Gen’s My Magic Marker Claimed Booneville



by Debbie Graham

BOONEVILLE, Miss. - The 35th annual Mississippi State Racking Horse Championship and Walking Horse Show was held on May 31, 2008, in Booneville, Miss. The event was held at the Prentiss County Agri-Center, a beautiful and spacious indoor facility. The Magnolia Racking Horse Association was the sponsor. Proceeds from the show benefited the Blue Mountain Children’s Home. The Blue Mountain Children’s Home is a locally established organization founded in 1965 with a facility committed to caring for children with various needs and providing a favorable environment for their development.

Upon arrival at the show grounds, it was evident that the Magnolia Racking Horse Association, along with a dedicated show committee, had everything in place for a successful event for racking and walking horse enthusiasts. There were 36 classes on the agenda and 13 of these were for walking horse entries. The remaining classes were for racking and spotted contenders. The starting time was 6 p.m. and shortly before the show began, five USDA officials arrived to inspect entries along with the DQP, resulting in a low entry tally.

Brian Reece judged the walking horses and Keith Ailshie judged the racking entries. In the Walking Stake class, Gen’s My Magic Marker and Shane Phillips received the tricolor for owner Tommy Phillips.
