Sire of AQHA Hall Of Fame, Country Classic. Rey Jay was bred by the King Ranch and foaled in 1955. The story of Rey Jays contribution to the Quarter Horse begins with his overcoming a handicap that allowed him to compete and out perform many of the industry's elite cutting horses. Rey Jay sustained an eye injury as a weanling that impaired the vision in his right eye. It is believed that when the eye was irritated and inflamed that he could see about 15% of his normal vision. This handicap became a trade mark of Rey Jays desire to succeed as a cutting horse, earning him a place in cutting horse history. Rey Jay earned his AQHA Championship, an AQHA Superior in cutting and the NCHA Bronze Award. They earned 257 cutting points, 12 halter points and 4.5 western pleasure points in the AQHA.
