Last week looked at his daughters, so this week will look at the breeding sons of Kalarama Rex.
It's hard to believe that with this much fire power, there are very few stallions today tracing directly to Kalarama Rex on the sire line. See bottom of page for some of those stallions.

So what living stallions still trace to Kalarama Rex? There are probably more than what are
mentioned here, so let us know if you can think of some we missed.
Rifles and Roses and his son The Pistol
trace back thru Night of Folly to Society Rex and Kalarama Rex.
The Pistol's dam was by Phi Slama Jama, so he traces to Whyworry Chieftess.
Caisson and Pacific Mist both trace thru Broadland's Kilarney to
Kalarama Colonel to Kalarama Rex. They were both
pictured in part 3 of Glorious grays
