Bred For ???

So I was trying to look into my fillies breeding and I have no clue what she was actually bred for. Her dam is a registered AQHA Hanks Red Ace.

I am thinking maybe she was bred for halter... because of her small feet, although she is still young and they could grow. She is going to be used as a riding horse, and I am a bigger rider.

Her build is not a bulldog build, but not really really fine boned, although she is still a fine boned quarter horse. I do not who her sire is. All I know is he is a registerable quarter horse.

She is kind of cowy, has speed, near perfect and fast stops (sliding stops on her own) and she turns on a dime. She moves really nice and would excel in western pleasure, but will be used for barrel racing in the long future. I might get her into cutting or penning, and she will have reining training done before barrel racing training.

She is 2 years old this year.

Based on the pictures below, and her dams pedigree, what do you think she is bred for?

She looks butt high (downhill type)-- built for speed. [in the last picture.]

As a 2 yo it's possible she'll even up a bit. I think she looks like a solid working-type horse that could go in many different directions. Looks athletic.

I would also be interested in who her sire is.

Toto---Her sire... Lol, I would like to know to! The breeder of her won't tell me who he is, as she did not register him before selling him. She said he was jet black, but that is all I know. I have asked her if she remembers who his parents are, so I can track his bloodlines, but she has said that she doesn't know.

Breeze is not registered for this reason. The only way I can register her is if I track down who bought her sire and see if they registered him. If they did register him, then I can register Breeze, but I have no way of tracking down his owners... also, doesn't the original breeder of the foal have to sign the papers? (I wouldn't know, I have never registered a horse, or even had a registered one)

As for the bum high thing... She just turned 2 years old, and I think she will even out a little more, but she is fairly even already, just doesn't look that way in pictures.

I am thankful for your input and I only hope to hear more!

My Quarter Horse looked about like her when he was a two year old. He's a little over three now & he's muscled up & looks great. He's short & stocky, & I have the same problem, except his sire was registered & his dam was eligible to be registered. I'm going to train my boy to run barrels & maybe get him into a little roping, depends on how big he measures out when he's fully grown. He's 15H now so I'm thinking he'll mature to 15.2 or so.
She's a gorgeous horse & I love that blue eye! She'd get some looks in the show ring that's for sure.

Thanks! I am going to use her for western pleasure as a 3 year old, and then move on to reining as a 4 year old, and as a 5 year old, get her into barrels. Eventually I would like her to be a been-there-done-that kind of horse, and use her as a ranch horse, roping, cutting, penning, etc, and maybe even get a foal out of her in the future (for me to have)

Right now she is about 14.2 hh and I am thinking she will mature to 15-15.3hh but other people have said they think she will mature to about 16hh+.
