In October of 2010 Russ and Janet Westfall purchased Smartest Peanut Yet from Chris Cox for thier son, Brandon, to ride and show. Brandon and the horse known as "Peanut" met almost 2 years earlier when Brandon came to the Diamond Double C Ranch to film a Chris Cox Horsmanship television program. Brandon rode the gelding in the TV program and they got along very well. Then two years later, when the horse was delivered to California, just days before the PCCHA Futurity, they got along so well that Brandon won the Youth Invitational-Junior Championship riding Smartest Peanut Yet. In the 2011 Idaho Cutting Horse Association Mercuria World Series Non-Pro first go round, Peanut won it with a score of 232. He qualified for the finals and placed fifth over all.
