"Rey Jay proved his value as a show horse and this allowed him to enter the stud and prove himself as a sire. This has lead to a demand for the blood of Rey Jay in the modern cutting horse. Rey Jay has supplied that blood as the sire of outstanding foals, especially through his daughters. His daughters have produced such horses as Colonel Freckles, Freckles Playboy, Freckles Hustler, Jay Freckles, Lenas Success, Si Olena, Tamulena, Dox Lena Rey, Dox Abilena, Dox Alex and Storks Gin.
Buster Welch describes the horse this way, "Rey Jay got real low to the ground. He had a lot of style for a horse in his day. I think some of it was that he had a lot of cow and that bad eye. He tried so hard to keep a cow under control, where he could see her. That gave him a little extra animation. There's not a whole lot of horses that would look at a cow as hard as he would, concentrate as hard as he did" By examining Rey Jay's pedigree one can readily see where to potential for his ability and desire came from. Rey Jay traces four times to Old Sorrel through his sire, Rey Del Rancho and his dam, Calandria K. Old Sorrel was the foundation sire of the King Ranch Quarter Horses.
Rey Jay sired only 126 registered foals. He sired only 43 performers with twelve ROM and one AQHA Champion. Several sons of Rey Jay have followed in the sires' footsteps as show horses. Valentine Rey is a 1973 stallion that has 16 AQHA cutting points and he was a finalist in the 1977 AQHA World Show Junior Cutting
