Hoofbeats from the past....


I've always been a fan of Rutland Ranch horses. Horse breeding is said to be an art. In that respect, I think some people are artists when it comes to selectively breeding stock. I believe Guy Ray Rutland was one of those people. 

Pacific Bailey

Pacific Bailey

Gold Pacific - Gold King Bailey X Nell Bert McCue - Wyatt McCue
1963; AQHA - 325585 

A  truly great race horse, Pacific Bailey had the unique combination of speed, athleticism and good looks.  With a SI-100, Pac had 24 starts with 13 wins, 4 seconds & LTEs of $15,073. In the process, he was a stakes winner & set 4 track records. In the show ring, he earned 24.0 halter points with 7 grands & 6 reserves. 

Pacific Bailey  was an AQHA Champion by the age of four with a race ROM [earned in 1965] & a Superior in racing [earned in 1966].  

His foals picked up where he left off. He was a leading sire of race ROM qualifiers, & his performers included stakes winners, Superiors [race, performance & halter], arena ROMs, AQHA Champions [open & youth] as well as World & reserve World Champions. Pacific Bailey sired more AQHA foals than any other horse in the 20th century.

King line


Old Joe Bailey

Old Joe Bailey [of Wetherford]
Eureka - Shelby X Susie McQuirter - Little Ben Burton 
1907 - 1934
The first and, argueably, the most noted 'Joe Bailey', he was linebred to Old Shiloh & Steel Dust. [In the days before registration, name duplication was common.] He ws bred by Dick Baker of Weatherford, TX & later owned by Texan, E.A. Whiteside. Horses from Old Joe Bailey's lines went on to excel on the track & in the performance arena.
