Kinky Bootz & Shepard Strut To Arbuckle Mountain Victory

Kinky Bootz and Austin Shepard have done it again.

The Dual Rey stallion owned by Glenn Drake, of Napa, California, and the Alabama trainer won their second show of the year Wednesday at the Arbuckle Mountain Futurity.

The Arbuckle Mountain Reserve Championship went to Twice In Santiago and Adan Banuelos, who marked a 226.5. Last year, the daughter of Once In A Blu Boon and Banuelos were the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Futurity Open Reserve Champions.

Their winning 228.5-point run on Feb. 26 in the 4-Year-Old Open came about a month after a triumph in the Augusta Futurity. The two wins pushed the Drake homebred to roughly $40,000 in earnings.

The duo are among several champions crowned at the show, which runs through Saturday, Feb. 29, in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
