Born 5-15-20 “Holly” is a sorrel based filly that does have a chance to shed out gray since her sire is gray. She has an star and a snip and a left rear half stocking. 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. For our foals who are not by our stallions, we chose pedigree names. A special side note is that on fillies we think about keeping we often pull out a favorite bloodline and Hollywood Gold in the bottom of PG Gunpowder’s pedigree is exciting to us. We have always loved the Hollywood Gold influence
Her dam, Sapa Mia Reed JW, is a mare we raised out of Little Sapa and JK Jay Reed. Take a good look at the speed pedigree on Mia’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 the be race horses, barrel horses and arena even horses and had plenty of cow. Little Sapa leaves Dash For Cash on Mia’s papers and also gives her Leroy Brown, Three Bars and Jet Deck through both Easy Jet and Jet Smooth. Mia’s sire is a 96% foundation bred stallion with Poco Pine, Continental King by King P-234, Joe Reed II and Whiskey Bert all on his papers. Her first foal with Whoop Up Whiskey, Whiskey Up Mesa JW, is now in Montana and her buyer came back to purchase a second horse in 2019. Her 2017 foal, Sarafina Drift JW was a smokey black that we kept for ourselves by Walter O Rielly. We are ranching on Sarafina and now call her Sci-Fi. Mia’s 2018 foal was also by Walter O Rielly, Australia Drift JW and is in Nevada. We hear wonderful things about her.
Holly’s sire is PG Gunpowder, a son of Playgun who has earned $18K+ in NCHA earnings and is a World Champion sire. 6666’s website states, “PG Gunpowder proved himself quickly as a sire with WS Snicklefritz, the 2009 NCHA Limited Rider Co-World Champion. Sired by all-time leading Playgun, he is out of a proven daughter of Peppy San Badger and granddaughter of Doc O’Lena - a cross that has produced earners of more than $3,500,000.”
We have been adding additional Playgun influence to our herd since 2016 and are thrilled to have a PG Gunpowder filly! Holly should have some old-time speed, cow and athletic ability to be a nice contender in the arena whatever the discipline may be and she will be a nice pairing with any of our Paddys Irish Whiskey sons in the future. We will be keeping her for now but talk to us if you are interested in her.
