Equine Obituary – Lined With Poison

Two-time World Champion Lined With Poison, loved and owned by Donald and Lucky Collins, passed away March 4, 2020, with a heart attack. At the time of his death, Lined With Poison was located at Maple Hollow Farm in Jonesborough, Tennessee.

This talented horse, by Lined With Cash and out of a Poison mare, was purchased from Joe Barnes as a three-year-old. He entered the ring for the with Lucky Collins in 2010 and won his first blue at the Lady Azules Soccer Show in Shelbyville, Tennessee. During his years in the show ring he won thirty-seven blues and two World Championships, the 2012 Elite Owner-Amateur Ladies Stallions World Championship and the 2013 Owner-Amateur 70 Years & Over World Championship. Both of these world championships were earned while trained by Charlie Green. Between his three-year-old year and his retirement following the 2018 Celebration, this dynamic team won every major show sometime during their show ring career. At that time, he was retired to Fantasy Farms in Bell Buckle, Tennessee where he spent a year before going to Maple Hollow Farm. 

Lucky Collins said, “Thanks to Beverly for the year at Fantasy Farms. Thanks to Chris Zahnd for his care until his death at Maple Hollow. So many people loved him and will miss him greatly. Thanks to Charlie Green for all the hard work that made him a two-time world champion with me and thanks to Dr. Jim Baum for his expertise and care of Poison throughout the years.”

The Report extends their sympathy to Don and Lucky Collins and those who knew and loved this great horse.
