Leisure's Memory, bay, foaled 1967 by Maxinkuckee
Offpring of Maxinkuckee:
Roundy's Lass's first foal, Roundy's Kid, was a brown filly by Maxinkuckee, a stallion at stud in Western Canada.
Roundy's Kid became a champion 2YO in the west.
Roundy's Lass's second foal, Flying Award, a chestnut gelding also by Maxinkuckee, was an iron horse, winning
or placing in 13 stakes and racing until he was a 10YO, with over 90 starts.
The next Maxinkuckee offspring was Timber Topper, a brown gelding who raced into his 7th year, winning or
placing in 20 stakes. He earned about $90,000, a large amount for western Canada.
Forestry, the next offspring of Roundy's Lass by Maxinkuckee, was "only" stakes placed, racing into his seventh
year, also a gelding.
There were three more Maxinkuckee foals from this mare: Diamond Hostess, a chestnut filly who would only place
at two, Roundy's Ember, a bay filly who was a stakes-placed winner, and, finally, Timber Tramp, a chestnut gelding,
who would only win a maiden. Roundy's Lass's producing energy had run out.

Another mention is - Shipwrecks in Indiana by NICOLE WILTROUT on Apr 19, 2012... Lake Maxinkuckee in Marshall County is
home to approximately 15 wreck sites, mostly small- to medium-sized steam passenger boats. You can visit the lake and imagine
the days when steamboats were a popular attraction in the town of Culver at Culver Park.

additional 2,848, making the 1996 creel survey the highest ever documented at the lake. The survey also indicated

Lake Maxinkuckee, Indiana’s second largest lake, became a resort community beginning in the
1870s and the area continues to be a summer vacation spot today. Fishermen began visiting the area
in the 1860s-1870s. Groups from different cities formed “clubhouses”—groups from Plymouth,
Peru and Indianapolis created these private hotels. The clubhouses gave way to small hotels, boarding houses, and private
residences. The oldest houses around the lake are on the east shore, the west shore was
developed after World War I and the south shore since World War II
