This team continued to prepare for what was anticipated to be an extremely competitive 4-year-old class on Sunday night at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. After a flawless exhibition in the big oval, the team of RM Kellett and Mr. True Blue both captured their first world titles being named 4-year-old World Champion Stallions. The job was not complete!  True Blue and RM captured the heart and support of the crowd and once again returned to the ring the following Friday night to compete in the 4-year-old World Grand Championships.  With the entire Spencer Benedict Stables team, fans and the Jacobs Family all sporting, MTSU I AM TRUE BLUE wrist band – they headed down the shoot into the big oval.
