2020 NRHA Markel Insurance Futurity Sales Increase Average Sale Prices Across the Board.

Uncertainty surrounded many aspects of the 2020 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Futurity, including the NRHA Markel Insurance Futurity Sales. With numerous COVID-19 constraints imposed on the event, including changing the location to Arena 6 and condensing the Sales to one day instead of three, everyone waited to see what the result would be. Would the new format work for buyers and sellers? What would the averages be? Would buyers show up?

Those worries were quickly assuaged. The buyers came and stayed from beginning to end – both in-person and online – and the bidding was vigorous. Although fewer horses were consigned in the Futurity Prospect Sale than in the previous year, the sale average was substantially higher. The 23 horses through the ring averaged $35,522 against the prior year’s $34,257, while the 16 horses sold averaged $37,235, obliterating 2019’s average of $33,086.

That momentum continued in the Select Yearling Sale, where the 108 horses through the ring averaged $22,856, and the 96 sold averaged $22,697. That was up from $20,919 and $21,322, respectively.

In the Marketplace Sale, 60 horses went through the ring, averaging $14,367, compared to $13,046 in 2019. With only three pass outs, the remaining 57 sold averaged $14,088, compared to the prior year’s $13,718.

New for 2020 was the Select Breeders Sale, which showcased 21 horses that averaged $27,571. The 19 that sold averaged $29,111.

The overall high seller was Im Gunna Shine, a 2010 stallion by Gunner out of Shiner LIght by Shining Spark purchased by Onofre Gomez from California for $95,000.

Angie Honeywell, NRHA Senior Manager of Futurity Sales was excited about the success of the sales. “Overall, they went really well and everyone seemed to embrace the changes.”

One of those changes, the new online sales option, provided real convenience for buyers unable to attend in person. “We had a lot of bidding online and actually sold 11 horses to online buyers.” 

“The atmosphere at this year’s sale was very upbeat,” noted NRHA Sale Committee member Jake Dahl. “I think that the one-day format this year was great. Everyone was in sale mode all day – either buying or selling. You saw more trainers there looking at yearlings and two-year-olds than I ever remember, and overall, there was a positive feel. Both buyers and sellers were upbeat.”

Dahl, who serves on the sale committee with Chairman Clint Haverty and members Casey Hinton, Fred Thomsson, Spence Bell, John Tague, and Rosanne Sternberg, added, “That vibe seemed to start during the Wednesday night preview and just stayed consistent throughout the sale.”

NRHA Chief Financial Officer John Foy commented, “2020 has been a challenge for many equine associations, including the NRHA. We had seen a reduction in some of our revenue line items and had to make expense adjustments to offset those. So, we were very hopeful that the futurity and sale would perform well not only for the association but for the industry as a whole.”

The hopes became reality when the North American Affiliate Championships at the Futurity had record entries and payouts and the show came very close to breaking the overall payout record set in 2012. “Plus, the total sold for the entire sale was the best it has been since 2007. Foy added, “It goes without saying that the NRHA Board and Management all very appreciative of everyone who participated in the sale and the show!”

Along with the upbeat tempo, there was a distinct poignancy during the sale, with many folks wearing masks with stickers that read “Mask up for Doug” in memory of the late Doug Carpenter, who passed away due to COVID-19 the week before the futurity began.

Carpenter, a wheel horse on the sale committee, had predicted the Sale’s success back in November, referencing the quality of the horses consigned. “I have never seen the depth of the horses we are selling – not only in how well-bred they are but also in their conformation. I think we are seeing the breeding coming together – throughout the industry people are breeding great mares to great stallions and it really shows,” he said.

Planning is already underway for the 2021 NRHA Markel Insurance Futurity Sales, and information will soon be available. To learn more, contact Angie Honeywell at ​Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein! or 405-946-7400.

9. 12. 20 - WRWS/FN - Pferdeversicherungen: Schutz für Pferdebesitzer.

Wie versichere ich mein Pferd? Allein die monatliche Unterhaltung eines Pferdes verschlingt viel Geld. Wenn das Tier dann plötzlich einen Schaden verursacht oder ein Klinikaufenthalt ansteht, treten schnell finanzielle Probleme auf. Im Vorfeld abgeschlossene Versicherungen können in solchen Fällen helfen und den eigenen „finanziellen Schaden“ begrenzen.
Aber im Versicherungsdschungel geht der Überblick schnell verloren: Welche Versicherungen sollten abgeschlossen werden, welche sind optional? Und worauf ist bei Abschlüssen zu achten?

Der Albtraum jedes Pferdebesitzers: Das Pferd reißt sich los, rennt auf die Straße und richtet dabei einen Schaden an. In solchen Fällen kommt die Tierhalterhaftpflichtversicherung zum Zuge.

In solchen Fällen kommt die Tierhalterhaftpflichtversicherung zum Zuge. (Foto ©: maxkolmeto - stock.adobe.com)

Tierhalterhaftpflicht ist unerlässlich.
Über die Notwendigkeit einiger Versicherungen lässt sich diskutieren, auf die Tierhalterhaftpflicht sollte jedoch keinesfalls verzichtet werden. Anders als für Hunde ist diese für Pferde zwar keine Pflicht, ein Muss ist sie für jeden privaten Pferdebesitzer dennoch. Denn ein Unfall ist schnell passiert: Das Pferd erschrickt sich, tritt aus und verletzt dabei eine Person. Gerade in Fällen, bei denen Menschen verletzt werden, entstehen hohe Schadenssummen. Wer haftet in solchen Situationen? Nun, der Tierhalter mit seinem kompletten privaten Vermögen. Im Regelfall ist es dabei sogar völlig unerheblich, ob ihn ein Verschulden trifft oder nicht.

Ein Beispiel, um die Bedeutung dieser Einstufung klarzustellen: Nachts geht ein Fremder auf die Weide. Das Pferd erschrickt sich und tritt der Person auf den Fuß, die sich diesen bricht – die Schadensersatzansprüche landen vollumfänglich beim Halter. „Genau in solchen Fällen greift die Tierhalterhaftpflicht“, sagt Versicherungsexperte Thoms Lehmann, der im Kreis Warendorf als Berater tätig ist. Er weiß: „Alle Versicherer übernehmen eine pauschale Summe für Personen-, Sach- und Vermögensschäden.“ Wichtig: Nur der fremde Schaden wird von der Versicherung erfasst. „Tritt das Pferd beim Ausladen gegen das eigene Auto, muss die Reparatur selbst bezahlt werden“, sagt Lehmann und fügt hinzu: „Ebenso können die Versicherer die Leistung bei grober Fahrlässigkeit schon mal verweigern“. Bei Vereinen und Gewerbebetrieben tritt übrigens die Betriebs- an die Stelle der Tierhalterhaftpflicht.

Reitbeteiligung absichern.
Pferdebesitzer mit Reitbeteiligung sollten darauf achten, dass das Fremdreiterrisiko im Rahmen der Tierhalterhaftpflicht mit abgesichert ist. Dieses Risiko musste früher meist extra abgeschlossen werden, gehört mittlerweile aber bei nahezu allen Versicherern zum Basis-Leistungsprogramm. Was ist darunter genau zu verstehen? Ein Fremdreiter kann ein Freund sein, der regelmäßig oder gelegentlich und unentgeltlich das Pferd reitet. Verursacht das Pferd nun einen Schaden an einer Sache, einem Dritten oder an dem Fremdreiter selbst, greift der Versicherungsschutz.

Kostenpunkt Tierarzt: Operationskostenversicherung für Pferde.
Das Pferd steht unruhig in der Box, versucht, sich selbst gegen den Bauch zu treten. Der Tierarzt bestätigt den Verdacht auf Kolik – es muss operiert werden. Wenige Tage später flattert die Rechnung ins Haus: ein mittlerer vierstelliger Betrag. Zweifelsohne kann die gesundheitliche Versorgung des Pferdes viel Geld verschlingen – manchmal vielleicht sogar Geld, das keineswegs vorhanden ist. Eine OP-Kostenversicherung kann da helfen. Allerdings unterscheidet sich das Leistungsspektrum von Versicherung zu Versicherung. Bei einigen Angeboten wird nur ein gewisser Satz der Gebührenordnung für Tierärzte (GOT) übernommen. Andere Anbieter haben eine Jahreshöchstentschädigung oder begrenzen die Leistungsübernahme bestimmter Operationen auf einen gewissen Betrag. Sinnvoll ist eine OP-Kostenversicherung allemal, denn auch wenn sie nicht vor allen Kosten schützt, sorgt sie für ein kleines finanzielles Polster. Eingriffe aufgrund von Koliken gehören bei der R+V beispielsweise zum Standardpaket und werden je nach Tarif mit einer Höchstsumme oder sogar unbegrenzt erstattet. 
Informationen zur Operationskostenversicherung der R+V hier.

Lebensversicherung fürs Pferd.
Neben der Tierhalter- sowie OP-Kostenversicherung gibt es noch eine dritte Versicherung, die zum Programm vieler Anbieter gehört: die Lebensversicherung für das Pferd. Auch bei dieser gibt es verschiedene Tarifoptionen. Die Basisausführung deckt meist den Tod durch einen Unfall ab. Die beitragsmäßig teuerste Variante beinhaltet oft eine Entschädigung bei anhaltender Erkrankung oder Verletzung, durch die das Pferd nicht mehr geritten werden kann.

