William Shatner with colt, 1985

Posted on March 24, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Actor William Shatner held one of the colts out of Sultan’s Great Day on Dec. 28, 1985, at Donna Moore Stables in Woodford County. Shatner’s champion American Saddlebred stallion had about two dozen mares in foal that season. The actor, famous for his television and movie work as Captain James T. Kirk in “Star Trek” and the title role in TV’s “T.J. Hooker,” and his wife, Marcy, had just bought a farm in Woodford County. Both Shatners were competitive show horse riders and had started breeding show horses on their 360-acre Belle Reve Farm. Shatner turned 86 this week. Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
