(12-24-22) According to the December edition of the American Quarter Horse Racing Journal the Leading Earnings Sire is Apollitical Jess (2023 breeding fee $35,000) with 273 starters that earned $7,426,928, which is no surprise to anyone.

A look down the list and you will see at #54 Mr Ottyes who during 2022 had just 12 starters and 6 wins and winnings of $499,092. Those earnings are thanks to Otts Boy (gelding) who picked up the win at the Ruidoso Futurity. Impressive don’t you think?

His Sire Corona Cartel is the 2022 leading broodmare sire by winnings.

Mt. Ottyess with a breeding fee of just $2,500 may make him a bargain sire, with his top offspring, Otts Boy, winning the 2022 Ruidoso Futurity he is no longer a stranger. Five of his top producers from the same brood mare (Lovely Legs) shows he can produce quality racers. The bloodline will have to be passed on by two of his brood mares with Lovely Legs, but his three sons with the same mare are all geldings.

That makes Mr Ottyes one to consider.
