Easy Six inherited speed from both sides of his pedigree. On the top, he was an own son of the great Easy Jet that had a speed index of 100. On the bottom, he was out of the race mare Peggy Toro, that also had a speed index of 100. Easy Six himself was the winner of just under $200,000 and earned a speed index of 97. He sired only 180 foals from three (3) crops, yet these offspring earned over $2.6 million on the track. He was obviously on his way to being a successful producer of fast horses.
Easy Six will always be one of those horses we will have to wonder about. What if … what if he had lived to produce the large number of offspring that his great sire Easy Jet produced? But that was not to be. His life was cut short by colic in 1978 at 6 years of age.
