This mare is really quick on her feet and has shown us that she has
some serious heart as well! We will be flushing embryos out of
her to start her career as a broodmare while she begins to prove
herself as a performance horse as well. She is sweet and calm.
When you ride her she stays positive and retains what you taught
her. I have great hopes for her! She started her barrel
career with a futurity win and continued to make outstanding runs.
She has also become my husbands main Heeling Horse!

SMART LITTLE LENA
Little Lena has a phenomenal history in the world of
cutting. This 1979 stallion is cutting's leading sire
for the previous five years. His 524 money-earning
offspring have won $9,563,193 from 1995 to 2000. That
works out to an average of $18,250 per offspring.
Smart Little Lena was sired by 1970 NCHA Futurity winner
Doc O'Lena and out of Smart Peppy, a daughter of the
great Peppy San, the stallion and Bill Freeman swept
both go-rounds of the 782-horse 1982 Futurity, came in
second in the semi-finals by one point and then won the
finals with a 225, then the highest score in the history
of the event. The win was worth $264,085.
He went on to capture the 1983 Super Stakes and tie for
the 1983 Derby title, making him the first NCHA triple
crown winner. He was retired to stud less than a year
later with $743,275 in earnings, making him second on
the list of all-time money earning horses.
For a horse with such a fabulous post-Futurity history,
the Smart Little Lena legend began modestly enough. A
scrawny colt, he was bred by Hanes Chatham, Pilot Point,
Texas, who owned his dam. No bigger than a German
Shepherd when foaled in July 1979, Smart Little Lena was
started under saddle 25 months later by Chatham, who
intended to consign the colt to one of the upcoming
Futurity sales. In the meantime, Chatham sent Smart
Little Lena to neighbor Freeman for finishing. Freeman
was astounded at what he saw when he put the colt on
cattle, which confirmed Chatham's gut feeling about
Smart Little Lena: the horse had such phenomenal talent
that both believed he was fully capable of winning the
Futurity the next year.
Looking back, that was an almost outrageous sentiment to
hold, seeing as how the field would be overloaded with
talent. Of the 23 finalists in the 1982 Futurity, 20
were sired, like Smart Little Lena, by sons of Doc Bar.
No one horse had any more of chance than any other. But,
the cutting world had not yet seen the likes of this
Chatham, now fully realizing what he had, withdrew the
horse from the sale and went forward with plans to have
Freeman show him at the Futurity. Freeman wanted to own
the colt, but he lacked the funds to buy him, even at
the half interest Chatham was willing to sell. He
scraped up the money to buy his half interest by selling
all of his cattle that the bank actually owned and sold
syndication shares before the Futurity. With the money
Freeman made, he repaid the bank and together, he and
Smart Little Lena rode into cutting history. The story
nearly had a different ending. Three months before the
Futurity, Smart Little Lena and another Futurity colt
ingested blister beetle-infected hay. The other colt
died, but Smart Little Lena, although deathly sick for
two days, survived.
With the question of whether he could win the major
events overwhelmingly settled, Freeman and Chatham next
wondered if Smart Little Lena could pass on his
cow-smart sensibility, his great attitude and his
athleticism to his offspring. That question was
"smartly" answered during the 1987 Futurity, when his
first foal crop reached Futurity age. Smart Date, a
filly by Smart Little Lena and out of Trip Date Bar,
promptly won the Futurity with a 225, just as his sire
did five years earlier. A total of 23 Smart Little Lena
offspring competed in the Open that year, with six
making the semifinals and three advancing to the finals.
In the Non-Pro, 12 competed, with four making the
semifinals and two the finals.
During the nine Futurity sales in 1987, it was the same
story. The records show that 31 offspring sold for a
total of $567,450. The highest was Classy Little Lena,
which went for $85,000 during the NCHA prospect sale.
Smart Little Lena in a pedigree is still cutting magic.
He had 17 semifinalists in the three divisions of the
1999 NCHA Futurity led the '99 Futurity sales when 89
horses, or 84 percent of the 106 consigned, brought a
leading gross of $2,553,100 for an average of $28,687.
The leading sale horse, Mighty Fine Sue, was sired by
Smart Little Lena. The pretty yearling filly, out of
Meradas Little Sue, sold for $240,000.
His most recent Open Futurity winning offspring was Some
Kinda Memories, a mare that took the title in 1997, a
decade after Smart Date accomplished the feat. Some
Kinda Memories was Smart Little Lena's leading performer
over the past five years, earning $291,883, followed by
Pastels Smart Lena, $236,123; the Paint Smart Peppy
Lena, $235,761, and Jiggin Little Lena, $230,404.
2001- #1 Sire of Cutting winners is
again, Smart Little Lena. He is also ranked the #15
sire of Reined Cow Horse winners.
