I am going to guess Rodger's Perfection is buried at either Vic Thompson's or the old Gribble Farm in McMinnville (?)
Midnight Merry could have ended up as a broodmare at Rambo's in Fayetteville and buried there OR she may be buried at her last owner's place in Inverness, Mississippi. Could one or more of these champions be buried at the old Harold Wise Stable in Shelbyville? I have no clue on Sundust, Handshaker, Stock, Threat's Supreme, Motown Magic and Pushover.

Just pure speculation.

Pushover is alive and doing very well for his age last time I was by to see him at Ricky Womacks.

I have good leads on Handshaker's Delight, Bold Courier, Super Stock, and Motown and an idea where to start on Sundust.

Good detective work by S&F...nice to see the younger generation taking an interest. cheers

Smitty...Charles Massey Stables or the former Massey-Lindahl Stables..was located in Clarksville, TN on Rossview Rd. Doubt your familiar with the Rossview area, but over the last twenty yrs it BOOMED. I haven't been thru there in a long time and not sure the barn still exist. Several yrs back, part of the farm was subdivided and homes were built. Seems like the remaining acerage was later sold to a church. I'll have to ask Liz Gassaway about Massey's, she was raised in the area and her mother still lives close by.

I was trying to think who might know FOR SURE where Triple Threat is buried.....
Smokey Carswell would probably know, since I think he was the Stallion Mgr there at the time.
If anybody has contact with Smokey or his wife, drop em a line and ask them.

I just updated the grave info for Hayne's Peacock on P. 38 of this Topic. I added this photo of his grave marker just sent in by OHM, who visited Hayne's Haven Saturday and shot many photos of the place. I will be sharing the rest of those photos with everyone later this week. Hat's off to OHM! thumbs up

Ramsey thinks he's buried at Harlinsdale...but I don't recall his grave. I may be wrong, but seems like Pride actually expired from colic, while at Hagyard-Davidson-McGee.

Kathy said Roger's Perfection was not buried at Vic's...and she does not remember where.

Just updated the WGC Grave info on page 38 of this topic. I added a photo to the Go Boy's Royal Heir info.
This is Royal Heir's unmarked grave in Franklin.
Credit for this one also goes to OHM. Good job!

Smitty...You need to post the pic of the other grave, that's beside this one...another famous sire. Doubt many folks on here have seen it...and the new fence.

Also, "Rocky" did confirm, that PRIDE'S remains were left in Lexington.

Holly Liddell Sanders also told me, that MOTOWN was buried on Dr. Barbara Moersch's "Rolling Hills Farm"...and she will get you a pic of the grave.

Nearly forgot Triple Threat. Holly's going to contact Joe Fraley (Morehead farm mgr) and see if he will send her a pic of the grave. Holly said they were still breeding Triple Threat, while she was attending Morehead...but only to Ray Dunaway's mares...no others. Holly stated this was in the contract, when Mr. Dunaway donated Triple Threat to Morehead.
