Reference: Wilson Snip's Chance

Wilson Snip's Chance is the dam of the great Sun's Delight D.

On at least one occasion MERRY LEGS was bred to GREY LAD, whose sire was BRAMBLETT, by BUFORD, by BOONEíS GREY JOHN. From this cross MERRY LEGS foaled a filly colt named SNIP. SNIP was later bred to LAST CHANCE, and the resulting foal was SNIPíS CHANCE. After Albert Dementís death, SNIPíS CHANCE was purchased by W.S. ďAudieĒ Dean of Rutherford County, Tennessee. Dean bred the mare to MIDNIGHT SUN on several occasions but was not pleased with the results, therefore he decided to breed her to his own stallion, WILSON DEAN. From this cross came the famous ďfour sisters,Ē whose offspring made Walking Horse history. From these four mares came SUNíS HERO, JOHNNY MIDNIGHT, MIDNIGHT IKE, MACK KíS TRIGGER, DELIGHTíS CHANCE, DELIGHTíS SUNBEAM, DEANíS BOSS MAN, and the incomparable SUNíS DELIGHT D. the World Grand Champion Walking Horse in 1963. SUNíS DELIGHT and BUMIN AROUND are the only World Grand Champions to trace to MERRY LEGS through GREY JOHN blood. (p. 79.The Echo of Hoofbeats By Bob Womack)
