Willie J Rey and Walt Erwin were on their A-game Friday night in Augusta.
The trainer and the 5-year-old gelding (Dual Rey x Cat Black I x Smooth As A Cat) marked a 220 to win the 5/6-Year-Old Open at the Augusta Futurity, topping a talented field of limited-aged event horses during the finals held Jan. 18.
The gelding named in honor of co-owner Denise Seiz’s late father, Jim Williams, is now the earner of more than $55,000.
Erwin and Seiz talked to Quarter Horse News about what proved to be an adventurous run in Augusta.
