The Euro 83,750-added IRHA/NRHA Derby Open finals attracted a large crowd on Saturday night where the horses and riders showcased the sport of Reining at its best. Making the finals all the more thrilling were the champions: winning the Euro 32,000-added Derby Level 4 Open were Gennaro Lendi and Marilyn Monwhoa after posting a 224.
Owned by Vittorio Rabboni, the 6-year-old mare by Smart Spook and out of Caramel Creme Command (by Boomernic) was bred in the US by Tammy Thompson Dyer and shipped to Italy for the 2013 NRHA European Derby where Lendi showed her. This is the pair’s first major win. “I’ve always believed in this mare and she really deserves this title,” said Gennaro following the awards presentation.
