Equine Obituary - Callaway’s Capital News

The noted sire, Callaway’s Capital News, passed away at the end of last year at Callaway Hills at the age of 28. A son of world’s grand champion CH Will Shriver and the CH Colonel Boyle daughter, Look Of Love (BHF), Capital News was a full brother to World’s Grand Champion Five-Gaited CH Callaway’s New Look and world’s champion Will’s Tribune, and a half brother to another champion gaited horse, CH Norton.

Capital News was shown lightly for one season, winning the Limit Five-Gaited class at Oklahoma City and top four at Midwest Charity and Lexington Junior League, all with Redd Crabtree. As a sire he was best known for the extremely popular world’s champion of champions CH Callaway’s Capitol Reporter and world’s champion Callaway’s Belfast as well as the champion gaited horse Callaway’s Case Closed and the three-gaited winner, turned walk and trot equitation star Callaway’s Gentleman’s Agreement, among others.

He was buried at Callaway Hills where other CH Will Shriver sons, including CH Caramac and Callaway’s Blue Norther are also laid to rest.


Callaway’s Capital News was a 1987 foal of the Broodmare Hall of Fame producer, Look Of Love.