Risiko Transport.
Die Pferdetransportversicherung ist ebenfalls eine Überlegung wert: Ein Unfall auf dem Weg von A nach B ist schließlich schnell passiert. Die meisten Anbieter sichern dann Schäden im Falle der Nottötung oder des Todes aufgrund des Unfalls ab. Ob man diese Versicherung dagegen dauerhaft benötigt, hängt von den eigenen Verhältnissen ab. Fährt man viel auf Turniere oder ist generell öfter mit dem Pferd auf dem Hänger unterwegs, empfiehlt sich die Tierlebenversicherung, da sie den Transport mit absichert. Steht das Pferd dagegen meist auf der heimischen Weide, gibt es die Möglichkeit, auf kurzfristige Transportversicherungen zurückzugreifen.

8. 12. 20 - WRWS/NRHA - Hilldale Farm übertrifft NRHA-Million-Dollar-Owner-Marke.

Hilldale Farm Passes NRHA Million Dollar Owner Milestone.

Oklahoma –
In the last 54 years of National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) history, only 11 owners have surpassed the million-dollar mark in earnings. Such a momentous achievement is only possible because of teamwork, dedication, and, of course, incredible horsepower, all of which Tammye Hutton’s Hilldale Farm has in spades.

In early November, Hilldale Farm unofficially became the Association’s twelfth million dollar owner, after Hutton’s daughter, Jessicah Keller, piloted Its Snippin Time (Shine Big Time x Snip O Satellite), to a third place finish in the Amateur Reining at the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) World Championship Show.

“This is really great. It’s nice that NRHA recognizes the owners along with the riders, breeders, sires, and dams,” Hutton shared. “I think it’s amazing that there is that much money in the sport we can win, and that it’s tracked. I never thought we would reach this milestone.”

Hutton and her family first became involved with reining in the late 1990s, and Hilldale Farm, still family-owned and operated, became official NRHA members in 1997.

“The first year we just did some local NRHA shows, and 2001 was when Jessicah hauled for the youth world titles,” Hutton recalled. “I remember the first significantly larger NRHA event we went to was the Illinois State Fair, and when we were done for the day we got a check. I thought, ‘Wow, we won $4,200! Holy smokes, we need to do this more!’”

The winning continued in 2002, when Keller and Nu Chex To Cash won World Championships in the Intermediate and Limited Open, and also took reserve World Championships in the Non Pro and Intermediate Non Pro. That same year, Nu Chex To Cash burst onto the scene as a major sire for Hilldale Farm, when his son Wimpys Little Step (out of Leolita Step), won the NRHA Futurity Open Championship.

In addition to Wimpys Little Step, Nu Chex To Cash sired several other major earners, including Lil Joe Cash (out of RS Lilly Starlight) and NRHA Million Dollar Sire Big Chex To Cash (out of Snip O Gun). Nu Chex To Cash is now an NRHA Three Million Dollar Sire, while Wimpys Little Step is an NRHA Eleven Million Dollar Sire.

Nu Chex To Cash, an NRHA Hall of Fame inductee in 2010, would also sire Hilldale Farm’s biggest money earner, Heavy Duty Chex, who won back-to-back National Reining Breeders Classic (NRBC) Non Pro Classic Championships with Hutton’s younger daughter Sarah Locker.

“Nu Chex [To Cash] is the one that really got us where we are,” Hutton said. “It was pretty amazing, and it just exploded our business.”

A year ago, Hilldale Farm’s blue hen mare, Snip O Gun, became only the third NRHA Million Dollar Dam during the NRHA Futurity. It was a fitting accomplishment, as the gorgeous bay mare was also inducted into the NRHA Hall of Fame as part of the 2019 class.

“There have been so many people who have helped us over the years, and gone above and beyond for me, my daughters, and our program,” she shared. “I know if I tried to list each one individually, I would accidently leave someone off the list.”

7. 12. 20 - WRWS/NRHA - 2020 NRHA FUTURITY & Adequan® NAAC.

Nov 26 – Dec 5
Oklahoma City, OK

Andrea Fappani Claims Level 4 Open Championship With All Bettss Are Off.
Ten days of intense, world-class competition culminated Saturday, December 6, with the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Futurity Open Finals. The NRHA Futurity, held at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, featured top horses and riders from across the globe.
 
Thanks to the Futurity Challenge donors, for the first time in NRHA history the 2020 Level (L) 4 Open Futurity Champion earned $250,000.
 
Prior to the start of the MS Diamonds TX L4 Open Finals, NRHA Million Dollar Sire Shiners Voodoo Dr, NRHA Million Dollar Dam Princess In Diamonds, NRHA Million Dollar Dam Snip O Gun and NRHA Million Dollar Owner Hilldale Farm were all honored.
 
With a precise and powerful performance, NRHA Six Million Dollar Rider Andrea Fappani rode All Bettss Are Off to a score of 225, which earned the prestigious championship and a quarter-million dollars.
 
Owned, bred and nominated by Arcese Quarter Horses USA, All Bettss Are Off is by NRHA Twelve Million Dollar Sire Gunner and out of Wimpys Little Chic. Fappani’s win tonight helped push Wimpys Little Chic to NRHA Million Dollar Dam status. Wimpys Little Chic won more than a half-million dollars in her career, including the NRHA Futurity, Derby, and National Reining Breeders Classic (NRBC).
Fappani dedicated his win to Eleuterio Arcese of Arcese Quarter Horses, saying, “Mr. Arcese said it would be a dream come true for him to win another one. He has been such a big player, and I really want to dedicate this to him. I’ve got a huge group of people who support me and I want to thank everybody.”
 
In a year rife with unpredictability, Fappani is thrilled to earn the fourth NRHA Open Futurity Championship of his career. “This year has been so crazy, but with the Futurity paying a record $250,000 for the first time, it’s just amazing to win it,” he said.
 
Having three horses out of his Scottsdale, Arizona-based program secure top 10 finishes in the Open Futurity was a proud achievement for Fappani, who added that he is grateful the Futurity was able to proceed without interruption.
 
“I enjoy all the other shows, but the young horses are why I wake up in the morning. To come to the Futurity and show is why I do what I do,” he said.
 
Fappani chose All Bettss Are Off from a group of prospects and said the horse stood out to him from the beginning.
 
“He’s a super-talented horse,” Fappani said. “He’s a little different than what I’m used to and I think that pushed me. He was so talented. I really had to push myself to adapt to him rather than ask him to adapt to me.”
 
Achieving scores of 220 in the preliminaries, 220.5 in the L4 Semi-Finals presented by Not Ruf At All and Tamarack Ranch, and finally a 225 in the MS Diamonds TX Finals, Fappani accomplished his goal of steadily building momentum toward winning the title.
 
He added that one aspect of shows being canceled in 2020 enabled him to have more time at home to ride and train.
 
“We had a great group of horses, but I think because we were home so much, we were able to prepare them really well. I told Tish, ‘I think I’m set up to do as good as I’ve ever done at the Futurity, so I think I’m just going to enjoy it,’” Fappani said.
 
The L4 Open Champion has the option to receive a one-year lease for a gooseneck trailer or a $10,000 credit toward a new trailer build from Kyle Zanetti Trailers, Official Trailer of the NRHA.
 
MS Diamonds TX, Official Diamond Jeweler of NRHA, presented the L4 Open Champion rider and the owner of the winning horse with custom-made handcrafted NRHA Futurity Open Championship rings. Each L4 Open finalist owner was presented a commemorative pin from MS Diamonds TX during last night’s rider introductions.
 
Fappani was awarded a saddle from Bob’s Custom Saddles with silver from Montana Silversmith’s, a Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, one stomach scope from Dr. Joe Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, and a garment bag by Brandt Blankets. 

Sebastian Petroll Wins L3 & L2 Open Championships Riding Dunit The Walla Way.
Sebastian Petroll, of Whitesboro, Texas, says he’s grateful to show a horse with as much try as Dunit The Walla Way. Petroll and the big-hearted filly won both the NRHA Futurity L3 and L2 Open Championships thanks to their score of 218.5. They also finished 12th in the Open L4 Finals for combined total earnings of $53,879. Owned and nominated by Ellen Lloyd Cummins, Dunit The Walla Way is by NRHA Three Million Dollar Sire Walla Walla Whiz and out of Dunit The Gunner Way.  
 
“We bought her mother several years ago,” Petroll said. “Her owner, Ellen Cummins, and I both showed her. It’s always fun when you are part of the whole process with a horse.” 
 
Petroll says Dunit The Walla Way is a horse that he can always depend on to perform.
 
“She has a heart that I don’t know how it fits into her little body,” he said. “She is so kind and she always wants to be with you. You can count on her 100 percent of the time. That’s what makes her so special; that paired with some obvious talent, but mentally she is just very special.”
 
Petroll’s plan for the preliminary round was to make a safe run that was enough to get to the Open L4 semi-finals, sponsored by Not Ruf At All & Tamarack Ranch, which he accomplished handily with a 219.5. His aim was similar for the semi-finals. “I knew if I could finish in the upper half that I should be fine, so I tried not to use up my horse. In the Finals I just tried to get as good of a run together as I could, and it worked.”
 
