One Fine Vintage, the AQHA and NRCHA World Champion known as “Vinnie,” is the cornerstone of Robertson Ranch’s breeding program.

Sired by $22 million producer One Time Pepto and out of Shiners Siena by Shining Spark, One Fine Vintage’s pedigree is stacked with impressive bloodlines that cross well on a number of mares.

“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.”

Well enough that Holcomb won the 2022 ARHFA 4-Year-Old Heading World Championship on One Vintage Merada, by One Fine Vintage. In 2023, Holcomb and One Vintage Merada also won the futurity side pot heading for Miles Baker at the Riata Buckle, banking another $51,750 in earnings.

Standing at 15.1 hands, Vinnie’s versatility and athleticism are unmatched. He not only holds two World Championship Working Cow Horse titles but also has an AQHA Open Superior in Working Cow Horse, Heading and Heeling with lifetime earnings of $135,187 and offspring earnings in excess of $337,000. His average money earner has won $18,755, according to QData, with five having won AQHA points early into his breeding career.

While originally a reined cow horse stallion, the majority of his offspring have won in the team roping—some $247,378 before the 2023 Riata Buckle earnings are even added in.

“That horse just gives you confidence,” said $2-million rider Corey Cushing 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.”

His offspring are not only excelling in cow horse events but have recently made waves in the roping arena, with Fine Vintage Cash becoming the No. 1 Highest Money Earning Rope Horse Futurity Mare in the Fall of 2023 with $112,361 in earnings.

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.”
