Life

Rocket Bar was a registered Thoroughbred son of Three Bars that foaled in Arizona in 1951. He raced until 1958, when he was sold and started a career in the breeding shed.

On the Quarter Horse tracks, Rocket Bar started once and came in third. He reached an AA speed rating in that one start, earning him a Race Register of Merit with the American Quarter Horse Association (or AQHA). On the Thoroughbred tracks, he started thirty-five times in six years. From those starts, he won sixteen times, came in second six times and was third four times. He earned a total of $22,904.00 and won the 1956 and 1957 Phoenix Gold Cup Handicap.

During Rocket Bar's breeding career he sired three AQHA Supreme Champions – Fire Rocket, He Rocket, and Sugar Rocket – along with other notable horses including Rocket Wrangler, Osage Rocket, Mr Tinky Bar, and Top Rockette. Rocket Bar died on October 23, 1970 after colic surgery.

Rocket Bar was inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame.

Famous quotes containing the word life:

    Everybody’s a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We’re all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos.
    David Cronenberg (b. 1943)

    We swim, day by day, on a river of delusions, and are effectually amused with houses and towns in the air, of which the men about us are dupes. But life is a sincerity.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Women are taught that their main goal in life is to serve others—first men, and later, children. This prescription leads to enormous problems, for it is supposed to be carried out as if women did not have needs of their own, as if one could serve others without simultaneously attending to one’s own interests and desires. Carried to its “perfection,” it produces the martyr syndrome or the smothering wife and mother.
    Jean Baker Miller (20th century)
