Foaled 5/15/1939, Middlebury, VT.
Originally named Jefferson.
Bred by USDA, VT.
Registered Morgan progeny: 24 colts, 17 fillies (bay, brown, chestnut).
Sire line does not trace back to Justin Morgan, rather to Messenger as his sire, though registered Morgan, was a Saddlebred with only remote Morgan crosses and 4% of Morgan blood. The Morgan influence of Upwey King Benn comes through his strongly bred dam.
