Red Eagle's Peacock was National Champion at the 1956 show. He sired Peacock's Miraklman F-2190, who was thought to be.."The Best of the Lot," by noted breeder Claude Thompson.

Foaled in 1953, Red Eagle's Peacock, sired by Red Eagle and out of Easter, both foundation Appaloosas, was one of the first stallions to achieve the honor of medallion sire. The blanketed dark bay was given the honor in 1974.

Red Eagle's Peacock followed in the show ring tradition of his sire, himself a two-time national halter champion, by earning a 1956 national halter title. The stallion's conformation was deemed so impressive that his image was frequently used as an ideal example of the Appaloosa horse.

Red Eagle's Peacock died of cancer in 1977.
