Anne Reynolds, Chris Mathews and Ashley Good make stunning Victories!

With the first two legs of Open preliminary competition completed, the Non

Pro, Intermediate Non Pro, and Amateur competitors made their Snaffle Bit

Futurity debut on Friday.

Although the top Non Pro and Intermediate Non Pro riders will advance to the

finals, the Amateur competition is decided in one go, and two newcomers -

Chris Mathews and Ashley Good - are leading the pack with identical scores

of 209 after the herd work.

Mathews, of Santa Maria, California, rode Prime Chic Olena, by Smart Chic

Olena and out of Prime Time Siemon, while Good rode Cinnabars Lil Spark, by

Cinnabars Lil Lena and out of Shiners Oakie Val.

Mathews first show ever was the NRCHA Hackamore Classic, where he won the

Non Pro Limited Provisional. Next he went to the NRCHA Derby, and won the

Non Pro Hackamore Championship.

Good, of Purcell, Oklahoma, typically works behind the scenes helping her

husband, trainer T.J. Good. In fact, this Snaffle Bit Futurity is one of her

first shows, ever!

The Amateur Championship will be decided after the cow work preliminaries on

Tuesday, September 30, at the Reno Livestock Events Center in Reno, Nevada.

The Futurity will run through October 5.

In the Non Pro division, former Snaffle Bit Futurity Non Pro Champion Anne

Reynolds, of King Hill, Idaho, marked the high score of the day with a 216

on Peptos Smart Style, by Peptos Stylish Oak and out of Smart Chicy Dee.

Reynolds, who is also the NRCHA's only woman million dollar rider and only

Non Pro million dollar rider, has won an unprecedented four Snaffle Bit

Futurity Non Pro Championships.

In the Intermediate Non Pro division, John McCarty, of Gaviota, California,

marked the high score with a 214.5 on Mister Diamond Shine. Mister Diamond

Shine is by Mister Dual Pep and out of Shinersdiamondjackie.
