BD,

I agree. That's Mr. & Mrs. H.C. Bailey & their daughter Cathy in the picture with Mack & M.R. Motes & Mr. & Mrs. Chitwood. The Bailey's owned Go Boy's Shadow for several years. They stood him at their barn in Jackson & later partnered with Mr. Jack Montgomery to form Bailey-Montgomery Stables in S'Ville. Percy Moss, Ronnie Spears & others trained out of their Jackson barn for several years. They were friends & neighbors of my Aunt & Uncle in Jackson. They were really nice folks.



Isn't that Hill & her family with Mr. Bobo & H.P. in the 3rd photo down on the right?

Dboy,
Do you know if Buford Chitwood from Resaca Ga. & Dr CC Chitwood from Lafayette Tn were related? That is sort of an uncommon name in these parts. Also, no one has pointed out the picture with Candace Williams, Her Dad, Grandad, Donald Paschal, is that C's mother & brother (Stuart) or someone else?
Hill,
If that was your little brother, did he show horses also?

The owner of Royal Heir when Steve Hill had him was not WAYNE Clark. It was Mrs. DeWayne Clark of Ca. He was a beautiful horse to look at in the cross ties, but mainly a racky type in the ring.

I believe that Mr. Dwaine Clark had died by this time [approx. 1967] & Royal Heir was shown in the name of Mrs. Clark. Mr. Clark & Mr. Billy Duncan of Inverness, Miss. partnered on several top horses including Royal Heir & Hill's Perfection. They were two of Steve Hill's most loyal customers.

Looks like Kakis' were in style for men. Looks like a woman ringmaster out in the middle. The winners of this mare & foal class were, Gertrude Hargess & Brantleys High Ace with JR Byron listed as owner.

I think this particular photo is one of my favorites because it not only shows the horses, but also the spectators and interest in the Celebration in it's very early stages. It captures with great clarity the style and mood of that time, over 60 years ago. I notice the men are not only wearing kakis, but many are wearing ties and have on hats. Most of the ladies are wearing dresses and many have on hats as well. Umbrellas (parasols?) were often used by the women to keep the sun off them. The gentleman on the right seems to be watching with great interest and anticipation.

Little did these folks know that in about 3 months the Japanese would bomb Pearl Harbor; the United States would declare war on the Axis Powers; and the world would change, forever.

If you look at the caption under the upper rh picture, you'll notice the name Duncan, DeltaBoy recently commented that Billy Duncan was a longtime customer of Steve Hill. This is the same Mister Sensation that our Sensation61 showed out of Vic Thompsons barn in the early 60's & was by WGC Merry Go Boy. The Eatons were also Steves longtime customers.

Senator69,
Do You know who the young white boy is in the Senator pix (mebbe you or Dave D's)?
I wonder if Peck C. bought Senator with the money that He got for Untouchable (or traded)?
Marvin has them sleeves rolled up like a 2 time WGC winner that OHM knows.

DB and SB;

Sorry; I know I am late in answering your question in reference to my brother; Lane. No; he did not show. Daddy bought a Walking Pony for him sometime around 1967-68; but he was never interested and would not go to the barn to practice. Actually; I think he was a little scared of the horses and you know if you are scared; you can't ride. My daddy sold the pony and listed Lane as co-owner of our horses so he would feel as if he was a part of the business.

Great group of pictures from 1969 and those that followed too. I agree those were great years...I think I was very lucky to have been showing during that time and into the 1970s. Truly fortunate to have met so many good people; made lifelong friends; and wonderful memories...truly some of the best times of my life.
