Barnwell Ramsey proved to be a winning wager after taking out the 2016 NCHA Amateur Futurity Final in Fort Worth.
Barnwell, from Huntersville, NC, rode Reyzurbetsonthiscat and marked a solid 222, some four and half points ahead of the field.
It’s the same horse trainer Craig Thompson topped the first go round with scoring a 223. Reyzurbetsonthiscat was sired by Bet Hesa Cat and was out of Ariel Rey.
Barwell takes home more than $15,000 for the win and a brand new goose neck trailer donated by Cowboy Trailer Sales.
Barnwell told CHTO’s Simone Cobb it’s the first time he ever finaled at the Will Rogers.
Blake Graham took the Reserve buckle on Zacks Smoothie while Peter Ryan from Australia came third aboard Drip Drop of Reyn.
