Overview

Just like the previous two Legends books, this one also profiles a number of stallions and several mares who gained fame in the American Quarter Horse Association. While some of them played roles in the formation of the breed, others are more contemporary. Some gained fame on the track, while others carved their niches in the show ring, and some did both. Many are also household names in the Quarter Horse industry because of their additional impact on the breed as sires and dams.

Read an Excerpt

From chapter titled "Hollywood Jac 86"

Despite his name, Hollywood Jac 86 didn't look like a celebrity. He wasn't handsome. He wasn't big. He wasn't at all impressive at the end of a lead shank. He was a 14.3, sandy-colored palomino with a dark-dorsal stripe and floppy ears. Yet when Hollywood Jac stepped to center stage, he had undeniable star power. His drop-to-the-basement way of stopping literally revolutionized the style of reining. He passed this ability on so consistently that it became the signature trait of the Hollywood Jac family line.

Hollywood Jac 86 was bred by John and Mary Bowling of Sumner, Iowa. The Bowlings were well known for their strong performance lines. They owner Jac's sire, Easter King, an own son of King P-234. Their broodmare band boasted more than 2 dozen daughters of Hollywood Gold, who was known in the 1950s and 60s as the "King of the Cutting Horse Sires." Among those daughters was Miss Hollywood, herself a Register of Merit-earner. In 1967, she foaled Hollywood Jac 86.
