Equine Death-Jubilee’s Image





Three-time Reserve World Champion Jubilee’s Image was humanely laid to rest on Thursday, May 6 following complications of a strangulated hernia at the age of 19.           

Image was bred and raised by the Bob Parks family. The young bay stallion by Pride’s Jubilee Star was started by Wink Grover and made his show ring debut by winning the Two-Year-Old Stallion class at the Trainer’s Show in 1993. Parks also claimed the blue in the amateur division at that same show. As a four-year-old, Image was moved to Ramsey Bullington Stables where he continued to win at major shows throughout the South including Lewisburg, Belfast, Fun Show, Alabama Jubilee and the International.
           
Jubilee’s Image caught the eye of Matt and Lisa McWilliams in 2002 and was re-located to the Southwest Missouri area under the direction of Curt Caldwell. Caldwell and Image continued the pattern of blue ribbons and victory passes in open classes while McWilliams claimed amateur class successes throughout the Midwest circuit including Missouri State Fair, HAWHA Championship, Midwest Trainer and Illinois Classic.
           
Jubilee’s Image was laid to rest at Windfall Stables, the home of Lisa and Matt McWilliams. The dark bay stallion was known for his huge heart and quiet disposition, even during this difficult situation. Jubilee’s Image will be missed by the McWilliams, the Parks family and all who were associated with this great champion.
