Marilyn Jo Franz Claims First Futurity Buckle On Home Bred Horse!

December 9th, 2015 by CHTO

Twenty six years of persistence and passion finally paid off for Marilyn Jo Franz when she won the 2015 NCHA Amateur Futurity Final in Fort Worth.

Marilyn marked a 217 aboard Hawks Desire, a horse she bred by EBR Kitty Hawk out of Tina Bars Annie to beat out a large field of 30 competitors.

Marilyn, from Stillwater, Oklahoma, won more than $9,000 to take her total earnings to just under $100,000.

She told CHTO’s Simone Cobb it was a dream come true, made more special by having her nephew, Alex Franz compete in the same final on a horse also by her stud, EBR Kitty Hawk.
