Two time Accredited Louisiana Bred Champion Filly or Mare, Hope List, was euthanized due to the infirmities of old age in October. She was thirty-two years old.

Unraced as a Two-Year-Old, Hope List gave us a hint of her class with four wins as a Three-Year-Old. At Four she was stakes placed in both the Honeymoon Stakes and Sangue Handicap. As a Five-Year-Old, Hope List broke into the stakes winning class with wins in the Red Camelia Handicap and in the Louisiana Champions Day Turf, where she handily beat the boys. She was also second in the Coca Cola Classic and the Vinery Matchmaker Stakes and third in the Sangue Handicap. She saved her best for her Six-Year-Old season with four stakes wins that included finally capturing the Sangue Handicap in addition to winning the Furl Sail Handicap, Red Camelia Handicap and finishing the year with a win in the Louisiana Champions Day Ladies. As a Seven-Year-Old she won her third Red Camelia Handicap and was stakes placed in both the Sangue Handicap and the Honeymoon Stakes. In all, Hope List won twenty races from eighty-one starts with twelve seconds and thirteen thirds for earnings of $601,475 for Owner/Breeder Delmar Caldwell. She was voted Champion Filly Or Mare in both 1995 and 1996.

 As a broodmare, Hope List produced twelve foals, all of which raced, with nine winners and one stakes placed runner, Runaway From Itall.
