Colonel Freckles

Colonel Freckles, sired by Jewel's Leo Bars out of a daughter of Rey Jay, won the 1976 NCHA Futurity. This was considered to be one of the toughest Futurities in the history of the event as the field included such exceptional cutting horses as Freckles Playboy, Doc's Oak, Doc's Remedy, Doc's Hickory, Doc's Mahagany, Montana Doc, Wyoming Doc, Doc Athena and Smooth Herman. Colonel Lil, a daughter from his first foal crop, won the 1981 NCHA futurity. Though Colonel Freckles died in 1986, he is currently listed in 1997 issues of the Quarter Horse News as:

  • 1st leading paternal grandsire of reined cowhorses
  • 2nd leading maternal grandsire of reining horses
  • 4th leading paternal grandsire of reining horses
