Born 5-24-16. Some years we do a fun theme for names. This year we decided to go with American Made Muscle Cars from the 50s, 60s and 70s. We have had some fun researching them. This stud colt is named after the 1969-1973 Ford Mustang Mach I.
‘Mach’ is a bay stallion with an irregular shaped star and disconnected strip and two matching rear white ankles. This is the first foal for this pairing. We purchased his dam, Little Sapa, fall of 2009 knowing she would make a nice match for any of our stallions and hoping for her to produce fillies with a little more speed for us to retain in our program and cross back on the other stallions. We have kept back two of her daughters by other stallions who have also entered the broodmare bunch; Sapa Mia Reed JW and Sapa Hula Drift JW. Take a good look at the speed pedigree on Mach’s bottom side. According to Circle Dot Horses, Mia Cash Too was a gentle, AAA Stakes Placed Winner with a nice disposition who ran the 3rd fastest qualifying time in the All-American Derby and sired foals that went on to be race horses, barrel horses, arena horses and also had plenty of cow. Little Sapa leaves Dash For Cash on Mach’s papers and also gives him Three Bars and Jet Deck through both Easy Jet and Jet Smooth.
This is Sapa’s first foal by Whoop Up Whiskey. ‘Whoop’ is a 2010 son of Paddys Irish Whiskey and out of a great John Scott mare, My Little Sugar Babe. The Paddys Irish Whiskey horses are making a name for themselves in everything from cutting to cowhorse events to roping horses and are very versatile. A key difference between Whoop Up Whiskey and our other PIW son, TRR Paddys Texas Gin, is the dam pedigree. While both dams go back to Doc O Lena, Whoop’s goes to Doc O Dynamite who also stood at the John Scott Ranch. Doc O Dynamite was an Equi-State leading cutting sire from 1999-2005 who produced money earners and according to his performance record, his daughters have produced many money earning foals in AQHA, NCHA, NRHA and NRCHA. Doc O Dynamite has a pedigree that traces back to Three Bars giving a bit more stretch and speed to his offspring and shows up on the pedigree of many arena and speed event horses. Whoop Up Whiskey aka Whoop brings that little more height and length and speed to our program as compared to TRR Paddys Texas Gin. He has excellent bone, athleticism and conformation. His lineage tells us that his offspring will have cow and will be capable of performing at any level.
Sapa and Whoop are disposition plus horses. Mach will have all the right moves to go any direction in the cowhorse world from cutting, reining, versatility, reined cowhorse, rodeo performance, or just all around ranch horse. We are seeing a lot of style and grace in these Whoop babies. Don’t forget the speed pedigree Mach carries top and bottom! He could also make a great barrel prospect. Mach was born out on pasture with the stallion already out. He has not yet had his tail hairs pulled for a genetic test to determine if he is a carrier for GBED. There is a 50/50 chance he will carrier this. GBED does not affect the individual at all. If he would used as a stallion prospect, he would just need to be bred to non-carrier mares. He is for sale.
UPDATE 11-5-16. Mach is a super nice colt and we are very happy with how he developed. He is the first for his pairing and we are happy with that. We wish him and his new family good luck as they ranch on him in Colorado and see if they can make him into a versatile ranch and family and performance horse.
