The Congress NRHA Level 3 and 4 Open Reining Futurity finals packed the Celeste Center Saturday night, as spectators gathered to watch some of the most promising 3-year-olds in the country compete for large purses and prizes. No one was disappointed.

Riding at just the fourth PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Unleash The Beast event of his career, Alan de Souza (Taubate, Brazil) captured his first ever premier series event win in Minneapolis, Minnesota, inside Target Center, victorious at the Minneapolis Invitational.

Day No. 2 of the National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity ®, presented by Metallic Cat, saw brilliant performances by the top 3-year-old equine tri-athletes in the country as the Open reined work preliminaries came to a close in John Justin Arena at Will Rogers Memorial Center. Each owner and rider team is gunning for their share of the total event payout, which is expected to exceed $1.2 million. The Open Futurity Champion will leave Fort Worth, Texas, $125,000 richer upon the conclusion of the Finals on October 19.

Last to go, Alvarez Moya clinches it with a superb clear. There was a mixture of joy and regret for the Spanish team after winning tonight’s Challenge Cup at the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Final on home ground at the Real Club de Polo in Barcelona, Spain.

At the first PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Unleash The Beast event in Minneapolis in 13 years, Jess Lockwood (Volborg, Montana) earned his league-best fourth 15/15 Bucking Battle victory of the season, winning the special round held in tandem with the Minneapolis Invitational inside Target Center.