With all the uncertainly in 2020, Petroll says he is happy that the Futurity went on uninterrupted.
 
“It means everything to get to show here, not just for me personally, but it’s very important that we were able to have the event for the sake of the entire industry,” Petroll said.
 
He is also thankful for Dunit The Walla Way’s owner, Cummins, who has been a client with him for more than a decade.
 
“She’s just been amazing. She’s a pleasure to work with and very important to our program. We can only do this because of all our great owners,” Petroll said, adding, “Also, my wife Melanie, she rode this horse for big stretches during her 2-year-old year. Without her, I couldn’t do this.”
 
For the L3, Petroll received a Bob’s Custom Saddle sponsored by Glycoguard. For the L2, Petroll was presented with a Bob’s Custom Saddle sponsored by Arcese Quarter Horses. For both the L3 and L2 championship, Petroll won a Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, one stomach scope from Dr. Joe Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, and a garment bag by Brandt Blankets. 

Dallas Cunningham Wins L1 Open Co-Championship Riding RFR Voodoos Fuego.
NRHA Professional Dallas Cunningham, of Mitchell, South Dakota, rode RFR Voodoos Fuego to share top honors in the NRHA Futurity L1 Open, and tie for second in both L2 and L3 for a $24,348 payday. RFR Voodoos Fuego, by NRHA Million Dollar Sire Shiners Voodoo Dr out of Show N Tag, is owned and was nominated by Peter Smith.
 
Cunningham, who has been training professionally for the past decade, says RFR Voodoos Fuego impressed him from the start.
 
“He’s a super nice horse. We started him as a 2-year-old and right away I thought he was awesome, I felt he was really special,” Cunningham said. 
 
RFR Voodoos Fuego has been a pleasure for Cunningham to show all year and he had high hopes for the horse coming into the Futurity.
 
“I showed him at Vegas and won the Level 2 there,” Cunningham said. “I showed him in Memphis and he was really good. He was a 218 in the first round, then when I showed him in the Finals and he fell out of lead to be a 224 (in Memphis), but he was awesome there.”  
 
With 2020 being such an unpredictable year, Cunningham says he is thankful that the NRHA was able to produce the Futurity.
 
“I love this horse, so I was really looking forward to this show. I’m just dang glad we’re here,” he said, adding that he appreciates the help he gets from the many supporters who’ve assisted him to this point in his career.
 
“I went from being a bull riding, team roping, colt starter to doing this just by watching [Andrea] Fappani’s videos. I’ve got to thank that guy because he’s changed my career,” Cunningham laughed. “My wife, my customers, everybody is so supportive. I couldn’t do it without any of them.”
 
Cunningham was presented with a saddle from Bob’s Custom Saddles, a Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, one stomach scope from Dr. Joe Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, and a garment bag by Brandt Blankets.
 
Rodrigo Nieves Pilots Tagin Stiletto Chics to L1 Open Co-Championship.
Rodrigo Nieves has never made the finals at the NRHA Futurity, but he qualified all three of his entries back to compete on Saturday. To top off an already exciting day, Nieves piloted Tagin Stiletto Chics to a 217.5 to tie for the L1 Championship, and finish in a three-way tie for the L2 Reserve Championship.
 
“We came here, and the first two runs weren’t like we expected, but today’s run was really good, and we are grateful for that,” he shared. In the first go, he and Tagin Stilleto Chics marked a 216.5 but followed that with a 214 in the semi-finals for a 430.5 composite.
 
Tagin Stiletto Chics is by Gunners Special Nite, unofficially an NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire, and out of Stiletto Tag. “I like how honest he is. He is super honest and a special show horse,” Nieves said of the colt.
 
In addition to a paycheck of $8,959, Nieves was presented with a saddle from Bob’s Custom Saddles, a Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, one stomach scope from Dr. Joe Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, and a garment bag from Brandt Blankets.
 
Tagin Stilleto Chics is owned and nominated by Jennifer Marley. “Duane Latimer started to ride the horse, and then gave me the opportunity to ride him in Ardmore at the Futurity there,” Nieves said, referring to the Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity, where he and Tagin Stiletto Chics claimed the reserve title for Levels 1 and 2. “I thank Duane Latimer, the owner, the team at XCS Ranch, my wife and daughter, and my family in Uruguay.”
 
Although originally from Uruguay, Nieves spent 10 years in Brazil, where he got his start with reining horses before moving to the United States. He has worked for Duane Latimer for a year and a half.
 
In addition to Tagin Stiletto Chics, Nieves qualified Alphasushienterprize (owned by Fernando Botteon) and Theoneyourelookinfor (owned by Eduardo Salgado) back to the L1 Open Futurity Finals.
 
Shawn Flarida and Whizsicle Win NRHA Open Prime Time Futurity.
NRHA Six Million Dollar Rider Shawn Flarida, of Springfield, Ohio, rode Whizsicle to the top of the NRHA Open Futurity Prime Time championship with a 219.5 for owner Arcese Quarter Horses USA. Whizsicle, by SG Frozen Enterprize and out of Miss Whizzletown, was nominated by Jenny Ricotta. Flarida and Whizsicle also finished the L4 Finals in a tie for eighth, bringing total earnings to $30,932.
 
Flarida, age 51, remarked that tonight was the first time in 25 or more years that he’s been eligible to compete in a division other than the Open L4.
 
“I love to show,” Flarida said, “So having another avenue to win money is neat.”
 
Whizsicle was bred and started by Marco Ricotta and Flarida says the horse has been a pleasure to have in his program.
 
“This is just a really nice horse. I had a little bit of trouble kind of hooking up with him at the beginning of the year but he’s coming on and getting strong and finding his pace. He’s got such a great brain. He’s so pretty in the way he moves and lopes.”
 
In the Finals, Flarida’s focus was to avoid penalties and allow Whizsicle’s talent to shine.
 
“My goal was to try and eliminate any penalties on my part, avoid mistakes and let my horse be as good as he could be,” Flarida said. “I prepared him last night as good as I thought I could prepare him, and it all played out very well.”
 
Flarida thanked Whizsicle’s owner, Mr. Arcese, a man he credits for having owned several of the greatest horses Flarida has had the privilege to ride during his career— Gunnatrashya, Wimpys Little Chic (unofficially the NRHA’s newest Million Dollar Dam), and Walla Walla Whiz.
 
“He’s contributed so much to the sport for so many years,” Flarida said, adding that he would enjoy showing him at derbies in the future. “We’ll have to talk to Mr. Arcese and see what the plan is.”  
 
Flarida was awarded a saddle from Bob’s Custom Saddles with silver from Montana Silversmith’s, a Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, one stomach scope from Dr. Joe Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, and a garment bag by Brandt Blankets.

Carlee McCutcheon and The Wizster Win Adequan® NAAC Youth 14-18 Championship.
The Adequan® North American Affiliate Championships, held during the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Futurity, culminated Saturday afternoon with the Youth 14-18 competition.

Carlee McCutcheon and The Wizster, by NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire Gallo Del Cielo and out of Miss Whizard Jac, posted a 223 to top the NAAC Youth 14-18 and the ancillary Youth 14-18 for total earnings of $327. Owned by Turnabout Farm, Inc., The Wizster is a 2010 bay gelding with more than $207,000 in NRHA Lifetime Earnings (LTE).
 
“I started showing him in Tulsa at the NRBC. He’s super easy to show and I enjoy showing him so much. He’s a lot of fun to have,” McCutcheon said.
 
“He was really good today. He was with me every step. He knows his job and he tells me what to do more than I tell him,” McCutcheon said, adding, “My dad showed him as a derby horse and since he’s aged out I get to show him a little bit.”
 
The 15-year-old homeschooled equestrian balances her time between a heavy competition schedule showing hunter-jumpers for 10 months out of the year and showing reining horses at the highest level.
 
“I’d like to thank Debbie Brown for everything, she’s my trainer and she has gotten me to where I am. She’s taught me a lot. I definitely want to thank my parents, and my grandparents, Tim and Colleen McQuay, and my brother too—a little bit,” she laughed.      
The Adequan® NAAC Youth 14-18 Champion was awarded a Continental Saddlery Saddle, a Custom Montana Silversmith’s Trophy Buckle, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a Classic Equine Fleece Cooler, a Bluebonnet Feeds Gift Certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blanket Company, Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter, a champion’s vest from Adequan®, and a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket.

Mandy McCutcheon and Shining At Nite Win NRHA CINCH Non-Pro Futurity.
Great horses and riders were shining under the Friday-night lights of the Jim Norick Coliseum at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City. The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) CINCH Non Pro Futurity featured the top horses and riders from the preliminary round, and the Level (L)1 champion was decided in an exciting runoff.

To add to the CINCH Non Pro Finals pageantry, NRHA Million Dollar milestones were recognized by an in-arena ceremony prior to the start of the CINCH Non Pro Finals. NRHA’s newest Million Dollar Riders Cade McCutcheon, Matt Mills, Martin Muehlstaetter were presented with a special lapel pin courtesy of NRHA Corporate Partner MS Diamonds TX.
 

