Big Time horses, Big time Purses
Not Ruf At All and Jason Vanlandingham
are NRHA Futurity Champions
Not Ruf At All and NRHA Professional Jason Vanlandingham (Whiteboro, Texas) marked the score to beat from draw number 2 in the second section of the finals. Their 225.5 held through nearly 30 more runs and they claimed the level 4 open championship. To date, he has earned more than $31,000 including championships at the Hollywoodstinseltown and High Roller Reining Classic Futurities. The win tonight added another $165,000 to that tally, including the $8,250 nominator incentive for Petra Zeitler Connor. Not Ruf At All was consigned in the 2012 NRHA / Markel Insurance Futurity Sale. Vaughn Zimmerman owns the stallion that is by A Sparkling Vintage and out of All Ruffed Up (by Lil Ruf Peppy). Not Ruf At All’s earnings unofficially moved Zimmerman onto the NRHA Million Dollar Owner list.
