I searched for 500 on the ASHA website. There is a horse named The Five Hundred, but sadly, no picture to share. He was a grandson of CH Wing Commander and Society Rex, and was bred by Emerald Farms in Dublin, Ohio,, so he could have been a good one. Instead, here are some interesting pictures to use for this weeks post.
The usual picture of Stonewall King has him standing with owner
Murray Cason. This head shot is a little different.
This grandson of Stonewall King showed in the parade division in the 1960's.
A post on parade horses is in the works.

What do these last four have in common?
They all share an important female ancestor who will also
be featured in an upcoming post. Make that posts.
She is my all time favorite broodmare.
This handsome black grandson of Supreme Sultan and Starheart Victory
stands at stud in Ohio.
Here is a top show mare of the 1930's who was purchased by
Spindletop Farms of Lexington Kentucky.
This blog loves to showcase old time show and breeding horses.
This lovely mare will probably always be a mystery.
Her rider appears to be Chester Caldwell and
the setting is the 1930's, but little else is known.
f. 1930 Bourbon Star by Bourbon King out of Princess McB by Rexall Prince by Rex Peavine
2nd dam by Bourbon King.
She is pictured here with Dr. Robert H. Elrod in 1936 or 1937.
Here is another picture of Meadow Mist with Dr. Elrod at the
Carranor Show in Perrysburg, OH in the late 1930's.
Just look at that crowd. Horse shows were great entertainment.
This is a close up of the same photo. Although Dr. Elrod was alone at his
end of the ring, he knew exactly where his competitors were as he came out of the turn
at the rack.
