Color should be the absolute last thing when looking at for breeding a horse.
What has your mare done to determine that she is breeding worthy? That picture does nothing to show her conformation.
You need to find a stallion that will suit your mare. Where she is faulty, he should be above excellent. And you should do your best to produce a top quality foal. It should be the whole package.
Do not just breed to the stallion down the street cause he's "pretty, cheap and closeby" find a good, well known stallion that will produce a foal with a good resale value.
If your looking into breeding for barrels. Look for Frenchmans Guy, Streakin Six, Dash For Cash, Dash Ta Fame, First Down Dash, Zevi, Judge Cash, Carona Cartel, Triple Vodka and other big names.
The stallion I'm breeding to in the future is Ain't Seen Nothing Yet. He's correct, affordable and has an amazing pedigree. His owner is incredibly nice but she does have to have good pictures and pedigree to approve mares. This year she bred 100+ mares and he is shipping with an incredible sperm count.
The best thing you can do is create a wanted foal. Not wanted through your biased eyes, but the horse-world's eyes. You need to breed for a marketable foal, even if you never sell the resulting foal.
