2008 Year In Walking Horses Dedication: Lined With Cash



A breeding stallion’s reputation is often defined by his offspring’s achievements in the show ring. However, when a stallion’s offspring find success across all divisions in the show horse world, then you know he has stepped beyond good and into great. Lined With Cash is one of those greats.

Lined With Cash began his life on April 6, 1996, on Linda Crowley’s farm, sired by the 1987 World Grand Champion Coin’s Hard Cash and out of Gen’s Silver Lining, who is by Prides Generator. With his stellar pedigree, Lined With Cash was quickly put into training and was brought out in his two-year-old year to compete in the Two-Year-Old Open division.

With his athletic ability and striking gray color, Lined With Cash caught the eye of his sire’s owners, Bill and Sandra Johnson of Waterfall Farm. Purchased by the Johnsons before the National Celebration in August, Lined With Cash went on to capture the Two-Year-Old National Futurity for his new owners.

Under the guidance and training expertise of Sammy Day, Larry Edwards and Jackie McConnell, the stunning stallion was shown fairly light for the next few years, yet did not fail to garner several accolades for his trainers and owners. As a three-year-old, Lined With Cash set out to capture the ThreeYear-Old Stallion class at Dickson County and Belfast Lions Club horse shows. From there he went on to the Celebration where he competed against 15 others in the Three-YearOld Stallion National Futurity. He left the ring victorious and turned his sights upon the Three-Year-Old World Grand Championship. After a thrilling and competitive class, Lined With Cash was crowned the reserve world grand champion. His now barn mate, José José carried out the roses that night.

Lined With Cash returned to the Celebration Arena the following year to vie for the Four-Year-Old
world title. It was another tough class with some of the industry’s best going at it for the honors. Lined With Cash took home another reserve world grand championship, this time bested by Electrifying.

At the end of his four-year-old career, the Johnsons decided to retire their gray stallion from the show ring
and put him to work in the breeding shed, adding him to the already outstanding line up of world champion sires standing at Waterfall Farm.

Right away Lined With Cash proved his worth as a breeding stallion. He passed on his willing nature, athletic gait, good attitude and, more often than not, his beautiful color that helps his offspring stand out in a world of bays, chestnuts and blacks. His first crop consisted of such champions as America On Line, Greyline and Lined With Dollars.

Over the next seven years, Lined With Cash sired other champions such as Outta Line, The Dixie Lineman, Strait Line Cash, Lined Walkin', Lined Up At The Ritz, The Lion King, On The Line, I’m Dangerous With Cash, Line Busted, The Goal Line, Cashin In At Dawn, He’s Walkin' The Line, Stepping Out Of Line and Trouble On The Line, among many others.

What can be consider one of the more remarkable qualities of Lined With Cash as a breeding stallion is his offspring have done equally well in the performance and pleasure divisions. In the Walking Horse Report’s 2008 World Champion Sire Rating, he placed fourth overall as a sire of world champions while earning the third position on the performance charts and seventh in the pleasure section. In 2007, he ranked 13th in the overall Walking Horse Report’s Stallion High Point with a fifth place ranking in the emerging stallions category. In 2008, his offspring’s successes have kept him in the top 10 all year.

Lined With Cash also received the 2008 TWHBEA Overall Sire of the Year as well as the 2008 TWHBEA Sire of the Year by Percentage Points. Still a fairly young stallion at the age of 12, Lined With Cash has many more years to prove his worth and to imprint his legacy on walking horse history. For his versatility, his beauty and his willing attitude that he passes onto his offspring, The Year In Walking Horse is proud to dedicate its stallion section to Lined In Cash.
