05/12/2020 – Though she did not win a Futurity Champion title, German Gina Maria Schumacher provided absolutely the very best performance in the NRHA Non Pro Futurity finals concluded yesterday in Oklahoma City. It had been already a big achievement to qualify 3 horses for the L4 final, but placing 4th, 5th and 6th in the final is unprecedented and rock solid. With CS Tosmarttoberuff [Not Ruf At All] Schumacher posted a 220,0; with Alpha Attraction [Hang Ten Surprize] a 218,5; and with Step N Past Ya [Wimpys Little Step] a 218,0. Her performance was awarded with >$ 66.195 in NRHA earnings. The horses of Schumacher have been trained at the CS Ranch in Texas where NRHA Professional Duane Latimar is responsible for the training program; he has definitely done a solid job.
The L4 Futurity Champion title was won by Mandy McCutcheon with Shining At Nite [Gunners Special Nite], posting a 221,5. The co-Reserve Champion title went to Ronny Lane Colston with Lil Ruf Whizkey [Whizkey N Diamonds] and Tish Fappani with Joes Genes [Lil Joe Cash], both posting a 221,0.
