World Grand Champion in 2005
Main Power - 2005 W G CH

One look at Main Power’s resume and it becomes abundantly clear that he is a Champion in every sense of the term. A product of the legendary Harlinsdale Farms breeding program, his lineage is that of a champion. He is by Gold Power (a full brother to Coin’s Hard Cash) and out of Main Mans Spirit. His bloodlines combine the best of Pride, Ebony, Delight, and even Go Boy. He was bred for championship potential and has more than lived up to that potential.

During his three-year-old season, he excelled in both amateur and open competition. In 17 show ring appearances, Main Power walked away with 16 first place ties and 1 second place tie. By the close of 2002, Main Power had firmly established himself as a champion.
Focusing solely on open competition in 2003, Main Power was shown a total of seven times and had an undefeated four-year-old season. He and trainer Joe Cotten strolled down victory lane at the Mississippi State Charity Show, Gallatin, the Spring Fun Show, and Woodbury before storming the Big Oval and laying siege to the Four-Year-Old Stallions World Championship and the Four-Year-Old World Grand Championship. 2005 Tennessee Walking Horse World Grand Champion, Main Power and Joe Cotten
In his debut year in aged competition, Main Power continued down the path of success claiming three major stake wins before hitting the big oval in search of the ultimate prize. In a field that included several more experienced horses, Main Power walked his way to the 2004 Reserve World Grand Championship.

2005 was Main Power’s year. Like his four-year-old season, Main Power’s second season in aged competition was undefeated. He came into the Celebration primed and ready to show the world just how great he could be. He did not disappoint. The first Saturday evening he and Joe Cotten put together an absolutely beautiful performance to claim the division B blue. By the second Saturday, fans were in a frenzy to get their hands on anything Main Power related. And, that evening, he and Joe stormed onto the big oval ready to win it all. They did, and in fine fashion. His lineage, his record, his talent, and, perhaps most of all, his big heart make him more than worthy to wear the roses.

Saturday Night. Finally, it was the time that the almost 27,000 in attendance had been waiting for, class 165, The Tennessee Walking Horse World Grand Championship. Announcer Chip Walters called 10 entries to the ring and advised that a workout would be called. After the entries were worked both ways through all three gaits, they were called in and stripped for confirmation judging. Then, the competition really got hot.


When the work was complete, the team of Main Power and Joe Cotten, Aged Stallion, Div. B World Champion, to the winner's circle to capture the 2005 Tennessee Walking Horse World Grand Championship title for Holland, King and Kilgore of Arab, Decatur and Tuscaloosa, Ala. The duo preceded this win by completing an undefeated season and capturing titles at the National Trainers' Show, The Celebration's Spring Fun Show and Woodbury, Tenn.'s Lions Club Horse Show.  And, with a few presentations and a couple of pictures, 2005 Tennessee Walking Horse World Grand Champion Main Power and Joe Cotten made that ride with the roses that he will never forget and the 67th Annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration was in the record books.

So, what’s next for this champion? Well, he’ll be standing at stud with The Summit Stallions at Sand Creek Farm in Shelbyville, Tennessee. His owners are extremely excited to see what kind of contribution he’ll make to the gene pool of the Tennessee Walking Horse. With his bloodlines, disposition, show record, and heart, there’s little doubt that this World Grand Champion will find success in the breeding shed.
