Once proclaimed as the greatest horse of his time, King has become one of the American Quarter Horse industry's cornerstones. While he never won any performance points, King established a dynasty. He sired 20 AQHA Champions, 84 Performance Registers of Merit, 12 Racing Registers of Merit, three Superior Halter Award winners and 10 Superior Performance Award winners. At the time that King was born, there wasn't an American Quarter Horse Association. However, his conformation would later set the standard for American Quarter Horse judging for more than a decade. King died of a heart attack in 1958 but even now, the American Quarter Horse industry is influenced by third, fourth and fifth generation King-bred horses.

Foaled April 10, 1944. He was purchased by E. Paul Waggoner in 1945 for $5,700 and he stood 14.3 hands and weighed 1,150 pounds. His show career started when he was named champion yearling stallion at the Texas Cowboy Reunion Quarter Horse Show in Stamford. He was grand champion stallion in the '40's at Denver's National Western Stock Show, the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show in Fort Worth, State Fair of Texas in Dallas and the American Royal Livestock Show in Kansas City. As a 4-year-old, in 1948, Poco Bueno started his performance career as a cutting horse, and his amazing ability helped him to quickly acquire an impressive record - and a legion of fans. After AQHA started keeping show records in 1951, Waggoner sent Poco Bueno back out to earn the title of AQHA Champion, which he earned at the same time as his daughter, Poco Lena.  Perhaps one of the most successful matings of Poco Bueno was that with a plain headed mare named Sheilwin.  This produced the mares Poco Tivio and Poco Lena.  Poco Lena was described as having the head of a princess and the rump of a washer woman.  She was a legendary cutting horse and has been inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame.  Poco Tivio also contributed to the breed by giving us the foals Peponita, Doc's Lynx, Doc's Hotrodder, and Doc's Prescription.  Poco Bueno sired 405 registered foals.  Thirty-six became AQHA Champions.  Poco Lena, Poco Mona, and Poco Stampede have all been inducted into the NCHA Hall of Fame.

Mr. San Peppy was a great grandson of Macanudo (an offspring produced from the breedings of Old Sorrel to a thoroughbred mare).  Tio Kleberg stated "Mr San Peppy had conformation, disposition, and tremendous athletic ability.  We didn't know he was going to be a sire.  But, by the time his third foal crop arrived, we were starting to train some of his foals and realized he was a superior individual who would add to our genetics what we wanted in our horses."  Mr San Peppy had more than $107,000 in National Cutting Horse Association earnings and sired more than 1,300 registered foals.  He died in 1998.  In 2003, half of the King Ranch's broodmares carried Mr San Peppy's blood;  the other half carried that of his son, Peppy San Badger aka Little Peppy.  "Mr. San Peppy and Little Peppy were two different horses, " Tio says.  "Mr San Peppy was very rugged, a tough kind of a horse.  The faster and dirtier the calves were, the harder he worked.  Little Peppy was more like a ballerina - very agile and light-footed."

Although not bred to be a cow horse, Doc Bar is best remembered as the horse which revolutionized the cutting horse industry. By Lightning Bar and out of Dandy Doll, Doc Bar was bred for speed, but only won $95 in four starts. Doc Bar wasn't a performance horse either but turned out to be a good halter horse and an excellent sire whose foal crops totally redefined the sport of cutting. Not only did his sons and daughters find success in the cutting arena, but they also found success in other performance events including working cow horse, reining and western pleasure. According to AQHA records, Doc Bar sired 485 foals which earned over 7,000 halter and performance points and 27 AQHA Champions. Doc Bar is credited with bringing a totally different look to cutting horses and for putting the sweeping motion into the cutting horses of today.

Plaudit had no official racing record but the good blood that came down to him from both his parents undoubtedly gave him speed.  By the time official quarter tracks were established, Plaudit was long past his racing prime.  He stood 15 hands and weighed about 1050 pounds carrying long muscling on a lengthy body that was better fronted and higher withered than today's Quarter Horses.  He had a marvelous shoulder and arm, and the long line of his croup appears to have been nearly level.  Plaudit sired many good offspring.  It was here that he sired Question Mark, out of the mare Pepito (TB).  Question Mark could surely run.  In his last, and most famous race, he defeated the great Shue Fly.  During the race however, his pastern bone snapped and he still finished the race on heart and three legs, beating the unbeatable mare.  He sired Gold Mount, who later sired Maddon's Bright Eyes, inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame in 1997.

In the early years of the American Quarter Horse industry, Leo was known primarily as a sizzling speed horse. Later, he gained a hefty reputation of being a leading sire. Both his sons and daughters excelled on the track and in the show ring. The many titles won by Leo's offspring proved he not only sired speed, but also athletic ability, including 24 AQHA Champions, 33 Performance Registers of Merit, 211 Race Registers of Merit, four Superior Halter Awards, two Superior Performance Awards, eight Superior Race Awards, one Supreme Champion and four Racing World Champions. These traits were passed down from generation to generation and many of Leo's sons and daughters became leading producers of quality foals. Although no one knows for sure, Leo reportedly won 20 of 22 races in his career but he will most be remembered for his outstanding offspring which have strengthened the American Quarter Horse industry.



 The Doc Bar Descendants - In the 1970's, Doc Bar was known for his halter get but not his performance.  Fizzabar, a Doc Bar daughter finished in the NCHA top 10 in 1967 but trainers hardly noticed the Doc Bar bloodlines until 1970 when Doc O' Lena, ridden by Shorty Freeman, won the NCHA futurity with a perfect score.  His brother, Dry Doc, won in 1971 and a daughter of Doc O' Lena, Lenaette, carried Freeman to the NCHA title again in 1975.  Horses with Doc Bar blood in them won the NCHA futurity six times in the 1970's. (Reference Horseman Magazine, 1980 Issue, Syndication of Doc O'Lena by David Gaines)  Another Doc O' Lena son, Smart Little Lena, would become the first horse to win the NCHA triple crown.

