Equine Obituary - Doc Ty





Doc Ty, by Coin’s Hard Cash and out of a Delight Of Pride mare, passed away at the age of 15, in Ohio. Doc Ty carried his owners to many blues throughout the years and shared his wonderful nature with many. He was born January 31 in 2000 and passed away on August 24, 2015 under the loving care of owners Dick and Jackie Gray. He spent his last two years with them in Ohio.

Doc Ty started his career with Jimmy McConnell and was shown by both McConnell and Dan Waddell winning blues, as well as a third place tie at the 2003 Celebration. In 2006 he entered the amateur ranks and was shown by Jeff Sanderson. Clay Mills from North Carolina began a highly successful season with the talented and loving black stallion in 2007. At the 2007 Celebration, he was purchased for Lauren Williams to show. She enjoyed many blue ribbon rides in Middle Tennessee. His final show was at the Illinois WHA Fall Charity in Springfield, Illinois with Lauren winning the Amateur Specialty Stake. He was retired from the show ring in 2010 and remained at Scrivner Stables in Murfreesboro until he went to Ohio in 2013.

Doc Ty gave his all in the show ring and was loved by many. Scrivner Stables family, Lauren and Pam Williams, the Gray family and all who knew him enjoyed his loving nature and talent and willingness in and outside the show ring.
