It was the best shot of adrenalin Steve Anderson has experienced in his 22 years of cutting when he won the Non Pro Classic Championship at the 2018 Super Stakes. Steve rode Littlemak to mark an impressive 224, a half point in front of Reserve Champion Alexa Stent who rode Bowmerang.
After more than two decades of cutting, Gary Barker enjoyed the sweet success of taking out the Unlimited Amateur Classic at the 2018 Super Stakes. Gary rode Smooth Nu Cat and marked a 224 in a competitive final that saw half a point difference between first, and second and second and third. He told CHTO’s Simone Cobb it was doubly satisfying because he won on a horse he bred. Jacob Taurel makes Reserve Champion with a 223.5 on Little Jewels Olena.
