Futurity First

Horse & Rider - - Talk -

For the first time in Na­tional Rein­ing Horse As­so­ci­a­tion his­tory, the open futurity was won by a horse shown in ro­mal reins. When An­drea Fap­pani, Scotts­dale, Ari­zona, ran Spooky Whiz into the arena for their first slid­ing stop, the en­tire crowd took no­tice of the West Coast-style reins and sat up to watch. The pair, run­ning se­cond to last in the event, marked a 225.5 to win a guar­an­teed $150,000. Spooky Whiz, a geld­ing, is by Spooks Gotta Whiz and out of Myo Starlight.
