3/29/14 Judy O'Lee (BHF)

3/29/14   Earlier this week I posted a photo of Judy O'Lee.  A lot of people saw the photo, but there were no guesses as to her identity, so I took that as a sign.  Judy would be the topic of the week.  She was the foundation mare for Ruxer Farms and a regular producer.  Starting at age 5 and going until she was 19, she produced 3 geldings, 1 breeding stallion and 8 mares.  Of her eight daughters, four were in the Broodmare Hall of Fame.  Although she may have been best known as the 2nd dam of Supreme Sultan, she figures in many modern pedigrees through multiple branches of her family tree.   Her pedigree is interesting, with Kathryn Haines appearing twice in her third generation.  Her sire, Leatherwood King, was one of the five full brothers resulting from the King's Genius/Kate Haines cross.

Listed below is the list of her producing daughters and her stallion son, along with some of the major sons and daughters that they produced.  Each generation is indented and this only goes out 2 generations, but it is crystal clear that she figures in the pedigrees of many great American Saddlebred breeding  horses.  Although most of her babies were by Wing Commander, she had equally good ones by several other sires.
