Mourning The Loss of SpiceOLife Present Tense GCH



We are deeply saddened to report the passing of SpiceOLife Present Tense GCH on April 11, 2015 due to complications from colic. Foaled on May 6, 2002, the mighty chestnut stallion was sired by Arboria Noble Victor out of SpiceOLife Allura B. He was bred by Mary Geisler, owned by David James Walker, and trained throughout his life by Diane Conrady. He was a huge presence in their lives and was truly loved by all that knew him and cared for him.

Last year was a storybook year as he was crowned Park Harness World Grand Champion in what was his final show. In his lifetime he won 6 World Championships and 4 Reserve World Championships. “His true legacy lies in the love he had for his fans and friends - he truly belonged to the people and he loved performing for each and every one of them. He energized the crowd just as they did him. Being chosen 2014 People's Choice Horse of Year is one of the most treasured honors he earned. While we are devastated, we are looking forward to his offspring gracing the show ring for years to come.
 
“We appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, made even more difficult by the recent passing of his sire, Arboria Noble Victor. We would love to have copies of any candid pictures that anyone has on him. You can send them to dkcstables@gmail.com. Thank you to everyone who has already reached out and expressed their sympathies and support. We will get through this and will honor his memory for years to come.”
