In 1940, Stroop and Gallaher held a dispersal sale of their Bettydot Stables, and Wild Wind was heavily advertised as the jewel of their sale. She sold with her 1940 foal, Front Cover, for the sale topping sum of $2750. Wild Wind's final move was to James K. Robinson, Crebilly Farm in West Chester Pennsylvania. There she was bred to the farm-owned stallions Sensation Rex and Beau Fortune, and one time to Nawbeek Farms' stallion Colonel Sport. Nawbeek Farm was owned by William Robinson, brother to James K Robinson.
This post is going to look at those of her foals sired by King's Genius that bred on and some still have descendants out there today. Three reside in my barn.
Front Page Lady, foaled 1932
She was a World's Champion in the 5 Gaited division. Although she produced six foals of her own, only one bred on and her line appears to have died out.
