One day after taking the reserve championship in the $15,000 Novice Non-Pro, Lauren Chartier and Spoonful Of Tears bounced back for a 224-point win in the $5,000 Novice Non-Pro finals at the 6666 Ranch NCHA Eastern National Championships in Jackson, Mississippi, Thursday.  CD To The Max and Michelle Reichart finished second with a 219.

Spoonful Of Tears was a finalist in both Novice Non-Pro classes last year at the Eastern Nationals, as well as being a Non-Pro finalist at the NCHA Classic Challenge, Cotton Stakes and Tunica Classic last year. He has earned more than $49,000.

Chartier was notching up her fifth Eastern Nationals championship. She’s won the Non-Pro twice, with Spoonful Of Tears maternal grandsire Widows Freckles, and with Cees Little Poo, along with three Novice Non-Pro titles.
