1st Dam: Whata Treasure by Treasured SI 95. Treasured won all major paint futurities he ran in Oklahoma and Texas other than Yellow Rose. He ended up second but proved he's especially strong with outstanding speed. He also showed everyone he had the heart to win. Treasured stakes wins for include the Oklahoma Paint Futurity, PSBA Futurity, Pot O Gold Futurity and the APHA National Championship Futurity. In the Pot O Gold Treasured covered the sloppy 350 yards in 18.07 into a headwind earning a 92 SI. Due to an APHA rule, Treasured was an all-time top money earner but was shut out of earning any year-end awards because he only competed in closed stakes races. A closed stakes race is when eligibility is limited, such as a stallion nominated race or a requirement that all entries have a Paint parent. His only win to count for the record was the Paint National Championship Futurity which did not restrict entries. In that futurity, Treasured beat World Champion Indians Image, World Champion Raise A Winner, and Champion Painted Hurrah. The rule seemed strange to some racing people because in all other racing breeds it is customary to count stakes such as the Black Gold towards year-end awards. The APHA did change the rule the following year allowing Treasured's two full siblings Treasured Too SI 103 and Treasures SI 101 to become World Champions.