Mandy McCutcheon Wins NRHA CINCH Non-Pro Championship.
“Team” is a word you hear spoken a lot by showmen at the NRHA Futurity. For Mandy McCutcheon, who emerged with a winning score of 221.5 to top the CINCH Non Pro Finals, she attributes her incredible career in large part to her family and the team that stands behind her. The NRHA Two Million Dollar Rider from Aubrey, Texas, began showing reiners at age 12. She won her first NRHA Futurity in 1993 on Hollywoods Striker. The 2020 NRHA CINCH Non Pro Futurity marks at least her 10th NRHA Futurity crown.
 
McCutcheon rode her home-raised and trained gelding Shining At Nite, by Gunners Special Nite, unofficially the newest NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire, and out of A Shining Sidekick, to earn the coveted CINCH Non Pro payday of $60,000. Thanks to Futurity Challenge Donors this is the first year the Non Pro Futurity Champion has won a $60,000 paycheck. Bred by Tom McCutcheon and owned by Tom and Mandy McCutcheon, Shining At Nite was nominated by Mandy McCutcheon.
 
“We bred him and raised him,” McCutcheon said. “We had his mother off and on. I wish I still had his mother, but Green Valley Ranch has her now and she’s in very good hands.”
 
McCutcheon says Shining At Nite was bred to be a winner and shares the heart and propensity to win that his siblings have displayed. 
 
“This has just been an exceptional family of horses for us. [Shining At Nite] has a full brother that Carlee made the Level 4 Futurity Finals on when she was 12, and she took her brother’s record of being the youngest Level 4 finalist,” McCutcheon said. “There’s another one that Kathy Thompson used to show that’s just been a phenomenal show horse. The full siblings and now Shining At Nite have just been great, great horses.”
 
According to McCutcheon, Shining At Nite doesn’t resemble his siblings physically as much as he does mentally. 
 
“This one doesn’t look like any of the other ones, the other two are sorrel with white faces,” she said. “What they resemble is just having great brains. They’re great show horses. They just go in there and try every time to be a good show horse. He’s shown well every time I’ve shown him. One time he broke gait slowing down showing him, but he was just trying to be too good.”
 
She had high praise for Shining At Nite’s performance this evening.
 
“Every maneuver I asked him to do he just stayed hooked up,” McCutcheon said. “He was very good. Once he ran through the gate he just said, ‘Okay, whatever you want me to do.’”
 
And naturally, McCutcheon has a large and talented team of people behind her to thank for being a part of Shining At Nite’s journey to the winner’s circle.
 
“Debbie Brown trained him some as a 2-year-old, Trent Harvey trained him some, Cade trained him some, Tom trained him some. Everybody played a part in getting me where I am and that’s really been my whole career and I’m just really lucky to have such a great team around me all the time. My parents have been so supportive for my entire career,” she said.   
 
The CINCH Non Pro Champion has the option to receive a one year lease for a gooseneck trailer, or a $10,000 credit toward a new trailer build, courtesy of Kyle Zanetti Trailers, the Official Trailer of NRHA. 
 
The CINCH Non Pro Champion receives a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a custom Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, a Cold Saltwater Spa Treatment from Dr. Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital.
 
Tish Fappani and Joes Genes Win CINCH Non-Pro Level 3 Championship.
It was a gratifying night for Tish Fappani, who posted a crowd-pleasing 221 aboard Joes Genes to earn the CINCH Non Pro L3 championship and tie for reserve honors in the Non Pro. In all, Fappani earned $53,606 aboard the mare she owns with her husband, Andrea, an NRHA Six Million Dollar Rider. Joes Genes, by Lil Joe Cash and out of Electric Genes, has royal bloodlines. Her win helped unofficially push Lil Joe Cash above the NRHA Million Dollar Sire threshold, adding to the significance of the win. 

The Fappanis raised and trained Joes Genes at their Scottsdale, Arizona, training facility. Tish nominated Joes Genes to the Futurity program.

“She’s a special mare. We bred and raised her, and Andrea showed both her mom and dad,” Fappani said. “I climbed on her in April of her 2-year-old year. She’s just a cool mare. She’s got a huge stop. You would think the way she’s bred, knowing her mom, you would think she has some zing, and she does, but she is not a hot mare at all. She’s a blast.”

Fappani was proud to overcome her own nerves in the preliminary round to qualify for the finals where her mare’s full potential shone through.

“She was great in the prelims but I was really nervous,” she said. “Just knowing I had one that I could be up there with, I was a little nervous, but she just showed great for me.”

Fappani credits Joes Genes for making a rock-solid run in the Finals. “Tonight, I sent her in too fast and that hurt me, but other than that she was right there with me,” she said.  

The Fappanis hope to continue with Joes Genes’ genetics and plan to begin doing embryo transfer work so her derby schedule can go on uninterrupted. 

With Joes Genes’ win making it possible for her sire to gain NRHA Million Dollar Sire status, Tish was proud to have a part in Lil Joe Cash’s milestone. “It’s awesome to be a part of that. Lil Joe Cash has been a special horse – including when Andrea got him back for Run for a Million,” she said.

Expressing thanks for her family and the team behind her, Fappani says the win is even sweeter with her son Luca riding in the same Finals.

“I’m missing my son Jeremy who is in Arizona racing, but of course I thank Andrea and the whole gang. I’m thankful for Luca and for everyone, including Dr. John Newcomb and our amazing farriers,” she said.

Fappani was grateful not only to win a title at the NRHA Futurity but also happy that the event was able to happen.

“To show here is huge. It was huge we could hit fall futurities. Since the horse shows started rolling it’s been great. We try to follow rules, and it’s a different futurity feeling, but everyone is really happy to be showing.”

The CINCH Non Pro L3 Champion was awarded a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a custom Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, a Cold Saltwater Spa Treatment from Dr. Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital.
 
Jacob Zimmerman Wins CINCH Non-Pro Level 2 Championship on Rufin Up The Chics.
Jacob Zimmerman, of Springfield Missouri, teamed up with his horse Rufin Up The Chics for a 215.5 and the L2 Non Pro Championship worth $25,741.
 
Rufin Up The Chics is by Not Ruf At All out of Ms Playalotta Chic, and was nominated by his dad, Justin Zimmerman.
 
Zimmeran, who celebrated his 16th birthday a week prior to the NRHA Futurity, thanked Arno Honstetter for selling Rufin Up The Chics, a horse he calls “Elon,” to the Zimmerman family.

“I just got him two and a half weeks ago from Arno Honstetter,” Zimmerman said. “My grandpa Vaughn Zimmerman, and my father, Justin Zimmerman, own him. Arno didn’t know if he was ready to show in the Open, so I got him. The situation worked out great for me.”

Zimmerman had never shown Rufin Up The Chics prior to the NRHA Futurity.
“I just rode him as comfortably as I could and hoped for the best,” he said. “I think we’re going to keep him, and if we do, I’m planning to show him next year and the year after that. We will just have to see.”

Zimmerman was proud of how the horse stepped up in a high-pressure situation in the Finals.

“Today I marked a 215.5. He was really good. I couldn’t have asked him to be much better,” he said. “He listened to me and did everything I asked. He could have turned a little bigger, but overall he was very good.” 

Zimmerman thanked his trainer, Bobby Avila, Jr., as well as his family and Arno Honstetter for having the horse well trained. “I thank my family the most, my dad Justin, my grandfather Vaughn, and my mom Leah. They helped me get here,” he said.  

The CINCH Non Pro L2 Champion was awarded a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a custom Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, a Cold Saltwater Spa Treatment from Dr. Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital.
 
Hannah Mitchell and Stars And Stripes Win CINCH Non-Pro L1 Futurity Championship.
Hannah Mitchell had never competed in a run-off before, but that all changed on Friday night when, at the end of the CINCH Non-Pro Futurity Finals, she found herself part of a three-way tie for the L1 Championship. She and her horse, Stars And Stripes, entered the Jim Norick Coliseum one last time to battle it out for the title.
 
“I wasn’t too nervous about it. It was nice to go last because I knew what score we had to have, but it was harder because she (Stars And Stripes) was expecting a lot more. She wasn’t as good in the run-off as her first run, but she still tried her heart out,” Mitchell shared.
 
In the end, it was enough, as the pair were victorious. Not only did Mitchell and Stars And Stripes win the L1 Championship, they tied for third in the L2, tied for fifth in L3, and tied for 12th in L4 for earnings of $27,832. “I am so, so thrilled and so happy because about two months ago we didn’t think we would get to bring this mare here because she had an injury. I am just thankful to be here,” she said.
 
In addition to the big paycheck, Mitchell was also presented with a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a Montana Silversmiths buckle, Anderson Bean boots, product from Classic Equine, gift certificates from Platinum Performance and Bluebonnet Feed, a stomach scope from Dr. Joe Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital, a garment bag from Brandt Blanket, and a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery gift certificate.
 
Mitchell and Stars And Stripes marked a 217.5 in the preliminary round. “It was shocking to me, honestly. I thought she had done pretty well but then they announced that score. It was amazing,” she said. By Star Spangled Whiz out of Chick N Squirt, Stars And Stripes was nominated by Hannah’s father Stephen Mitchell, who purchased the filly from Hannah’s aunt and uncle, Shawn and Shelley Gann.
 
