Smart Chic O Lena

The legend Smart Chic Olena died  June 24 at the age of 27.Smart Chic Olena earned nearly $130,000 in his career as a cutting and reining horse.
He was the American Quarter Horse Association’s number-one leading sire of open performance horses, with 22 National Reined Cow Horse Association Futurity champions Chics Magic Potion and Smart Zanolena, and National Reining Horse Association Futurity champion Chic Please—which amassed millions in reining, cutting, and reined cow horse competition. (February 2004 issue, H&R article by Frank Holmes)
Smart Chic O Lena graced the cover  of Horse and Rider magazine in 2004, when he was quoted as “arguably the most potent all-around performance sire in the history of the breed.”
One of our broodmare is a daughter of Smart Chic O Lena, and has produced some wonderful sweet natured foals including the below sorrel gelding, who at three years old has matured nicely.
