I am probably wrong, but I don't think any of them were stallions.

Actually, you are quite correct BF!

Strolling Jim & Peacock were geldings; Melody Maid, Black Angel & City Girl were all mares.
Midnight Sun was the FIRST stallion WGC in '45.

Mr. Escue went to Sam Paschal and asked him to find a horse that could win the WGC. They looked at several and decided on Sun's Delight and nine months later he was the WGC. Mr. Escue had only owned Walking Horses for about a year and didn't build a barn until 63.

HELL ya'll - I remember it - WELL! It was my first Celebration - thought that I had died and gone to heaven. And I made up my mind that I was going to ride in that ring - and I did! It took a couple of years and a few tears and maybe a little temper tantrum or two. But Daddy finally gave in to the "show horse" bug - He was a field trial - "using horse" man through and through - just didn't have much appreciation for the show horses. However, once he was infected he was every bit as bad if not worse than me.

I was 5. too. I was just teasing y'all! I do remember the Wrights very well since we all showed out of Doug's barn. I would sure like to know about Jan now. She was good to me as a kid. She was one of my riding idols( along with Hill and Bubbadog). I think my first celebration must have been '65 or '66.
