So incredibly blessed to have so many great memories and experiences doing what I so truly love! Our stay here at Ft. Smith was a good one this year! We qualified back 5 horses; two in the derby and three in the futurity.
Frenchmans Rockin, owned by Lindsey Sykes Netterville and Matthew Netterville came in and gave it his all. I appreciate you all allowing me to have him. He has come a long way in a year, and he has so much more to give! Lindsey, you are going to thoroughly enjoy him! He ended up 9th.
VQ Im Buzzed stayed solid! I am so proud of him for competing with the big boys in the derby, when he is just a 5yr old futurity horse! He is owned by Robin Weaver; I love this kind gelding. I am excited about the fall futurities with this big guy!
Sudden Hero, who is owned by Jennifer Snow and Dale Snow, ran a little free in the finals, however still ended up 9th. He is a special Little horse. I appreciate being able to jockey him his futurity year.
Dash ta Perfection, owned by DK Potter, qualified back despite the fact that she is very green. She has so much Speed. I was super proud that she didn’t fall apart during the finals. She remained relatively relaxed, and she ended up 31st in the short go.
Dash ta Fire Canyon, owned by Charlie Kendall, made a nice run in the finals. She tipped the second to run a 16.84?, which was a $3800 barrel.... I am still super proud of how she is maturing out. Getting her ready for the Pink Buckle in the fall!
I am so incredibly grateful to all that help me along the way! There are so many people behind many of us trainers that help us achieve our success. Emily Necaise, thank you so very very much.... she has stuck with me this week despite the fact my kinkajou attacked her foot, and I insisted her hold the horses with me through out the tornado 😂.... all jokes aside she is such a talented person, and I am extremely fortunate to have her on my team.
