In what has turned out to be a very late night here at the 2020 AQHA World Show, a number of Halter champions were crowned. Steve Ferguson was at the lead of So So Secretive to win 2-Year-Old Geldings. Reserve was Jason Smith with Evenger. Third was Tim Finkenbinder with HR Ante Up.
The winner of 3-Year-Old Stallions was Luke Castle with CR Peacemaker. Reserve was Ted Turner with Solitude. Third was Buddy Laney with FG Mr McDreamy. We had the chance to chat with Katie Fox last week, when she led Peacemaker to win the amateur division of this class. Click here to read her interview.
Buddy Laney was at the lead of FG Born Legacy to win Aged Stallions. Reserve was Dewey Smith with Whoisit. Third was Tom Robertson with Romeiro.
We had the opportunity to speak with Linda Gordon about her 4-year-old, double registered stallion “Legacy,” who is by FG A Tru Fella and out of I Execute Class. Last year, Legacy was the Reserve Champion as a three-year-old, and this is his first year in the aged division and his first World Championship title.
“I love his short back and pretty little head with little ears,” Linda says. “He has a lot of expression and is very correct. He’s pretty over the croup. He’s the whole package.” And that’s not to mention his eye-catching coloring.
“He showed really well tonight. He should be shown at 8 in the morning, not 8 at night, so he did very good.”
This young stallion will be joining Linda’s already impressive list of sires at Fossil Gate Farms, and he already has his first foal crop on the ground. “His first foals are weanlings this year, and they’ve already done really well. He is double registered AQHA and APHA, and we’re looking forward to breeding a lot of mares.”
In Aged Geldings, Tom Robertson led Mister Over Easy to a win. Reserve was Luke Castle with McLintock. Third was Jason Smith with Lu Johnny. In 3-Year-Old Mares, Monte Horn led KR Xfiniti to a win. Reserve was Ross Roark with Magnificense. Third was Tim Finkebinder with Sheza Fearless Diva. Fourth was Ted Turner with Intrigueing. Fifth was Jeffrey Pait with FG Miss Cool Ultra.
