Current Reserve World Champion Amateur Three-Year-Old Stallion First Parole was humanely laid to rest on Monday, January 8, 2008. First Parole was sired by 2002 World Grand Champion Out On Parole and out of dam Jez's First Lady. This talented chestnut stallion was owned and loved by Rhonda Warren of Kernersville, NC and trained by Baucom Stables of Monroe, NC.

First Parole broke his canon bone during a warm up to a workout at the Stables last week. He was quickly taken to Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital Thursday, Jan. 3, 2008. When the break was found to be irreparable, the decision was made to put First Parole  down Monday at the Clinic.

First Parole’s last show was at the North Carolina Championship where he won both the Amateur Three-Year-Old Stallion class with Warren and the Three-Year-Old Stallion class with Baucom.  Other wins in 2007 included the National Trainers' Show and Spring Fun Show. Warren also won the Two-Year-Old Amateur class at the 2006 North Carolina Championship in their debut performance. This great colt was loved by many who saw him and recognized his talent.
