She piloted Tim Kaehr’s Backwoods Smoker to a 220, and then came back three runs later to mark a 218.5 with Jacque Accomazzo’s Reys Hot Wheels. Bosack’s efforts were worth a total of $8,503.

These titles push Bosack’s lifetime earnings past the $30,000 mark. Backwoods Smoker (Lenas Telesis x Docs Angelfish x Doc Bar), who was bred by Dolores Pendola, of Grass Valley, California, elevated his Equi-Stat record to more than $65,000, and Brinkman Ranch LLC-bred Reys Hot Wheels (Dual Rey x Smart Little Beauty x Smart Little Lena) now has more than $150,000 to his name.

At last year’s The Four Sixes/NCHA Western National Championships in Reno, Nevada, Bosack and Backwoods Smoker took home the Reserve title in the $2,000 Limit Rider, so she said she was excited to come back this year and do so well.

“I’m just so happy that I ended up with champion and reserve,” Bosack said after the conclusion of the finals. “It’s been a great 2015 season for me.”
