Doc O'Lena - He is one of only two horses in the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame with both parents who are also inductees. Doc O'Lena was National Cutting Horse Association Futurity Champion. In all, Doc O'Lena earned $21,991.93 in NCHA earnings, along with an NCHA Certificate of Ability. His son Smart Little Lena was the first winner of the NCHA Triple Crown and in 1978 Doc O'Lena himself was syndicated for $2.1 million, at that time a record for the cutting horse industry.
