Copyright WHR 2006

The undefeated Owner/Amateur Two-Year-Old World Grand Champion, Roll The Gold, has been selected to be on exhibition during the University of Tennessee Homecoming game September 23, 2006. He will be ridden by owner Spud Warr and is trained by Chad Williams.

The game will feature a crowd of over 106,000 fans and will pit UT against Marshall University. “We are excited to be able to showcase the Tennessee Walking Horse in front of such a large and appreciative audience”, said David L. Howard, President of Dabora Inc. and a member of the Athletics Board at the University. “He is an outstanding example of the quality young horses this breed produces and Spud Warr is one of our breed's finest exhibitors.”

Howard continued “We remain indebted to the University for allowing us to showcase this breed to a national audience and the many courtesies extended to our contingent at the games, particularly by the UT School of Veterinary Medicine and Dr. John Henton.”

This program is a cooperative effort on the part of the UT Athletics Department, the UT Vet School and David Howard. This program has been in existence since the University changed from artificial turf to a natural grass field. It has reached literally millions of people either in person or on television and is one of the most positive promotional activities for the breed.
