Correction to American Saddlebred Museum Brochure

<?fontfamily><?param Times New Roman>
<?/fontfamily><?/center><?fontfamily><?param Times New Roman>An error has been made on a recent mailing sent out by the American Saddlebred Museum. The Collect, Preserve and Display Annual Campaign brochure sent to many Saddlebred supporters mistakenly stated that Jim B. Robertson won the Three-Gaited World’s Grand Championship with a three-year-old, Forest Song. In fact, Garland Bradshaw was the rider/trainer in 1966 when that historic event occurred. Mr. Bradshaw qualified her in the three-year-old class that year for Mr. and Mrs. I. D. Schwartz of Stone Gate Farm in Champaign, Ill., then sold her to Julianne Schmutz of Louisville, Ky., prior to her championship win. Robertson did win the championship with Forest Song in 1972.

“We deeply regret the inadvertent error,” says Executive Director of the Museum Tolley Graves. “Despite being proofed by at least six people, we did not catch the misstatement. Our apologies to all concerned, especially Joan Schwartz and the family of Garland Bradshaw.”
