PostSubject: Oldest trainers   Fri Jan 23, 2009 7:20 pm

I have it on pretty good authority that Jimmy Gray is 85. But J.T. is 92 and will be 93 here in the next few weeks.

But Don Lominac from NC is probably the oldest trainer still actively showing and training horses.

When I was a kid, I showed my juvenile horse out of their barn. One of the memories that will stay with me forever is going through the gate at the Celebration and coming out of the first turn and looking through the horses ears at the grandstand. It looked like it was a million miles away. My dad and Marianne were on the rail at her box right there at the gate, and I thought I would never get back to them. (This was before ear phones, but I can't ride with those things to this day.) I wasn't sure where J.T. was, but at some point about halfway through the grandstand turn, I heard him yelling. I have never been so glad to hear someone's voice in my life.

And do any of you know what I mean when I say that I survived the back hall? Boy, can J.T. crack a whip!!!

They used to have chickens that would wonder around the back hall. The first time I was riding my juvenile horse for them, I would stop every time one of the chickens would run out in front of us. I made about 1 round starting and stopping for the chickens before J.T. pulled me over and told me he would give me $1.00 for every chicken that Blue Sun and I stepped on. At 12 that seemed like easy money. That was more than 35 years ago and I have yet to get a dollar off of J.T.

Everette,
A few years ago, I was standing by the entrance ramp, talking to Jake (Jane M's Dad), while he was smoking. A Guy from Woodbury started talking to us & noticed Jake was smoking. He said old man, if You don't quit that, you won't make it to 90. Jake said, I'm already 91.

Who trained at Middle Tn. Walking Horse Stables? That looks like a big operation for those days.
The prices in 39 were excellent. $1000 would buy an awful lot back then.

Man n blak,
Right off hand, I couldn't say. Maybe Clarence Blanks, Buddy Kirbys Dad (Fred) or Doug Stubblefield. I think Tom Reynolds & others owned it. Theres a Mall there now.
All the above items are from our collection.

SB...I was told Joe Urguhart (NC) trained MIDNIGHT MACK K out of that McMinnville barn. Also, said Jimmy Messinger trained there and at one time had horses for Lester Flatt. It did stand where is now the Three Star Mall. At one time it was owned by the Harris family. Not sure this info is accurate, but that's what my friend was always told and he wasen't born then.

OHM & Everett,
I couldn't say yeah or nay about who trained there, without doing some research. Here are the McM trainers I've heard of, Fred & Buddy Kirby, Clarence Blanks, Ernest Upton, Ray Holder & Doug Stubblefield.
Flat & Messengers barn was at Sparta. Jim Messenger was in with Roper (Fla) at Patent Leather in Wartrace.

E...I don't remember Lester Flatt even owning a WH, but apparently he did. Do you recall Jimmy and Joe being at the McMinnville barn?

SB...He said Jim M at one time, was in a Sparta barn. Thinks Lester may have owned that barn.

E...I thought Jim was at the old barn (Patent Leather?). The one on the hill, where Horse Mtn Rd. runs into Bell Buckle Rd. Very close to Wartrace show grounds. Buddy Hugh was there at one time. I thought Susan's barn was the old one on 82. Not far from Winky, Beverly Burgess, and Linda Hackel.
