Blue Allen Wins 2008 Snaffle Bit Futurity Limited Open Bridle Championship and Reserve

Blue Allen was the man of the hour in the Limited Open Bridle at the 2008 Snaffle Bit Futurity.

Allen entered four horses in the $1,500 added class, placing in the money on three, including a Championship on Chics Peppy Pistol, owned by John Rosenbaum, and a Reserve Championship on Whiskeys Starlight, owned by Mitch and Christa Guerrieri. “It was a little hectic when I was getting them ready.” He laughed, adding, “I guess I did OK, they really worked well.”

Chics Peppy Pistol, by Smart Chic Olena and out of Ms Silverita, marked scores of 214.5 in the rein work, and 215.5 in the cow work for a 430 total. The win garnered $2,520, a Gist Silversmiths Champion Buckle sponsored by Richard Winters horsemanship, a Cinch monogrammed vest from Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers/Outlaw Conversions, and Platinum Performance.

On the way to his Reserve Championship on Whiskey Starlight, the modest Alamosa, Colorado, native marked 214 and 214.5 in the rein and cow work, respectively. For winning Reserve, he was awarded $2,070, a Cinch monogrammed vest, and Platinum Performance. Allen and Whiskey Starlight are also the 2007 NRCHA Limited Open Bridle Reserve World Champions.

And although the Limited Open Bridle is over, Allen still can’t relax – he also made the Limited Open Finals on Mister Kat. When asked how he would prepare for the Finals, he laughed, “I think I’m just going to pray.”

The Snaffle Bit Futurity runs through October 5 at the Reno Livestock Events Center in Reno, Nevada.