“We bought her as a yearling. We sent her to Bobby Avila and he did two or three months with her as a two-year-old, and then my dad and I took her from there. That’s what makes her so special, because we did all the training on her ourselves,” she said.

For Mitchell, just being able to compete at the NRHA Futurity was an accomplishment. In addition to her horse’s injury, the pandemic put the entire show year in jeopardy. “I didn’t think we’d have much of a year. I think it’s great that NRHA still put this show on. Whatever we had to do to have a show, we were happy to do it, and it’s great to be here,” she said.
 
Mitchell, who recently graduated from Oklahoma State University, was quick to thank the people closest to her. “I thank God for allowing me and my family to be here and for keeping everyone safe here at the show. I thank my parents for allowing me to show this mare and pay for all the things to get here, and my little brother for all his support. I thank my aunt and uncle, Gabriel Borges, who helps us a lot, and Bobby Avila for starting her,” she said.
 
Mike Weber Wins CINCH Non-Pro Futurity Prime Time on Mifchievious.
It’s been a dream for Mike Weber, who’s been showing reining horses since the 1970s, to win at the Futurity. “I even remember watching it in Ohio when I was a kid,” he shared. On Friday night, Weber took home the Prime Time Futurity Championship on his horse Mifchievious.
 
In addition to the Prime Time title, Weber and Mifchievious also earned fifth in the Non Pro L1, winning more than $4,200. They also won a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a Montana Silversmiths buckle, Anderson Bean boots, product from Classic Equine, gift certificates from Platinum Performance and Bluebonnet Feed, a stomach scope from Dr. Joe Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital, a garment bag from Brandt Blanket, and a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery gift certificate.
 
The pair had some tough luck in the preliminary round. Although they qualified for the Prime Time Finals, it took a good finish in the Consolation round to earn a spot in Friday’s finals. “We made it back for the Level 1. That second chance was best for me. This mare is just now coming on, and since we do the training mostly ourselves, it’s sometimes better to show more when it’s a longer event,” he shared.
 
Weber purchased Mifchievious, by ARC Gunnabeabigstar out of Mifilady, from his friend Kenneth Krebs, who nominated the mare. “Kenny owns her dam, and this is the fourth one we’ve had out of that mare. We’ve always thought she was special,” he said. “Joe Schmidt had her for a while and helped me with her, and my friend Cutter Cook trained her and took time with her as a baby.”
 
Hailing from Kentucky, Weber admitted he was a bit reluctant to travel to Oklahoma City for the Futurity. “However, we are such supporters of reining. My wife is the president of the Kentucky Reining Horse Association, and we knew that if we didn’t step up and support this event, and it didn’t make it, it would be because people didn’t make the effort,” he said. “So we’ve had our mask on, practiced social distancing, washed our hands, and stayed away from anyone who was sick. I think this year is even more special because we will always remember what a challenge it was not only to get here, but to stay here.”
 
Weber added, “I thank my wife Nez, as well as Kenny, Cutter, and everyone who has helped us. It’s a group effort. No one wins here by themselves.”

Lane Colston and Lil Ruf Whizkey Wins the CINCH Non-Pro Youth Futurity.
Seventeen-year-old Ronny “Lane” Colston, of Frankfurt, Kentucky, rode Lil Ruf Whizkey to the top of the CINCH Non Pro Youth Futurity thanks to an impressive 221, the second highest score of the day. It was a great day for Colston who also split reserve honors in the CINCH Level 4 Non Pro for total earnings of $34,651.
 
Lil Ruf Whizkey is by NRHA Million Dollar Sire Whizkey N Diamonds and out of Lil Ruf Startime. The 2017 gelding was nominated by Terry Leffew and is owned by Kevin Colston.
 
“We bought him in July, I actually didn’t try him out before we bought him,” Colston said. “Cade [McCutcheon] tried him for us. He said, ‘You have to have this horse, you need this horse, you can do great on him.’”
 
The Colston’s decision to purchase began paying off almost immediately.
 
“I didn’t ride him until about a week before the first time I showed him,” Colston said. “I rode him for a whole week, and we got along great. Then I showed him the first time and I was a 218. I showed him again before the Futurity and I was a 220.5. In the go round in the Futurity I almost had a big bobble, but I saved myself and I was a 216. I would like to have had a better run, but it was enough to make the Finals.”
 
Colston says Lil Ruff Whizkey didn’t warm up perfectly, but that didn’t upend their confidence as a team in the showpen.
 
“I just told myself, ‘Alright, let’s rethink it, and let’s go.’ I went in the pen and he stopped so big for me. He just locked in with me. He’s a show horse. As soon as we went in there, he was ready and that says a lot about a horse. He’s a great horse,” Colston said, adding that it was his nerves that almost got the better of him in the preliminaries. “In the first go I was really nervous and I think that’s why I almost made a big mistake because I knew how good of a horse he was. I decided when I was warming up, let’s go do our best, we’re already here, let’s just go for it.”
 
Colston enjoys owning and showing the outstanding young reining horse and hopes to continue their winning journey.
 
“I ride with Tom and Mandy McCutcheon and they all help me—Tom, Cade, Tim. Mainly Cade rides him [Lil Ruff Whizkey], but I was having a little trouble starting my turns and that’s Tim’s specialty, so he was riding him for a little while. They all know so much about horses. I learn from all of them, they know which way to point me. Everyone at the ranch is so helpful all the time so we enjoy being with that team.”
 
Colston says Lil Ruff Whizkey will get a much-deserved break and then he plans to show at the NRBC next year, if not sooner.
 
“I appreciate the McCutcheon’s so much,” Colston said. “I want to thank my horse. He’s such a good horse, he’s amazing, I enjoy every minute of riding him. He’s so easy. We just click really well. Most of all I’d like to thank my parents, Amy and Kevin Colston. They support me. I love doing this and they are just so excited, maybe even more than I am, both of them are here and it’s so much fun.”       
 
The Non Pro Youth Champion was awarded a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a custom Montana Silversmith’s trophy buckle, Anderson Bean boots, Classic Equine product, a Platinum Performance gift certificate, Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, a SmartPak gift card, a Shorty’s Caboy Hattery certificate, a Cold Saltwater Spa Treatment from Dr. Carter and Oklahoma Equine Hospital.
 
The NRHA greatly appreciates all NRHA Corporate Partners and Event Sponsors that make it possible to award the first-class prizes presented at the NRHA Futurity.

Madison Rafacz Wins Adequan® NAAC Youth 13 & Under on Whizenboonsmal.


Madison Rafacz and Whizenboonsmal have teamed up for numerous titles in the Adequan® Arena during NRHA events, and on Friday night, added yet another line to their resume with the NAAC Youth 13 & Under championship. Rafacz and the 8-year-old gelding marked a 218 to also win the ancillary division.

“I showed him on Tuesday in the Non Pro (NAAC) and he was really good for me and we marked a 222,” Rafacz shared. ‘I almost felt bad showing him again after he did so well, but today he came in and was just as good as before. My goal for the day was to be penalty free and have a pretty run. He was there for me, and I’m just really happy with him.”

Whizenboonsmal is by Peptoleap out of She Whiz A Star. “I have had him over three years and accomplished so much on him. He’s a very special horse and has made a lot of my dreams come true,” she shared. “I’ll keep him as long as I can. He’s going to be around for a while.”

Madison’s parents, Mark and Shannon Rafacz, own and operate MR Reiners. “It’s been a really good week for our barn. We’ve had a lot of people do well and had a lot of accomplishments,” she said. “I thank my parents especially for all their help. I thank Bud Lyon for helping and supporting me over the last few months, and the entire MR Reiners team.”

The Youth Champion was awarded a Continental Saddlery Saddle, a Custom Montana Silversmith’s Trophy Buckle, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a Classic Equine Fleece Cooler, a Bluebonnet Feeds Gift Certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter, a champion’s vest from Adequan®, which will be presented tomorrow in the Jim Norick Coliseum, and a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket.

 
Colt Mitchell wins 10 & Under Short Stirrup Championship on Playgun Chic Olena.

Colt Mitchell, of Cuba, Missouri, claimed the Championship in the 10 & Under Short Stirrup division for the third consecutive year riding Playgun Chic Olena, aka “Wes.” Mitchell’s presentation of Playgun Chic Olena’s maneuvers was rewarded by the judges with a 225 for earnings of $60. 

The 2005 gelding, by NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire Smart Chic Olena and out of Mamas Packin, has been part of the Mitchell family since he was 3 or 4 years old.
“He’s so awesome to be around, he’s the nicest horse we have,” Mitchell said. “He’s my favorite to ride, he’s perfect for me. He’s rock-solid in all the maneuvers. I can’t wait to ride him every day. I love him.”

At home, Mitchell enjoys spending time keeping Wes legged up and prepared to go win at the shows. “I love reining, it’s my favorite thing to do,” Mitchell explained.
A seasoned Short Stirrup competitor, Mitchell says he had some nerves to overcome today.

“I was pretty nervous before the run,” Mitchell admitted. “It felt amazing. I can’t complain one bit, he was perfect in all respects. Like I said, he’s good in all the maneuvers. I went in, loped off, I think I heard that I plus-oned my circles, he ran the circles perfectly, his spins were great. My first stop was very good for that horse.”

