Equine Obituary - The Paper Boy ERB





A 1993 son of The New York Times and O Heavenly Days (by Supreme Sultan), The Paper Boy ERB enjoyed a long and successful show ring career, spent mostly in the park division. Bred by Hoppy Bennett, the beautiful and athletic gelding got the best of both sides of his pedigree.

His show ring career began with Milo Jones, one of his first owners. He was then sold to Elaine Gregory and on to Armon Effinger before he found a home for life at Sherry Frankel’s SGF Winning Ways Farm, Tomball, TX.

Teamed with Frankel’s daughter, Lindsey Greenwald, The Paper Boy enjoyed four great seasons as a junior exhibitor three-gaited park campaigner, many times having to show against the amateurs as not all shows had junior exhibitor classes at that time. They earned titles from Chattanooga, Pin Oak, Big D, Dixie Jubilee, Oshkosh Charity, Blue Ridge Classic and the Wisconsin Futurity. In 2005, coming off the Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited Park Championship at Blue Ridge Classic, they took on the adults to finish third in the Amateur Three-Gaited Park Stallion/Gelding class at the World’s Championship Horse Show.

The team found just as much success in the amateur park division as they graduated from the junior exhibitor ranks. UPHA Almost Summer and Alabama Charity were among the successes before moving to a new division. With May Chadick riding, The Paper Boy ERB was the 2007 Three-Gaited Grand Champion at Big D before Lindsey was back in the irons taking top three at Lexington, good ribbons at Louisville in both the amateur over 15.2 stake and the amateur championship, and a sweep of the amateur division at Alabama Charity.

In 2009, Greenwald and The Paper Boy ERB returned to the park division to close out a storied career with three more years of wins and reserves from All American Classic, Pin Oak, Germantown, and the North Carolina State Fair.

For the past three years he lived the life of a king at SGF Winning Way Farms where he never let anyone forget it was his castle.
