Joe Hancock

Joe Hancock, considered by some to be the greatest Quarter Horse that ever lived
The Greatest Race Horse that Ever Lived


Grandson of Peter McCue, Joe Hancock built his early reputation on the race track, but his real fame was to come as a sire on a Texas ranch. He was bought for his speed by one of Texas' most astute horsemen, Tom Burnette, and it was on Tom's ranches that he was to spend his last days, siring some of the most famous Quarter Horses it has been Texas's privilege to produce.

Joe Hancock could run and he transmitted his speed quite consistently to his offspring. His offspring were in strong demand as rope horses because of their strength, speed and action.

No horse has produced more top-caliber ranch and rodeo horses than Joe Hancock. It is small wonder the real cowmen still rever his name and use his blood.

His progeny included:

  • 15 Foal Crops
  • 155 Foals Registered
  • 2 Performance Point Earners
  • 23 Performance Points Earned
  • 6 Race Registers of Merit
  • 7 Race Starters
