Generator’s Double Coin and Allen Abee Win in the Mud Bowl

by Janet Bullis

MORGANTON, N.C. - The North Carolina Foothills Jubilee was held at the Burke County Fair Grounds in Morganton, N.C., on June 28. Prior to the scheduled show time of 5 p.m., a severe storm struck with high winds, hail and rain. By 5 p.m., the storm had cleared away and the show officials were able to put everything back together to begin the show at 6. However, the track was so muddy the announcement was made for optional tail braces and show attire for the riders.

The 2008 Burke County Walking and Racking Club dedicated their show to the Burke County Hospice. In the opening ceremonies, a check for $1,000 was presented to the Burke County Hospice and Pallative Care.

Judge Blake Sims of Shelbyville, Tenn., judged the 34-class show with 159 entries. Floral horseshoes were given in the stake classes along with challenge trophies. Madeline Griggs was able to relocate from the center ring to still provide lively music for the classes. Announcer Scott Frye did his usual good job of keeping the show going at a timely pace and Debbie Bush was the official photographer capturing all the moments for exhibitors and owners.

The Walking Open Stake classes had five entries. Generator’s Double Coin and Allen Abee rode out with all the first place honors that included the Cleveland and Murtis Abee Challenge Memorial trophy. Kevin Parton, of Washington, D.C., is the proud owner. The reserve honors went to the powerful team of Derek Bonner and Pusher’s Powerhouse. Dr. Irving Williams is the owner of this Stanly County Stake champion.
