Waterfall to recognize World Champion Breeders



At the 2007 Celebration Waterfall Farms is recognizing the breeders of World Champions sired by the stallions of Waterfall Farms.

From Waterfall Operations Manager David Williams, "Each year many World Champions are crowned and I’m always greeted by many with the phrase "Hey I raised that colt that won!" Well beginning this year on all World and World Grand Champions sired by Waterfall Stallions the chance to boast to others
will not be the only memento received by a breeder of a World Champion.

The breeder of the World Champion according to our records at Waterfall Farms will receive a replica of the actual ribbon awarded by the Celebration and a certificate deeming them as a Breeder of a World Champion Tennessee Walking Horse."

According to Waterfall Director of Sales and Marketing Marty Irby, "We feel this gesture of appreciation to the breeders of the offspring that go on to achieve World Championship status is more than overdue. The breeders of this year’s World Champions should expect their awards immediately after the Celebration."

In addition to the above awards at the 2007 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration there is a  World Grand Champion Weanling incentive award of $25,000 available to the offspring of A Specialist, Generator’s Man of Magic, Generator’s Santana, Gen’s Black Gin, JFK, JFK All Over, John F. K.’s Delight, and Our American Eagle. This incentive will be split between the breeder of record and the recorded owner at the time of victory.

Also from Waterfall Farms at the 2007 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration there is a World Grand Champion Yearling incentive award of $25,000 available for the offspring of Gen's Black Gin, John F. K.'s Delight, and Pusher Busting Loose. This incentive will be split between the breeder of record and the recorded owner at the time of victory.

Waterfall Farms is very proud of the offspring from their stallions. At the 2006 Celebration alone the offspring of Waterfall stallions were awarded 9 World Grand Championships, 36 World Championships, 36 Reserve World Championships.
