Super Series Group Payout Crosses Half Million Dollar Mark After 2015 Texas Pre-Green and Texas Hunter Breeding Final Championships!
The 2015 Super Series Group programs wrapped up Friday night with the fourth annual Texas Pre-Green Final Championship, launching the Super Series Group's Texas Pre-Green program's payout over the Half a Million Dollar mark.
First annual Texas Hunter Breeding Final Champions were crowned in four divisions to yearlings, two year olds, and three year olds on the line, as well as the three year old freestyle performance horses and topped off by a ringside brunch, sponsored by Olde Oaks Farm. The inaugural event was very well attended and awarded more than $16,500 in payout.
Best Young Horse honors were awarded to LF Eau My, owned by Mary Jane Todd-Day and handled by Rob Moyar, while Regence, owned by Colleen McQuay, bred by Amanda Taylor, and ridden by Hannah Evans, took the $7,500 Three year old Freestyle Performance class.
Web casted live for the second year in a row, the fourth annual Texas Pre-Green Final Championship was enjoyed both at Great Southwest Equestrian Center and worldwide via superseriesgroup.com. The $28,500 prize money brought the Super Series Group over the significant half million dollar payout mark for the program, with plans of reaching the million dollar mark within the next few years. Will Roberts aboard Alta Basaldua's Farrah bested the field with an impressive composite score of 179. Sponsors enjoyed a beautiful ringside dinner provided by Great Southwest Equestrian Center, sponsored by Ralph & Audry Gates. First annual sire bonuses were awarded to leading sires of both Texas Hunter Breeding Final Championship contestants and Texas Pre-Green Final Championship contestants. Enrolled sires Shine and Cabana both earned paychecks, with a total of $2,100 paid to nominators cumulatively.
Year-end series leading bonuses were given in both the Texas Pre-Green and Texas Hunter Breeding Super Series. Leading Texas Pre-Green rider Peter Pletcher earned over $23,000 during the 2015 season. One of Pletcher's mounts, Romeo, owned by Shadyside Farm, was leading horse with annual earnings of nearing $7,000. Leading owner honors went to MTM Farm, earning nearly $9,000 this year. Take2 Second Chance Thoroughbred Incentive provided bonuses to leading owner and rider of the Texas Pre-Green Series' leading Thoroughbred, Top Cat, owned by Jo Jo White and ridden by Stacie Goodson.
Amongst Texas Hunter Breeding enrollees, LF Eau My took leading yearling, Naquita, owned by Debra Gaffey, was the leading two year old, and High Shine, owned by Olde Oaks Farm, took leading three year old honors. Super Series Group partners Colleen McQuay, Patrick Rodes, Pauline Cook, and Peter Pletcher extend their sincere gratitude to all of those who have participated in and supported the Texas Pre-Green and new Texas Hunter Breeding programs. The success of their programs is largely due to the fantastic support of the Hunter industry! For program information, series standings, and enrollment information, visit www.superseriesgroup.com.
