12/3/16 Wild Wind and her BHF legacy, part 3

The American Saddlebred mare, Wild Wind, is a member of the Broodmare Hall of Fame.  Nineteen  of her female descendants are also in the BHF.  In order to enter the BHF, a mare must have at least 3 World's Champion or Reserve Wold's Champion offspring.  To date, Wild Wind is the beginning link in a chain of 6 uninterrupted mother to daughter BHF.  This is the only group of 6 among American Saddlebred Hall of Fame Broodmares. This post will look at all 19 mares, and who put them in the BHF.  Many had more than the necessary three WC offspring, or perhaps they were winners, but not World's Champions.  And of course, pictures aren't always available.  Heading up the list, we'll start with the grand matron herself.

1. Wild Wind  f. 1927  by Wild Rex out of Fanny Tucker
Her 3 WC & RWC offspring were:

As Beauty Does WCC by Sensation Rex
Front Cover RWC by King' s Genius

Next is Wild Wind's daughter

No picture of this mare is available.  Her granddaughter was:

WGC Valerie Emerald out of Crebilly's Hazel's Fortune,
2nd dam Crebilly's Whirlwind

The next generation is Crebilly's Whirlwind's daughter
3 Crebilly's Plumb Beautiful f. 1956 by Beau Fortune
again, no picture of this broodmare. Her pictured offspring is:

And CH Supreme Airs is also the next generation BHF

Her show ring stars included:

And Yorkshire Pudding was propelled into the BHF by
her grandson, WGC Marc of Charm

Now for the rest of the Wild Wind descendants  in the BHF.  They may not be in that string of mares in the greatest bottom line ever, but they're still great.  Here they are, or here are their colts.  It's a shame most of the broodmares are picture-less.
