On The Run To Belfast



by Stephanie Rose

BELFAST, Tenn. - The historical 49th annual Belfast Lions Club Horse Show was held Friday, July 31, 2009, at 7 p.m. at the S.W. Beech Memorial Field in Belfast, Tenn. The program was cut short this year to 20 classes. Mickey McCormick of Shelbyville, Tenn., did the honors of judging the event.

Two-time World Grand Champion Gen On The Run and Link Webb topped the Walking Horse Stake for Michael and Ty Hart of Corbin, Ky. Webb also took home top honors with George W. McClintock for the new partnership of Holland, Kilgore and Lovett. Strike It Bold and Justin Harris were reserve in the stake for Kimberly Geczi of Shelbyville, Tenn. Freedom Fighter and Charlie Green rounded out the top three for Dennis and Rusty Shoffner.

Several newly acquired horses showed at Belfast and brought home the blue besides George W. McClintock. Michael and Jeanette Taylors’ recent purchase, The Dangerous Answer, picked up top honors in the Riders’ Cup Two-Year-Old Mare & Gelding class with Bill Callaway. The new team of Lucy In The Sky and Gayla Kail wore out the blue in the Amateur Three-Year-Old Mare & Gelding class for Jada Kail. Ritz Tornado went to the winner’s circle with Jeff Green in the Open Specialty Pony class. Mike and Beth Davis of Shamrock Farms just bought him for their daughter, Meghan. The Yearling Champion I Walk A Fine Line, with Brian Wright, has a new partnership that involves Wright, Richards, Curtis and now Barker. Last, but certainly not least, Miller Carlton borrowed the reins of Forbidden from her mother, Renee, and captured the winning honors in the youth division their first time in the ring together.
