San Jo Lena, a 1982 stallion sired by Peppy San out of Jo Olena by Doc Olena, was put down yesterday, May 22, according to Sally Dedmon Lowry, the daughter of Bert Dedmon, who owned the stallion prior to his death. The AQHA World Champion in Cutting and NCHA Super Stakes Classic Champion, was born in 1982 at Bobby Shelton’s Ranch, went on to sire offspring which won millions of dollars in cutting, reining, reined cowhorse, team penning and barrel racing. The first time the U.S. Equestrian team competed in reining, his son, San Jo Freckles, won the gold medal ridden by Shawn Flarida.

In a press release from Sally, she said San Jo Lena was shown by Pat Patterson, a legend in the cutting industry and no one who witnessed it will forget Pat, at 75 years of age, scoring a 230 on San Jo Lena in Abilene, Texas. She continued that her family is also indebted to Brett Davis, who rode San Jo Lena to his 1991 AQHA World Championship in Senior Cutting the same year he rode her father’s young stallion, Playboys Remedy, to the championship in the Junior Cutting.

“Our deepest gratitude to these trainers, their families, our many friends and most of all – this wonderful horse, San Jo Lena. It’s been a great ride!”
