What's Happening Around All Star Performance Horses
DECEMBER 2013 - Miss Silver Gun and Matt finished their stellar show year with a bang to bring home the Reserve Intermediate Open Affiliate Championship title home to Oregon.
We have been blessed with great horses and wonderful clients and are very thankful for all of their support. Here's to a blessed 2014!
OCTOBER 2013 - The West Coast Reining Horse Association held the affiliate finals for the Northwest region at the beautiful Murieta Equine Complex in Rancho Murieta, CA. Again, Matt and Miss Silver Gun made a strong showing early in the week, taking the win in the Open and Intermediate Open classes as well as the Open Maturity. The next stop for this talented mare is the Affiliate Finals Championship show in OKC held during the NRHA futurity.
AUGUST 2013 - The Big Sky Classic is one of our favorite shows of the year, and this year didn't disappoint! Lots of exhibitors, great prizes and good added money made for a stellar show. Matt and Miss Silver Gun, kicked off the week by winning the Intermediate Open class and taking Reserve in the Open Maturity. Congrats to Amanda Antifaev and Shiners Lena Dust on their Championship run. The Big Sky Classic Open Futurity was held Saturday night in front of an enthusiastic audience. Late in the draw, Matt and Cashn Big Muddy Chex owned by Vicki and Dennis Turin, laid down a pretty run to take the win in both Level 4 and Level 2. That now puts Nitro's earnings over $7,000! Next stop for this talented colt is OKC!
JULY 2013- Well futurity season is finally here and it's off to a great start! Matt marked a 220 in the prelims at the RMRHA Summerslide aboard, Dennis and Vicki Turin's standout colt, Cashn Big Muddy Chex. Their high marks earned them third place in the Level 4, Level 3 and the Stallion Stakes, while earning second in the Level 2. We can't wait to see what the rest of the futurity season brings! A big thank you goes out to Dennis and Vicki Turin for their support and camaraderie!
The Luc MacGregor Memorial Derby was a hot show, both in and out of the arena! The temperatures were high and so were the scores for the All Star Performance Horses line up. Matt won both slates of Open classes and the Open Maturity, aboard Tamarack Ranch's newest addition, Miss Silver Gun. Miss Silver Gun, comes to us with an impressive record and a history of good runs with her previous owner, Otto Stanislaw and trainer, Martin Muehlstatter. True to her talent, this weekend was no different! It's truly a blessing to have a mare of her caliber in our barn and we thank Tamarack Ranch for the opportunity to show such a talented individual.
Matt also tied for the Co-Championship in the Open Derby aboard another standout mare owned by Tamarack Ranch, Spooks N Sparks. More fondly know as Skittles, the pretty sorrel mare drug her tail to the tune of a 146 to pick up a win in the Level 4 and Level 2 Open Derby. The weekend also included wins in the Novice Horse Open classes for Matt and a successful maiden voyage on the promising three year old mare, Surprise Im A Chick.
