Old records show Peter McCue as weighing 1430 lb., and 16 hands quite large for a QH, yet given his height and weight he was one of the fastest horses in his time. Raced in Mid-America around the turn of the century he was almost unbeatable until an accident as a 3 year old cut his racing career short. He was retired to stud.

He sired several famous sons:

  • Harmon Baker
  • Hickory Bill, who would sire Old Sorrell, one of the founding studs to the King Ranch.
  • John Wilkins, who would sire Joe Hancock
