Blue Blooded Bandit has been a perennial show ring favorite. This tall sleek stallion has been described as “one of the most beautiful Tennessee Walking Horse stallions standing today”. His beauty and grey color has made him a stand out among the experienced horse people as well as the newcomers to the horse world.
Bred and raised by renown horse breeder Karl Thompson. Sired by Mark Grandy a son of Mark of Carbon and out of a Silver Design mare. Bandit is a perfect example of a Mark of Carbon line breeding with influences on his paternal and maternal side. He was purchased by Gerald Pedigo when he was 6 months old. Gerald saw something in this colt that he knew would lead to great things. When he was ready he was placed in training at Allan Callaway and Sons Stables under the direction of John Allan Callaway. A horse of this size and talent could not be rushed so his show ring debut did not happen until he was ready.
As a three year old Bandit burst on to the show scene in 2004. His debut appearance was at the Walking Horse Trainers Show held in Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, TN. In a very competitive Three Year Old Classic class he emerged victorious while also defeating 4 past or future World Champions.
Highlights of his show career include being named Reserve World Champion Four Year Old Stallion in 2005 under the direction of John Allan Callaway. He was also named Reserve World Champion Classic Horse in 2016 with Sophia Borg in the irons. He may be best remembered by many show goers as the beautiful grey stake horse shown by Knox Blackburn. In addition to his under saddle achievements, Bandit has also shown his versatility by becoming an International Champion Model Stallion with Jeff Givens at the lead and continued to excel in model classes by becoming a Two Time TWHBEA World Versatility Model Champion with Keegan Meadows at the lead.
Blue Blooded Bandit is a great stallion choice for breeders wanting the refinement of the Prides Generator’s bloodline with the desirable movement of the old time greats such as Mark of Carbon. The chance for grey color is an added bonus. Consider Blue Blooded Bandit, he will “Steal Your Heart”!
