Bobby Lewis’s 2019 stallion Time To Glo amassed $132,187 in just his 4-year-old year, making him not only the top-earning futurity horse of 2023 but the second highest-earning rope-horse stallion in QData to date, behind only his nephew, Sevens Star Glo.
Time To Glo’s $132,187 won in his 12-month career is just a little more than $1,000 behind all-time leading stallion Sevens Star Glo at $133,557.
Time To Glo—by DT Horses‘ World’s Greatest Horseman Champion stallion Hickory Holly Time out of AQHA World Champion Look At Her Glo—won $37,000 at the Gold Buckle Futurities with Cade Rice to close out 2023 and put him over the edge as the winningest shown rope horse of the year.
“I feel so blessed to have a such a nice horse,” said Lewis, who showed Time To Glo’s dam to an AQHA world title in the heading and over $61,000 in earnings. “He’s been a good horse the whole time, and Cade did an excellent job of showing him down there.”
Rice swung a leg over Time To Glo for just the second time in Belton at the Gold Buckle Futurity, where the horse also won the Superhorse title with Cody and Cheyanne McCartney showing him in the tie-down and breakaway, too. Joseph Harrison showed Time To Glo for much of 2023, winning first in the gold division at the Platinum Medal Futurity, second in the Junior Heeling at the AQHA World Show, sixth at the ARHFA World Championship and third in the 4-&-Under at the ARHFA.
Editor’s note: The Team Roping Journal’s Breeder’s Guide went to press before we left for the 2023 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in an effort to get all your breeding options in front of you as early as possible, given the late end-date of the Finals this year. In it, we listed the top futurity horses of the year and all-time, and Time To Glo was not in the top five of those rankings. Those rankings did not track AQHA show earnings, either, of which Time To Glo had $38,101 in 2023. We’ll update earnings as they become final for 2023 through QData and separate out the rodeo and Open earnings from show horse earnings. Thanks for your patience as we navigate the new business of reporting on the tracking rope horses!
