June 22nd, 2011

Shannon Hall

Peptolistic and rider Shannon Hall scored 223.5 points on Tuesday, June 21, in Oklahoma City to win the Non-Pro 4-Year-Old Open and $7,500. Nievas and her owner-breeder, Ed Dufurrena, claimed reserve and $5,000 with 221.5 points.

This was the first time either horse had competed in a limited age event finals. Nievas was, however, a finalist (12th) in the 4-Year-Old Non-Pro with Brandon Dufurrena on Sunday.

Peptolistic’s owner, Tim Drummond, Pawhuska, Okla, bred the Peptoboonsmal-sired colt out of Moms Stylish Socks, whose dam is a full sister to Freckles Merada, an all-time leading maternal grandsire of cutting horses. Drummond was also a 5/6-Year-Old Non-Pro finalist on Stylish Lizzie, whose dam is a half-sister to Freckles Merada and whose sire, Lizzys Gotta Player, is out of Lizzielena, a full sister to the dam of Freckles Merada.

Nievas also connects to Freckles Merada through his sire, Cats Merada, who is out of the Freckles Merada daughter Merada Lena.

Dualin Puddy Tap, ridden by Steve Oehlhof for Gordon Sevig, won the 5/6-Year-Old Open and $7,500 with 222 points. Shimmerz and his owner-rider Casey Green scored 220.5 points for reserve. This was the first limited age event win for Dualin Puddy Tap, a 5-year-old Dual Pep son who had earned $41,180 in previous events.

Shimmerz, a 5-year-old Smart Lil Ricochet son with career earnings of $21,000, is a half-brother, out of the Dual Pep daughter Zee Dualy, to $225,000 earner Smooth Asa Zee.
