Brent Wright and Miss Rey O Shine Lead NRBC Open Prelims

With the conclusion of the first set of Open entries of the 11th Annual National Reining Breeders Classic, it was clear that the “Million Dollar Show” is as tough as ever. The first 106 Open horses competed in the first go Wednesday, April 16.

The top ten horses in the Open division all marked higher than a 221, with Miss Rey O Shine (Shining Spark X Miss Rey O Lena) and Brent Wright leading the way with a 227. Miss Rey O Shine is owned by Gloria Bahn of Wildwood, Missouri.

Holding tightly to a second place spot with a score of 226.5 is Shawn Flarida and RC Fancy Step (Wimpys Little Step X Sonita Wilson), owned by Jimmy Pierce and Mark Schols, of Surf City, North Carolina.

In the Intermediate Open division, Robin Schoeller and Wimpys Pinesail (Wimpys Little Step X Pinesail) top the leader board with a 221. Wimpys Pinesail is owned by Lafayette, Indiana, native Charles Vaughn.

Currently tied for second in the Intermediate Open and holding the first spot in the Limited Open is Sebastian Petroll and Dun It In The Bay, owned by Tom and Mandy McCutcheon of Aubrey, Texas. Petroll and Dun It In The Bay (Starlights Wrangler X Cee Dun It Do It) marked a 220.

Tracer Gilson and Silvernbluestarbuck (Smart Starbuck X Dun It For Chex) also marked a 220 to move into the second place tie in the Intermediate Open division.

After the second set of Open NRBC entries Thursday evening, the thirty Open Classic finalists will be decided – and one of those entries will earn the prestigious title of NRBC Champion and an impressive check of $75,000 on Saturday evening.

The Novice Horse Non Pro and Rookie classes were held Wednesday in the East Arena. Nadine Galbraith and Mister Dual Train were the Novice Horse Non Pro Champions after marking a 144.5. Galbraith, of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, took home a check for $779.

The Rookie title went to Kimberly Tillman and Im Genuinely Smart. Im Genuinely Smart and Tillman, of Tioga, Texas, marked a 144.5.

On another exciting note, Dick Waltenberry, of Waltenberry Video Production, reported that the live webcast of the NRBC had over 8,000 hits, so the whole world seems to be watching the NRBC.

The second section of the Open Preliminaries begins on Thursday morning at 8 am.

The National Reining Breeders Classic is the most successful stallion incentive program in reining history. In just 11 years, the NRBC has grown to include almost 300 subscribed stallions and over 20,000 enrolled foals.
