Could be wrong but I am pretty sure Shades of Carbon is buried in Florence AL.

Also, Sundance Star is burried at the former 5-Way farm . It is in the middle of the woods between Vance and Coaling AL (near Tuscaloosa). I was working there when he died.


I think their was a article on this topic in the Blue Ribbon about 10 years ago. Maybe someone could find it.

Thanks for the info, StepNFetch,

There's a lot of "evidence" pointing to Louisiana as Shades final resting place, but if you can find any more info pointing towards Florence, Alabama, I'd like to hear it.

Sounds like you were an "eyewitness" to the burial of Pride's Sundance Star, and that's about as good as it gets for collecting information. I'll update that one. thumbs up


CURBCHAIN..............you a Louisana man. See what you can find out about Shades......

I am inclined to agree with Step&Fetch on Shades. After Mr. Loe passed away Shades changed hands several times but his last owner was Laura Taylor from Florence, Alabama.

I will try to talk to Flip Statham about Shades of Carbon. He will know for sure. Shades lived until the mid 90's breing bred mostly to racking stock.

Doc's High Tribute is burried at Aymets barn in Lewisburg from a pretty decent source. I also got conformation on Shades in Florence...at Laura Taylors farm.

We took care of Piddley when he was in Ohio. Old Piddley had an injury on his hind leg, that had scarred pretty bad and in his later years developed like a "cancer" there. Proud flesh etc that needed intermittent care. He was owned by John Guroy of Painesville. Dale worked for him from 1973-1975. Pidddley was bred to Mr Guroy's mares, never really produced anything noteworthy. The ones we started were "racky" going, but pretty as a picture and hot.... somehow I think there was a good dose of saddlebred coming out in them. A lot of the best broodmares he owned were bred to the studs in TN though, Ebony, Handshaker and Bum as I recall.

The only show hoss I remember by Piddley was Air Gun. I think Kathy Thompson won an amateur stud class with him at the Celebration in the early 70s. Piddley had two saddlebred great grand parents which may explain his looks and racky get.

Thanks EVERYONE for your help on this project. It's taking all of us putting our heads together to get it done.
Also special THANKS to Sowega for suggesting this............it's an important bit of documentation; one that I don't believe anyone else has undertaken. Keep it up!

A few guesses..............Just throwin these out there for discussion:

Melody Maid & City Girl................maybe at Rambo's Oakwood Acres, Fayetteville ???
Black Angel...............................possibly her final owners farm: Mr. and Mrs. David Moreton, Jo Mo Stables, Brookhaven, Mississippi ???
Midnight Merry..........................either at Steve Hills OR at last owner's place in Mississippi ???
Rodger's Perfection..................Searcy, Arkansas??? or Shelbyville, Tennessee ???
Sun's Delight...........................I want to say Harlinsdale, but is that where he stood at stud???
Go Boy's Sundust....................did he stand at stud in Alabama???
Ace's Sensation......................wouldn't Sugarloaf Farms be a good bet?
Sensational Shadow...............Georgia???
Delight Bummin Around............Sand Creek???
The Super Stock.......................Mason isn't sure, but sez he thinks maybe Mississippi???
Mark Of Carbon.........................I think Ragens place in Missouri is a good bet....
Threat's Supreme......................I dunno........owners were from Indiana
Mountain Man, Bold Courier, Delight of Pride..........I haven't the foggiest!

Bold Courier is burried at Mike Thomas's I think. I am going to say Ronnie Stanfills in Lexington TN for Super Stock. Sent David Sisk a FB message about Delight of Pride. Bummin Around 10 Tucky......I am going to call Karl Thompson tomorow and he will set many of these straight.

Go Boy's Sundust was in Arkansas late in life at the Frisbey's farm and Handshaker's Delight was a the Sterner farm in Pennsylvania.

It strikes me as sad that there are so many WGC whose final resting places are unknown.

Step...Is Talk of the Town buried in Resaca Ga? Someone told us he was buried at the Chitwood's farm in Resaca?? I have yet to get in touch with Hank but thought I would try after the holidays if we didn't have a definitive resting place for Talk by then.

A few observations:

• The farm in Fayetteville, TN just HAS to be Oakwood Acres
• Surprised Black Angel is buried in Fayetteville. Thought she MIGHT be buried at Beeches, since he was the last to train her
• It appears Johnny Brown was RIGHT about Talk Of The Town !
• Nothing on Midnight Merry or Rodger's Perfection, Go Boy's Sundust ???
• I think it has been confirmed that Triple Threat died at MSU. I'll ask around about this...
• Where was Charles Massey's farm?
• Had no idea B. Major Wilson was in Virginia...


THANKS for the great effort Step! bow down
