NRHA Breeders Award 2006 The Breeders Futurity will also decide
who will become NRHA Breeders Award Champion 2006. This ‘breeder’s
Oscar’ was created in 2003 based on the idea of two well known breeders:
Jutta Weckmüller of Buena Vista Ranch (Home of Dox Cash N
Hand) and Dr. Claudia and Andreas Mamerow of Trainshill
Ranch (Home of Nics Peppy Train). The Award goes to the most successful
breeders of the Breeders Derby and the Breeders Futurity of one
year. The more horses of one breeder win money in these two shows,
the more likely he will become Champion. So far, the Award was won
by Michael Blaschke (AUT), Lia Ferrarini and Lucio Ferrarini (ITA)
