 2 foals due in spring 2018;
One whose Dam (Shelly), is by the by $10 Million Dollar sire “Gunner” and the foal’s Sire is Shine Chic Shine.

At the 2017 NRHA futurities 17 of the 35 Section 2 Level 4 Non Pro Finalists were sired by Gunner, a son of Gunner, or out of a daughter of Gunner!

There were 8 Semi Finalists and 4 Finalists sired by Shine Chic Shine, Shine Plum Shine, (by Shine Chic Shine) won the NRHA Futurity Level 3 Open Futurity tie. He also won the first go round of the Level 3 and 4 but he stumbled in the Semi finals and missed the Level 4 finals. Watch for them at the NRBC.
