James Edward Martin For more than two de- cades James Edward "Jimmy" Martin trained horses on the Mercer County Horse Show grounds. Although he was best known for showing and training road horses and road ponies, through his 70-year career Martin had many top equitation riders, five-gaited winners and fine harness top performers. Martin schooled many top equitation riders and had success with five-gaited Mar- wood Little Fella, and the har- ness mare, Bluegrass Lady. In 1958, he won at Madison Sqiaare Garden with the har- ness horse, Mister G. Other horses during that period in- cluded the road pony Sneeker and the five-gaited horse Pat. Martin then trained horses on the Mercer County Fairgrounds for 22 years. He trained many horses during that span. including Bold Lad and Speed Zone. In the 1980s, he had Mer- cer County roadster success with Royal Flush, Macho Man, Smokin' and Delta Aire. In one year, he showed horse Delta Aire 96 times and earned 96 blues. James Edward Mar- tin passed away on Sept. 23, 2005. Family and friends attend- ing the Hall of Fame induction included daughter Mary Jane Bugg, her husband, Jeff, and son, John; son Neil, and Linda Gahwiler. Mary Jane's son, Lee, is in the army, stationed in California. Donna and Tom Moore raised horses on Knolland Farm m Illinois, building a stable of successful horses. Their success followed them when they moved to Kentucky in 1970. Donna Moore's success on her own came with CH Sea of Secre{s, a horse that she pur- chased for Irving and Marge Cowan's daughters. Otherhors- es for the Cowan family under Moore's leadership, training and care included Warchant, Summer Melody, Ahaerican Beauty and Wild Tempest. She later opened Donna Moore Stables in Versailles. Show stars through the years under her watch as trainer or owner include World Cham- pion Juvenile Gated Bella Mia, CH The Red Ferrari, CH O1- ivier, CH French Commander, Eternal Fire, High Rise March- es On, Another Melody and Country Music. Moore's long-time friend and associate, Don Brookshire, summed up Moore's contribu- tions. "When you can combine this daring with the great eye for a horse and the determina- tion to succeed, you have one successful business person. You have Donna Moore."
