ApHC Proud to announce 2009 Hall of Fame Inductees

MOSCOW, Idaho—The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) is proud to announce the 2008 Hall of Fame induction of four pillars in the Appaloosa community; ApHC lifetime member Eddie A. Wood and Appaloosa stallion Bambi E. along with Racing Hall of Fame inductees, trainer Gilbert Keck and the Appaloosa mare Perfect Union.

Eddie A. Wood dedicated much of his life to the Appaloosa breed before passing on in late 2008. Eddie was deeply involved in nearly every aspect of the Appaloosa industry; not only was he a breeder and exhibitor, but also an Appaloosa auctioneer and show announcer. Eddie also had the distinct privilege of serving as a member of the ApHC Board of Directors, and served tirelessly at the regional level.

Bambi E. (Woodrow Shiek x P.V.F.’s Butterfly), a Colorado-bred stallion foaled in the spring of 1954, earned his induction into the Hall of Fame by siring 196 registered foals, producing some of the most impressive Appaloosas in the industry.

Gilbert “Buck” Keck made his name in the Appaloosa racing world as the esteemed trainer of many successful Appaloosa racehorses including the mare Spotted Sacajawea (Mr Spotted Bull x Silent Hope, AQHA) who earned more than $75,000 in one year.

Perfect Union (Bolodier, JC x Cricket’s Cliché) made her name in the Appaloosa racing industry by producing two highest all-time leading dams of money earners in Appaloosa racing, Perfect Union and Union Jet respectively.

Please join us June 21 in honoring these outstanding ambassadors of the Appaloosa breed at the Open/Non-Pro 2008 Year-end Banquet, held in conjunction with the 62nd National Appaloosa Show in Jackson, Mississippi. For additional information and tickets, please call the ApHC at 208-882-5578.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938 with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
