Quo Vadis was an outstanding Quarter Horse show mare as well as being an outstanding broodmare in the early days of the American Quarter Horse Association (or AQHA).


She was foaled 1952 and bred by Ross Roberts of San Jon, New Mexico.Swan "Legends 3" p 136] She was a black mare, owned at the time of registration by Marianne Randals of Snyder, Texas.AQHA "Official Stud Book and Registry Combined 6-10" p. 642] Both her sire and her dam's sire were products of the King Ranch linebreeding program, so Quo Vadis was descended from Old Sorrel twice. She also traced five times to Peter McCue as well as once to Traveler. [http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/quo+vadis3 Quo Vadis Pedigree at All Breed Pedigree] retrieved on June 26, 2007]

In her show career, she earned an AQHA Championship as well as a Performance Register of Merit.Wagoner "Quarter Horse Reference 1974 Edition" p. 568] She earned a total of forty open halter points with the AQHA, and twenty-nine open performance points.

After her show career, she retired to become a broodmare. She had twelve foals in total. Eleven of them earned AQHA points in halter. Four of them became AQHA Champions - Mr. Perfection, Poco Becky, Bonita Dondi, and Kaliman. Three foals earned a Superior Halter Horse award - Madonna Dell, Mr. Perfection, and Kaliman. She also foaled Majestic Dell, a stallion who earned forty-nine halter points, just one shy of his Superior Halter Horse.
