Is Your Horse Famous?!

Is your horse famous? Or sired/out of someone famous? Perhaps you own a winning racehorse, or have brought home first place at a rodeo or jumping event.
Let's hear about them! (pictures are great too!!)

Personally, i don't own a famous horse but my 08 filly's grandsire is a famous cutting horse by the name of Smart Peppy Lena (full brother to Smart Little Lena).
Can't find a picture of him, but i have a crummy picture of my filly's sire Colonels Peppy Lena as well as my filly, Lovely Little Lena.

Not so much famous - But well known in my area. My little Arab won our Zone Sporting (Gameing) Championships 5 years in a row. The zone is made up of like 14 different clubs so it's a big comp. He is semi-retired from gameing now, unbeaten in half a decade :]

The TB gelding I had for a bit was sired by Pine Bluff: Pine Bluff (horse) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Lane's End Stallions

And a QH mare I helped rescue was the granddaughter of Streakin Six.

My Geldings parents aren't anything extroirdinaire, but his grandfather is Top Vantage, who was HYPP/NN:

Stallion Show Record for Top Vantage
Reserve World Champion
Top Ten World Show
Superior Halter
Quarter Horse Congress

Top Vantage is out of Impressive:
Stallion Show Record for Impressive
World Champion
Halter Point Earner

Who's father was Lucky Bars (TB) which links him to Three Bars (TB) (who was a Hall of Fame horse), Three Bars was bred to Fulfilment, who gets you to Man O' War and Fair Play, he also has wimpy, Joe Reed and some other big names...

This is fun!

My horse's sire's sire is Hollywood Dun It. Is that too far back?

He's reining bred, but he has been a very good Dressage horse :)

One of the quarter horses my family owns has Zippo Pine Bar bloodlines.
But then again he sired a ton of foals-not that impressive anymore =)
