Sorry, had to move my cat off the program so I could turn a page. He keeps me company! The 5-gaited Junior stake had some very well known names, as the first place winner Garrymore went on to many more wins, as did 2nd place Socko. Garrymore was the 5-gaited gelding stake winner at the Kentucky State Fair several times and Socko was one of Dodge Stables' stalwart performers. Third place went to Society Kalarama who was later a breeding stallion.

Friday night brought more classes including equitation, hackney, walking horse and roadsters, but I'm sticking with the Saddlebreds, of course. In the two year old fine harness stake, first went to Dainty Breeze, 2nd to Mr. America and third to Dyna Glow. Listed as an entry, but evidently not making the class was future 5 gaited star and breeding stallion, Gallant Guy O'Goshen.

The Open 5 gaited class was won by Dodge Stable's Lover's Lane. Since Dodge Stables' mare Showboat won the 5 gaited mare stake, this was the only class for Lover's Lane to show in. The sensational mare As Beauty Does was also listed as an entrant, but either didn't show, or didn't place.

Just a day after showing in the Amateur 3 gaited class, the Amateur 3 gaited stake class took place. Sam Spade took 2nd this time and Ace's Linda Lee was 4th.
In the 3 year old 5 gaited stake, Dodge Stables prevailed again with Moon Glitter winning the tri-color. Denmark's Bourbon Genius, a future breeding stallion took third place.

That's all until the 1:00PM Saturday Matinee and 8:00PM Saturday night session for the next post.
