She has one foal, a very nice 2014 filly by Cee Jess. Power Button had no trouble foaling and is an excellent mother. She was left open for 2015 as her owner sold her stud.


This outstanding mare with wonderful disposition has some powerful genetics and all kinds of soundness to add to your broodmare band. She will be a good cross with your Quarter Horse stallion -- or breed her to a Thoroughbred. She will produce and her offspring will add to your program.