Reflecting on the final Short Stirrup run of his youth career, Mitchell said, “You know, it felt a little like I really don’t want to leave, but I went out with a bang so I’m as happy as I can be.”

Mitchell, who attends school in Cuba where he plays baseball in addition to riding reiners, was happy that his family was able to watch him today.

“First of all, I would like to thank the good Lord above for keeping me safe, me and my whole family. My whole family helps me. My sister Hannah is showing in the non pro finals today and for the past three years she’s shown at the exact same time as me, so nobody was here to watch me, but this year they got to watch me,” he said.

Mitchell was awarded a weekender duffle from Classic Equine, an Adequan® bucket and bucket strap, a certificate for Anderson Bean Boots, a Classic Equine top load hay bag, a “Dun Gotta Gun” Breyer Horse donated by Pearce, a CINCH Jeans gift certificate, John Deere gloves, and Classic Equine polo wraps and spur straps.
 
Abigail Dooley took the Short Stirrup reserve title on Top Haida with a 223. Top Haida, by NRHA Twelve Million Dollar Sire Topsail Whiz out of Haida Million, is owned by Lon Kraft. Dooley won a weekender duffle from Classic Equine, an Adequan® bucket and bucket strap, a certificate for Anderson Bean Boots, a Classic Equine top load hay bag, a “Dun Gotta Gun” Breyer Horse donated by Pearce, a CINCH Jeans gift certificate, John Deere gloves, and Classic Equine polo wraps and spur straps.

Adequan® NAAC Rookie Contenders Shine at NRHA Futurity.
The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Futurity also includes the Adequan® North American Affiliate Championships (NAAC), which features horses and riders from across North America competing for big money, prizes, and bragging rights.

On Thursday, Rookie riders took over the Adequan® Arena, with many competing for the title of Toyon Ranch Rookie of the Year.

In addition to incredible prizes from NRHA Corporate Partners, the champion of each of the 17 NAAC classes will be presented an Adequan® Championship vest the following day in the Jim Norick Coliseum as a show of support for these successful affiliate riders.

Logan Lindberg Ties for Toyon Ranch NAAC Rookie of the Year & NAAC Rookie Level 2 Win.
Seventeen-year-old Logan Lindberg, Lafayette, California, rode Custom Banjo, by Banjo Whiz out of Custom Bobbie, to share top honors in the Toyon Ranch Rookie of the Year with a score of 218. Owned by Megan Lindberg, Custom Banjo is a 2008 bay gelding with more than $102,000 in NRHA Lifetime Earnings (LTE) to his credit. Lindberg tied for the win in the NAAC Rookie Level 2 with Allison Rae Thorson.
 
“He’s a great horse, he’s my mom’s horse and I’m fortunate enough to get to ride him,” Lindberg said. “He does the job he’s supposed to do and gets me there every time. I showed him for the first time about two years ago, just at a smaller weekend show.”
 
Lindberg says Custom Banjo excels at every reining maneuver, but he added that the horse stops no matter what, which makes him a thrill to show.
 
An avid team roper and student at Campolindo High School in Moraga, Lindberg says he quit playing football in order to focus more on riding.
 
Lindberg is grateful to have the support of his parents, saying, “I owe it all to my parents. Also, Liz Rammerstorfer, she’s helped me here in Oklahoma and at home as well. I’m really grateful to have her help, and for my parents too.”
 
The NAAC co-champions were each awarded a Continental Saddlery Saddle, a custom Montana Silversmiths trophy buckle, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, Classic Equine ice boots, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter, and a champion’s jacket from Platinum Performance.

Allison Thorson Ties for Toyon Ranch Rookie of the Year and NAAC Rookie 2 Championship on Smart Cowboy Whiz.
The Adequan® Arena at Oklahoma Fair Park has been good to Allison Thorson and her horse Smart Cowboy Whiz. Just a month after purchasing the gelding in 2019, Thorson piloted him to wins at the NRHA Derby presented by Markel Insurance in the Green Reiner classes. At the 2020 NRHA Derby presented by Markel Insurance, the pair teamed up again to win the high-point championships of Rookie Levels 1 and 2. Then, on Thursday night at the NRHA Futurity & Adequan® NAAC, the duo marked a 218 to tie for the win of the Toyon Ranch Rookie of the Year and NAAC Rookie Level 2.

“It’s pretty neat. Oklahoma City and the Adequan® are really lucky for us,” Thorson said. “His spins were awesome today. It was probably the best we’ve turned and spun. Our stops have been hit or miss because sometimes we’re really on it, and sometimes it feels like I’m on another planet. Today we were together every single step, and we were penalty free.”

Smart Cowboy Whiz is by Who Whiz It and out of Little Smart Jac. “I love him so much. He’s good everywhere, and then he’s pretty, too. If he was a human, I don’t know that I would want to date him because he’d be too proud of himself,” Thorson said with a laugh. 

 “It’s very hard to get to this point. It’s not easy, and it’s only possible because of a big team of people supporting you every day. I have a great group of friends and family supporting me each and every day,” she said. “I also thank Craig and Ginger Schmersal and their team. I live in Tennessee, and my horse is with them. They have a first-class program from top to bottom, and they really push me to be a better rider.”

The NAAC co-champions were awarded a Continental Saddlery Saddle, a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a custom Montana Silversmiths trophy buckle, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, a Classic Equine fleece cooler, and Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter.

Anticipation mounts as a field of more than 300 entries has been narrowed down to the cream of the crop that will compete in the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Open Futurity Finals on Saturday, December 5.

Competition began last Thursday, with the top 75 from each division advancing to the semi-finals. The Level (L)4 Open semi-finals, presented by Not Ruf At All and Tamarack Ranch, today featured the top 75 L4 horses, plus ties, following the preliminary round. The 30 competitors with the highest composite scores in Levels 1-4, plus top 10 in Prime Time, will advance to the Finals.

For the first time in NRHA history, the L4 Open Futurity Champion will win a quarter-million dollars during the MS Diamonds TX L4 Open Finals. This year, the NRHA Futurity boasts a record $1,033,530 in added money for the Open and CINCH Non Pro Futurity combined, thanks in large part to NRHA Futurity Challenge sponsors and the NRHA nomination program.
 
Guaranteeing his spot in the L4 Finals and topping that division with a composite of 448 was NRHA Million Dollar Rider Brian Bell and Gunnabebigtime. Bell and Gunnabebigtime marked a 223.5 in the first round and a 224.5 in the semi-finals.

Cinder Lakes Ranch nominated Trendsettter.
 
Arno Hostetter held on to the top spot in the L2 Open on Blue Inferno, owned by Story Book Stables.

Trapper Lowndes and The Voodoo That U Do Win NRHA Honorable Mention Futurity.
Riders not advancing to the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Futurity Finals had the option of entering the $1,000-added Honorable Mention Futurity. Emerging as champion was The Voodoo That U Do ridden by Trapper Lowndes, of Whitesboro, Texas, for owner Sally Wendy Padey. The pair marked a 219 to top the class for $427.

“We bought her as a 2-year-old from Trevor Dare up at Silver Spurs Equine. We’ve had her this past year and she’s been a really fun horse. We’d like to continue on and show her as a derby horse, try to win some more money on her and make her a mama pretty soon,” Lowndes said.

The Voodoo That U Do, by NRHA Million Dollar Sire Shiners Voodoo Dr out of Starlet Revolution, was nominated by Jeanine Stovall.  

Lowndes says his goal in the Honorable Mention Futurity was to relax and make a penalty-free run, which he was confident would allow the mare’s incredible ability to shine.

“I really tried not to try,” Lowndes said. “We had a lot of penalties over in the big pen earlier this week, so I just tried to let her be what she is and she’s a really, really nice horse. The more I stay out of the way, the better she is.”

Lowndes, who has shown more reined cow horses lately, expressed appreciation for his family as well as a few horsemen in the reining world who’ve helped him with The Voodoo That U Do.

“I have the world’s best owner, Miss Sally, who has been wonderful to us and very trusting and provided such a nice horse. My family, my wife. There have been several horsemen help me through the year with her; I’ve stepped away from the reining for almost eight years, so it’s been really important that those guys have been so gracious to come forward and help me.”

Reserve in the Honorable Mention Futurity was Sharee Schwartzenberger and Spooks Matrix with a 215.5. Spooks Matrix, by Smart Spook out of Mates Matrix, is owned by Inga Guernsey and was nominated by Adh-Mor Ranch.

Riders Advance from CINCH Non Pro Futurity Consolation
Although the preliminary round of the NRHA CINCH Non Pro Futurity concluded Tuesday evening, the Consolation round, which took place in Adequan® Arena on Wednesday, December 2, provided a second chance to those who missed initial qualification. In the Consolation, the top five, including ties, from each of the four Levels move on to Friday’s competition.

Kim Muehlstaetter and Gunnaoutdunya topped the CINCH Level (L)4 Non Pro Consolation with a 218. Gunnaoutdunya, owned by Kim L. and Martin Muehlstaetter, is by Gunnatrashya and out of Stop Little Sister. Gunnaoutdunya was nominated by Arcese Quarter Horses USA.
 
