Thursday, January 12, 2017
World Champion Ample Cash passed away on December 19, 2016. Spencer and Carrie Benedict of Glasgow, Ky., owned the 23-year-old stallion.
Sired by Coin’s Hard Cash and out of an Ebony Masterpiece mare, Ample Cash was foaled on October 7, 1993. Under the direction of Allan Callaway Stables, the beautiful stallion earned the 1997 Three-Year-Old, Div. A World Championship, unanimously. LeBlanc Enterprises, LLC enjoyed the talent in his early years.
Remaining in training at Allan Callaway Stables, Dr. Ray Caughman and Nancy Cain purchased Ample Cash in 2002, to be campaigned in the amateur division. Karen Callaway directed him to two reserve world championship titles in the Walking Horse Trainers’ Auxiliary class at the 2002 and 2004 Celebration.
Throughout his show ring career, Ample Cash was shown numerous times, winning at many of the industry’s top shows such as: Mississippi Charity, Southern Championship, Marshall County Horseman’s Association and National Trainers’ Show with Dr. Ray Caughman, Karen Callaway and Christy Cain sharing saddle time.
He caught the eye of Spencer and Carrie in 2007, where he would spend the rest of his life at Spencer Benedict Stables. Ample Cash was retired from his show ring career in 2008 and became a successful breeding stallion. In his short breeding career he sired 2x Racking Horse World Grand Champion High Sword and Reserve World Champion Mr. Onyx, as well as other successful performers including: Amped, Amplified, Nocturnal, Enjoy The Ride, Ample Cash Down and Baby Loves Cash.
