6/20/15 V is for Victory.....and Valiant.... and Valley

6/20/15  Here is a quick look at some great Saddlebreds with names beginning with the letter "V".  We're getting close to the end of the alphabet, so then what?

CH Valley Lane's Tender Mist
f. 1963 Private Contract X Oman's Anacacho Maytime (BHF)
This 3 gaited mare was a full blood sister to Yorktown,
he by Wing Commander and she by Private Contract.
She was shown simply as Tender Mist.

CH Valley Venture
 f. 1976   Dutch Commander X Lifetime Affair (BHF)
He began his show career as a 5 gaited horse,
but earned his CH as a 3 gaited star.

CH Valley View Supreme
f. 1952  Genius Bourbon King X Diana Gay (BHF)
He was the first stallion to be crowned
3 gaited World's Grand Champion
A candid picture of CH Valley View Supreme

CH Victory Tide Blue
 f. 1972  Anacacho's All American X My Victory

Denmark Vixen
f. 1952  Anacacho Denmark X Edgemorr's Gloria Gleason
Not really a great example of the "V" horses,
but she was the only Vixen with a picture.

Plush Velvet
f.  1975  Mr. Magic Man X Caren Supreme
Once again, not a great example of a "V" horse, but the only
Velvet with a picture.  While it's not a very pretty picture,
she is a very pretty mare and was bred by the Ruxer's.

The Valiant V
f. 1929  Oklahoma Peavine X Fair Acre Blossom (BHF)
He was a full brother to the great mare,
CH My Golden Dawn (BHF)

Valley View's Drummer Boy
 f. 1958  Genius Bourbon King X Highland Sylvia (BHF)

Valley's Desdemona Denmark
 f. 1966  Oman's Desdemona Denmark X Dixie Duchess (BHF)
One of the many full siblings from this great cross.

This phenomenal mare  was shown simply as Vanity,
but her actual name was CH Meadow Vanity (BHF)
f. 1935 Meadow Majesty X Live Wire Beauty

Vanity's Sensation of Crebilly
f. 1947  Sensation Rex X CH Meadow Vanity (BHF)
grandsire of Buddy, Best Ever Saddlebred

Victory Ace
f. 1945  American Ace X Fairy Slippers by Kalarama Rex
Starheart Victory
f. 1962  Victory Ace X High Point Flame (BHF)
His sire is pictured above.

Victory Miss
 f. 1938  Gallant Knight X Jessamine Chieftain

Vztop Realization
f. 1947  Nawbeek's Highland King X Sally Of Vztop
Vztop Stables was owned by Lupton Veazey Rainwater,
hence the name Vztop. 

That's it for this week.  The next post will be in July,
and one I've been planning for nearly a year.
Rarely do I plan a week in advance, so you know it will
be special.
