Equine Obituary - Crystal Cream



Crystal Cream, Dr. Jack Bailey's original Tennessee Walking Horse broodmare, passed away peacefully of natural causes Monday, March 4, 2013, at the family farm in Topeka, Kansas. She was 32 years old. It was a great blessing that Dr. Bailey was able to be with her in her final hours. She was bred by Sid Maddux of Cookeville, Tenn., and owned at birth by Burl Kail of Alamo, Tenn. Other owners during her life included Gordon Terry, Curtis Smotherman, June Mooneyham, Roger and Priscilla Murphy, and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Brandon. 
 
Crystal Cream was out of the Mack K Handshaker daughter Handshaker's Red Lady. She was a ribbon winner at The Celebration in the Mare & Foal class as a broodmare. She produced 11 registered foals during her lifetime, including such notables as Model World Champion Generator's Golden Boy, Model Reserve World Champion Palomino President, and the flat-shod show horse Las Vegas Gold who was owned and shown by Zsa Zsa Gabor. Her daughter Applejuice is the dam of Pushover's Armed Annie, who produced El Bandolero currently being campaigned in three-year-old gelding classes by Larry and Gary Edwards.
