Doug Pritchett was the epitome of patience persevering after winning the Unlimited Amateur Derby Championship in the 2016 NCHA Summer Spectacular.
Doug, who has been cutting since 1978, took out his first major title in the Will Rogers on Dual Glen Rey 012 by marking a 219.5.
Dual Glen Rey is a Dual Rey out of Stylish Amanda. The pair won more than $8,000 for their win over a field of 28 finalists.
From Quinlan, Texas, Doug also got a second horse, Baer, into the final. He told CHTO’s Simone Cobb it was a proud night.
The Reserve Championship was shared between Bear Davis who rode Red Solo Catt and Susan Koser on DMAC Moveslikejagger after both scored 218.5.
