The Coach to be Campaigned by Callaway



Copyright WHR 2009

The current Four-Year-Old World Grand Champion, The Coach has been moved from Joel Weaver Stables to Allan Callaway Stables to be campaigned by John Allan Callaway.  The Coach is a leading contender for the World Grand Championship in August.

The talented stallion by The Skywatch is owned by Joe Barnes, Neal Holland and Bob Kilgore and was shown by Joel Weaver in 2008 when he claimed both World Championship and World Grand Championship honors.  The Celebration capped off a year in which Weaver claimed six blue ribbons aboard The Coach after Joe Cotten won the blue at the Gallatin Lions Club show in May, making The Coach a perfect seven for seven in 2008.

The Coach won the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association Futurity and Two-Year-Old World Grand Championship in 2006 and followed that up with six blue ribbons in 2007, including the Three-Year-Old World Championship with Joe Cotten.  His career record of 15 first place finishes and one fifth place finish place him at the top of contenders for the 2009 World Grand Championship.

The move from Weaver to Callaway was made after Weaver told the ownership he had accepted another position and would not be training horses full-time in 2009.  “I appreciate the opportunity given to me to show such a great horse by Bob (Kilgore), Neal (Holland) and Joe (Barnes).  We had a great year together and winning the Four-Year-Old World Grand Championship was a highlight of the year,” said Weaver.  He continued, “I wish the Callaway’s good luck as they campaign for the World Grand Championship.”
