Zantanon - Little Joe X Jabalina - Strait horse
- 1958; AQHA - P-234
What can I say about King? One of the great foundation
sires of the American Quarter Horse, his influence is still seen today. King is on the AQHA's All Time Leading Sires list
& has been inducted into the [respective] Hall[s] of Fame by the AQHA, NCHA & the NRHA.
This great bay horse
was line bred to Traveler 3X4, Sykes Rondo 4X5X4 and Locks Rondo 5X5.
Little Joe - Traveler X Jeanette -
Often under questionable
management, this tough bay horse was referred to as the "Mexican Man O War". After his racing career, Zantanon changed
hands & was brought across the border to change/influence the direction of the American Quarter Horse forever.
Traveler X Jenny - Sykes
1905 1929; pre-AQHA
Joe was by Traveler and out of a linebred Old Billy mare. At one time owned by George Clegg, for many years he was owned
& used as a breeding stallion by Ott Adams.
1885 [?] - 1910
Traveler was a 'mystery'
horse. The story goes that a horseman found him being used as a dray horse on the rail road line. Talent was
seen & the traces were lifted. Traveler went on to be a noted race horse on the bush tracks. Almost a century later, his
mark as a sire is still obvious. He was inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame in 1994.
