The BO Ranch Non Pro Maturity is a Thrill!

With a review following the last horse in the second section of the BO Ranch Non Pro Maturity, it was uncertain who would take home the coveted title of the inaugural event.
Once the judges gave their final verdict, it was determined that the two riders would make it it the top of the rankings: Edoardo Bernardelli and Dries Verschueren.

The duo made up of NRHA Two Million Dollar Rider Bernard Fonck and Shiners Voodoo took the lead in the qualifying go round of the $26,000-added BO Ranch Level (L)4 Open Maturity. Draw #1 in the second section of the Finals, the pair performed to a 224.5 and their score held until the end which secured them the title. The 6-year-old stallion by Shiners Voodoo DR out of BR China Rose, owned by Kimberly Wegner, added the Open Maturity Championship to his accolades and $55,500 NRHA Lifetime Earnings (LTE). “I started riding this horse at the beginning of this year as my wife, Ann, had three open horses to show so she passed the reins to me,” said the Belgian professional. “He’s a really powerful horse with a lot of talent and I like him a lot. He did good for me here from day one and I must say that the facility and organization here made it great for us to show.”
