Equine Obituary- Elvis Pusher

On June 15, 2015, World Champion and Reserve World Grand Champion Elvis Pusher passed away due to complications with colic at the age of 21. At the time of his death, he was proudly owned and loved by Barrow, Carla and Ashtyn Claire Brown. Elvis Pusher was foaled on March 16, 1994, by Ulta’s Queen Ann. He was sired by The Pusher CG. 

Anyone who had the opportunity to come in contact with the beloved grey roan stallion knew he was something special. The talented stallion entered the ring over 72 times in his career, and captured 17 first place honors and 19 reserves. In 2002 Toby Scarborough claimed top honors in the Amateur Specialty class with a Reserve World Grand Championship title. It would not be until later at the age of 15 that he would win a World Championship in the Classic Horse class with young rider Clay Sanderson. This win came under the direction of Philip Trimble Stables.

Following his lengthy show career Elvis was retired and sent to the breeding barn where he was just starting to make his mark in history with his talented offspring. Elvis was famous for siring such talented young horses such as Memphis Mafia, Memphis Raines and Memphis Blues, just to name a few. He passed on his traits of talent with a gentle loving nature.

Elvis Pusher will be sadly missed by all who were fortunate enough to be a part of his life.
