CM | Reining – 50 riders and their horses went into the qualifying round of the NRHA Euro Futurity 2017 in Cremona (Italy) . The Non Pro Futurity, like the Open Futurity, is open to four year old horses enrolled in the NRHA European Nomination Program.
Topping the European Futurity Level 4 Non Pro Go-Round with a score of 217,5 was Edoardo Bernardelli (Italy) and RS Gaudi Jac only 0.5 points ahead of Austrian Anna Lisec and Gunners Nite Slider (Gunners Special Nite x Wind Her Up Chic), owned and nominated by her mother Sabine Lisec and Chuck Klipfel. Manuel Bonzano and Sunburstsmrknowitall (215,5) placed third.
The difficult pattern 8 proved quite a challenge: „Starting the pattern with a spin in the centre is quite difficult for our „kit“, but he was really good today. He stayed with Anna the whole time, his stops were bombastic. The score of 217,0 is well deserved.“, says Sabine Lisec to EQWO.net.
Julia Gaupmann (Lower Austria) and her mare ARC MS Whiz also made it straight into the finals Level 2 & 3 (210,0). Daniela Ratschew and Guns Still Smokin qualified for level 2, Juergen Pritz qualified for level 3.
On Wednesday Non Pro riders have the chance to win a ticket for the finals in the consolation run. This also applies to Austrians Alexander Nestelberger and Copycop, Daniela Ratschew and Guns Still Smokin for level 3 and Juergen Pritz with Rose of Mercedes for level 4.
On Thursday there will be a Paid Warm-Up for the Futurity Finalists before the Non Pro riders will fight for the NRHA Futurity Champion title on Friday.
