Generator’s Champion Reigns Supreme in Mississippi



by Lauren Abernathy

MCCOMB, Miss. - The 2008 edition of the Heart O’ Dixie show was held in McComb, Miss., on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2008. The show attracted a very large local crowd. Joe Fleming traveled from Shelbyville, Tenn., to serve as the judge for the evening. The local Lions Club proudly put on this show each year, and it was decided that this year they would host six Riders’ Cup classes which helped their entry numbers.

The blue ribbon tally was as follows: Pioneer Stables, 11 blues; Jerry Woodlee, three blues and Abernathy Stables two blues, followed by several single blue ribbon winners.

The final class of the night, as usual, was the Walking Horse Stake. Four entries made the gate call. Judge Fleming worked the entries through their gaits and decided upon Generator’s Champion and Josh Watts for owner Brett and Lisa Jones. Reserve was awarded to Edgar Abernathy aboard High Tide At The Ritz.
