Kristi Locatelli Wins 2008 Snaffle Bit Futurity Non Pro Bridle Championship

For the second year in a row, Kristi Locatelli on Imacockadoodledude, and Mike Miller riding Bucks Little Fever, went 1-2 in Non Pro competition at the Snaffle Bit Futurity. Last year, they topped the Non Pro Hackamore, and in 2008, returned to dominate the Non Pro Bridle.

Locatelli and Miller had identical total scores of 291.5 - but the

Boulder Creek, California native's cow work score of 146.5 prevailed. Along

with a $4,480 check, Locatelli collected a Bob's Custom Saddle, sponsored by

Target Constructors, a Gist Silversmiths Champion Buckle, sponsored by Pro

Management, a Cinch monogrammed vest from Wayne Hodges's 4-Star

Trailers/Outlaw Conversions, and Platinum Performance.

"He was good for me in the reining, and then he was really good down

the fence. He boxed really well, and the whole run was good," noted

Locatelli of her run.

Her family had bred Imacockadoodledude, and had planned to sell him

in the NRCHA Select 2-Year-Old Sale, but he was sifted. Brad Buttrey showed

him at the Snaffle Bit Futurity, but he tripped on his second stop in the


But "Dude" still had a shot at big recognition as a Futurity horse -

at the National Reining Horse Association Futurity. "I thought he was such a

cool reiner, and I wanted to take him to Oklahoma City. We wound up winning

the Intermediate Non Pro, and were Reserve in the Non Pro," she noted.

And Dude, by Gallo Del Cielo and out of Taris Velvet, will soon be

showing at another prestigious event - the American Quarter Horse

Association World Championship Show in the reining.

Mike Miller, of Big Piney, Wyoming, rode his former NRCHA Derby

Champion Bucks Little Fever to the Non Pro Bridle Reserve Championship,

pocketing $3,680, and taking home a Cinch monogrammed vest from Wayne

Hodge's 4-Star Trailers/Outlaw Conversions and Platinum Performance. They

marked scores of 145.5 in the rein work, and 146 in the cow work. Bucks

Little Fever is by Playboys Buck Fever and out of Cashs Genie.
