With sound minds to go along with electric speed, the progeny of Coronado Cartel are a perfect fit for the ambitious plans of Reliance Ranches. Already a top breeder of racing Quarter Horses, Reliance is heavily invested in its Second Career Program and in bringing the awesome traits of Corona Cartel into the performance horse world.

Like his Hall of Fame sire, the stunning Coronado Cartel stood out in his racing career, collecting $416,178 in 12 starts on the track before moving to the breeding shed. His racing progeny are already in the bank for $6.9 million with 185 race winners.

As his first sons and daughters begin to reach the arena, it’s evident that Coronado Cartel is passing on not only his magnificent athleticism but also an early maturing, sound mind that is needed to stand out in the arena.

“The genetics certainly suggest they will have success,” Bobby Mote, who runs the Second Chance Program, said. “We don’t have that many out there yet.”

Despite limited numbers, Coronado Cartel’s performance progeny have racked up $85,516, a large chunk of that attributed to SR Roman Cartel who shined at the 2023 Pink Buckle Barrel Race.
