Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin were deeply saddened with the loss of Jumbotron on July 25, 2010 due to colic. “Jumbo”, sired by Fantastic Gold and out of a Hytone mare, was bred and raised by Barbara and Thomas Cornelius of Rogersville Ala. Jim and Donna Huffman purchased Jumbotron as a three-year-old and thus, began his show ring career. 

Jumbotron became a member of the Hardin family during the summer of 2009 and was successfully campaigned by Richard Hardin in Three-Year-Old Amateur classes and Open classes by trainer and daughter, Anne Hardin. One of the highlights of their short career together was receiving the Heart of America Three-Year-Old High Point honors earlier this year for their 2009 achievements.
