Jordan Larson and Lena Gallo Win CRI/USEF/NRHA Open at NRBC

Jordan Larson and Lena Gallo put together a scorching run on their way to the USEF, CRI, and NRHA Open Championships at the National Reining Breeders Classic Friday, April 18, at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas. It was a first class performance that netted a first place 227 point score.

“He was perfect circling, and stopped real well,” Larson noted after the awards ceremony. “He ran out of air on his stops – but he did really good.”

The Whitesboro, Texas trainer has only been riding the 8-year-old stallion, owned by Lapke Quarter Horses, since January. Prior to that, Lena Gallo had been turned out to pasture for two years. The stallion’s return from his hiatus was to “remind everyone he’s still out there.”

Lena Gallo saw much success in the reining pen with both Todd Crawford and Brent Wright. In fact, prior to his first retirement, the Gallo Del Cielo stallion out of Heavenly Doc had won over $122,000.

So what’s next? “We hope to go to the AQHA World Show, and the Masters. We might be heading to the Open at the Derby, too.”

The CRI Championship paid $2,456, and the $7,154 won for the NRHA Open Championship brought the night’s earnings to $9,610.

Randy Paul rode Sorcerers Apprentice to the NRHA Open Reserve Championship with a score of 226.5. Sorcerers Apprentice, by Colonels Smokin Gun and out of KR Anniegityurgun, received $4,865 for the Reserve title. He is owned by Rancho Oso Rio.

Mr Dual Rey, by Mr Dual Pep and out of Robin Red Rey, was ridden by Craig Schmersal to a score of 226.5, earning the CRI Reserve Championship and $2,084. Mr Dual Rey is owned by Holly Casey.

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.
