Equine Obituary - Jose's Centerfold




On Thursday, March 15, Jose’s Centerfold was humanely laid to rest following complications from colic.

Sired by Jose’ Jose’ and out of Tarheel’s Supreme Colors, Jose’s Centerfold was foaled on Oct. 5, 2005 to Bob Rollins. Jose’s Centerfold caught the eye of Bill Williams at a young age and began her show career under the direction of trainer, Shea Woods.

In 2012, Williams made the move to Wright Stables. Under the Wright Stables banner, she would claim her first World Championship and World Grand Championship title in the Novice division.

Jose’s Centerfold would go on to carry Bill Williams, Casey Wright and Michael Wright to World Championship titles for a total of seven world championships, two world grand championships and three reserve world championships. She was shown a total of 98 times in her life and earned top honors in 57 of those classes.

In 2017, young Emma Wright made her show ring debut on the talented mare to claim top honors at the Money Tree Fall Classic. This highly competitive team went on to bring fans to their feet at the Tunica Fall Classic winning the Andy Adkins Memorial Youth Championship. Little did we all know this would be her last time in the show ring. 

Big plans had already been made for Bill Williams and Emma Wright to share the mare in the 2018 show season. Jose’s Centerfold will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
