Jernigan Peake

Foaled in 1954, Jernigan Peake was by the legendary sire, Driftwood, and out of Spiderette, by King. He was purchased by Johnny Brazil as a 2-year-old from Channing and Katy Peake. In 2009, he joins his owner as a member of the NRCHA Hall of Fame.

Under the acclaimed reinsmans guidance, Jernigan Peake went on to be one of the most celebrated bridle horses of his time, beginning with a big win in 1957 at the Cow Palace, and continuing on for seven years.

While not a current household name, reined cow horse history buffs remember that in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the big horse claimed major titles from nearly every prestigious stock horse event he entered.
