Armando Costa Neto Scores A Historic Win in 2016 Non Pro Derby at NCHA Summer Spectacular

August 10th, 2016 by Simone Cobb

There was a coronation of historic proportions when Armando Costa Neto won the Non Pro Derby Final at the 2016 NCHA Summer Spectacular and became the first ever Non Pro to claim the Triple Crown title!

Armando stirred up a frenzy in the Will Rogers aboard Watch Me Whip when he marked a 223.5 to secure the win in a close final.

Armando had a gut-wrenching 20 minute wait before the win was made official after he was given a review with his initial score of 221.

Armando told CHTO’s Simone Cobb the significance of his achievement was sill sinking in.

Armando and Watch Me Whip won the Super Stakes Non Pro Derby in April and the Non Pro Futurity Championship in December last year, making him the first person to win all three major titles consecutively in that division.

The horse has now amassed some $117,000 in winnings while Armando is just $35,000 short of the million dollar mark.

The Reserve Championship went to Kyle Manion who rode A Smooth Satin Doll to mark a 220 and Ty Moore clinched third aboard Set Fire To the Reyn just a point behind.

April 21st, 2016 by CHTO

Nadine Payne won her second major title in the Will Rogers Coliseum when she equalled a 222 in the 2016 NCHA Super Stakes Non Pro Final.

Nadine came out towards the end of the second set aboard Velvets Revolver with Armando Costa Neto’s leading score set in her sights.

Velvets Revolver is by WR This Cats Smart and out of Velvets Best Shot. The four year old doubled its earnings with the win, now at more than $66,000.

She and Armando both won more than $33,600 for the shared title. She did speak with CHTO after her win but due to technical difficulty, we can only bring you her run. Enjoy!

Armando rode Watch Me Whip, the horse he won the 2015 NCHA Non Pro Futurity Final on just four months ago.

The Reserve Champion was Ashley Flynn just one point behind on LHR Smooth Jamie Rey.
