BARREL RACING REPORT - Fast Horses, Fast News since 2007 - Volume 5, Issue 46 www.barrelracingreport.com November 15, 2011 Churchill and A Streak of Rita Crowned Canadian Champs With over $11,000 dollars available in each of 6 rounds and the average this last week, the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton, AB November 9-13, 2011 are a must stop attraction for all professional barrel racers. With that much money up, you know the competition was going to be stiff but could you imagine that on Sunday after noon three ladies would all have the chance to be champion. It was simple, win the final round and you are the Canadian Professional Rodeo Champion. Coming into the Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) Trula Churchill led the standings with $27,092 of earnings. She and her mount, A Streak Of Rita, started off the CFR consistently placing second or third in the first four rounds. Meanwhile, Lisa Lockhart and An Oakie With Cash were getting warmed up. They closed the gap winning Round 2 and then Round 5, the veteran competitor wasn’t going to let Churchill out of her sights. All the while, 2009 Canadian champion Gaylene Buff and Dat Blue Moon were using Round wins 3 & 4 to jump her up into the lead going into that final round. On that final Sunday afternoon the barrels were run from the top to the bottom with a hand rake in between each run. First up was Buff, she ran a fast clean 14.657 and put herself in the drivers seat, they were going to have to bring their best if they wanted a title in Canada. Churchil was next to run, she knew her horse was sitting on a good run and he blew threw the pattern in a quick 14.508. The only thing standing between her now and a championship was the ice cold competitor and 2 Time Canadian Champ Lisa Lockhart. Lockhart laid down a run and the clock read 14.553. It was decided by less than 0.05 seconds, Churchill won the round and the championship. These three combined won 5 out of the 6 rounds and were the top 3 in the average. Only Lindsay Sears and Ima Guy Of Honor with their Round 1 win were able to break the Churchill/Lockhart/ Buff stronghold at the CFR. We caught up with Churchill to find out just a little more about her and her championship.

Churchill: I raised Worm, his mom was a bulldogging horse that went to the 2000 NFR with Chad Cadwell. I was there 30 minutes after he was born and he was dirty and kind of brown colored when I saw him and looked like a worm so I called him Worm. I did all the barrel training on him, Joe Butterfield put 60 days on him as a 2 year old to start him. As a 4 year old, I ran him at Ft Smith, the Cornhusker Futurity, 5 State Breeders Futurity and the Hawki Futurity and he won money at all of them.
