Double D Hosts Second Breakfast With Babies



 

For the second year, Dena and Dave Lopez of Double D Ranch, Versailles, Kentucky, hosted several hundred eager Saddlebred enthusiasts for their “Breakfast With Our Babies” on Saturday, July 16. The entire spectrum of Saddlebred world was there, from trainers to breeders to owners and those who simply appreciate beautiful horses. Attendees from New York to California and Texas, and all points in between, were seen.

 

Double D stands the impressive WC Sir William Robert for owner Tom Galbreath. His babies look to be as exquisite as their sire. Not only was the crowd entertained by the gorgeous foals, but Dena Lopez put on a striking exhibition with Sir William Robert under saddle after first leading him out for the crowd to ogle.

 

Jim Aikman, who never misses an opportunity to promote the All American Weanling Cup, was the first one at the farm’s gate Saturday morning intending to merely put up posters on every available surface. In fact, the gate had to be unlocked for him. Aikman, however, was pressed into impromptu emcee duties. In commenting on the event and horses, Aikman said, “The entire event was magnificent and the horses were simply elegant.” When Lopez "rode Robert, it made that barn shake,” he added.

 

Those in attendance said that anyone not there really missed something.
