Jay McLaughlin Tops Open Stakes Preliminaries on CD Dee Vee Dee

The field of 87 Open entries at the 2009 National Reined Cow Horse Association Stallion Stakes was narrowed to twenty after a grueling round of competition at the Idaho Horse Park in Nampa, Idaho. Over the first three days of competition, top 4- and 5-year-old cow horses vied for a slot in the clean-slate finals on Sunday, March 29.

Leading the Open field advancing to the finals was Jay McLaughlin, who piloted CD Dee Vee Dee to a 655 composite for owner Carol Rose, of Gainesville, Texas. McLaughlin actually took three horses back to the finals - also riding Shiney Sushi for Rose, and Genuine Masterpiece for Wagonhound Land & Livestock.

The top 20 plus ties advanced to the Open finals, with the bubble score at 640. 627 was the magic number for the nine Intermediate Open riders who also earned a finals berth. Advancing to the Limited Open finals took a score of 614.5.

Anne Reynolds, of King Hill, Idaho, had the high score of 639 in the Non Pro preliminaries on Very Smart Flo Jo, owned by her mother, Joyce Pearson. She earned the second high score on her horse Very Smart Sir, and also the bubble score of 629.5 on Very Smart Cow Pony. All three horses are by Very Smart Remedy.

The top four Intermediate Non Pro riders advanced to the finals, with a score of 611 as the bubble.
