HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - On Saturday, April 5, 2008, the Alabama Ladies Auxiliary held its eighth annual horse show at the A&M Agribition Center. This year the memorial show was in honor of Martha Ferguson. All proceeds went to the Relay For Life Cancer Society.

The show started about an hour late with Brent Grider judging the 33 classes that had over 200 entries. The much anticipated stake class was called with World Grand Champion Jose’s Intimidator and Jamie Bradshaw taking home the blue for Randall Ferguson. “It’s great to have Intimidator back in the show ring and I was pleased with our performance but to win our first stake class of the season at a show honoring Martha [Ferguson] made it that much more special,” said Bradshaw.

Many barns won multiple blues including Latham Sables, Philip Trimble Stables, Clark Farms, Rising Star Ranch, Bruce Hankins Stables and Wolf Creek Farms. Complete results follow and can be viewed by clicking here
