Jake Telford Wins NRCHA Stakes Open Two Rein on Starlights Finale

Jake Telford, of Caldwell, Idaho, piloted Starlights Finale to a score of 292.5 - winning the National Reined Cow Horse Association Stakes Open Two Rein Championship. Along with a check for $1,770 and a CR Morrison trophy, the win garnered even more - the chance for Telford to say "I told you so." Starlights Finale's owner, Newt White of Santa Fe, New Mexico, had been planning to retire the talented mare, and had already bred her to CD Olena.

But Telford was sure she still had more winning left to do. "She was pretty hard to show in the Hackamore, but I was sure she would be a great Two Rein horse. I just wanted her to have a chance, and I kept after him," he said. "So I'm glad this worked the way it did - I look very smart! I'm glad we'll still have time to show her more before she foals."

Starlights Finale is by Grays Starlight and out of Fasa Little Lena. The 6-year-old mare has over $25,000 in career earnings.

Gainesville, Texas, trainer Jay McLaughlin earned the Reserve Championship on Shiners Quixote, by Shining Spark and out of JRC Quixote O Lena, for owner Carol Rose. The title added $1,475 to 7-year-old Shiners Quixote's lifetime earnings.

Joe Stone, of Clements, California, earned the Non Pro Two Rein Championship, a CR Morrison trophy, and $710 on his horse, Sugs Stylish. Sugs Stylish is by Playin Stylish and out of Sugar Bo Hickory.

The NRCHA Stakes is held March 25-29 at the Idaho Horse Park in Nampa, Idaho. Along with the premier Limited Age Event, the show also hosts a full slate of NRCHA approved classes.
