I went to the Jr. League show a long time ago. We went on Saturday night. Mighta been one of those years between '66 and '68. Walking horses weren't in that one, I do remember that. And I remember seeing, for the first time, equitation riders switch horses.

Is that lady with the long whip Helen Crabtree?

Smitty,I'm not sure of the yrs. I know Steve Hill and some of the Tenn.boys being there.I thought we didn't quit showing there until we started having alot of the problems we are still plagued with.like maybe the late 60's .I remember Steve winning with either Spirit of Midnight or Little Mystery.Steve could win about anywhere he went.

Lady with the long whip isn't Helen Crabtree, was there an older lady by the Name of Mrs. Lee that showed saddlebreds? Think Paul Raines is on one of the Gaited horses and Susie Hammond (I Think) is the young girl on one of the 5-gaited horses. We hauled our saddlebreds from Omaha for a number of years to show at the Lexington show...that's when folks dressed up to go to the shows and it was a social event. Lots of cocktail parties, everyone stayed at the Campbell House and ate the wondrful KY. Hot Browns. Wish I had one right now. Did I get any of them correct Smitty?

S61,

I'm afraid I don't have the names available of those riders in the photos. You are right about the lady, she is not Helen Crabtree. The Campbell House is still there, although it's called Crown Point Plaza now. I used to go to many parties and horse banquets there back in the day. Had some real good times at the ole Campbell House.


Glad you mentioned the Kentucky Hot Brown.............one of my favorites (although very fattening) The Hot Brown was invented in Louisville at the famous Brown Hotel. I've seen them done in a variety of ways, but this picture looks like most of the authentic ones I've dined on.



Here's the ORGINAL recipe for a Ky Hot Brown from the Brown Hotel:

Ingredients (Makes Two Hot Browns):
2 oz. Whole Butter
2 oz. All Purpose Flour
1 Qt. Heavy Cream
1/2 Cup Pecorino Romano Cheese, Plus 1 Tablespoon for Garnish
Salt & Pepper to Taste
14 oz. Sliced Roasted Turkey Breast
2 Slices of Texas Toast (Crust Trimmed)
4 slices of Crispy Bacon
2 Roma Tomatoes, Sliced in Half
Paprika, Parsley

In a two-quart saucepan, melt butter and slowly whisk in flour until combined and forms a thick paste (roux). Continue to cook roux for two minutes over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Whisk whipping cream into the roux and cook over medium heat until the cream begins to simmer, about 2-3 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and slowly whisk in Pecorino Romano cheese until the Mornay sauce is smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

For each Hot Brown, place one slice of toast in an oven safe dish and cover with 7 ounces of turkey. Take the two halves of Roma tomato and set them alongside the base of turkey and toast. Next, pour one half of the Mornay sauce to completely cover the dish. Sprinkle with additional Pecorino Romano cheese. Place entire dish under a broiler until cheese begins to brown and bubble. Remove from broiler, cross two pieces of crispy bacon on top, sprinkle with paprika and parsley, and serve immediately.

Like a Star @ heaven Note: You can also add (or substitute) HAM with the sliced Turkey in the above recipe. Most of the best hot browns I've eaten have BOTH..........just my opinion. Like a Star @ heaven

Thanks Smitty, The Hot Browns I've had, have had both ham & Turkey...I started to mention in my other post the first one I ever ate was at the Brown Hotel in Louisville. What was the name of the resturant that was right next door to Tattersal's sale? In fact you could walk out a side door of the sale and across the parking lot to it? Lot's of folks kept that drive way hot going back and forth to get a cocktail.

I think you're probably talking about The Coach House; a fairly high-brow place. It is still there, I believe. There also used to be a college drinking bar called 801 South on the other side of Tattersalls. You might be thinking about it. Used to be a pretty rockin place during ballgames. It is long gone. A Speedway gas station is there now. There also used to be a restaurant across the street from Tattersalls called Roger's. They also had a bar. My grandmother used to love to eat there. It lasted for a long time and was one of the very last Mom & Pop restaurants to close down. Lexington used to have some great restaurants, but alas, most have been replaced by chain restaurants like everywhere else. (sigh).

What Kentucky town was home to a WGC Tennessee Walking Horse AND a WGC Five-Gaited Saddlebred who both won their respective titles within a year of each other?

No. Harrodsburg is not correct, but you have the right horses. Think just a little farther south. Rolling Eyes

I took these shots last week when I was down that way.



Mitch Clark Stables, former Home of 1982 Five-Gaited WGC Skywatch
South side of Danville, Ky






The former Baker & McQuerry Stables, former home of 1981 WGC TWH The Pusher
North side of Danville, Ky



This is nothing but a field next to the barn, but the site of it always summons a lot of emotions for me. The fence row you see in the distance had a riding path alongside it. Many great horses, including The Pusher, Reve's Little Boy, Ebony Go Boy's Dream, Ebony's Go Go Girl and many, many others were MADE along that fence row. Along that path and the ring on the other side of that fence row was the place I learned to ride a show horse many years ago.

That is some GREAT memories Smitty.When I go to S'ville and I'm on my way out to Bobo's I always stop out at the old Casey Jones barn where Marvin and I moved to in '70 after he won the WGC in '69.We had some good times in that old barn.Made some pretty good stock there too.Dude Crowder was also there for a while so I've got a lot of memories at that old barn.

Smitty,

Do the Caldwell's still own the property where Bob's barn was? Is the house still there? That was an awesome house for those parts back in the day.

I would guess the Caldwells still own the house and property.(?) I believe Peggy is still living. Somebody named Billy Joe Hays trains out of that barn now. The house still looks awesome. I would call it a mansion, and I'll bet it's on the historical register. I would love to know a little about the history of that house and farm.

Walt Bruner Stables

My earliest recollection of this barn was when it was called Gordon Stables. Many trainers have been in and out of this barn over the years. I believe Buddy Dick was one of them. Also Vicki Self for a while. I'm sure there were many more, but my memory is failing me on those names. I think both Walking Horses and Saddlebreds have been trained out of this barn .

The Kentucky Celebration


Mercer County Fairgrounds
This is supposedly the site of the oldest county fair & horse show in the U.S. The old show ring was perfectly round with covered grandstands. It had box seats in the middle of the ring, believe it or not. One of the most unique show rings I've ever seen. Unfortunately it burned in the 80s. A real shame. The ring you see below is the one that replaced it, but it too suffered partial damage in a fire a couple of years ago. I think perhaps the middle section burned down completely. This was home of the Kentucky Celebration in the 90s. It still hosts a Saddlebred show during the county fair, but does not offer TWH classes anymore.












Note: I should mention that Bob Mcquerry once trained out of one of these barns at the Mercer County Fairgrounds. Not sure which one.


Anderson County Fairgrounds
Lawrenceburg, Kentucky

This was home to the Kentucky Celebration throughout the 70s and part of the 80s. In my mind, some of the best walking horse shows in Kentucky happened right here.

I believe the Shelby County showgrounds may have been the first location of the Kentucky Celebration back in the late sixties, but I could be wrong.


Note: The Ky Celebration has also been held at the Morehead State University Arena and at the Kentucky Horse Park. It is currently held in Liberty, Kentucky.

I saw Tom show at Owingsville summer before last. He is still training somewhere in Ky......I THINK. Believe he might have been training up in northern K-Y for a while. Cadillac will know for sure if I can find her.......
