Day 4 at Rio Grande

In the final heat GPCHF Dash for Cash were Eric Rever (Sky Eye Measurement), Sean DeBolt (Glacier Ridge Ventures) and Ron Bolin 1 (Borek Construction). It was a good race but a knocked barrel prevented the Rio Grande Rocket, Ron Bolin (Borek Construction) from winning the GPCHF Dash at his hometown show, leaving the purse for Sean DeBolt (Glacier Ridge Ventures).

Day 3 at Rio Grande

The Manning crew clean up!!

Well, it's official now. Eric Rever ( Sky eye Measurements) is hot this year. He's on a roll and he is hard to beat. He had worked hard training his horses, tweaking his feed program and babying those athletes in his barn. It has paid off in a big way. Tonight Eric won the Aggregate and the title of 2015 Rio Grande Champion.

Our 2nd champion is another man from Manning, Todd McCracken (Silvertip Oilfield Services). Tonight Todd McCracken won the Aggregate for the Chariots and the title of 2015 Rio Grande Chariot Champion.
