2016 NFR Barrel Racing: Round 3

 NFR Round 3: Barrel Racing


How about Round 3 y’all?!! I mean HOLY SMOKING RUNS! I don’t even know how to explain it! Round 3 was beyond intense and extremely exciting. Not to mention fast, and by that I mean you had to be above a 13.82 to be in the money! Honestly, I don’t remember seeing that many 13 second times in the last few years in one go around! Absolutely incredible! I’m still in shock! The horses are fantastic this year and their jockeys are seriously incredible! I’m having a hard time picking out a favorite duo, because I love them all. I swear this is probably my favorite NFR so far and it is only going to get more competitive! The horses seem to really love the ground this year! Kudo’s to the grounds crew! Keep up the good work!

Congratulations Lisa and Louie!



As I mentioned above, this was a smoking fast run! These horses were literally on fire last night! First out was Kimmie Wall and Foxy. They made a heartbreaking run where they knocked over a barrel (+5)  but ran a 13.56! Lisa and Louie came out 3rd in the round. When Louie ran hard and snapped around that 1st barrel you could tell their run was going to be fast. Lisa and Louie stayed consistent and made 2 more perfect turns around the 2nd and 3rd barrels. They ended up running the fast time of the night with a 13.72!


This is Lisa’s 10th time running at the NFR! She has come close to winning the world championship title before but hasn’t made it, do you think this could be the year she will do it? She is about $50,000 behind Mary Burger, with 7 more rounds left, I think she might have a chance! Louie looked amazing last night, I expect him to get stronger and stronger the rest of the week! They might need to look out for Sherry Cervi and Arson though, they came in close behind with a 13.73 winning 2nd for the go round! Jackie Ganter and R came in close to Sherry with a 13.74. Seriously guys?! How much closer can you get for the top three not to mention the rest of the times for the night?! This is a major horse race! Round 4 is tonight!
