In three trips to the Adequan Select World Championship Show, Judy Jordan of Crossroads, Texas, has claimed three gold trophies.

On August 27, Judy earned her third, a Select world championship in weanling geldings with BPF Unbroken.

“I got him off of Clark Rassi,” Judy said. “He’s by James Kifer’s (JMK) Supernatural stud that he stands, and he’s out of a Time To Touch mare. I really like the Time To Touch mares. They’re very good broodmares.”

James, who lives in Hartselle, Alabama, was one of Judy’s fellow competitors at the show in Amarillo, and he finished third with his homebred sorrel gelding JMK What About Me.

“You don’t know what (babies are) going to do,” Judy said. “Everything’s new to them. And when you get them out in that pen, you’ve got all the people around them, the music’s playing, the judges are walking around them. Even though we practice that at home, it’s just a challenge out there, and they do want to act up. They feel good and they want to show their stuff. I was proud of my colt today. He behaved very well. I was very pleased with him.”

Judy was world champion in 2011 in yearling stallions with Secrets Of A Legend. In 2010, she won yearling stallions with A Zhivago.

BPF Unbroken is a sorrel gelding by JMK Supernatural-Irresistible Touch by Time To Touch.

“This one is special because I have not shown a baby for a long, long time,” Judy said. “I just started showing (again) about two years ago and it was 23 years (before that), so I bet it has been 30 years since I showed a baby. I was really nervous this year. They can be like children, just acting up and being silly. But I was so proud of him. Ted Turner did such an excellent job with him. The good Lord was on my shoulder today because he behaved very very well. I was blessed today. And it was fun.

“That’s what this show is all about, having a good time and going out there and doing your best. Even though we’re over 50. I’m over – no, I’m in the elderly group, but let me tell you one thing: It’s great to show here. I hope they don’t ever move it from Amarillo. It’s a fun place, and you’re with your peers, and that’s what makes it exciting.”

The Adequan Select World is the only world championship show exclusively for exhibitors age 50 and over.

“I’m coming back next year,” Judy said. “I’ve got two feet that still move, and I’ll be here as long as I can keep trucking.”
