            LAFAYETTE, Tenn. – The seventh annual Dr. C.C. Chitwood Jr. Memorial Walking Horse Show, sponsored by the Lafayette Lions Club, was held on Saturday, July 21, 2007, at the Macon County Fairgrounds in Lafayette, Tenn.

            Judge Wayne Abee marked the cards for the 28-class event. Sandy Knight was the show announcer and Bobby Bransford was ringmaster. Wayne Nabors handled the duties of keeping everyone entertained with great music.

            Six contenders answered the gate call for the Walking Stake class. When the dust had settled, it was Charmed And Dangerous and Drew Graves who were called to center ring for the blue ribbon presentation. This team was fresh off their Jackson County Stake win the previous weekend. Joe Burton of Morrison, Tenn., is the proud owner of this winning stallion. Pegasus’s Magna Man and Todd Smith of Highland Stables drew the red ribbon for Tracy Mosley of Bowling Green, Ky. Rounding out the top three positions were Special Alert and trainer John Puckett for Jean O’Brien of Bell Buckle, Tenn.
