Uno degli American Quarter Horse più famosi al mondo nella disciplina del cutting fu Mr San Peppy, uno stallone sauro nato nel 1968 dall’incrocio dello stallone Leo San con la fattrice Peppy Belle (by Pep Up). Allevato da Gordon B. Howell di Dallas, Texas, fu portato in addestramento da Bubba Cascio, un famoso trainer di racing del Texas, siccome Gordon B. Howell amava sia le gare da racing che da cutting. Bubba Cascio però non avendo tempo da dedicare al puledro lo scartò relegandolo a Buster Welch trainer formatosi al Proctor Ranch, passato di stanza al 6666 Ranch, al Long X Ranch e al Pitchfork Ranch. L’addestramento inizia all’età di 3 anni, circa nove mesi prima del Futurity di cutting del 1971. Contemporaneamente il King Ranch (Kingsville, Texas, il ranch che ha allevato Wimpy P1, il il numero uno nel registro AQHA) è alla ricerca di un Top sire da introdurre nel suo programma allevatoriale.
