Rae Martin invited everyone out to his farm for a great lunch of barbecue pork and sides and a preview of their up and coming two and three-year-old line-up for 2008. Sixteen two-year-olds and five three-year-olds were shown to the crowd. They were by many different stallions including José José, John FK’s Delight, Steady Cash, Ted Williams, Spot Me Some Cash, Pushover’s Heartbeat, Stainless Steel, Pusher All Color, Lined With Cash, Out On Parole, The Skywatch and Gen’s Armed And Dangerous. Sam and Gary Martin presented the colts while Johnny Hewitt was the announcer for the day. Spectators and trainers came from all over to see these colts under saddle including Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and many more. The day turned out to be nice weather and fun for all with a great crop of colts ready for show season.
