Tish Fappani Slides to Cool NRHA Futurity Level 4 Non-Pro Championship

国家驯马协会(NRHA)未来非职业决赛于周五上午开始,Nov.30,第一部分。在第二节中,held later in the afternoon,33 of the top competitors rode into the arena aboard the hottest futurity prospects in the industry.

当蒂什·法帕尼和IceCube滑进吉姆·诺里克竞技场,成为最后一场平局的第二名时,Fappani's show vest glittered beneath the bright lights,and their maneuvers dazzled the crowd and judges alike.

大一新生Sire SG Freeze Enterprise和Fappani的种马儿子完成了他们的模式,头顶上的记分板宣布他们已经和萨曼莎·史密斯之前的平局相符,riding Neverthoughtiwould,麦迪逊·斯蒂德,登上夜空,用自己的222.5。

The roar of the crowd nearly drowned the announcer's voice informing the top three competitors to prepare their mounts for a run-off.The crowd was privy to another thrilling display of horsemanship,之后,Fappani和IceCube以223.5分的成绩获得4级非职业锦标赛冠军,并以45美元的价格获得一张支票。117.

“太棒了!I was nervous,“said a breathless Fappani about her thrilling run-off for the title.“It was just tight because we were so late in the draw,所以我没有时间让他发泄。I felt bad for him because he didn't really have the time to catch his air."“

这匹3岁的种马在30分钟内第二次回到决赛场地时,他的血管里一定结了冰,得分更高。

“他只是一匹特殊的马;he's a big,强壮的马,“said Fappani,who had $543,总决赛前的终身收益为893英镑。

“He's really good-minded.He hung with me both times.我从来没有觉得他离开我,“她加了一匹种马,谁不属于布默哈克·玛丽·塔里斯的设计师基因。“在第一轮比赛中,我自己也犯了一些错误,so he was great.I just needed to come back in and be clean."“

Icecube,who took Reserve at the High Roller Reining Classic Futurity and the Best of the West Futurity earlier this year,以8美元进入决赛,以他的名义。由Rancho Oso Rio LLC培育,法帕尼拥有的马是一匹“big turner and is getting stronger in his stops,“据法帕尼说,谁也是2015年NRHA未来4级非职业冠军。

“他是一个到处乱跑的人,too,因为他只是有点驼背。很有趣。他是一匹整洁的马!“she added.

When Icecube is at home,他与观众在决赛中看到的激烈竞争对手几乎没有什么相似之处。“He's always half-asleep and he walks really slow,“Fappani said with a laugh.“他真是一匹冷酷的马。”“

Icecube has a well-deserved rest to look forward to after the Futurity.法帕尼期待着在他4岁的赛季中带着她的种马回到赛场。

222.5分让萨曼莎·史密斯和她3岁的女儿内尔特霍特与法帕尼和麦迪逊·斯蒂德三方平手。在径流期间标记218后,Smith and her gelding secured the Futurity Level 3 Non-Pro Championship,以及4级非专业保留所有权

“我感觉很好。如果两周前有人告诉我我现在就在那里,我会说不可能的!“史密斯说,of Edmond,奥克拉荷马。“我不得不休息五年,因为伤病和其他原因我不能骑车,我回来了,感觉比以前好多了。回到这里绝对是无价之宝。我很幸运!““

Smith's favorite quality of the Pale Face Dunnit gelding,谁是光芒四射的玛莉·希恩·提尼,是他的想法。

“他是一匹可爱的小白马!今晚大家都站在他这边,but his mind is what makes him so ready.He's always messing around on the ground,but you know when you get on him,it's business,“Smith said.“He'll go as easy or as hard as you want.他每天都是同一匹马。”“

While Neverthoughtiwould,是胡桃溪牧场培育的,has a good mind,史密斯相信他在模式12中表现出来的技能——尤其是他的圈子——使他与众不同。

“He loves to come back and he's so good at changing leads,“Smith added.“I can trust him,and to be able to trust a 3-year-old like I trust him is pretty rare."“

The Martin Larcombe-trained horse,who is owned by Lance Griffin,of Edmond,Oklahoma,以4美元进入决赛,967 under his belt.

“I was just ecstatic to make the finals!It's been so many years since I've made the finals.我知道今晚我在节目中已经有了一个大标记,我只想出去玩个痛快——在我的马上玩个痛快——这很管用!“一个兴奋的史密斯说,玫瑰花环被披在她的山上。

不管怎样,我都会把他的鞋子脱下来,和史密斯一起回家,在他成功的未来赛季之后,他将和另一个盖尔丁一起进行研发。

“Its going to be like Silly 1 and Silly 2 at home with them,但他会休息几个月,然后在春天回到训练场,“史密斯说,who mentioned she and Neverthoughtiwould will be at the National Reining Breeder's Classic and the NRHA Derby for Neverthoughtiwould's 4-year-old year.

