Owned by Brad and Mary Robertson of Robertson Ranches in Plymouth, California, One Fine Vintage, the AQHA and National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) World Champion Working Cow Horse known as “Vinnie,” is the cornerstone of the ranch’s breeding program. Sired by One Time Pepto, (a $20-million producing sire whose lifetime earnings are more than $330,000) out of Shiners Siena by Shining Spark, One Fine Vintage’s pedigree is stacked with impressive bloodlines.
Standing 15.1 hands and ridden by the likes of Corey Cushing, Phillip Ralls, Ron Emmons and Jay Wadhams, Vinnie’s versatility and athleticism are unmatched, as he not only holds two World Championship Working Cow Horse titles but has also been successful in the heading, heeling, ranch riding and halter arenas. In 2021, he continued to compete in multiple events, particularly in the team roping before he was retired under Corey Cushing in 2022. He’s got lifetime earnings of more than $135,000 along with 295.5 AQHA points and ospring earnings in excess of $212,000, with over $123,000 earned in rope horse futurity events alone.
In addition to his World Championship titles, Vinnie is an AQHA High Point Open and Supreme Working Cow Horse and NRCHA Supreme Reined Cow Horse with an AQHA Open Superior in Working Cow Horse, Heading and Heeling.
“That horse just gives you confidence,” $2-million-rider Corey Cushing said after winning the 2016 AQHA Senior Working Cow Horse World Championship on Vinnie. “I’ve watched him for a long, long time and I’ve never seen him be outdone. There’s nothing that horse can’t do great. He’s a natural athlete.”
Four of his first foals made their debut in the show pen as 3-year-olds in 2019 and racked up just over $35,000 in earnings over the course of three events, including the National Stock Horse Association Futurity, the Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity and the NRCHA Futurity, with one claiming the NRCHA Limited Open Futurity Reserve Championship. His 2022 and 2023 foals are nominated to the Royal Crown, NRCHA Stakes and the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association Stakes. As of 2023, his foals are also eligible for the Brazos Valley Super Stallion Incentive as well as the Riata Buckle.
“I think One Fine Vintages make a pretty picture,” ARHFA World Champion Andy Holcomb said. “Even when they aren’t perfect they manage to catch your eye. They also learn fast and pattern well to the roping so they fit my program well.”
In addition to riding several of his offspring, Daniel and Jazlyn Rice of Clements, California, have fit Robertson Ranches’ One Fine Vintage yearlings for sale over the past several years.
“We’ve been so impressed by the consistency in their size, build and demeanor,” Jazlyn said. “They are equal parts smart and sweet and possess the athletic ability to excel at multiple events just like Vinnie did. He puts his stamp on them every time.”
One Fine Vintage is currently standing at the renowned Brazos Valley Stallion Station in Stephenville, Texas, and is available to be seen for yourself if you happen to be passing by. He is 6-panel negative, making him an excellent cross on most mares.
