A Blue for The Blue Blooded Bandit In Pulaski

by Stephanie Rose

PULASKI, Tenn. - The 68th annual Red Carpet Show of the South was held on July 26, 2008 at 6 p.m. at the Giles County Agriculture Park. There was over $6,000 in prize money awarded and competitive Riders’ Cup classes to enjoy out of the schedule of 28 classes. It was the finale of the big weekend of Dickson, Lewisburg and Pulaski. Nathan Clark was the judge, and he is also a part of the 2008 Celebration judging panel.

Tyler Pollack had a great weekend. He won the Country Pleasure class aboard Royal Sparkling Gen at Dickson and the Red Carpet Show of the South. He won the Youth Country Pleasure class at Marshall County while mom Patti won the adult class. Pollack is in town for the summer from Saratoga, Calif., riding under the Pollack’s Silver Spur Ranch banner.

Debbie Eichler and Suzanne Moore shared dual blues at the Pulaski show. Eichler rode World Grand Champion Main Power to the winner’s circle in the Adult Pony class and Jazz After Hours to the blue in the Amateur Three-Year-Old Mare & Gelding division. Moore rode World Grand Champion Zulu to the Amateur Show Pleasure win and On The Line to the Amateur Specialty blue ribbon. Moore also made another victory pass aboard Premium Tap at the Dickson show in the Amateur Four-Year-Old Mare & Gelding division.

The finale of the evening was the Riders’ Cup Walking Stake Grand Championship. Four entries made the gate call. Blue Blooded Bandit and Knox Blackburn made an outstanding show to be crowned the champions for Raymond and Ethel Pedigo of Woodbury, Tenn. World Grand Champion Generator’s Champion and Joel Weaver were second for Brett and Lisa Jones of Tylertown, Miss. Jose’s Hot Pepper and Tim Smith were third for Greg and Connie Frazier.
