HARRODSBURG - Jean McLean Davis and the late Frank Bradshaw were inducted into the Mercer County Fair & Horse Show Hall of Fame Saturday night.
Davis and Bradshaw were honored in a ceremony before Saturday's championship program at the Mercer County Fairgrounds, joining the hall established last year to honor those who have made significant contributions to the saddlebred industry and the Mercer show.
Davis is one of the most recognizable and successful saddlebred owners in Mercer County and in the entire industry. Her horses won scores of world championships from the 1940s through 1990, and she produced three five-gaited world champions.
The first was Oak Hill Chief, who won in 1943, 1945 and 1946. Yorktown won three straight championships from 1970-72, and one of his colts, Man on the Town, gave Davis two more titles in 1989-90.
