What an exciting weekend across the Futurities at Bauhinia and Winton
DRISCOLL PASTORAL CO & MCINTYRE CATTLE CO BAUHINIA FUTURITY
A huge thanks to the Bauhinia committee, especially Mark Driscoll and Cameron McIntyre, for sponsoring the first Futurity event at Bauhinia.
It was a remarkable event Friday afternoon, with the McIntyre cattle running well for the youngsters. Thanks to Cameron, Janha and families for donating the cattle, as well as the other donors.
The big movers and shakers were of course one of the regions greatest hands with young horses, Les Stewart, and his 2 entries Ivy and Dreamgirl.
Ivy firmed up her position with another spectacular 88 and Dreamgirl's 3rd run in the series with an 86 brings her into 2nd place on the leaderboard.
A real surpriser was Norm Barraclough and "Kitty" (THE CATS HAT), who Norm purchased from Cameron Parker at the Elders Performance Horse Sale last November.
By Cat N A Hat, Kitty and Norm lined up an 83 at Bauhinia to put him into 6th place.
Drafting for around 10 years, Norm's still a maiden rider and is the front runner for the Trevor Scott Saddle's Non-Pro FT Western Stock Fender saddle
It's an exciting next few weeks in the Future Star's Series with 11 events due until the Final at Clermont in June.
