Lady Luck played a hand in his name, but Three Bars TB hit the jackpot when he began his career as a sire. Bred on James W. Just days after the purchase, Myrtle Dee foaled a good-looking chestnut colt. The men named the foal Three Bars, hoping he would pay off like a slot machine. Goode placed the colt in race training as a two-year-old, but leg problems kept Three Bars from winning until he was 3. He was injured as a 3-year-old and spent most of recuperating.
American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame
In Memory of past horses
He is a son of Parkers King Pride To date approx. He has many palomino horses in his pedigree. He is a very stout, heavy hips, wide chest, thick body, no white, and many dark points of black to accent his bronze gold buckskin color. This horse is bred to do cutting and about any kind of performance with very dominant breeding for Palomino and Dun yellow horses. He is the image of the famous Poco Bueno, and his foals to date are living proof of the value of such legends as Wimpy, Peppy, King, and Poco Bueno.
Doc Bar revolutionized the cutting industry in a way never seen before or since. The chestnut colt was bred to run, but failed miserably. The chestnut stood a scant 15 hands and did not have the punched-together look of his contemporaries.
Ground breaking construction of the Hall of Fame Museum began in Many of the paintings are by the western artist Orren Mixer. There are interactive exhibits about horse anatomy, horse riding and disciplines of the American Quarter Horse.
