Sharri Gallagher Wins 2009 NRCHA Stakes Novice Non Pro Bridle

Competing at her first National Reined Cow Horse Association premier event, Sharri Gallagher won the Novice Non Pro Bridle Championship and in the process claimed the Penny Knight/Coyote Rock Ranch Non Pro Bridle Spectacular Reserve Championship. Her partner for the event was 6-year-old Farranic, by Reminic and out of Farrah Oak.

Gallagher used to work full time as an accountant, but cut down her workload in order to show more at larger NRCHA events. "I hadn't been able to devote a lot of time to showing and working with my horse," she said. "Now I'll be able to really start going to more shows."

The Surrey, British Columbia modestly gave credit for her win to her trainer, Cayley Wilson. "I really want to thank him and my friend Sarah Sherman. We've been here and having a great time - and this just makes it even better," she explained.

Gallagher's take for the event was $1,560 and a CR Morrison NRCHA trophy in the Novice Non Pro Bridle, and an additional $1,836 for the Reserve Championship in the Penny Knight/Coyote Rock Ranch Non Pro Bridle Spectacular.

Becky Lynch, of Ulm, Montana, earned the Novice Non Pro Bridle Reserve Championship on her horse Fairlea Zannie Jay, by Colonel Pic and out of Zannie Jay Lena. The win garnered a paycheck for $1,170.

The NRCHA Stakes concludes Sunday, March 29, with the NRCHA Stakes finals. The event is held at the Idaho Horse Park in Nampa, Idaho, and began on March 25.
