Joe Reed II was registered number 985 in the AQHA's stud book. He was registered as a chestnut stallion that foaled in 1936. His breeder was recorded as J. W. House of Cameron, Texas, and his owner when he was registered was Bert H. Wood of Tucson, Arizona. He was the son of Joe Reed P-3 and Nellene, a daughter of Fleeting Time (TB). He was over half Thoroughbred by breeding, as both his sire and his dam were by Thoroughbreds. On his dam's side he traced twice to Traveler. His paternal granddam, Della Moore, was a Louisiana bred mare.
In 1942 Joe Reed beat the famous Clabber to be proclaimed Champion Quarter Running Stallion. He raced three times that meet, and won all three races. He had a foot injury and the last race he bled from the foot the whole race, but managed to win the race anyway. After his racing career was cut short by that injury, Joe went on to sire such outstanding horses as Leo P-1335, Little Sister W, Joak, Joe Queen, and Tonta Lad.
