Wade Reaney Rides Flo N Blu Boon for 2009 NRCHA Win

Wade Reaney began his Saturday by winning the Open Hackamore title at the 2009 National Reined Cow Horse Association Stakes, held at the Idaho Horse Park in Nampa, Idaho. He finished his day in the same Championship form by piloting Flo N Blu Boon to a score of 657.5 to win the Penny Knight/Coyote Rock Ranch Open Bridle Spectacular - a win that garnered a check for $5,460.

Reaney had begun with a 217 in the herd work - the phase of competition he feels is the mare's strong area. "I just let her do her thing and trusted her. I put my hand down and she just worked. She's always a little different in the rein work, but came through for me tonight," he said. Wade followed his rein work score of 219.5 with a 221 in the cow work. "She's always real good in the fence work. She ran hard and was always in position."

Flo N Blu Boon, by Pretty Boy Boon and out of Lena Over Flo, is owned by Reaney's mother-in-law, Jan Little, and has amassed over $40,000 in earnings. "My mother-in-law is great, and I'm glad she's let me show this mare. I think that this is my last show on her, because I'm pretty sure she's sold," he noted.

NRCHA Hall of Fame inductee Ken Wold rode MC Pepolena Play to win the Reserve Championship for owner Diana Ceresola, of Lodi, California. Their score of 652 earned a check for $4,368. MC Pepolena Play is by Dual Pep and out of Little Nurse Lena, and has lifetime earnings exceeding $35,000.

"We're really excited about doing this well for Diana," noted Ken's wife, Ramona, prior to the awards ceremony.
