PGA Wins Roses In The Rain At Lawrenceburg

by Stephanie Rose

LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn. - The 25th annual Crossroads Of Dixie Walking Horse Show was held at the Rotary Park in Lawrenceburg, Tenn., on Friday, June 13, 2008 at 7 p.m. Kenny Lawrence marked the cards for the 30 classes of the evening. J. Mack Chandler and Joe Gieske were the chairmen of the show. The show was sponsored by the Lawrenceburg Rotary Club.

When the youth walking pony division, the added class, came out of the ring, the rain began. That was just before the Championship Stake class. When the entries made the way in it continued to pour and everyone ran to get under the grandstands. Even though it continued to rain, the class was filled with good competition. The new team of PGA and Joel Weaver captured top honors in the good class for Robbie Lanier. General’s Show Stopper made a great show and earned the red streamer for Brad Murrath. The Blue Diamond and Link Webb were third for Larry Davis and Steal Justice with Jack Way rounded out the top four for S.J. Partners, LLC.

Not only did Rising Star claim the stake class but it also had wins in five other classes and topped the blue ribbon tally for the evening. Steve Nash and Lake Weaver won the Youth Pony class for the Pollack’s Silver Spur Ranch. The Pollacks’ horses won two other classes as well. Joel Weaver won with Hawk’s True Love in the Open Show Pleasure class and the Riders’ Cup 15.2 & Under with Adrenaline. OOP’s I’m Splashed and Rita Hudgens wore out the competition in the Amateur Four-Year-Old class and The Silver Bandit and Kim Leonard took home the blue in the Park Pleasure division.

Finish Line had three blues. Jo Ann Dowell’s new purchase Oh Maybe Baby won the Two-Year-Old Mare & Gelding class. Olympic’s Supergizer and Susan Coleman won the Park Performance division and I’m A Hustler and Sally Kenemer made the victory pass in the Amateur Specialty division.

Peebles Stables had dual blues. My Nine and Betty Corlew won the Amateur Three-Year-Old Mare & Gelding division. Larry Taylor and Jose’s Flashback went to the winners’ circle in the Three-Year-Old Mare & Gelding for Herb Murrath.

Derickson Training Facility also came out with two wins. Royal Fortune and Erica Derickson won the WHTA Ladies Auxiliary class. Thomas Derickson won the Youth 11 & Under class on Straight Cash for Mike and Connie May.
