In 2004, a palomino filly by Wimpys Little Step and out of Collena Chic Olena was born in North Carolina. Named Wimpys Little Chic (but known as “Lexie” in the barn), the foal would grow up to be a reining phenomenon. Wimpys Little Chic has become the all-time NRHA money earner—beating all the boys.

Lexie gave new meaning to girl power when the mare won the 2007 NRHA Futurity, becoming the only reining horse to win both the National Reining Breeders Classic Derby and NRHA Derby Open Championship titles. Lexie banked more than $514,000 in NRHA competitions and remains the highest money-earning horse in NRHA history.
