$50,000 Jack & Phoebe Cooke Open Bridle Spectacular Kicks Off With Herd Work

Three top trainers are in a dead heat after completing the herd work of the $50,000 Jack & Phoebe Cooke Open Bridle Spectacular at the 2008 National Reined Cow Horse Association Derby, held June 17-22 at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, California. Jon Roeser, riding Boons Royal Legacy, Bob Avila riding Chics Magic Potion, and Todd Crawford riding Smart Shinetta all scored a 216 to tie for the lead going into the next round of competition.

All three horses have enviable resumes. Boons Royal Legacy, a 9-year-old stallion by Peptoboonsmal and out of Smogy Doc, is owned by Brian and Cynthia Holthouse of San Juan Bautista, California. He was the 2004 Open Reserve Champion at the Hackamore Classic, and also earned a Superior Reined Cow Horse Award that year. In 2007, he won the herd work at the NRCHA Derby and finished sixth overall. In 2008, Boons Royal Legacy was honored with his Supreme Reined Cow Horse Award.

Chics Magic Potion and Bob Avila are also a champion team. The pair won the 2003 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open title, and also made the National Reining Horse Association Open Finals. They went on to capture the NRCHA Stakes Championship, and recently were the 2008 Magnificent 7 Champions. Chics Magic Potion, by Smart Chic Olena and out of Remedys Magic Potion, is owned by Kenneth Banks of Schulenburg, Texas.

Smart Shinetta, by Shining Spark and out of Smart Hickory, has nearly $90,000 in lifetime earnings. The mare and Crawford finished fourth in the 2005 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, and placed third at the 2007 NRCHA Open Stakes. Smart Shinetta is owned by Lyle Lovett.

The 2008 NRCHA Derby Jack & Phoebe Cooke Open Bridle Spectacular Champion will be decided Saturday, June 21, after the rein and cow work.
