Kody Porterfield put in a career-topping performance to take out the John Deere division of the Open Final at the 2015 NCHA Futurity in Fort Worth.
A crowd favorite, Kody marked a 222 on This Isa Third, to win by 3 points. He more than doubled his earnings with his first win in the Will Rogers Coliseum by taking home just under $17,000.
This is the biggest win yet for Kody, who trains for Carl and Shawnea Smith at Jacksboro, Tx. Their horse, This Isa Third was sired by Third Cutting and is out of Cat Fancy This.
Kody Spoke to CHTO’s Simone Cobb.
