Charger's Gold Card - Obituary



March 25, 2001- October 25, 2012

 

Chargers Gold Card passed away of natural causes on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012. The striking gelding truly resembled his sire, Eb’s Black Charger. He was owned in his later years by Shane Auman and Skylar MacLeod. Together this mother-daughter team captured many titles from 2010-2012 under the direction of Don Lominac Stables. Skylar said, “ I will miss Gold Card because he was my first horse to show at the Celebration. We received many great ties and ribbons. He was a pure joy to ride. I could just point him in the direction and he showed himself so willingly!”

Known for his color, Gold Card had turned almost snow white with a black mane and tail, at 16.2 hands. He was started by Danny Hughes and had many wins as a two and three-year-old with Larry George in the irons. He then caught the eye of Athy Robinson who purchased him to show out of Baucom Stables. Gold Card brought home blues from The Kentucky Celebration, South Carolina Ladies Auxiliary Show, East Tennessee Classic and South Carolina State Championships just to name a few.

Shane and Skylar will always have a place in their hearts for this horse.
