Streakin Victory, a multiple stakes winning son of the Easy Six stallion Streakin Six, died earlier this week. He was 33.

Bred in Oklahoma by Clarence Scharbauer Jr., Streakin Victory raced from 1990-2000. He won 26 of 121 starts, and his eight stakes victories included the 1997 AQHA Distance Challenge Championship (G1) at Los Alamitos. His earnings at the time of his retirement from racing totaled $180,394.

Streakin Victory made 30 of his starts for owner and trainer Scott Willoughby.

“Streakin Victory brought me to California,” said Willoughby, who was the leading Quarter Horse trainer at Los Alamitos last year. “He’s the reason that I came out to Los Alamitos. He was my first winner at Los Alamitos, my first stakes winner at Los Alamitos and my first Grade 1 winner. He was a pretty amazing horse.” 

Streakin Victory retired from racing at the age of 12. He then excelled for Willoughby on the California trails and in the roping arenas.

“Danny Cardoza and Scoop Vessels took him on the Rancho Vistadores ride, and they won the 550-yard race there three years in a row with him,” Willoughby said. “Danny stayed roping on him, and I roped with him as well. He was such an intelligent horse."

During his later years, Streakin Victory lived at Ed Allred's Rolling A Ranch in Atascadero, California.

“I saw him two weeks ago,” Willoughby said. “I took some chocolate donuts and we hung out and enjoyed some sweets together. He will always be my special horse.”
