Gay Bar Lena is a multi-event maternal grandsire with earnings of over $195,000. He is a grandson of Gay Bar King who was at one time toted as one of the greatest stallions of all time. We have long been fans of Gar Bar King and Gay Bar Lena and are excited to have that pedigree in our program now. What also really attracted Lethas Lena to us on the bottom was Peponita. We currently have 3 granddaughters of Peponita and really love what they have done for our program, so to be able to add another mare with that pedigree line was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up!
Lena is one of the most feminine and beautiful fillies. She broke out extremely well and entered our broodmare band this year. We pasture exposed her to our stallion Whoop Up Whiskey and got a really sweet 2019 bay filly, Whiskey Up Zena JW. Whoop is homozygous black legged and we got the expected bay foal! We are extremely excited to see how it is to merge these two families of pedigrees.She had 2020 off. She had a bay stallion by Whoop for 2021, Whiskey Up Basil JW. We are switching gears with her and exposed her to our 93% foundation perlino stallion Walter O Rielly for a 2022 foal and she had a buckskin colt, Eel Drift JW. She is back out in the pasture with Radar for a guaranteed color foal for 2023.
