Saturday, July 16 in the Mustang Arena at the Built Ford Tough Livestock Expo Square, Tulsa, OK 11 competitors braved the 7th straight day of 100+ degrees to compete in the ApRHA Derby – 6 Non-Pros and 5 in the Open Division.  Added money in the Open topped out at $1,500.00 and the Non-Pro came in at an impressive $2,000.00!  Judge Don Flohr’s choice of pattern was #5.  And just like Wednesday night in the Juniors, Terry Thompson (Aubrey, Texas) showed why he has over 250 National and World Titles – laying down an impressive score of 70 1/2 aboard Steven Minvielle’s horse, Whiz N Onasign, to earn him the top spot in the ApRHA Open Derby division.  Earning the Reserve Championship in the Open was an equally impressive score of 70, awarded to the team of Tinker Turner (Booneville, Arkansas) and Playboy Haidaway, owned by Candice Holland Turner.

In the ApRHA Derby Non-Pro Division, Jane Cairo (Miami, Florida) aboard Duntattooedavaquero and Paul Stewart, (Cooper City, Florida) on Justins Lena Doc shared the spotlight of the Championship with a tie at 69 1/2!  Splitting the money and flipping for the buckle, both competitors couldn’t have asked for a better way to close the exciting week out at the 64th Annual National ApHC Show!
