Fox Creek Passes Away



The twenty-two year old World Champion and World Champion sire, Fox Creek, was humanely euthenized on the farm of Joe T. Smith in Harrodsburg, KY. Bred by Early Vaughn and Virginia Dulworth of Louisville, KY, "Fox" was by Grape Tree's Fox and out of the proven broodmare, Gold Star's Ballerina. Gold Star's Ballerina also was the dam of two other great breeding stallions, Nuryev by I'm A New Yorker bred by the Dulworths and Star Material by Talent Town bred by Ruxer Farm. Gold Star's Ballerina was by Stonewall's Main Event and out of the World's Champion Five-Gaited mare, Sultan's Gold Star by Supreme Sultan whose second dam was the Hall of Fame broodmare, April Sea.

In 1988, Fox Creek won the World Championship ASHA Weanling Futurity class at the KY State Fair and then went on to win the All American Weanling Open class in Indianapolis two weeks later. He was then sold to Dr. Gene Scott in California who changed his name to The Silver Fox G.S.. Dr. Scott then sold him back to Virginia Dulworth and her daughter Joan who then changed his name back to Fox Creek. Joe T. Smith and Joan then took over the breeding program of this wonderfully bred stallion.

Fox Creek is the sire of many World and National American Saddlebred champions including World's Champions....CH Haydon Fox, CH Fox De Jour, CH To Die For, Cookie's Delight, Cadillac Spirit, Weeping Willow, Mountjoy's Vixen and such other stellar stars as CH Recoup, Maximum Bob , Starheart's Whisper, Squash Creek, Fox's Jewell, On The Run, Magic Fox, Hot To Fox and many others.

As a broodmare sire Fox Creek's daughters have made quite a name for themselves....two of them being.....Fox It To Me, the dam of Mountjoy's Foxinate Me, the 2009 Bluegrass Futurity Weanling Limited Breeder's Reserve Champion, My Juanita, RWC in the Weanling Breeder's Stake at the KY State Fair and Mountjoy's Got Milk, Reserve West Virginia Weanling Champion, and Starheart's Whisper (Fox Fur) who is the dam of World Turning, winner at the All American Classic and the American Royal in 2009 and Midwest and River Ridge in 2010.
