It was back to back titles for Beau Galyean when he took out the 2018 NCHA Super Stakes Classic Final in Fort Worth. Beau rode 2015 Futurity Champion, Stevie Rey Von and marked a massive 231 to beat Adan Banuelos sitting on a 226. Beau, who won the same event last year, told CHTO’s Simone Cobb he’s only been training the stud for the past month, after Alvin and Becky Fults purchased him.
Ed Dufurrena rocked the house with Stevie Rey Von to take out the 2015 NCHA Open Futurity Championship in the Will Rogers Coliseum at Fort Worth.
In front of a packed crowd, Ed and his home-bred stud (Metallic Cat x Miss Ella Rey) put in a string of hard stops to mark an impressive 225, some 4 points ahead of reserve champion Lindy Burch.
Ed won $200,000 for his win.
It’s been an extremely successful show all up for the Dufurrena family, with daughter Rieta also winning the Limited Non Pro Futurity on Stevie Rey Von and their horse Purple Reyn named Non Pro Horse Of The Year.
Ed spoke with CHTO’s Simone Cobb saying his win was a dream come true. Watch his run below!
Lindy Burch scored a 221 on Bet Shes Smooth to win $88,126, while Jesse Lennox and Kody Porterfield tied for third with a 217.5. They rode Rockin Sallycat and This Isa Third respectively and each took home $71,280.
Consistency won the day and the champion’s check for Rieta Dufurrena, who took out the Limited Non Pro Final at the 2015 NCHA Futurity in Fort Worth.
Rieta marked a 220 on Stevie Rey Von, the pair’s third such score at the show to wrap up the win. They competed against a field of 30 finalists and took home $9,426 for the title.
