Fun Show Class Retied



Copyright WHR 2007

By Christy Howard Parsons

The Celebration, Inc., has released the revised official results after retying the 15.2 and Under Walking Stallions class at the Spring Fun Show. The Dance Hall Doctor is now the official Spring Fun Show 15.2 and Under champion. The Dance Hall Doctor is owned by Andrew Waites and was presented by trainer Joel Weaver. Will E Walk and Knox Blackburn are the reserve champions.

The class was retied after the National Horse Show Commission notified Charlie Green that Jazz King, an entry owned by Keith Breedlove, broke NHSC rules at the Spring Fun Show by showing in an under 15.2 class and an over 15.2 class in the same night.

Whitney Breedlove first showed Jazz King in class 19 in the owner/amateur 15.2 and over class, but she was excused after entering the ring by the judges. All three judges turned in a card asking that the horse be excused.

Trainer Charlie Green returned with Jazz King later the same night in class 25 in the 15.2 and under walking stallions class. Jazz King and Green won the 15.2 and under class, but due to the rule violation, the class had to be retied.

According to the Official NHSC Rule Book, at a given show, a horse that measures 15.2 and under may show in either 15.2 and under or over 15.2 classes, but is not permitted to show in both.
