Quote from Western Horseman Book Legends:  "Without a shadow of a doubt, Three Bars has had the greatest impact on the Quarter Horse breed of any horse in history.  Just take a look at Three Bar's record as a sire.  Whereas most great stallions dominate just one phase of the industry, Three Bars forever left his mark in racing, halter, cutting, and other arena performance events.  In racing, just a very few of his superstar offspring included Goldseeker Bars, Mr. Bar None, Rocket Bar, Three Chicks, The Ole Man, Pokey Bar, Josie's Bar, Mr. Bruce, Sugar Bars, Kid Meyers, St. Bar, Lightning Bar, Barred, Bob's Folly, Galobar, Breeze Bar and Little Lena's Bar.  In cutting, Doc Bar revolutionized the industry.  Doc Bar was a grandson of Three Bars, and his record as a sire of cutters may never be equaled.  In reining, roping, and other arena events, a host of Three Bars get and grand get excelled as sires and producers.  Sugar Bars, for example, sired 30 AQHA Champions,  Par Three earned a Superior at halter and then sired the great Zan Parr Bar.
