Kid Coolsified Becomes First $1 Million Halter Sire
The American Quarter Horse Association is excited to share a pivotal moment in American Quarter Horse history. This fall, Kid Coolsified became the halter industry’s first $1 million sire.
As of November 9, Kid Coolsified’s get have officially amassed $1,107,969, according to Robin Glenn Pedigrees, a subsidiary of AQHA. That total is expected to increase after results are processed from the All American Quarter Horse Congress, where Kid Coolsified offspring scored in multiple classes and divisions.
A 2000 chestnut stallion by Kid Clusified and out of Coolsie Coosa by Ima Cool Skip, Kid Coolsified was bred by Scott Haack’s Arcadia Farm in Spring Lake, Michigan. In 2003, “Coos” was purchased by Kelli Jensen of Freeland, Michigan. During that storybook year, Kelli’s husband, Steve, showed Coos to amateur 3-year-old stallion championships at the AQHA World Championship Show and Congress, while AQHA Professional Horseman Ted Turner Jr. of Aubrey, Texas, showed Coos to Congress and AQHA World championships in the open division, including the grand champion stallion title at the Congress.
Following his open world championship, Kid Coolsified retired to stud under the management of Rick and Julie Leek of Dryden, Michigan. Through his 12 foal crops, Coos has sired 594 registered foals, 174 of whom are point earners. His point earners have set the halter ring on fire, earning 7,921.5 total points, 206 Registers of Merit, 26 AQHA world championships, 20 AQHA reserve AQHA world championships and three year-end high-point titles. He has sired 244 money earners, who have posted average earnings of $4,541.