在第二节的平局27中,当麦迪逊的骏马和旋转农场在机动后被培育成夜袭机动时,人群很活跃。and the judges seemed to agree with their enthusiasm.这对搭档得了222.5分,在回到竞技场参加三人决胜赛之前有点喘息。

At that point,骏马,the only Level 2 person in the runoff,已经获得了那个级别的头衔。As they entered the arena for the second time that evening,she decided she had to give it all she had.

“There was literally no prep because it was mainly walk and give him water and let him cool down a little bit,“斯泰德解释说。“In my first go,我有点紧张,有点超前于他。I hit a little bit of bad ground on the run-in,so I just wanted to get a little better ground for him and just work on a few little things on my showmanship aspect of it,but nothing really big to change.这是决赛;你只有一种选择,就这样吧!““

这对搭档表现得很好,but as Into The Nite came around the corner to run down to his second stop,他踢了出去。评委们看了录像后,这次赛跑得了187.5分,but Steed was still grinning ear to ear.

“你不能在那一点上生气,“she said.“他累了,这是漫长的一周,这很难。他们是婴儿,they're learning – I'm learning.就是这样,我很庆幸我有他,我甚至能进入决赛。So I'm really happy with him,我真高兴。”“

赢得2级,三级储备、四级储备并列,斯泰德和她的种马得到了63美元,776 check.进入尼特炮手专用炸药X Chexy Dun it x好莱坞Dun it)、who had $9,444 on his record from winning the塔尔萨莱宁经典未来第4级,3 and 2 Non-Pro and competing at the Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity,now boasts more than $73,000.Steed doubled her own lifetime earnings and now stands at $124,319年。

The student at SMU in Dallas thanked trainer Yonathan Baruch and all of his assistants for all of their training and help with Into The Nite.因为斯泰德是SMU马术队的,she has to depend on them to help ride the stallion,although she goes to visit as often as she can.

“向约翰致敬。He's been my biggest fan and my biggest supporter throughout this whole entire process and the futurity season,“she said.“He does a great job of getting one broke to its ability and knowing the capabilities of that horse and not pushing it beyond that.Kudos to him and all of his assistants,以及谷仓里的每个人。

“我非常感谢他[入夜]和我们的旅程,“she added of the horse that was purchased from the 2016 Legacy Reining Breeders Sale.“从他一岁起我就有了他,我非常喜欢成为这个过程的一部分,尽我所能从他那里学习。He goes out and tries his heart out every time,停止大。He's going to have a long show career with me,so I'm very happy for him and with him."“

When Samuel Flarida flew into the arena and slid to a stop with a fanfare of dirt following the hooves of Hollywooddirtysecret,the judges and the crowd sat up to take notice.

这位年轻的职业选手在长辈和同龄人的激烈竞争中,从第15场平局中,将Hollywoodstinselt Gelding领衔到220场,这一成绩将确保他获得NRHA未来1级和青年非职业头衔。

二人组,who also placed fifth in Level 4,三级和二级储备,went home with combined earnings of $58,710 to add to the lifetime earnings of $35,959 Flarida had prior to the Futurity.

“I don't know what to think,我真的很高兴。I made everyone really proud.This horse is just awesome.He's been the best for me all year!“弗拉里达说,作为凝胶,who is out of Maximum RPM (by Einsteins Revolution),craned his neck to pull the rose garland from around his shoulders,yet again.

“我真的没有计划,试着找点乐子把它摆出来,“Flarida补充说:who was a member of the Platinum Performance U.S.Junior Team for the 2017 SVAG Fédération Equestre Internationale World Reining Championships in Switzerland at 14 years of age.“尽量不要罚点球,看看他有什么。He was really good!““

凝胶,who was bred by Patricia Duque,of Lafayette,California,has an impressive stop according to Flarida.Even though he's ridden the 3-year-old for the last two years,his mount surprised him during the finals.

“他真的能停下来but tonight his best thing was his turn.He plus-oned on his turnaround!Last night I didn't think I could have a zero turn on him,and he came in and turned a plus-one.真的很酷!“弗莱达说,beaming with quiet enthusiasm.

凝胶,他是弗莱达父亲的主人,600万美元骑手肖恩·弗莱达,is affectionately known as"巨无霸”多亏了他的胃口。巨无霸走进决赛21美元,749 in prior earnings,今年早些时候,他在全美四分之一马匹大会(All American Quarter Horse Congress Futurity)上获得了3级和2级预备役头衔,其中一部分是由他获得的。

“He's kind of really goofy,he loves to eat and he does goofy stuff,“Flarida explained of the horse his family raised.“他会努力工作,然后当我们回到谷仓时,他会到处乱跳的。”“

这对搭档计划在进入大麦克4岁赛季之前休息一下。

“Hopefully we will be at the NRBC unless my dad takes him,“said Flarida with a smile.
