Doyle is honored to auction a collection of jewelry from the Estate of Marion H. (“Bit”) Hutcheson II, of Happy Valley Farms, in Rossville, Georgia.  Ms. Hutcheson was enormously respected throughout the show horse community, devoting her life to the world-class American Saddlebred training and breeding facility that was started by her parents, the late John L and Marion Hutcheson.  

Ms. Hutcheson was remembered in the show ring herself on such prominent horses as CH Lilly Merrill, CH Precious Princess, CH Enlightening, CH In Reality and CH Allege.  Hutcheson later turned her focus to breeding – her most famous horse Merchant Prince, a World’s Champion in the Harness division, went on to sire many World’s Champions of his own before his death in 2013.
