JET OF HONOR a sorrel stallion born in Norman, Oklahoma in 1971. He earned a SI 102, set a new track record at 350 yards (17.78), Stakes Winner of 8 races, 3 places & 2 shows and $15,780 in 24 starts. When he was a young stallion, JOH stood in Okanogan Falls, BC for many years. In his life he sired 1,148 foals in 20 crops. He had 353 starters with 4,778 starts. 172 winners had 677 wins, 32 of those being stakes wins spread among 17 stakes winners with another 20 being stakes placed. Total $ won on the track by sons and daughters is $1.364 million (that is almost exclusively on Northwest tracks; not high dollar tracks). I remember watching outstanding offspring of JOH running when I was young when I spent much of my spare time at the tracks around the Northwest. They were fast, hard knocking, sound and sensible. He was bred to the best mares the Northwest could offer and many that were purchased at the Heritage Place Sale especially to breed to him. Then he was purchased and shipped to back to his home state of Oklahoma to be commercially appreciated for the superior animal he was. His last crop of registered foals was 172 strong; his largest crop ever.
In addition to being very fast, Jet Of Honor sons and daughters are known for being truly versatile performers. In the age that versatility ruled, he sired two halter point earners with 4 halter points. But the offspring of JOH REALLY showed their mettle in the Rodeo arena and AQHA show arena in speed events; 152 performance point earners with 3,369 open points, 1,411 amateur points, 402 youth points among them. These horses earned 59 open, 64 amateur and 33 youth ROM and 14 of them earned 15 open and 4 amateur superior performance awards. Rodeo performance records are harder to gather... Bear with me...I'm working on doing that.
They have great minds to go with their tremendous speed and athletic ability making them very trainable and also making hard things easy for them. Jet of Honor horses are among some of the best horses in the world; never being left out of any discussion of top rodeo/barrel horse bloodlines. With his last crop being foals of 1996, Jet of Honor continues to stay ranked on the leading Barrel sires lists many years after his death. As his last crop become older and are retired to stud or broodmare duty, his is now firmly in place on the leading paternal and maternal grandsires lists.
