6666 NRHA Derby 2023 Payout Predicted to Surpass $1.5 Million

Recognizing the popularity of the 4-year-old Stakes division and to support its longevity, the NRHA Board decided to add an additional $100,000 beginning in 2023, bringing the total added money of the Tamarack Ranch Open Stakes to $110,000 and $50,000 in the Colston Paving Inc. Non Pro.

5 Point Lead puts Abbie Phillips and Purdy Talker on Top

For the team, this derby championship had a special place in Abby's heart. Phillips and Purdy Talker have been a dynamic duo since the mare's 2-year-old year leading into their $20,000 Non-Pro Co-Reserve Championship at the 2022 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity. After some tough luck at the Teton Ridge Stallion Stakes, Phillips looked forward to showcasing their style and talent at the Derby.
