Equine Obituary - Mighty Maxx

World Grand Champion Mighty Maxx passed away on October 23, 2017. The 23-year-old stallion was owned and loved by Jo Ann Dowell of Powell, Ohio.

Sired by Pride’s Beam and out of Fashion’s Promenade, Mighty Maxx was foaled on May 31, 1994.
Under the direction of Bill Bobo, the black stallion earned the 1996 Two-Year-Old Stallion, Div. A World Championship. Betty Robins enjoyed the talent in his early years.

As a three and four-year-old, Mighty Maxx was shown in the amateur division across the middle Tennessee show circuit. In 1998, he was crowned the Owner-Amateur Four-Year-Old World Grand Champion and Owner-Amateur Four-Year-Old, Div. B World Champion with Betty Robins in the irons.

In 2000, Mighty Maxx caught the eye of Jo Ann Dowell, who would own him for the rest of his life. He would be campaigned by SueAnn Dowell for the next two years, as he would become a breeding stallion in 2002. Mighty Maxx began his breeding career at Sand Creek Farm and later found his forever home at Fantasy Farms in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, under the care of Beverly Burgess. His legacy will live on through his offspring, including his world champion son, Maxximize.
