82 Appaloosa Journal October 2018 Bob Acomb's Hawk's Scat Away, multiple race winner and halter champion competing on the 5-Club Regional Circuit in the mid-60s, won the 350 yard race for 3-year-olds at the 1964 World Show and finished 2nd to Nava Star in the 400 yarder. The filly's best race how - ever might have been at the 1964 World Wide Derby. She finished 3rd in her trial heat behind Boogie Britches and Ipana Maid, still qualified for the Finals, but didn't place in the money. Chief L & R, owned by Nebraskans Enos and Glen Hanson, set the ApHC's first official world record for 660 yards with his win at the 1964 World Show. Also a winner at the 18th National Show in 1965 at Sacramento, the stallion raced primarily on California tracks during the mid-60s, producing 5 wins, 4 place and 3 show over 12 career starts, never finishing out of the money. Imboden's Kee-Yon after his 880 yard win at the 1964 World Show for South Dakota breeder Don Imboden and California owner Bob Heilman. Owned previ - ously by Colorado's Book Cliff Appaloosa Ranch and campaigned primarily as a halter/performance horse, the stallion placed 3rd in the huge halter class at the prestigious Denver National Stock Show and won the Western Pleasure Cham - pionship. Competing throughout the Intermountain West, Kee-Yon earned multi- ple wins in reining along with Reserve or Champion Performance Horse awards, including the Utah ApHC's award for 1962 High Point Performance Horse. Hoddy Star, winner by five lengths of the open 350 yard race at the 1964 World Show, is perhaps more remembered for his races at the ApHC's 1962 first World Wide Futurity. The gelding is picture here in a truly rare and historic photo, the running of the Futurity's very first trial heat in which he qualified for the Finals with a very close 2nd place to Kandy Anderson's Double Hancock. History repeated itself in that Final, with "Star" finishing 2nd once again to Anderson's now famous stallion and ending 1962 as the ApHC's Champion Running 2-year-old Gelding. 1963 added more awards, Champion Running 3-year-old Gelding and Champion Running Gelding, all ages. Nava Star winning at Clear Fork Downs in 1965. A year earlier at the 4th World Show in Sedalia, Missouri, Bill Hudlow's filly won two races, 400 yards for all ages over Hawk's Scat Away and outrunning world record holder and California entry Amigo's Bull Lee in the 350 yard race for 2-year-olds. Earlier in the season she won the highly competitive Oklahoma Futurity, finishing 2nd to Jim Wild's good filly Miss Hoop in the first running of the Texas Futurity.
