Gary Edwards Went Strollin’ Thru The Ritz at Oak Mountain Classic



by Maggi Painter

CARROLLTON, Ga. – The Oak Mountain Classic was held April 12, 2008, in Carrollton, Ga., at the VFW Fairgrounds. Jeff Green of Shelbyville, Tenn., was in charge of judging the event.

Carl Edwards and Sons Stables led the blue ribbon tally with seven wins. Strollin’ Thru The Ritz and Gary Edwards claimed the Oak Mountain Classic Grand Championship. The Edwards brothers’ (Larry and Gary) young stock left quite an impression. They claimed the two-year-old and three-year-old divisions, along with the Three-Year-Old Amateur class.

Ken Moore Stables and Colonel Paul Walker each captured four blues a piece. Winky Groover made the trip from Shelbyville, Tenn., to Sheryl Crawford’s hometown for Crawford to claim three blues. Also claiming three blues were Carl Bledsoe and The Horse House and Jean Brannon.
