Craig’s Spin on Derby Red Tape

CS NRHADerbyCraig Schmersal at the NRHA DerbyI just returned home from the NRHA Derby, where I showed FS Taris Walla Whiz to an ancillary Open class championship and Redhot Walla to 8th in the Level 4 Open Derby. Both of these horses are owned by Tim Anderson. He has been a longtime customer for me, and I am so happy we had such great success this week!

I can honestly say this is one of the hardest things as a trainer – at least for me – to do.
