Putnam County Fair Celebrates Motown



by Linda Scrivner

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – In August and September, exhibitors and spectators have a different type of horse show to attend. During these months, county fairs bring fun to Middle Tennessee and along with it a relaxed fun-type horse show. The horses compete in large numbers against a backdrop of bright-colored fair lights and stands full of people cheering for their favorites. Those present enjoyed fair music and fair food in addition to viewing talented horses.

The Putnam County Fair Horse Show is one of the first of these, and the large audience was very appreciative of the horses showing. Around 200 entered with several classes having over 10 horses in the class. Frankie Joe Bradley judged the show of 29 classes.

The stake class had three horses, and Scott Beaty and Radar’s Motown continued their undefeated season with the championship blue for Ted and Bernice Turner. Reserve went to the team of Ritz’s American Idol and Jeff Byrom for the Bruce White family. Picking up the third position was Billy Morgan aboard Blue Blooded Bandit for Raymond Pedigo.
