Chics Smokingun and Morey Fisk NRHA Open World Champions 2019
24/12/2019 – The curtain has fallen. Canadian Morey Fisk, for many years already resident in Europe, has piloted the 11-year-old stallion Chicks Smokingun [Colonels Smoking Gun] owned by Sabine Schmid (GER) to the NRHA Open World Champion title 2019 adding $ 33.830 in NRHA earnings to the stallions record. For every rider this is the crown on the job and a huge accomplishment.
A no less huge accomplishment, unique in history, is reached by Belgian Ann Fonck. With the 8-year-old mare Spook N Perla [Smart Spook] owned by Golden Paint Ranch (BEL) Fonck claims the NRHA Open Reserve World Champion 2019 title adding $ 30.688 to the mares record; with the 8-year-old gelding Made In Walla [Walla Walla Whiz] owned by Sabine Lisec (AUT) she places 3rd in the Top 10 world rankings adding $ 29.324 to the geldings record; and with the 5-year-old mare Gunners Specialolena [Gunners Special Nite] owned by Diego dalla Gassa (ITA) she places 4th on the NRHA world rankings adding $ 27.564 in NRHA earnings to the mares record. This position does not count towards Top 10 standings though because the earnings have been achieved at only 2 shows. That’s what makes it extra special.
