    Leisure's Memory, bay, foaled 1967 by Maxinkuckee

    Off spring 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.

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
