Magnolia Whiskey aka Rio is a beautiful bay mare by Paddys Irish Whiskey. We acquired her from Wylie Gustafson of Cross 3 Quarter Horses. We have always owned several Paddys Irish Whiskey sons and Rio is one of three daughters we now own.
Paddys Irish Whiskey has NCHA earnings of $12,149 and was a Multiple Major Aged Event Finalist NCHA Money Earner. He is listed on a Leading Sire list each year since he was purchased by Paddys Irish Whiskey Syndicate, he is an NRCHA All-Time Leading Sire and an Equi-Stat All-Time Leading Reined Cow Horse Sire (2017). Foals have earned $1,630,688 and 5,211 AQHA points, 36 AQHA World/Res. World Championships including 2-time AQHA World Champion Versatility Ranch Horse Smart Whiskey Doc. As per the 6666’s website, Paddys Irish Whiskey has earned the respect as a consistent sire of both class and high-end trainability for all walks of the reining and cowhorse worlds, siring champions in versatility ranch horse, reined cowhorse, cutting, reining, calf roping and team roping. He is also a great broodmare sire. As a broodmare sire, foals have produced earners of more than $2,100,000.
Rio’s dam was never shown herself, but she is a producing daughter of High Brow Hickory out of a Doc Quixote daughter.
Rio has earned 14 AQHA pts. in heading and heeling. She qualified her 1st year of roping for the 2018 AQHA World Finals in JR Heeling where she placed in the Top Fifteen. She is a stout built mare with the athletic ability to really shine. We have also shown her in reined cow horse some where she placed 1st in the North Central RCHA 5 YO open class earning her $60 but heeling seemed to be her “thing”! Rio stayed sound and showed us her ability, so we decided it was time for her to have a baby for us. She had a bay roan filly by Bet Hesa Cat, Irish Whiskey Bet. We are very excited for this foal with intentions for it to be a keeper for ourselves. We exposed Rio to Jacks Our Bartender for a 2021 foal and she had a bay/bay roan filly Magnolia Bartender JW.
