Lengel’s Score Holds and McEntire Takes Prime Time Open Championship.
 
Today marked the conclusion of the first go round of open competition at the 2018 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Derby. The competition was fierce as riders battled to mark a high enough score to qualify for the prestigious Open Derby Finals, which take place Saturday, June 30 in the Jim Norick Arena at Oklahoma State Fair Park.
 
Marking the top scores of the day were:

  • A 226 for Jon Sather’s Shining In Town (2013 stallion with $64,293.68 NRHA Lifetime Earnings [LTE]) ridden by NRHA Million Dollar Rider Jason Vanlandingham
  • A 224 for Quarter Dream SRL’s Sugar Little Step (2012 stallion with $28,941.45 NRHA LTE) ridden by 2018 Level (L)4 NRHA European Open Futurity Champion Gennaro Lendi
  • A 224 for Rhodes River Ranch’s Tinker With Dreams (2014 stallion with $57,417.79 NRHA LTE) ridden by NRHA Million Dollar Rider Casey Deary

While the competition was impressive, none could top Abby Lengel and Jody Puno’s ARC Gunna Mark Ya’s score of 226 ½ from day one of open competition. Bred and nominated by Arcese Quarter Horses USA, ARC Gunna Mark Ya is by NRHA Million Dollar Sire Gunnatrashya and out of Shiney Miss Marker and helped Lengel claim the top spot in both the L3 and 4. Lengel was quick to say that she was shocked that her score held from day one. “I never expected to have the high score. I just wanted to make the L4 finals. I am still just waiting to wake up from this incredible dream.”
Gabriel Bittar Borges and Checksworthy also marked a high enough score on day one to remain atop the L1 and 2 divisions. Bred, owned and nominated by Terry Leffew, Checksworthy is by Big Chex To Cash and out of Banjoes Shining Star. The duo’s score of 220 ½ was also high enough to qualify them for both the L3 and 4 open finals. Borges also qualified for the L1-3 finals on his own mount, Gotta Shiney Playboy (NRHA Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Whiz x Shining Sage).
 
Taking the 2018 NRHA Open Prime Time Derby Championship were Mike McEntire and A4L-Equine’s Spooks The Hard Way (NRHA Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Gun x Im So Anson). The 2013 gelding was bred by Silver Spurs Equine and nominated by Michelle Miola and started training with McEntire earlier this year. “I was struggling with him earlier this year, but he has gotten better and has begun to fit me. He is very physical and athletic, and did a lot for me today,” said McEntire, who will also ride Spooks The Hard Way in section two of the open finals.

During the NRHA Derby, the world’s best 4-, 5-, and 6-year-old reining horses and competitors come to Oklahoma City to compete for an estimated total purse and cash prizes of more than $1 million. The weekend features the NRHA Non Pro Derby finals starting at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday, June 29 and the NRHA Open Derby finals at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 30.

30. 6. 18 - WRWS/NRHA - The 2018 NRHA Derby – More Than Reining. 

June 28, 2018 –
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma –
During the last week of June each year, Oklahoma State Fair Park is filled with the world’s most talented 4-, 5- and 6-year-old reining horses and competitors vying for a prestigious National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Derby championship. This year, however, a new crowd was seen walking through the barns—taking the Derby to a whole new level.
 
Youth from Toby Keith’s OK Kids Korral, a place for families to stay while their child is undergoing treatment for cancer, came to the event for the inaugural Hay Day at the NRHA Derby hosted by the National Reining Horse Youth Association (NRHyA). The event was an opportunity to showcase our sport and give back to the youth of Oklahoma City.

The day started off with a trip to the NRHA office, where each honorary guest teamed up with a member of the NRHyA officer team to make pool noodle ponies and change into their new cowboy and cowgirl shirts, courtesy of NRHA Corporate Partner, CINCH. They then sat down and enjoyed a pizza party and watched videos about what the association is all about.
 
The real excitement began when the group headed over to State Fair Park where they got to meet our great event vendors and sponsors, took a behind-the-scenes look at how reining is judged and watched a horse get a brand new pair of shoes. To end the day, each kid had the opportunity to sit in the saddle atop a reining horse!