James Morgan, DVM, guided his horse Trash Talking Tim to the high score of the L3 Non Pro with a 215. Trash Talking Tim is sired by Gunnatrashya and out of Awhiz Called Wanda, and was nominated by James Morgan, DVM.
 
Finishing with the high score in the L2 Non Pro was Jacob Zimmerman and Rufin Up The Chics, owned and nominated by Justin Zimmerman, with a 214.5. Rufin Up The Chics is by Not Ruf At All and out of Ms Playalotta Chic.

Marking the high score of the L1 Non Pro was Courtney Brooke Battison and her horse Marvelous Sixtysix with a 212.5. The nominator of Marvelous Sixtysix was Janna Imrie.

The cutoff scores to advance to the CINCH Non Pro Futurity Finals on Friday, December 4 from the Consolation were 214.5 for the L4, 210.5 for the L3, 209 for the L2, and 210.5 for the L1.

Adequan® NAAC Non-Pro Competitors Take Centerstage.
On Tuesday, which proved to be a full day of competition at the Adequan® North American Affiliate Championships (NAAC), 177 exhibitors took aim at prestigious titles in a slate of six different Non-Pro divisions.

In addition to incredible prizes from NRHA Corporate Partners, the champion of each of the 17 NAAC classes will be presented an Adequan® Championship vest the following day in the Jim Norick Coliseum as a show of support for these successful affiliate riders.
 
Awards through 10th place are presented in all NAAC divisions, so those riders who haven't picked up prizes yet are reminded to stop by the awards room.

Allana “Alli” Vernon Wins Adequan® NAAC Non-Pro.
Tuesday was fortuitous for Ashland, Wisconsin non professional Alli Vernon who earned the NAAC Non Pro title in Adequan® arena. Vernon teamed up with her family’s home-raised 2015 gelding Gunnersrufride for an impressive 226 to earn $4,967.
 
Gunnersrufride, owned and bred by White River Ag Products, Inc., is by Gunners Special Nite, unofficially the NRHA’s newest Four Million Dollar Sire, and out of Lil Ruf Showgirl.  
 
Making the victory particularly sweet for Vernon is the fact that more than a decade ago she showed Gunnersrufride’s dam here in Oklahoma City.
 
“I actually showed this guy’s mom here 11 years ago when I was a youth rider,” she said. “He was born and raised on our farm. Tom McCutcheon started him and rode him as a 3- and 4-year-old, then I took him over this year. It’s been a really fun year with him so far. I’m really excited for next year.”
 
Vernon and Gunnersrufride achieved a smooth enough ride to be rewarded with excellent scores from the judges. 
 
“He can turn really big and he can circle good. We’d been having a little trouble getting stopped this week, but he stopped really good today, so it was all in all a really fun ride,” Vernon said.
 
“I have a lot of people to thank, including Tom McCutcheon who started him. He did an amazing job on him. I want to thank my dad, Richard Vernon, and my uncles for breeding our mare and making this awesome baby. We’ve had some great luck with our babies this year. My trainers, Tanner and Christina Boyes, they took him over after Tom and got him more set to be a non-pro horse,” Vernon added.    
 
The NAAC Non-Pro champion was awarded a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a custom Montana Silversmiths trophy buckle, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, a Classic Equine fleece cooler, and Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter.

Ruben Pacheco Cuevas Wins Adequan® NAAC Int. Non Pro on Sofisat.
With an impressive score of 223, Ruben Pacheco Cuevas and Sofisat clinched the Adequan® NAAC Intermediate Non-Pro championship. It was a goal for Cuevas, who is a former NAAC Champion.

Cuevas was representing the Mexico Region, while his mare, Sofisat, was bred and raised in Europe. “She’s from Europe and was a finalist in the European Futurity,” he shared. “We have won a couple championships, and decided to bring her here to show in the North American Affiliate Championships. That was our goal.”

Sofisat is by Saturdaynight Custom and out of Sofia Catalyst. Cuevas and the 9-year-old mare competed the day before in the Novice Horse Non-Pro class. “We had a big penalty there, so today we made it up and fixed it. She was perfect today,” he said. “I have been coming to this show for 10 years or more. This is a really tough show. There are the best riders from North America and the world that compete here.”

Cuevas noted how happy he was to be able to compete in Oklahoma City. “I thank God that we are healthy during this event. I thank my family, and my wife, and my team here,” he said. 

In addition to a big check for $3,284, Cuevas will be taking home a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a custom Montana Silversmiths trophy buckle, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, a Classic Equine fleece cooler, and Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter.
 
José Vasquez Wins NAAC Prime Time Non Pro on Like Shiner.
José Vasquez from Markham, Illinois, rode home raised Like Shiner, owned by Smart Like Juice, Inc., to a 224.5 to top the NAAC Prime Time Non Pro in Adequan® Arena. Vasquez not only won the NAAC Prime Time, but third in the NAAC Non Pro as well. All totaled, Vasquez won $4,115.
 
Like Shiner is by NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire Smart Like Juice out of Wind Her Up Shiner.

“I used to show her mother, her father and all her siblings,” Vasquez said. “There are 22 of them that are old enough to show out of the same mare and they’ve all won money. They’ve won close to $900,000, so that’s a pretty good family I’d say.”

Vasquez says that Like Shiner shares the desirable traits characteristic of her lineage.
“They’re very simple, very talented and they all have longevity in the show pen. Like Shiner is 8 years old and I’ve shown her hard, she’s won more than $150,000 already,” adding that he was proud to see his score hold for the duration of the show. “I was the third horse in the pen this morning and it held. I was very fortunate and I’m very proud, it’s one of the best runs I’ve ever had on her score-wise. She can plus-1 any maneuver.”  

So many individuals have helped Vasquez over the years that he says it would be impossible to recognize them all, but he expressed appreciation for his current trainer, Alejandro Vasquez, who has been with him for the past six years and started Like Shiner.
 
As NAAC Prime Time Non-Pro champion Vasquez was awarded a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a custom Montana Silversmiths trophy buckle, a Bluebonnet Feeds gift certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, a Classic Equine fleece cooler, and Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter.

Tish Fappani Tops NRHA CINCH Non Pro Futurity Preliminary Round.
Over the past three days of competition, the top 3-year-old reining horses and their riders from across the country have vied for a spot in the finals of the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Futurity. With the conclusion of Tuesday’s preliminary round, most of the field is set for the CINCH Non Pro Futurity finals, which will be held on Friday, December 4.

For those not advancing directly to the finals from the first go, hope is still alive. That’s because of the CINCH Non Pro Futurity Consolation Round on Wednesday morning. The next 30 horses (plus ties) in the L4, next 12 in the L3, and next 10 in L1 and L2, will compete for a spot in the finals. The top five in each of the four Levels will earn a spot in Friday’s finals.

Vandorp and Route Sixty 6 Lead L3 Semi-Finals and Composite
Ruben Vandorp and Route Sixty 6 continue to hold the lead of both the L3 Semi-Finals and composite. Their score of 220 leads the semi-finals, giving them a solid 436 composite. Route Sixty 6, by Inferno Sixty Six and out of Fille Code, is owned and nominated by Heather Weisz.

Topping the L2 composite and tied for the high score of the L2 Semi-Finals high score is Dakin Allred and Blueeyed Cashmachine. The pair marked a 214.5 in the first round, and came back to mark an impressive 219 in the semi-finals to steal the composite lead with a 433.5. Blueeyed Cashmachine, by NRHA Two Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Gun and out of Nu Magic Cash, is owned and was nominated by Misty Valley Performance Horses.

Currently leading the Prime Time Open composite is Todd Crawford and Xtra Wimp It Good with a 436.5. Crawford and Xtra Wimp It Good, by NRHA Eleven Million Dollar Sire Wimpys Little Step and out of Lovin Me Good, were consistent with a 218 and a 218.5 (scores include handicaps) in the first two rounds of competition. Xtra Wimp It Good, nominated by Silver Spurs Equine, is owned by Adalberto Gonzales.

The finalists for all Levels of the Open will be decided during Wednesday’s Level 4 Open Semi-Finals sponsored by Not Ruf At All & Tamarack Ranch. The 79 L4 entries are all competing for a spot in Saturday night’s MS Diamonds TX L4 Open Futurity Finals, where the champion will, for the first time in history, receive a check for $250,000. That’s thanks to the incredible generosity and support of members of the Futurity Challenge, who worked to increase the payout for the event. In addition to the Open Champion’s big check, the CINCH Non Pro L4 Futurity Champion is guaranteed $60,000, and the added money for the Adequan® North American Affiliate Championships was doubled from the previous year.

Draws for both the Open and CINCH Non Pro Futurity Finals will be decided Thursday morning at 10 a.m. during the Platinum Performance Virtual Draw Party.

PARTNER PFERD 2021 wird um zwei Monate verschoben.

Leipzig –
Trotz großer Zuversicht und Motivation seitens der Leipziger Messe und „EN GARDE Marketing GmbH“ kann die PARTNER PFERD, präsentiert von der Sparkasse Leipzig und der Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe Sachsen, aufgrund der aktuellen pandemischen Entwicklungen nicht wie geplant vom 14. bis 17. Januar 2021 stattfinden. Um den Termin ein Jahr vor dem Weltcup-Finale in Leipzig dennoch halten zu können, wird der hochkarätige Pferdesport-Event um zwei Monate auf den 18. bis 21. März 2021 verschoben.


