Bred and raised by TWHBEA Master Breeder Jack Gillespie, World Grand Champion All American Cash was originally named Three Ways Best. Sired by 1987 World Grand Champion Coin’s Hard Cash and out of the great mare Final’s First Lady, All American was recognized early on as a great Tennessee Walking Horse.

He was purchased as a yearling by Waterfall Farms in December of his yearling year as a green colt just started under saddle. He soon became under the ownership of Herb Murrath a short two months later. He was placed in training at Carl Edwards & Sons Stables under the direction of Larry Edwards. Under the Edwards/Murrath banner, All American went on to become the 1996 Reserve World Champion Two-Year-Old Stallion and Reserve World Grand Champion Two-Year-Old. The following year he became the World Champion Three-Year-Old Stallion and Reserve World Grand Champion Three-Year-Old.

As a four-year-old All American became a part of the great coalition of horses owned by Bob Kilgore and Donald Castleman. He had a phenomenal four-year-old year eventually becoming the 1998 World Grand Champion Four-Year-Old with Jackie McConnell aboard. Soon after Floyd and Beverly Sherman chose All American Cash to become Beverly’s amateur mount for a record price. All American Cash is one of a handful of Tennessee Walking Horses to command the purchase price of over one million dollars.

Under the Sherman’s Backward S banner with Billy Young at the helm, All American and Beverly won most major showcases including multiple reserve world championships with Kelly Sherman taking his reins in 2002. His last ride around The Celebration oval ended with a victory pass in the 15.2 & Under Amateur Stake becoming the 2002 Amateur 15.2 & Under World Grand Champion.

All American was then placed with David Williams in the fall of 2002, at then Blackhawk Farms, to stand at stud. In a breeding career that almost spanned 20 years and three breeding facilities all under David Williams’ guidance, All American Cash sired 468 foals to date including world champions such as She Has Status, Keep Your Cash, American Threat, Epic, Popcorn Sutton, He’s Made In The USA, Just Borrowed Cash and I’m A Proud American. Also included are a multitude of reserve world champions. A repurchase by Waterfall Farms and then under the ownership of Five Star Stallions and David Williams, rounded out those that had the privilege of holding All American’s registration papers.

A champion among champions, a million dollar horse and a sire of champions, All American Cash has exceeded every expectation for all that have been associated with him. At 28 years of age, he still has foals left to be born in 2022. We know they will continue his already established legacy.
