Tiny Watch ... for superior performance, was elected Champion Quarter Running Stallion of 1965 and Co-Champion Quarter Running Stallion and Aged Stallion of 1966. .

An excerpt from the book,  
"Speed and the Quarter Horse:  a Payload of Sprinters"  
(1973) by Nelson C. Nye

The Travis Ranch at Norman, Oklahoma, has currently one of the finest bands of broodmares ever assembled under one owner in the annals of Quarter Racing. The ranch, owned by Paul Travis, has twenty matrons devoting their full-time energies to the production of superior track performers; each has been campaigned on the nation’s straightaways and not one has a rating lower than AAA.

The roll call reads like a hall of fame and is worthy of note: Bar Repetition (AAAT AQHA Champion), Decketta (AAAT AQHA Champion), Fantacia (AAAT AQHA Champion), Pal’s Tamak (AAAT AQHA Champion), Three Cookies (AAAT AQHA Champion), Chaundell (AAAT), Mackay’s Image (AAAT), Pitti Rockette (AAAT), Miss Three Wars (AAAT), Dializ (AAAT),  Milady Liz (AAAT), Dimples Too (AAA AQHA Champion), Miss Pana Star (AAA AQHA Champion), Three Deep (AAA AQHA Champion), Triple Me (AAA AQHA Champion), Fantasy (AAA), Gay’s Delight (AAA), Gold Hustler (AAA), Rocket Joleen (AAA), and Wise Duchess (AAA). If the two Travis stallions, Three Chicks and Tiny Watch, can’t get the job done with this kind of harem we’ll give up in disgust.

Tiny Watch, a brown foal of 1961, was bred by the late Frank Vessels ... founder of Los Alamitos ... and was sired by Anchor Watch (TB), a paternal grandson of Calumet Farms’ celebrated Bull Lea;  dam of Tiny Watch is AAA Clabber Tiny by AAA Clabber II (a son of the Iron Horse out of Do Good by St. Louis). Clabber Tiny’s dam was a topline granddaughter of Gallant Fox (TB).

Tiny Watch, for superior performance, was elected Champion Quarter Running Stallion of 1965 and Co-Champion Quarter Running Stallion and Aged Stallion of 1966. In the 1966 Annual Review the editor stated: "Two of Quarter Horse Racing’s most celebrated campaigners, Duplicate Copy and Tiny Watch, have been named….The AQHA Racing Committee took a long look at the 1966 records of both horses and decided that the two should share these honors."

Duplicate Copy started fourteen times, never finishing worse than third; he earned $25,312 and forty-eight racing points; he won four features, was second or third in seven and ran Top AAA five times.

Tiny Watch ran six races, took three firsts, two seconds and a fourth, ran twice in Top AAA, earned sixteen points and $17,287, won three features and placed second in another. He carried from 120 to 130 pounds.

In 1963, as a two-year-old, Tiny Watch from eleven starts took four, was five times second and once third, earning $57,371.34. In 1964, from four outings, he took two, including the Clabbertown G stakes, and was twice third, earning $5,376. In 1965 he went to town with seven wins (including the Miss Princess, the Washoe County Fair, the Pomona Quarter Horse Championship, and the Go Man Go), and five seconds from seventeen outings, banking $26,955.36. At five, in 1966, he again took the Clabbertown G stakes, the Hard Twist, and the Josie Bar, and was second in the Autumn Championship at Los Alamitos behind Go Josie Go and ahead of Duplicate Copy.

Said Jim Goodhue: "In the Championship, Go Josie Go took the lead at the top of the stretch and opened up a half length margin at the wire to earn $16,500. Tiny Watch was second, Duplicate Copy third and the remainder of the field consisted of The Ole Man, Cee Bar Deck, Miss Gold Angel, Bar None Doll, Bunny Capri and Joe Sherry- no easy field by any standard."

Tiny Watch and Duplicate Copy matched strides that year on six occasions, Tiny Watch on four of these came out on top. He was trained by Earl K. Holmes.

From four years of racing and thirty-eight starts, Tiny Watch took sixteen wins, twelve seconds, three thirds, and ran twenty-eight times in AAA or TAAA, earning $106,989.70.

A few mint copies (sealed in original boxes) of this book are available. This is the 6th,  and by far the largest of only 6 horse books written by Nelson C. Nye,  Quarter Horse historian and western novelist.  Click here for information and availability.
