Vengeance Against The Rain

By Ashlea Wheelon

On May 9, 2008 The Shelbyville Central Band Show held their 4th annual horse show. With 30 classes & over 200 entries this show was a success. A very big bonus is that only one class got wet from the rain. For the last four weeks the rain has hit Friday night horse shows. Bold Vengeance and Rodney Dick took the Walking Horse Stake for proud owner Judy McDonald. McDonald’s horses won a total of three blue ribbons Friday night. McDonald's daughter Gail Walling carried The Dixie Lineman and Black Cash Delight to the blue.

Two other owners had multiple blues at the show. Bud and Suzanne Moore took dual blues back to Alabama with WGC Zulu and Premium Tap. Knox Blackburn trains the entries. The Andy Rippy Family also had a great night with Threat’s Hooker and General Jackson Showboat. Bennett Stables and Blake Sims Stables trained these teams.

Many barns won multiple blues including: Mickey McCormick Stables, Finish Line Farms, Derickson Training Facility, Rising Star Ranch, Knox Blackburn Stables and Joe Fleming Stables. A complete list of results can be viewed by clicking here.
