About Chicado V in brief
Chicado V was a Champion Quarter Horse race horse foaled in 1950. She was bred by Frank Vessels of Los Alamitos, California, and trained by Earl Holmes. She won her first two starts while breaking or equaling track records, and was given the title of co-Champion Quarter Running Two-Year-Old Filly by the American Quarter Horse Association in 1952. Her knees would not allow her to be raced often, and she only started once more as a two-year-old, a 220-yard race at Bay Meadows Racetrack. After her last race, in December 1953, she was retired from the track to become a broodmare, and had nine foals. Two of her offspring were named Champion Quarter Running Horses, and all her foals had a total of seven stakes race wins. Three of Chicado V’s sons were her best known offspring; all three became leading sires and are the main cause of her fame. In 2006 she was inducted into the AQHA’s American Quarterhorse Hall of Fame in 2006.
She is buried at the San Diego County Museum of Racing and Racing History, along with her owner, Frank VesselS, her breeder, and her owner’s horse, Senor Bill, her half-sister, Clabber II and Do Win, two other outstanding racehorses. In her win at Pomona, the site of her first win, she lowered the track record for the 350-yard distance from 18. 1 to 17. 9 seconds. As a racehorse, Chicado V ran up a record of three wins, one second, one third, and one third in six years. She never broke down or became unable to run, although she never ran down or broke down, and never ran again. She died in December 2013, at the age of 83. She had nine daughters, one of whom, Table Tennis, went on to be a noted broodmare herself, as did Table Tennis’ daughter Rapid Volley and granddaughter Perks.
