Born 6-28-13. We are having a little fun by using a Dance theme for names this year. Hula has an odd shaped star and strip and a rear white ankle. We are very happy with the outcome of this pairing. We purchased her dam, Little Sapa, fall of 2009 knowing she would make a nice match for any of our stallions and hoping for her to produce fillies with a little more speed for us to retain in our program and cross back on the other stallions. Take a good look at the speed pedigree on Hula’s bottom side. According to Circle Dot Horses, Mia Cash Too was a gentle, AAA Stakes Place Winner with a nice disposition who ran the 3rd fastest qualifying time in the All-American Derby. Mia Cash Too sired foals that went on to be race horses, barrel horses, arena horses and also had plenty of cow. Little Sapa leaves Dash For Cash on Hula’s papers and also give her Three Bars and Jet Deck through both Easy Jet and Jet Smooth. Hula’s sire is Walter O Rielly aka Radar. Radar is new to our program. We were looking for a foundation bred Driftwood bred stallion to hopefully get some replacement fillies out of some of our better mares and we got one. Radar is 90.234% NFQHA bred perlino stallion that goes to King P-234 ten times, to Driftwood four times with strong doses of Joe Reed, Three Bars and a little Doc Bar. He is a 16 hand horse with a huge stride and a gentle personality. We are very pleased with his first two foals. Hula will have speed and has a gorgeous look about her. At this point, she is not for sale as we plan to grow her out, get her started under saddle, determine her abilities, ride her some on the ranch and have her make her way to the broodmare bunch.
UPDATE 5-24-16. Hula has excellent conformation and we are pleased with her as our first Walter O Rielly filly that we have retained. She IS a Smoky Black and as a broodmare in our program she can produce buckskins, palominos or perhaps other smoky blacks. She was started under saddle and showed us that she is trainable. She is friendly and catchable about anywhere.
She was bred TRR Paddys Texas Gin for a 2017 foal and had a bay stallion, Paddys Gin Rafiki JW. She will have 2018 off. We are super excited about this cross and so are many of our prospective buyers that we visit with. She is a super great mama too. We are hopeful for a long future of Hula being paired up with our various Paddys Irish Whiskey sons.
