Greek Island - Margie's Babe (*Royal Martin)

Oklahoma Bound (deceased) was our foundation sire. A serious injury to his withers as a youngster prevented him from racing or competing, but he proved to be an unqualified success as a sire of champion show hunters, from early in his stud career until well after his death in 1995. His offspring have won numerous championships in hunter divisions, and, with their wonderful temperament, durability, talent, and presence, have been particularly successful as mounts for juniors and amateurs at "A" Circuit shows. Most of his youngsters show exceptional movement and lovely form over fences and remarkable winning consistency. We retained his two best sons -- Apollo's Fire and Icy Adonis -- for our stud, and their first youngsters, who exhibit the same Oklahoma Bound quality, are just now entering the show arena. We also retained a number of Oklahoma Bound's daughters for our broodmare band, crossing them with the big, bold, black Valley's Rounder, and their youngsters are also just starting their show careers.

While Okie is no longer with us, we are looking forward to his continuing legacy of excellence with the offspring of his sons and daughters in the years ahead. To see just a few of Okie's champion sons and daughters, please refer to the front page and Champions section of our web site.

Some Pedigree Notes

ImbrosPolynesian
ImbrosPolynesian

The grey California-bred Greek Island won the Clasico Jockey Club in Mexico, and eight other races in his twenty-four starts, but sired very few youngsters before his death. His sire, IMBROS, won fifteen of his thirty-four races, including the 1-1/16 mile California Stakes, beating Determine, and the one mile Will Rogers Stakes, and sired some good runners, including Racing Hall of Famer NATIVE DIVER, the first California-bred to win over one million dollars. The long-running Preakness winner POLYNESIAN gained everlasting fame by siring the famous NATIVE DANCER. In addition to producing IMBROS, the mare FIRE FALLS was the dam of a good, long-running California handicapper HALTAFIRE and was second dam of the California-based multiple graded stakes winner and sire, FIGHTING FIT, a sire of 76% winners from starters who is also used as a sport horse sire.


TeddyBull Dog

Imported TEDDY, a good race horse in Spain during World War II, became an influential racehorse sire in the U.S. through his sons Sir Gallahad III and Bull Dog, and in Europe through his Italian son, the great Ortello, and Teddy is seen in the pedigrees of many famous show jumpers through his sons and daughters. Among the impressive roster of show jumpers who descend from BULL DOG are Pan American Games medalists A LITTLE BIT, DO RIGHT, and BROTHER SAM, and USET horses RADNOR II and WHITE LIGHTNING.

FAIR TRIAL was a long-running stakes winner in England and later leading sire there; his son, the handsome COURT MARTIAL, in turn twice leading sire in England, is seen in sport horse pedigrees, and another son, COURVILLE became a leading sire of show jumpers in Holland.

The brown JUNIOR (1909) was a hard, sound stayer who won ten of his thirty-four races, including the Chesterfield Cup (10 furlongs), the Ebor Handicap (1-3/4 miles), and the Manchester Cup; in the stud he sired 96 winners of 248 races, and thirty winners of 106 races over fences.

The grey ABERNANT was England's fastest horse in the post-World War II years, a brilliant sprinter and winner of 14 of his 17 races. He was "the most docile of colts," blessed with a beautiful temperament that persists to this day in Oklahoma Bound youngsters. In addition to his speedy flat-racing offspring, he sired the great show jumper ABERLI, first a member of the Italian Equestrian Team, and later Kathy Kusner's partner for USET, winning in 1967 both the Ladies European Championship in Fontainebleu, and the Puissance at Achen. Abernant also got ABGAR, a very modest steeplechaser who was purchased to Holland, where he became the powerhouse sire of show jumpers and extremely influential in Dutch warmblood breeding. His KWPN sons included top show jumper and sire OMMEN; VOLKMAR, a leading sire of FEI dressage horses; PION, an international show jumper and sire of six approved KWPN sons and of the show jumper BOOMERANG. Abgar daughters produced such horses as top jumper V.I.P. and the international dressage and show jumping sire ZEOLIET. Yet another son of Abernant was Aberconway, who sired New Zealand-bred ABERLOU, one of the most successful sires of event horses in the world, whose offspring include the world champion and Olympic medalist MESSIAH, the top three-day mare DELTA (second at Badminton and Burghley), and many other eventers and show jumpers. Abernant's sire, OWEN TUDOR, was also influential in sport horse pedigrees -- the famous Dutch jumping stallion LUCKY BOY and the influential dressage sire LAURIE'S CRUSADER both descend from Owen Tudor.

