No Two D For Me, an own daughter of the great Bully Bullion, was lifted into heaven on April 12, 2021, after complications giving birth to a beautiful colt.  She was 21 years old. 

Bred in Trenton, Tennessee, by Robert Kinton and Joe Porter, she was out of the Jungle Savage (TB) mare Sweet An Savage. She was started in racing by the Watson family in Inola, Oklahoma, and she had a brief race career with only three starts and earnings of $223.

She was purchased by LaVerne Fein of West Palm Beach, Florida, in December 2003 as a barrel racing prospect and the rest was a fairy tale.  

“Oakie,” as she was affectionally called, began her barrel racing career in early 2005 and won the first futurity she was entered in, The Good Times Futurity in Mississippi.  She placed in many futurities including the Gold Cup in Oklahoma City.  She quickly at an early age started a pro-rodeo career with placings at the WPRA World Finals in 2007.  Oakie had an amazing career, winning more than eight saddles and numerous other awards, too many to list.  Highlights in her pro-rodeo career was winning the Hamilton, Georgia, PRCA and qualifying for the Southeast Circuit finals for the WPRA.  During the finals she placed second in the second round of competition and just missed qualifying for the RAM Finals due to a tipped can in round three. She has official career earnings from Equistat of $10,407, although she won much more in all types of competition.  

No Two D For Me was retired from barrel racing and bred to some of the top stallions in the industry.  She produced babies by stallions Spit Curl Jess, Traffic Guy, The Kandyman, and Firewater Ta Fame.  She produced four beautiful buckskins out of six foals. 

No Two D For Me spent her retirement in Oklahoma at the Racing L Ranch in Prague, Oklahoma.  She is buried at the ranch, watching over her babies from her favorite tree.  

No Two D For Me spent the majority of her life with her owner, LaVerne P. Fein.  "I was blessed with the most amazing partner anyone could ask for.  She took me places I only dreamed of going.  She gave me everything she had until the very last day. I will forever grieve her absence in my daily life. Oakie left me amazing babies that will be raised in her honor. They are all magnificent and will be champions like her.

“No Two For Me was the foundation of the Racing L Ranch.  May she watch over us.”
