The Hollywoodstinseltown Open Futurity took the spotlight on Saturday at The Tulsa Reining Classic 2018 on Saturday, held at Expo Square in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Big stops, fast spins and flashy horses were showcased in the open futurity in the Ford Truck Arena where 116 entries battled for championship honors.
Duane Latimer turned in a crowd-pleasing run to score a 222.5 aboard Oh Starry Nite for owner XCS Ranch to claim the Hollywoodstinseltown Level 4 Open Futurity championship. Oh Starry Nite is 2015 mare by Gunners Special Nite and out of Chic Olena Starbuck and earned $15,116 for her efforts in the futurity.
“It’s a good start [to the futurity season]. The destination is the fall at the NRHA Futurity, but she was excellent,” Latimer said. “I was very happy with her.”
Latimer said that going into the Tulsa Reining Classic 2018 he had confidence in his mount, however, he added that you never know until you’re in the show pen.
“I thought, I hoped that she would be solid and she was solid. She turned good, I thought she stopped excellent – but that didn’t surprise me,” he said. “I can’t pick her apart at all, she was excellent.”
