I'd say that Merry Go Boy and Ebony Masterpiece is buried at the Beech's.

Right you are Dutch, According to pictures on the Walkers West web site, both Ebony and MGB are buried at the Beech Stables and I think another top sire is buried there as well, but I'm not sure if it was a WGC.

Would Shadow be buried at Beech's too.... possibly Another Masterpiece, wasn't he standing there when he died. Secret Threat is buried at Sand Creek and Hard Cash is buried at Waterfall

Seems I remember someone saying on here once that The Pusher was buried at Joe Martin Stables.
Can anyone confirm that?

Have messaged Cena Martin to verify The Pusher's burial at JMS. It would make sense that he's there since he was standing @ stud with them.

1966 WGC Shaker's Shocker was buried beside the barn where he was stabled on the Sain property in Bell Buckle. A monument was erected in his honor. The home place and land was recently ( Spring, 2010) purchased by the Webb School and a historic marker placed commemorating Betty Sain and Shocker. Nothing was mentioned about whether the gravesite was still marked.

Smitty, can we post beside or under the ones we are sure of so that we can proceed to research the others? I am sure that Rebel is buried at Allan Callaway's and Sun's Jet Parade and perhaps Senator at Vic's old barn. That is also correct about Shaker's Shocker.

Sarah Dunn might know about Motown Magic. She's on Facebook if anyone wants to message her. I'm trying to remember something said on here about Ebony's True Grit............seems like Bonny Cady/The Horse Hub were mentioned. Did he stand at stud there? Someone may want to message her on FB as well.

Famous Horse Grave Sites

Famous Throughbred grave sites:

http://www.tbheritage.com/TurfHallmarks/Graves/GraveMattersIndex.html


Here's another list of famous Non-Thoroughbred grave sites:

http://www.tbheritage.com/TurfHallmarks/Graves/GraveMattersNonTB.html



Like a Star @ heaven From these lists, I notice foundation TWH Tom Hal is buried at Milky Way Farm in Pulaski, TN. I also notice the great Saddlebred Yorktown is buried at Oak Hill Farm in Harrodsburg, Ky. My My is buried at Frank Bradshaw's old stable in Georgetown, Ky. There are lots and lots of graves at the Ky Horse Park (Man O War, Imperator, Skywatch) as well as many farms surrounding Lexington, especially at Castleton & Walnut Hall. I'm also quite amazed at the number of well-known horses buried here in Woodford County, where I live. An old famous foundation Saddlebred called Black Squirrel is buried here. Quite a few Thoroughbreds are buried at Lane's End and Three Chimneys as well.

From Dee Dee Sale
"Masquerading as you probably know was cremated. His ashes are interred in a monument my dad built for him in the large flower garden in front of the homeplace in Richmond, KY. "

Thanks Graymare!

I'm thinking perhaps a couple of those champs MIGHT be buried in Morehead, Ky. Maybe B. Major's Wilson and I know Triple Threat was pretty old when he stood at Morehead State University Stables. Maybe someone out there might know.

Also, was Sun's Delight buried at Harlinsdale??? Seems I remember a headstone somewhere....
Can anyone confirm the ones that are buried at Vic Thompson's old barn?
Wonder if any were buried at Frank Rambo's old place?
Could Old Glory's Big Man be buried in Quincy, Florida???
Could a couple of these be buried in Arkansas???
Was Gen's A&D buried in California???
I contacted Lee Lenox on Carbon Copy's burial place. Haven't heard back yet...

I was just setting here reading about all of these great horses who are no longer alive and got to wondering if maybe we shouldn't use some of this cloning and DNA technology to dig a few of these things up and see if the breed could benefit from having a refresher course of those genetics.
Then again, there maybe a few that might ought to be treated like sleeping dogs and leave 'em layin'.

I am wondering what the cause of death was. I am in shock to see some of the most recent ones that have past. I had no idea... Sad

I went with the Stewart's out to see the Piddley colt they won, I have a pic of it somewhere. Didn't make a show horse that I can recall.

I always thought Piddley was a beautiful horse but I can't remember any top quality horses that he produced?? I am sure he must have or he wouldn't have been promoted so strongly. I had a picture of him hanging on my wall when I was a little girl...I though he was one of the prettiest TWH I had ever seen!

I noticed above that they mentioned my first TWH Duke of Delina's death and stated he was one of the "South's most loved"...I didn't realize he was all that well known. Margaret Hubbard had owned him prior to us and had shown him successfully as did I; but I thought that both of us mainly showed him in NC one-nighters. He was a nice little gelding with a lot of walk and a great personality. Now you talk about a little girl with a broken heart; the day he died my parents got me out of school (because they were afraid I would hear about it..the school was close to Jack's barn) and my Daddy had to carry me to the car I was crying so hard. Sad

Mark Taylor agreed with me about Jet Parade and Senator. I am heading over that way later today and will try to see if I can nail it down.
