What hasn’t this man accomplished? There’s few titles, if any, that Austin Shepard hasn’t won. He’s now started winning them twice! Austin claimed the 2017 NCHA World Championship aboard Deluxe Checks, his second such title and set a record for the most money won in World Finals history, some $146,977.
While Austin came into the finals with a $15,000 lead, Tatum Rice could have snuck past him, after the pair spent much of the year dueling it out. But Austin quickly wrapped up the Finals scoring 233 in two go-rounds.
He told CHTO’s Simone Cobb he owes much of his success to his team, with special mention to his two year old trainer Seth Holcombe.
