Kaye Jones once thought about selling the Quarter Horse broodmare Ze Southern Girl and her 2017 Paint gelding Southern Electric. The mare had produced a decent Paint runner named Wired For Sound, but Ze Southern Girl had a few bad habits.
“She is a little bit of a pain,” said Kaye. “She’s a digger; she’ll gets ulcers over her food— she’s a little high maintenance. We almost lost her to colic at one time.”
Fortunately for Kaye and her husband, Dan, no one bought either horse. Instead, Southern Electric developed into an outstanding competitor, winning nine of 12 races last year to earn three Championships, including World Champion Solid Paint-Bred. Neither one is for sale anymore.
The Joneses acquired Ze Southern Girl because they liked her sire, Southern Cartel. They thought the mare would be a good cross for their homebred Paint stallion CRM Livewire. A 2-time World Champion himself, CRM Livewire has become one of the all-time leading Paint sires.
Matt Whitekiller trained CRM Livewire for the Joneses, and he also shepherded Southern Electric through an incredible year.
It began somewhat inauspiciously at Remington Park. After winning his trial for the Oklahoma Paint & Appaloosa Futurity-G1, Southern Electric finished seventh in the final because of another Jones runner.
“Our other horse in that race, Babe Wired, ran into the side of him and just knocked him out of it,” said Kaye.
Southern Electric won his next three races at Remington, including the PSBA Futurity-G1 and his trial for the Speedhorse Graham P&A Futurity-G1. In the Speedhorse finals, he encountered a little more trouble, but still finished third behind winner DTL Chasin Tale.
Southern Electric won both of his races at Fair Meadows—his trial and the finals to the Speedhorse P&A Futurity-G1. He finished his 2-year-old season at Will Rogers Downs, winning the Pot O’ Gold Futurity-G1 and Speedhorse P&A Championship Futurity-G1.
The last race brought him even with DTL Chasin Tale for the Speedhorse Paint & Appaloosa Triple Crown Hi-Point Award. The Joneses are good friends with Dean and Tonya Lester, who bred DTL Chasin Tale and own him in the DTL Teel Partnership.
“It was a great year,” said Kaye. “We have very lively competition. We have such a nice group of people who run Paints. We try to keep it all fun.”
Southern Electric goes wire-to-wire under Andrew Samaniego in the Speedhorse P&A Championship Futurity-G1.
