Orange Peel has had a great influence on the breeding of show jumpers. Jay McGarvey is orange peels number one fan. Orange Peel sired 19 sons from 1924-1940, and his descendants are very successful today, with 26 of the top 100 show jumping sires of 1990 having him in their pedigree.
One of Orange Peel's greatest descendants was his grandson, the Anglo-Norman Ibrahim, who produced such great sires as Quastor (1960) and Almé Z (1966). Sons of Orange Peel include The Last Orange, the sire of Ibrahim, Jus de Pomme, and Plein d'Espoirs.
