The Newarks decided it was best to end the mares show career early and breed her to Nu Cash. With Nu Cash, she produced Smart Little Cash, NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Champion, Annies Nu Lena, Smartcashinvestment and Annies Little Cash.
Lil Miss Smarty Chex caught the eye of Carol Rose, and she leased the mare. She has several very successful foals out of Shining Spark including Smart N Shine, Shiners Smart Chex, Lil Miss Shiney Chex, and Shiney Lil Miss.
Lil Miss Smarty Chex was humanely put down after problems with her stifles. She was the number one producing mare in the NRCHA for many years, and will always be remembered.