Nach Prüfung aller Möglichkeiten ist nach aktuellem Stand eine Durchführung der PARTNER PFERD, präsentiert von der Sparkasse Leipzig und der Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe Sachsen, vom 14. bis 17. Januar 2021 nicht in der Qualität möglich, wie Aussteller, Besucher und Aktive es von dem internationalen Fünf-Sterne-Turnier gewohnt sind. Die Einschnitte wären zu groß. Aus diesem Grund haben sich die Leipziger Messe sowie EN GARDE in enger Abstimmung mit der Deutschen Reiterlichen Vereinigung e.V. (FN), dem Weltreiterverband (FEI) und den Sponsoren des Turniers auf einen Alternativ-Termin vom 18. bis 21. März 2021 geeinigt.
 
„Wir halten es für sehr wichtig, ein Jahr vor dem Weltcup-Finale in Leipzig an der Veranstaltung 2021 festzuhalten“, erklärte der geschäftsführende Gesellschafter von EN GARDE, Volker Wulff. „So arbeiten wir alle gemeinsam auf Hochtouren an der Umsetzung des Pferdesport-Events.“
„Die PARTNER PFERD ist als Frühjahrs-Event fest im Turnierkalender verankert. Wir werden also alles in unserer Macht Stehende tun, damit Turnier und Ausstellung so sicher wie möglich im März stattfinden können“, sagte Martin Buhl-Wagner, Geschäftsführer der Leipziger Messe.
 
Mit der Verlegung des Reitsport-Turniers verschiebt sich auch die Ausstellung der PARTNER PFERD auf den März, die traditionell untrennbar mit dem Pferdesport-Event verbunden ist. Weitere Informationenen zu bereits gebuchten Ständen oder Turnier-Tieckets erhalten Aussteller und Besucher in den kommenden Tagen.

Derek Heitland Wins Adequan® NAAC Limited Open With Spooks Gotta Spark.

With an impressive 221.5 score, Iowa’s Derek Heitland topped the Adequan® NAAC Limited Open on Spooks Gotta Spark. The pair also won the concurrently run Limited Open ancillary, bringing the day’s paycheck to an impressive $1,128.

“He turned pretty good in today’s run, and when I circled him, he was with me, but his best thing today was his stops. He stopped three times, and he stopped big,” Heitland shared. “That’s his strength.”

Heitland just began riding the 7-year-old stallion, by NRHA Two Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Whiz out of Dolittle Lena. Just last year the horse, nicknamed Yellowstone, carried NRHA Six Million Dollar Rider Shawn Flarida to a fourth-place finish in the Run for a Million. The colt was a graduate of the 2015 NRHA/Markel Futurity Prospect Sale.

“We just got him a couple months ago and I started showing him, and he’s been a fun horse,” he said. “I thank the owner Kevin Truax and his daughter and family, and my wife and kids. I also thank Mike Davis who has helped me a lot.”

It wasn’t the only time for Heitland and Spooks Gotta Spark to win good money in the Adequan® Arena. Earlier in the week, the pair earned $4,998 for taking Reserve in the NAAC and ancillary Intermediate Open and placing in the NAAC and ancillary Open class.

“I liked the money they had here,” Heitland said with a laugh, referencing the NAAC’s doubled added money from the previous year. “I thought it was a good day. This was my last time to show this week, and it was a great way to end it.”

Heitland added, “Showing reiners has been my dream since I was 12 years old. To be able to come down here with everything going on is a dream come true. I couldn’t be any happier.”

Heitland will take a bevy of first-class awards home to Iowa for the NAAC Limited Open win, including a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a custom Montana Silversmiths trophy buckle, a Bluebonnet Feed gift certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, a Classic Equine fleece cooler, and Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter.
 
Nikki Tyndall and Stars At Midnite Win NAAC Rookie Pro and Ancillary Rookie Pro.

Taking top honors in the Rookie Pro division of the NRHA’s Adequan® NAAC, as well as in the ancillary Rookie Pro class, was Nikki Tyndall riding Stars At Midnite.

Winning the Adequan® NAAC Rookie Pro paid Tyndall $429, while the ancillary Rookie Pro class paid an additional $289. Tyndall also finished Reserve in both the Adequan® NAAC Limited Open and ancillary Limited Open for another $515.

Stars At Midnite is by NRHA Three Million Dollar Sire Gunners Special Nite and out of Chic Olena Starbuck. The 2013 mare is owned by Edward Frawley. “She’s just a superstar mare,” said Tyndall. “I showed her a bit over the summer but we’ve had her in the barn for about three years.”

Tyndall drew on the mare’s strengths today to clinch the win. “Both runs were awesome,” said Tyndall, who won in a runoff against Taylor Davis riding Missin Walla Whiz (Walla Walla Whiz x Missin My Friend) for Donald Burgy. “When I went to get her [for the runoff] she was practically sleeping in the corner. She’s a low energy gal so she was just awesome, she’s a super solid horse. She’s a huge stopper, great turner and she circles nice too.”

Tyndall originally hails from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, but currently lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she works for Dave Moore.

“I’d like to thank her owner Ed Frawley for letting me show his horse,” said Tyndall. “Also, my boss, Dave Moore and his wife Kim Moore, as well as the whole Sheridan Oaks team, and everyone who put this show together. I’m so excited!”  

Tyndall earned a plethora of awards for the NAAC Rookie Pro championship, including a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a Platinum Performance champion’s jacket, a 10-lb. bucket of Platinum Performance, a custom Montana Silversmiths trophy buckle, a Bluebonnet Feed gift certificate, SmartPak SmartTherapy Quick Wraps, a garment bag from Brandt Blankets, a Classic Equine fleece cooler, and Eqvalan from Dr. Joe Carter.

Bell and Salgado Tie for Win of NRHA Open Futurity First Go.

An elite field of entries has been whittled down to the top 75 of each division after the first go-round of the 2020 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Open Futurity. 

Competition began Thanksgiving Day at the State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, with the top 3-year-old reining horses in the nation competing not only for the prestige but also for some big paychecks.

This year, the NRHA Level 4 Open Futurity Champion will be decided during the clean-slate MS Diamonds TX Level (L) 4 Open Futurity Finals on Saturday, December 5. Then, for the first time in NRHA history, the champion will receive a check for $250,000.

Now, many are one step closer to that goal.

Unofficially, it took a score of 217 to advance to the semi-finals of the Level 4 Open, which will run Wednesday, December 2.

Currently leading the Level 4 Open are Brian Bell and Fernando Salgado, who both marked a 223.5.

Bell, who competed in the first section on Thursday, rode Gunnabebigtime to the high score. Gunnabebigtime, owned by Tami Nelson, is by NRHA Two Million Dollar Sire Gunnatrashya out of Big Time Jazzy.

Salgado rode Vinny Gun, owned by Guillermo De Anda Martinez, during the second section on Friday. Vinny Gun is by NRHA Two Million Dollar Sire A Sparkling Vintage and out of Dolled Up Gunner. The talented colt is a graduate of the 2018 NRHA/Markel Select Yearling Sale.

It took a 213.5 to advance to the semi-finals of the L3, and Kole Price and Trendsettter topped the level with a score of 223, which was good enough for a third-place tie in the L4. Trendsetter, owned by Price and Thomas Moffitt, is by NRHA Two Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Whiz and out of Timed To Shine.

A 210.5 was the score to have or beat in the Level 2, and Arno Honstetter and Sean Johnson, who each marked a 220.5, lead the field going into the semi-finals round.

Honstetter rode Blue Inferno, while Johnson showed River Of Diamonds. Blue Inferno, by Inferno Sixty Six out of Showtimes Lil Step, is owned by Story Book Stables. River Of Diamonds, by HF Mobster out of Starlight N Diamonds, is owned by Denise and Terry Martin.

Level 1 exhibitors with a score of 203 or better earned a semi-finals berth. Dalton Cunningham piloted RFR Voodoos Fuego to a 219.5 to lead the division. RFR Voodoos Fuego, owned by Peter Smith, is by NRHA Million Dollar Sire Shiners Voodoo Dr and out of Show N Tag.

Duane Latimer riding CSboomboomwalla, and Casey Hinton on Magnum Custom Dream, both have a score of 221 (including handicap) to top the Prime Time Open division. CSBoomboomwalla, owned by XCS Ranch LLC, is by NRHA Three Million Dollar Sire Walla Walla Whiz out of Cheeky Boom. Magnum Custom Dream, owned by Nancy Murfin-Moxley, is by NRHA Six Million Dollar Sire Magnum Chic Dream and out of Gunna Be Custom.

The semi-finals for Open Levels 1 – 3 will be held Monday and Tuesday, while the Level 4 Open Semi-Finals sponsored by Not Ruf At All and Tamarack Ranch will be held Wednesday, December 2. The top 30 from the composite of the first go and semi-finals in Levels 1 – 4 will earn a spot in Saturday’s clean-slate finals, as will the top 10 in the Prime Time Open.
