NRCHA Stakes Begins!

Press Release

The NRCHA Stakes began on Wednesday with the Snaffle Bit Stakes Non Pro Herd Work competition, and by the end of the day, a pair of 2003 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion riders had again risen to the forefront.

Tied for the lead in the Non Pro were Stacey Warnock on My Peppy Jeep and Anne Reynolds on Smart Chic Dot Com. Both scored 216 and Warnock, still eligible for $50K competition, is also leading that division. Just behind her was John McCarty with a 215 on Sir Hobbs.

It was a tie in the Amateur between Kristi Locatelli on Stylish Play Time (Docs Stylish Oak X Playin Cube) and John Pasco on Another Hot Chic (Just Plain Colonel X Reminics Bar Girl). Both scored 210.

In the Open Snaffle Bit Stakes, the herd work winner was Travelenas Lucky Legs (Travelena X Cats Okey Dokey) owned by Alan and Kay Needle and ridden by Bob Avila to a score of 218.5. Jon Roeser rode Heart Of A Fox (As Smart As A Fox X Tivios Reminic) to a score of 216, good for a tie for second on the horse he owns with Steve and Karen Twisselman. Balancing that tie was John Ward on Laura Ward's Magic Reminic (Reminic X Spring Plain).

Jimmie Paul rode Bayou Shiner (Shining Spark X Docs Missy Command) owned by Linda Dunlevie to the lead in both the Intermediate and Limited Open, with a score of 215.5.

The last event of the day was the Hackamore Stakes Herd Work, and two outstanding Non Pro riders, cross-entered in the Open, swept the field. Dema Paul, riding Primos Bob Acre (Teninas First X Bob Acre Angelina) scored 221, as did Bubba Petty on Shiners Buenonic (Shining Spark X Bueno Q Nic). That put them in a tie for the Open and Non Pro, and set Petty at the top of the $50K Non Pro, as well.

The show begins at 8 am on Thursday, at Westworld in Scottsdale, with a variety of competition going on all day long, ending with the cow work of the Hackamore Stakes, which will determine the championship.