Lerin Thomas, NRHA Youth Programs Advisor was thrilled with the success of the event. “The kids who came from the OK Kids Korral to hang out with us during Hay Day were fantastic. The number of smiles I saw on their faces and our NRHyA officer team was enough to light up a room for days! These kids go through things that no one should ever have to go through, and it was our pleasure hosting and teaching them all the great things about the reining industry!”
 
Hay Day at the NRHA Derby would not have been possible without the help and support of the generous sponsors and volunteers who gave up their time and energy to make this event the best it could be.

During the NRHA Derby, the world’s best 4-, 5-, and 6-year-old reining horses and competitors come to Oklahoma City to compete for an estimated total purse and cash prizes of more than $1 million.

The arena lights dimmed as the second day of non pro competition ended at the 2018 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Derby. With 663 entries across Levels (L)1-4, the non pro competition featured many talented horse and rider combinations. This year’s Non Pro Derby entries are the largest in history - nearly 13% percent larger than the previous record-setting edition in 2017.
 
Scoring a 218 ½ in the first day of competition was enough for Cade McCutcheon and Dual Reality (Mister Nicadual x Snip O Chex) to stay on top of the leaderboard in both the L4 and Youth divisions. Owned by Tom and Mandy McCutcheon, the 5-year-old gelding was bred and nominated by Cinder Lakes Ranch. McCutcheon was surprised his score held throughout day two but credited the judges for remaining consistent across both days. “I feel pretty good about how I rode, so I am sticking to the same plan during the finals,” said McCutcheon.
 
McCutcheon also posted the day’s third highest score on Customized Dually (Mister Nicadual x Customized Gunner), a 4-year-old stallion bred, owned and nominated by McQuay Stables. Together, the pair earned a 217 and a spot in the L4 and Youth Non Pro Derby finals.

Only a half point behind was McCutcheon’s mom, Mandy, and her mount, Hollywood Starburst. By NRHA Six Million Dollar Sire and Hall of Fame inductee Hollywood Dun It and out of Chic Olena Starbuck, the dun mare was bred and nominated by Turnabout Farm Inc and is no stranger to the spotlight. With Mandy aboard, the duo was crowned the 2017 NRHA Non Pro Derby Champions and are looking for a repeat win this year.
 
Also scoring a 218 was Smart Like Juice Inc’s Wimpy Little Tejano and Mariana Vazquez. Bred by Brent Loseke and nominated by Gilberto Leal, Wimpy Little Tejano is by NRHA Eleven Million Dollar Sire Topsail Whiz and out of Tejana Chic. Together, she and Vazquez have had much success this year – placing second behind her dad, Jose, in the Carolina Classic L4 Non Pro Final. The father/daughter duo will have their chance to duke it out in the L4 Non Pro final once again on Friday night as Jose qualified on his mount, Like Shiner (NRHA Hall of Fame inductee Smart Like Juice x Wind Er Up Shiner).

With the preliminary non pro go round completed, the following scores were needed to advance to the nearly $200,000-added finals:

Level 4 Non Pro Top 30 horses (plus ties):  Bubble 213 1/2

NRHyA Holds Fiesta to Welcome IEA to the 2018 NRHA Derby. 
Before the beginning of the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Western National Finals, hosted during the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Derby, contestants, families and trainers came to the NRHA office for food, inflatables, roping and more!

To kick off the night, NRHA held a Judging Fundamentals meeting. During the meeting, NRHA Professional, Judge and Youth Committee Chair, Brett Walters, discussed exactly how maneuvers during a reining run would be scored by judges. Walters utilized the new NRHA Maneuver Standards dvd to walk students through a live look from a judge’s chair. During the seminar, he also discussed what judges want to see in order to award points. Additionally, Walters gave the contestants advice on how improve their reining skills and be better horseman.

Immediately following the judging fundamentals meeting, the National Reining Horse Youth Association (NRHyA) hosted a fiesta themed party to welcome IEA to the 2018 NRHA Derby. There were many activities for the contestants, families and trainers to enjoy – ending in a night full of excitement! NRHyA had a mechanical bull, inflatable obstacle course, water slides, volleyball, sidewalk games, roping, a taco truck and ice cream. The party was well-attended and a great way to kick off the IEA Western National Finals!
