Fonck and Künstner-Mantl Take Ancillary Wins

Bernard Fonck & Cattlemans Cash Top the €5,000-added Roleski Open 7 & Up

Tina Künstner-Mantl Wins €800-added Arcese Novice Horse Non Pro Level 2

 

NRHA welcomed the fourth day of showing at the 2013 NRHA European Futurity & NRHA Show. The Roleski NRHA Open 7 & up was won by Bernard Fonck and Cattlemans Cash. The 7-year-old palomino stallion by Wimpys Little Step and out of Trophys Peppy Jay had a beautiful run scoring a  221.5. Cattlemans Cash was trained by Bernard Fonck who won the 2009 French and Belgian Futurity with this horse, placed third at the 2010 NRHA European Futurity Level 4 Open and was Reserve Champion at the NRHA Breeders Futurity. The stallion now has $38,505 NRHA LTE.“He is a really good horse and felt great today,” said Bernard. “I showed him as a 3- and 4-year-old, then skipped a season as we took him to the breeding barn as a 5-year-old. Last year, I showed him a couple of times and now it’s the European Futurity. I really like this 7 & Up class as it gives older horses another chance of being shown other than in open classes.”

 

Nina Lill and GR Hug A Jewel (Solanoswarlee Boy x Hug A Freckle) placed second scoring a 219.5. The mare, bred by Georg Ripper and owned by Vanety Korbus, is a past NRHA Breeders Derby Open Champion with Alex Ripper in the saddle. “I’m really happy,” said Nina following the class. “I’d never managed to show her so well until today. She’s a great mare and I’ll be showing her in the Open here and will try to go a bit faster!”

 

With a score of 214.5, Austrian Tina Künstner-Mantl and her JP El Whizwon the NRHA Novice Horse Non Pro Level 2 in a field of 37 riders. The 4-year-old American Quarter Horse gelding is by Heza Sure Whiz, the stallion that Tina rode to an NRHA Non Pro Reserve World Championship. With his dam, Lady Lena Twist, Tina won the FEI bronze medal. JP El Whiz was bred by Jac Point Quarter Horses. Tina trained the horse herself mostly and was Level 4 Non Pro Reserve Champion at the 2012 Austrian Reining Horse Association Western Star 3-Year-Old Futurity with this horse, as well as level 4 non pro division third place at the NRHA Germany Breeders Snaffle Bit Futurity.  “JP El Whiz is a horse you can always rely on, and he was so nice again in this class,” said Tina after her run. “I’m happy we won. It is a pity we did not make it into the Non Pro Futurity finals as we spun five times.”

 

Two riders tied for second place scoring a 213.5: Thomas Ramstorfer aboard Colonel Snapple (Mr Snapple x Colonel Mistress) and Gina Maria aboard Topsail McJac (Topsail Whiz x RS Feona McJac).
