Robert J. Smith III and Shiners Red Pepper Top Non Pro Rein Work

Competing in a hackamore, Robert J. Smith III and Shiners Red Pepper posted the high rein work score for the Circle Y Ranch Southwest Reined Cow Horse Association Non Pro Derby. Smith and the Shining Spark son out of Little Lena Lady marked a 146.5, boosting their composite score to 284.5.

It is unsurprising that the pair would have such a high score in the reining phase of competition as they have been competitive at National Reining Horse Association approved events.

In October, Smith and Shiners Red Pepper captured the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Amateur division Championship, and qualified for both the Non Pro and Intermediate Non Pro finals.

Although the high rein work score gave Smith a boost, Tammy Johnston and Quanah Dual hold on to the top spot of the leader board. A 142.5 in the rein work, combined with the 144 they scored the day before in the cutting gives them a half-point edge over the closest competitor. Quanah Dual is by Dual Reward and out of Quanah Leah.

In the Amateur division, Karla Rogers and BJ Chula Mula lead the pack. Rogers and the Chula Dual stallion, out of BJ Tari, marked a 141 to maintain their division lead with a 286. However, Andrea Fasani marked the high rein work score of 142 on Troubled Gangster. Troubled Gangster, by Gangster Chic and out of Shesa Commander Cody, was a Non Pro finalist at the 2007 Snaffle Bit Futurity.

The Circle Y Ranch SRCHA Derby concludes Monday, February 18, with the cow work. The Derby has over $145,000 added for the 117-horse field.

The National Reined Cow Horse Association, the governing body of cow horse competition, is responsible for promoting the sport, insuring high standards of competition and educating members and the public about the history and tradition of the cow horse. Through the support of a Corporate Partner family that includes Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers and Outlaw Conversions, Bob's Custom Saddles, Cinch, Inc., Classic Equine, Gist Silversmiths, MD Barns, Platinum Performance, Inc., Nutrena, Quarter Horse News & Performance Horse magazine, the Peppermill Hotel/Resort, Fort Dodge West Nile Innovator, Rios of Mercedes, Merial products ULCERGARD and GASTROGARD, Great American Insurance Company and the Silver Legacy Hotel, the association works to keep the vaquero tradition alive in today’s equine industry.
