Fun, Sun, & Secrets at Billie Lane King Cotton Charity

by Kasi Hensley

EDISON, Ga. - The 42nd annual Billie Lane King Cotton Charity Horse Show lived up to its name as "The Finest One-Night Show In Georgia" once again on Saturday, May 9. The hot and sunny day began with a parade of floats and the local high school playing as they marched down the main street of Edison. "This is the biggest day of the year for this town," remarked Mayor Reeves Lane. It is evident the GWHEA and the Edison Lions Club strive to have a wonderful horse show and cater to the spectators, exhibitors and trainers alike. After a long day of horse showing, they offered a free home cooked breakfast complete with scrambled eggs, sausage and biscuits.

Jennifer Bingham made the long trip from Shelbyville, Tenn., to mark the cards for the event and kept the entries flowing smoothly. There were well over 200 entries who made the gate call by the close of the evening and two dominating forces to be reckoned with. Carl Edwards and Sons Stables had 11 victories, which included multi-World Champion Victoria's Secret and Gary Edwards winning their second stake two weeks in a row. Bill Cantrell also left his mark by taking six blues back to Phenix City, Ala., three of which were won by Haley Lane. Steve Beam Stables and LaRue McWaters also won their fair share to receive dual wins.
