It Was A Pushover as Harris Won Consecutive Stake

by Linda Scrivner

EAGLEVILLE, Tenn. – The Eagleville Lions Club Horse Show was held on a hot Saturday, June 20, on the Eagleville Tractor Club Show Grounds off Highway 99. Judge Jeff Green of Shelbyville, Tenn., marked the cards for the evening. The show had wonderful concessions including a homemade ice cream stand.

The horses were inspected by SHOW and USDA officials. Hollis Kelley, an Eagleville Lions Club member, stated, “Thanks to all who supported our horse show. The one-night horse show always has and always will be the backbone of our industry. If you don’t support the shows today, we won’t have the opportunity to support these shows in the future”

Justin Harris won the Riders’ Cup Championship Stake aboard The Santana Pushover for Wilson Blaylock after a second running walk was called. Earlier this season, the team won the 15.2 & Under class at Petersburg Lions Club Show, as well as stake classes last season at Children’s Miracle Network and the William Way Memorial. Harris also won the Stake the previous night at Liberty Lions Club Show with World Grand Champion Lined Walkin. World Champion Boomer In Command and Andy Adkins were reserve in the class for John and Becky Sharp. Boomer In Command had two previous 2009 blues from the Mississippi Charity.
