Diablo - Black & white pinto mare ridden by Duncan Renaldo when he played the Cisco Kid, a Mexican "Robin Hood of the Old West" on the western adventure THE CISCO KID/SYN/1950-56.

In the original 1907 story "The Caballero's Way," written by O. Henry (the inspiration for a series) Cisco's horse was an unnamed speckled roan.

"He had escaped capture because he could shoot five-sixths of a second sooner than any sheriff or ranger in the service, and because he rode a speckled roan horse that knew every cowpath in the mesquite and pear thickets from San Antonio to Matamoras."

In the subsequent movies (starring Warner Baxter, Cesar Romero, Gilbert Roland, Duncan Renaldo, and Jimmy Smits as the Cisco Kid)  the horse was called Diablo.
