Equine Obituary - Page Maker





Page Maker was humanely laid to rest March 7th at the Shamrock Farms in Shelbyville due to complications from colic. Page Maker was sired by the late WGC Pride’s Dark Sprit and out of A Fashion Page. His dam traced back to some of the greatest mares of our breed including: Mystery’s Niece, Mysterious, and Midnight Mystery. He was foaled on April the 4th 1988 at the farm of Ms. June Hawkins. This would be the beginning of a long relationship between Page and Ms. Hawkins. Over the next ten years Page would take her and his trainer Wayne Dean to countless blue ribbons all over middle Tennessee. Page took home top honors at the Columbia Spring Jubilee, Walking for the Children, Crossroads of Dixie, MT. Pleasant, Winchester, Summertown, Minor Hill, Spring Hill, and the list goes on and on. The show ring ,however, would not be the only place Page would find success. He had a very short but extremely successful breeding career. Although he only sired 55 colts over 20 of them made the show ring. Page was the sire of top show horses like Spring’s Starmaker, Paged at Noon, Pagemaker’s Copyrite, First Page of Kenworthy and many more. Page will be dearly missed by all that new him.
