11/8/14 1968 Kentucky State Fair Jr. Exhibitor results

11/8/14  Part 2 of the 1968 KSF Horse Show program features the Junior Exhibitor classes.  The class offerings back then were vastly different.  Not including equitation classes, there were only five junior exhibitor classes.  There was a 5 Gaited Mare class, 5 Gaited gelding class, 3 Gaited mare class, 3 Gaited gelding class, and the Minton Memorial for 3 gaited horses.  That's it.  No champion classes, nothing was divided.  They had to bring their "A" game to each class, because there was no opportunity for adjustment when they showed back in the championship.  There was a pleasure horse class, but it doesn't appear that the entrants were all registered, including one entry named What's 'Er Name.

Dr. Elrod's program didn't have results from the equitation classes, but some of the youths listed as entrants included Debbie Foley, Frankie Bird, Dana Lyon, Carol Auerbach, Mary Gaylord, Barbe Walton, Jamie Davis, Kristy Gruenberg, R.H. Bennett, Jane Lederer, Nancy Fisher, Janet Henry, Cindy Zubrod, Cathy Noble,  Debbie Basham and Andrea Walton.  Quite a number of these exhibitors are still involved in one way or another with the saddle horse industry.

Here are the results:

3.  Follarama
4.  Flavor Taste
5.  entry
6.  Miss Barbara
7. (Sally's) Dear Sir
Dr. Elrod noted in a couple of places the Dear Sir was bad.  He had a physician's penmanship, so I can't make it out completely, but it's plain that he didn't approve.  Dear Sir had won this class in 1966. Ann Thompson was VG for very good, and Flavor Taste was noted as bad manners. 
CH Local Talent and April Denham
f. 1958  American Dictator X Front Cover by King's Genius

(My) Annaclair and Janet Henry
f 1957  Ridgefields Denmark X Emerald's Sweet Sue
She was shown as simply Annaclair

Dr. Elrod noted in this class that Flavor Taste was off balance, and she didn't place.  In 1964, Flavor Taste had been the Reserve World's Grand Champion 3 gaited horse, but evidently the 1968 KSF wasn't her show in Dr. Elrod's opinion.  That's too bad since she was obviously a very talented and lovely mare.

Come back next week to view the results of the Amateur section.
