Press Release

Clint Haverty of Krum , Texas , took top honors in the Cosequin/USEF Open Reining Championship at the Florida State Fair Reining in Tampa on Saturday, February 21, riding Who Whiz It, owned by Haverty Ranch. The pair wowed the crowd with a score 222 and earned $4,691.60 in the third of six qualifying competitions for the 2003/2004 Season.

Competition was fierce as Bryant Pace of Smithville , North Carolina , took command right out of the box with Little Royal BH, owned by Kim Horn, receiving an impressive score of 218.5. That score held up for most of the class, until Haverty rode into the ring and took the lead. As the last to go, Pace then had one more chance to beat the leaders riding A Grand Prize, owned by Charlie Rome, Stephanie Rome and Ann Sterling. He had to settle for the reserve spot with a score of 220. Pace did earn the most money for the evening taking home $5864.50 by virtue of placing second and third.

There was a tie for fourth and fifth place between Mike McEntire on Dun It At Dawn, owned by Jennifer Kersey of Sussex , England , and the legendary pair of Bill Horn and Trashadeous, owned by Classic-S-Ranch, scoring 217.5. Horn and the 17-year-old chestnut received a standing ovation from the appreciative crowd as he and his legendary mount left the ring.

The program culminates with the $75,000 Bayer/USEF Open Reining Championship Final that will take place at the NRHA Derby in Oklahoma City , OK on Sunday, May 23, 2004 .
