A remark on the name of Pride's
Dixie Allen Baker, the 4th dam of
Shocker's Sweetheart, was chosen to give part of her
name to Pride's Dutch Dixie. Dixie was the first TWH
breeding stock born on Dutch soil and of course the
first part of her name stems from her sire Pride
of '76, a direct son of the illustrious
Pride of Midnight H.F.
Dixie Allen Baker was a fine
broodmare, among her get was Sun's Night Cap by
Midnight Sun. In "Womack" we find
written: "Talk of the Town had no easy night of
it in defeating Sun's Night Cap in the gelding
class." Talk of the Town was the TWH World Grand
Champion in 1951, 1952 and 1953!
Apart from that, the find the
name "Dutch" for a mare and "Little Dutch" for her
daughter, in the early annals of the TWH breed,
giving us a historical connection to use "Dutch" in
the name of a Tennessee Walking Horse!
