The Report has recently learned of the passing of World Grand Champion and Three-Time World Champion, Gossip. The 18 year old stallion passed away on Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014. Of his 18 years, he was owned and loved by the Whitehead and Green families for 15 years.  His first World Championship was with the legendary Whitey Whitehead in the irons in the 2001 Retired Trainers’ class. In 2004, daughter Candy Green took the reins in the big oval and claimed the Amateur 15.2 & Under Stallion World Championship. The duo went on to claim the Amateur 15.2 & Under World Grand Championship that same year. His final show ring appearance was in 2011 where he and Candy made a trip down victory lane at the Alabama Jubilee in the Amateur 15.2 & Under Specialty. Gossip had a dominating presence in the ring and will be remembered always.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Green family during this difficult time.
