McGaughey cashes in with Jet Line Cash

BROKEN BOW, NE – It is not often a special horse comes along that has a gentle temperament, combined with speed and a strong desire to succeed. When Marlene McGaughey first laid eyes on Jet Line Cash in 1990, she saw a potential there that many others may have missed.

“The stud was just extremely well-made and had been on the track and had some race earnings,” she said. “He had a marvelous disposition and was just so kind an sweet.”

At the time, McGaughey had been spending time on the road competing in barrel racing. “I had a really good barrel horse that was a mare,” she said. “I wanted to breed her, so I was looking for a good stallion.”

McGaughey had run across Jet Line Cash quite by accident. Some friends had traveled to New Mexico and purchased the stallion only to get him home and find they couldn’t keep him with their other animals.

“I bought half interest in him and brought him to the ranch,” McGaughey said. “Six months later, I bought the other half.”

The purchase turned into a very wise investment for McGaughey, who has produced several big winners from the stallion.

“His offspring have been so successful, that I didn’t even have to do much advertising,” she explained. “It was just word of mouth. I started getting some really good colts and it just took off from there.” Jet Line Cash offspring have had arena earnings to date of over $120,000.

Although some of the offspring were sold to other barrel racing contenders, McGaughey has kept some of the colts for herself and her daughter, Josie. “The colts just turned out so well,” McGaughey said. “The first colt we kept, the kids showed in 4-H in halter classes and they won a trophy almost every year.”

Prospects from Jet Line Cash have gone on to be serious contenders in barrel racing, team roping, calf roping, steer wrestling and in halter and performance classes. They also have made great ranch horses.

“When I purchased him, my goal was simple – I wanted to produce good horses with speed and sense,” she says. “I wanted horses with a good disposition that were willing and athletic.”

McGaughey said the colts she keeps are sent away to be started and then returned to her for barrel racing training.

“Some of the horses I train myself and some I send out for futurity training,” she explained. The colts are eligible for three breeders futurities – the Bold Heart, the Five-State, and the Cornhusker breeder’s futurities.

Although McGaughey has five children who all showed horses in 4-H, only one daughter, Josie, continued competing with horses in high school, college and pro rodeo. In fact, Josie has burned up the competition with her Jet Line Cash offspring. One of her barrel racing horses, Bid Cash N Diamonds, won all three go rounds at the Badlands Circuit Finals in 2006 and competed in the Dodge National Circuit Finals in Pocatello, ID in 2007. In 2007, he also won the regional 1-D Better Barrel Races championship and was the Barrel Bash 1-D Champion. In 2008, he was the Cornhusker derby/maturity champion and the Bold Heart derby/maturity champion. He qualified for the AQHA World Show and he has earned his ROM (Register of Merit).

Another horse, Regency Cash, was off to a great start in 2007 as a Bold Heart Derby Money Earner.

Other barrel racers have also been successful with Jet Line Cash offspring, McGaughey said. Beth Baxter has won at least three saddles and over $25,000 in earnings with the Jet Line Cash offspring, Winnawaddacash. Rhonda Wilson of Texas, Diane Axmann of Nebraska and Brandi Schneider of Kansas among others also do well on Jet Line Cash offspring they use to compete in 4-D and derby/maturity barrel racing events.

McGaughey also regularly runs her horse, Cash Bid on Diamonds, with futurity and derby/maturity earnings. McGaughey, who grew up on a ranch, has competed in barrel racing all her adult life. This year alone, she has competed in nearly 20 barrel races that are WPRA-approved or barrel bashes.

In calf roping, team roping and bull dogging, the Jet Line Cash offspring have also hit the pay window over and over again. The owners of these horses have had much success in the rodeo arena.

No matter who shows the horses, McGaughey said she still enjoys seeing the offspring in the winner’s circle. She also plans to breed more Jet Line offspring with a new stallion she is very proud of.

“I have acquired a new Thoroughbred stallion and I am planning to breed some of my Jet Line Cash mares to him,” she said.

McGaughey said Jet Line Cash is still alive and well on the family ranch near Broken Bow. “I don’t take in very many outside mares anymore, but I do take some,” she said.

McGaughey continues to train horses for herself and is excited about training some horses for her grandchildren, who will soon be in 4-H.

“My daughter barrel races and I barrel race, so it is pretty much the direction we have gone,” says McGaughey. “Josie is a representative for Montana Silversmith now, and she travels a lot, so she doesn’t have much time to barrel race anymore.”

McGaughey’s other four children, although not competing, are still involved with the horses. Her son, Dr. Will Jordan, is a veterinarian and equine surgeon. Her daughter, Jenny Jordan is a dental hygienist; her son Dr. Clint Jordan is a dentist; and John Jordan is a pharmaceutical representative. McGaughey’s husband, Ken, ranches and is a veterinarian in the Broken Bow area.
