Magic Oak Stables Opens

Craig and Kaye Baggerly announce the opening of Magic Oak Stables in Shelbyville, Tenn. Located at Spiller Hill Farm on Highway 231 N, the stable boasts a modern facility with 33 stalls, ample room for indoor riding and a large outdoor riding ring. This training facility has a limited number of spaces still available for colts, pleasure and performance horses.

Baggerly, a native of North Carolina has been associated with noted trainers Allan Callaway, Dick Peebles and Eddie Tuck. He owned and operated a barn in Burlington, North Carolina before relocating back to Middle Tennessee. In North Carolina horses under his direction were the winners of numerous High Point Awards, and winners of many blue ribbons at shows throughout North Carolina and Virginia. Some of the better-known horses he has been associated with are Metro Grand, The Midnight Jazz, Dark Spirit’s Vol, Command With Class, Trip Of A Lifetime, Extra Extra, Delight Of Cotton and Skywatch Affair.

Assisting Baggerly is Joel Fernanedez. Fernandez is well known for his expertise with colts. He has started such notable horses as Sweetie Sky,, Beam’s Clown and Texas Dinero, and has worked for trainers Chad Williams, Billy Gray and Norris Blackburn.

Craig, Kaye and Joel will be hosting an Open House at the barn on November 6 and invite everyone to stop by for a tour of the facility and a delicious buffet. Of course, the welcome mat is always out and the Magic Oak staff is always happy to have visitors at any time. You may reach Magic Oak at 931-205-1590.
