Bill Bobo and Rowdy Rev followed up their win  at Murfreesboro, Tennessee with another strong performance to capture the honors at the Bethesda, Tennessee Horse Show last night.   Rev is owned by Bill Harlin, Franklin, Tennessee and is in his first year of aged competition.

     This is his second straight blue ribbon and moves his career record to 7 blues, 1 reserve, 5 thirds, a fourth and a sixth.  There is no question this horse is maturing and developing nicely and will be in the hunt for the World Grand Championship at the Celebration this year.  Bill Bobo is a proven hoseman and Bill Harlin of Harlinsdale Farm fame always has top quality horses in the ring.

     With four contenders making statements at this week's July 4th series of shows, the battle for the 2006 World Grand Championship has begun in earnest.
