Cremona, November 13 — Held in Cremona, Italy, on November 9-18, the 38th edition of the $600.000-added IRHA/IRHBA/NRHA Futurity presented by DeNiroBootCo today offered the Rabboni Performance Horses $51.360-added IRHA/NRHA 4-year-old Non Pro Futurity qualifier as well as the GD Performance Horses Non Pro Consolation for the $119.840-added IRHA/IRHBA/NRHA 3-year-old Non Pro Futurity where five combinations earned a spot for the Finals which will be held on Friday, 17.

In both the $27.285-added Level (L)4 and $14.044-added L3, Carlo Ambrosini performed to a 215 with Bliss Bobette San (In Like Flinn x Docs Steady San x Steadys Dude) between the reins. “We purchased this mare when she was 2 and she has a huge heart,” he emphasized. “I was a little worried when I went in today since I didn’t do very well in the 3-year-old Futurity qualifier and was afraid to make mistakes, but I’m very happy because she did really well today, and for this I would like to thank my family first for their huge support and also [Professionals] Giuseppe Prevosti and Cristian Dalla Pozza who I train my horses with. In the arena my mare did everything I asked her and she has a lot left for the finals. I made a little mistake during the first run down, but she stopped anyway and didn’t betray my trust and now I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the finals.” The pretty mare is owned by Ambrosini QH and was bred by Elisa Bregoli.

Yet another young rider made the top of the rankings, this time in the $6.019-added L2 division: 16-year-old Antonina Zarnawska of Poland who closed her performance with a 214 riding Hollywhizzybroncogun (Lean With Hollywood x CSG Flashyboom x NRHA Million Dollar Sire Colonels Shining Gun) owned and bred by Izabella Zarnawska.  “Her run was amazing and I’m really happy because she performed all her maneuvers really well,” said a smiling Zarnawska. “She’s so talented and it’s the first time she’s really calm in the show arena. I really enjoyed this run and both me and my trainer [Łukasz Czechowicz] are thrilled. This is the first horse that we bred, so my mum [Izabella Zarawska] and I are over the moon. The plan for the finals is to stay calm and go a little faster in the circles.

Leading the $4.012 L1 division is young Elias Kompatscher with his own Spookly Spark (Spark N Whiz x PL Spooks Dunit Whiz) under the saddle. The bay stallion and Kompatscher scored a 211.5 for the lead. “My horse was great and I'm really happy with how he performed, even though I made a mistake during the go; but in the end it went well. I have been riding him for a year now and it is giving me a lot of satisfaction, let's hope that the final goes well even if I am already happy with the way things went!

The Numbers:

Level 4 - entries 35 - finalists 14
Level 3 - entries 46 - finalists 15
Level 2 - entries 62 - finalists 18
Level 1 - entries 42 - finalists 15
