Boemil Twin Robotop Becomes NRHA’s Highest Money Earning Appaloosa

By Christa Morris - NRHA competition is open to all breeds of horses. American Quarter Horses, American Paint Horses, Arabians, Morgans and Appaloosas are among some of the breeds seen at NRHA-approved shows.

Appaloosas have competed successfully in the sport for many years and have made their presence known winning many classes and earning worthwhile purses and prizes. In 1986, Gunsmokes Skeeter became NRHA’s all-time leading Appaloosa money earner. Barbara Mazziotta’s 1983 mare (Boss Nowata Star x Mr Gunsmokes Doll) was shown exclusively by Terry Thompson to win $30,174. During the 2011 National Reining Breeders Classic, Frank Marley’s Some Kinda Shine (Shine Of A Kind x Precious Lady D) topped that mark with NRHA Professional Matt Mills aboard. The Appaloosa stallion racked up more than $30,517 in NRHA LTE.

2014 welcomes another change. The highly boemil twin robotopsought-after title now belongs to Boemil Twin Robotop with $32,570 in NRHA LTE. Lara Lorengo, of Italy, has owned and shown the 2006 stallion for almost four years. With Lara aboard, they earned championship titles at the 2012 Italian Derby in non pro levels 1-3. Italy’s Giuseppe Prevosti also rode the stallion to a significant portion of his earnings. All of the stallion’s earnings have been accumulated at NRHA shows in Europe. Boemil Twin Robotop, bred by Emilio Bonoperti, is by Topsail Speckles and out of Boemil Valentwin.
