Born 4/23/20 ‘Odessa’ is a bay mare with a butterfly shaped star and a disconnected narrow strip that almost looks like a downward pointed arrow. She has no white on her feet. We have chosen two themes this year to name our foals, one is using names of Texas cities or towns and the other to continue with western names for only our Whoop foals.
Sapa Hula Drift JW has excellent conformation and we are pleased with her as our first Walter O Rielly daughter that we have retained. She IS a Smoky Black and as a broodmare in our program she can produce buckskins, palominos or perhaps other smoky blacks. She was started under saddle and showed us that she is trainable. She is friendly and catchable about anywhere. Hula’s sire, Walter O Rielly, is 90.234% NFQHA bred perlino stallion that goes to King P-234 ten times, to Driftwood four times with strong doses of Joe Reed, Three Bars and a little Doc Bar. This is our very first mare we have kept for ourselves from him to cross back on our Paddys Irish Whiskey stallions. We are extremely excited to see what Hula continues to do for our program. Hula is out of a past mare, Little Sapa. Take a good look at the speed pedigree on Hula’s bottom side. According to Circle Dot Horses, Mia Cash Too was a gentle, AAA Stakes Place Winner with a nice disposition who ran the 3rd fastest qualifying time in the All-American Derby. Mia Cash Too sired foals that went on to be racehorses, barrel horses, arena horses and also had plenty of cow. Little Sapa leaves Dash For Cash on Hula’s papers and also give her Three Bars and Jet Deck through both Easy Jet and Jet Smooth. This is her third foal. Her 2017 Paddys Gin Rafiki JW went to be in KY. Her 2019 foal, Paddys Gin Sahara JW is headed to Illinois.
This is Tex’s 12th foal crop. He puts very thick and muscular foals on the ground with very nice muscle expression on them as well as a lot of athleticism and as they develop they have a lot of vigor. The oldest ones have been started under saddle by various buyers and we are hearing good things from all of them. 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—Tanquery Gin, Doc O’Lena, Docs Starlight, Poco Tivio, Peppy San Badger.
Odessa should have a nice disposition, giving every indication plus speed and cow combination. She should be able to be an all-around performance horse, but barrel racers need to take notice of the speed she adds on her bottom side. Her 2019 full brother, Paddys Gin Sahara JW, has stuck around through the winter and early spring so we were able to watch him mature and we are very pleased with this cross. We will be keeping her for now but do please let us know if you are interested in her.
