A registered Thoroughbred, Cherry Lake raced mostly on the Quarter Horse racetracks and made her mark on the Quarter Horse breed in the breeding shed.

Life[edit]

Cherry Lake was a registered Thoroughbred mare, the daughter of Lake Erie and out of a daughter of Nechao named Cherao.[1] Her sire was a son of the U. S. Triple Crown winner War Admiral while her dam was a granddaughter of Nearco and a great-granddaughter of Hyperion.[1] She was a 1966 foal.[2]

In her racing career she started both Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred races. On the quarter tracks, her record was twenty-one starts, ten wins, four seconds and two thirds in three years. She earned a Speed Index rating of 97 and was a stakes race winner. Her total quarter track earnings was $16, 651.00.[2] As a three year old she started nine times on the Thoroughbred tracks, with three wins and a third place finish and earnings of $6109.00.[3] As a four year old she raced twice on the Thoroughbred tracks, with one win for $935.00.[4]

Among her foals were Cash Rate, Flow of Cash, Six Popper and Counting The Cash.[5] Six Popper won the All American Derby in 1986 and Cash Rate was the 1985 World Champion Quarter Running Horse.[5] Cherry Lake died July 1, 1993.[5]

She was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Association's (or AQHA) AQHA Hall of Fame.[6]
