OUT ON PAROLE Sentenced To Life As 2002 World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse by Tom Burriss The renowned red brick back drop that is unmistakably associated with Tennessee Walking Horse history was rejuvenated the last week of August for the 64th Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. Contestants were dressed in the traditional flair and stables were decorated with festive anticipation as all eyes and efforts were focused on the coveted blue, red and gold ribbons and roses. The celebration crowd, marking 152,362 in attendance for the week, hyped the performances by cheering for "their" choice. For the audiences enjoyment the Celebration had gone to the big screen, its faultless operation an awaited success. The most pleasurable class of the week was #117. A new class this year, the "Ultra-elite" Owner-Ameteur Riders on Walking Horses, Riders over 70 years, held the most genuine joy and smiles. The class provided an opportunity "for all to compete in their age groups," the announcer proclaimed, but the crowd's reaction was unbridled appreciation as Billie Sue Adkinson of Nashville made her victory pass atop RISING RHYTHM. Following are the results from the 13 World Grand Championship Classes held on Friday and Saturday evenings, August 30-31, at the Celebration Grounds in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Crowned World Grand Champion Walking Horse was OUT ON PAROLE. The PUSHER'S DOING TIME son is owned by Autumn Crest Farms/the Randall Baskin Family of Franklin, Tennessee and is trained by Steve Dunn.
