Gary Gonsalves stole the show on a night of great cutting at the Open Classic Challenge final in the 2016 NCHA Summer Spectacular.
Gary and Reyzin The Cash marked a 229, to sneak past John Mitchell’s 228 in the second set to the much excitement from the crowd.
Gary won the Derby Championship at the same event last year on Reyzin The Cash, his first major title in the Will Rogers.
Gary told CHTO’s Simone Cobb he had a lot of fun showing his stud, which has now surpassed $200,000 in winnings.
John Mitchell rode CR Tuff Lucy, while tree riders shared third place with a 223: Tarin Rice aboard Miss Callie Cat, Wes Galyean on Button Down Supercat and Steve Oehlhof astride Suen You Will See.