Margie's Babe's Background

Margie's Babe was unraced and had only four foals, only one of which made it to the race track. She was a very close genetic relative to the handsome chestnut MARTIN'S WORRY, a sire of hunter, jumper and combined training champions in Canada and the U.S., and among the leading sires in the Canadian Sport Horse Association five times. Both Margie's Babe and Martin's Worry were by imported ROYAL MARTIN, and out of mares by imported MUSTANGO. Royal Martin's sire, imported ROYAL CHARGER, was a good winner in England and became a leading sire of race horses in the U.S.; a number of Canadian Equestrian Team and USET jumpers descended from Royal Charger, including Gold Medal winners CANADIAN CLUB and VOLUNTEER, Grand Prix winner JOHNNY'S POCKET, and USET Nations Cup jumper BONTE II.

REVEILLON was an exceptionally handsome chestnut and top two year old who injured himself before his Epsom Derby start and retired to stud; he was frequently among the leading sires of jumpers. Reveillon's dam, VESPER BELL, was a winner on the flat, who also produced the Champion English two year old filly of 1933, CAMPANULA, who went on to win the One Thousand Guineas at age three.

SOLARIO was a stayer who won the Doncaster St. Leger and the Ascot Gold Cup, among other top races for distance horses, and was leading sire in England in 1937; Grand National winner Nicolaus Silver and Irish Grand National winners Royal Approachand Kerforo were his grandsons in tail-male descent, and the famous Welton event horses descend from him in tail-male.

Son-in-LawCoup de Lyon
Son-in-LawCoup de Lyon

SON-IN-LAW, to whom Oklahoma Bound traces five times, was a tough stayer who won some of the top distance races in England and went on to become leading sire in England, twice. He became a powerful influence on sport horse breeding through his famous grandsons, FURIOSO, principal founder the Anglo-Norman (Selle Francaise) breed, and COTTAGE SON, an enormous influence in the development of the Holsteins. Many winners of the Grand National Steeplechase at Aintree and the Cheltenham Gold Cup, and Holstein foundation sires MARLON and LADYKILLER also trace to Son-in-Law. Son-in-Law was grandsire of the aforementioned FAIR TRIAL, and was also grandsire of COUP DE LYON, seen in Margie Babe's pedigree. COUP DE LYON was a good runner in England, his wins including the Hastings Stakes at Newmarket and Manchester's Royal Standard Stakes; he went on to become a top sire of steeplechasers, and a grandson, What a Myth, won the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Okie also traces to Son-in-Law through Abernant's dam, Rustom Mahal, and through Buzz Fuzz's sire, The Recorder.

MUSTANG was a strongly-made bay colt who won Ascot's Gordon Carter Handicap and Newmarket's Sutton Handicap, his best distance being a mile; in the stud, he was extremely versatile, getting winners on the flat and over fences. Among his flat winners was THIRTEEN OF DIAMONDS , who won the Irish Derby by eight lengths and later won the 1-1/2 mile Washington's Birthday Handicap in the U.S., MUNCH, one of the fastest fillies in England in her time, and TANGLE, winner of eleven races who later sired some top steeplechasers, including Champion Hurdle winner Kirriemuir and Ben Stack (winner of Cheltenham's Two Mile Champion Chase). MUSTANG'S good racers over fences included QUITA QUE, a top class steeplechaser who won Cheltenham's Two Mile Champion Chase and was twice second in the Champion Hurdle, and the good steeplechase mare SEA FURY. Mustang's sire, the French-bred MIEUXCE, was a good-tempered, fast stayer who won the Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) and the prestigious Grand Prix de Paris, as well as three other good races, and later became an outstanding broodmare sire. He also sired winners over obstacles.

In Okie's tail-female line, a notable horse was the 1943 U.S. Champion Steeplechaser, BROTHER JONES, who won ten top chases, including the American Grand National, and the Temple Gwathmey Memorial twice. He was a son of MARIDEL, a daughter of imported Durbar II. The stallion FLARES was a great stayer, winner of the 2-1/2 mile Ascot Gold Cup in England; his sire was American Triple Crown winner Gallant Fox, and his dam, FLAMBINO, a winner of the Gazelle Stakes and also dam of Omaha, was a daughter of imported WRACK, and her dam, the good race mare FLAMBETTE, was by Durbar II. Wrack won over hurdles and was a good stayer on the flat, and was grandsire of an American Grand National winner and two Maryland Hunt Cup winners.