Doc O Dynamite was known as one of Montana's most versatile sires.  He had an outstanding show record himself and there will be no more of his babies as he was put down in 2003.  These horses are quick and most recently there are some Doc O Dynamite babies out there that are earning some money barrel racing.

Performance statistics include Big Sky Select 5-Year-Old Non-Pro Maturity Reserve Champion and 3rd in the Big Sky 4-Year-Old Open Derby.   An Equi-Stat All-time Leading Cutting Sire; Sire of earners of over $684,000 in AQHA, NRHA, and NCHA sanctioned events; 28 AQHA point-earners. He has sired champions in cutting, reining, roping and barrel racing. In addition to his cutting and reining offspring earnings, one barrel horse has earned $200,000, and his get have earned almost $100,000 in roping. Sire of winning barrel horses including Easy Does it Doc, earner of $200,000.

Paddy's Irish Whiskey (Peppy San Badger - Docs Starlight by Doc Bar) was purchased from the John Scott sale for $560,000 and was then syndicated for over a million dollars.  He is a full brother to Grays Starlight (deceased), Badgers Starlight and Gallo Del Cielo and stands at the Four Sixes Ranch in Texas with a stud fee  of $4,100 (2003 reference).  Paddy's Irish Whiskey is a AQHA Reserve World Champion sire who has performers in cutting, reining, reined cowhorse, roping, and versatility ranch competitions.  People are pleased with the versatility and minds of his good colts.

 Easy Jet

Perhaps no other racing American Quarter Horse has had a greater or more controversial racing career than Easy Jet. During his 2-year-old campaign, he was loaded into the gates 26 times, a feat that some think would have crippled most juveniles. Despite the criticism, he won 22 races that year, including the All American, Kansas, Sunland Fall, Columbus Triple Crown and the All-American Quarter Horse Congress Futurities. He was named World Champion Quarter Running Horse, Champion Stallion and Champion 2-Year-Old Colt. He hit the track again as a 3-year-old and was just as successful, attaining the titles of World Champion Racing American Quarter Horse and Champion Quarter Running 3-Year-Old Colt. He retired with 38 career starts that included 27 firsts, seven seconds and two thirds. As a sire, Easy Jet was equally impressive. By the end of 1993, his direct offspring had earned more than $25 million on the track. Additionally, he had sired more than 1,500 horses who had gained their Registers of Merit.

 Colonel Freckles (1973-1986)
1976 NCHA Open Futurity Champion

Colonel Freckles, sired by Jewel's Leo Bars out of a daughter of Rey Jay, won the 1976 NCHA Futurity. This was considered to be one of the toughest Futurities in the history of the event as the field included such exceptional cutting horses as Freckles Playboy, Doc's Oak, Doc's Remedy, Doc's Hickory, Doc's Mohagany, Montana Doc, Wyoming Doc, Doc Athena and Smooth Herman.

Colonel Lil, a daughter from his first foal crop, won the 1981 NCHA futurity. Though Colonel Freckles died in 1986, he was listed in 1997 issues of the Quarter Horse News as:
1st leading paternal grandsire of reined cowhorses
2nd leading maternal grandsire of reining horses
4th leading paternal grandsire of reining horses 14th leading maternal grandsire of reining cowhorses
 Freckles Playboy
1976 NCHA Open Futurity Reserve Champion

The news of Freckles Playboy's passing has flooded me with memories.

The first time I ever saw him was at the 1976 NCHA Futurity where he and Lynx Becky were Co-Reserve Champs. Colonel Freckles was the Champion. I actually always thought that Lynx Becky should have won, Freckles Playboy second and Colonel Freckles, third...but they didn't ask me to judge it :o)

A few weeks later, Freckles Playboy easily won the AQHA Jr. Cutting at the Sand Hills Rodeo and Stock Show at Odessa, Texas. Mr San Peppy Won the Senior cutting. Back in those days, they had a work-off between the Jr. & Sr. winners for the Champion Cutting Horse of the show. Freckles Playboy was young and bright...

Mr San Peppy was tired from years of hauling...he had just won his second NCHA World Championship and had become the first cutting horse to earn  $100,000. Freckles Playboy won the work-off and made Mr San Peppy look like a novice horse that day.

A year or two later, Freckles Playboy won the huge AQHA Senior Cutting at the Houston Livestock Show with a score of 152, I think. That doesn't sound all that high, as scores go, today. But, in those days, judging was much more conservative and a score of 146 to 148
would have usually won any cutting contest that had two judges. Freckles Playboy was awesome.....

Hollywood Gold


Hollywood Gold was one of the ranch stallions for the 6666 Ranch. He was an own son of Gold Rush( by Caliente) and Triangle Lady 17( Triangle Ranch mare). Hollywood Gold was one of the working ranch horses at the 6666 Ranch and was only shown in local ranch cuttings, roppings, and ect. "He was a Natural", said J.J. Gibson, it wasn't something he was taught because you can't teach it( cow sense), had a good nature, big pretty soft eyes, quick and smart ( could out think any cow in a hurry) and passed these traits on to his get". He sired some good sons, but his own daughters and grand-daughters went on to become cutting champions. Some of his get are: Hollywood Lin and Hollywood Cat ( NCHA Hall of Fame), Hollywood Ollie, Hollywood Snapper, and Mr Gold 95( NCHA Silver Awards), Miss Hollywood, and Hollywood Boy. Gibson seys, "None of us realized how great this horse was. I don't suppose we even started noticing until we took a good look at how his offspring were working on the ranch. They were all just like their daddy. We really didn't know how good he was until he was gone".
