Derby Open

The Derby Open offered the chance for more seasoned horses to prove their worth, and Brother Jackson, owned by John Semanik and shown by Zane Davis, finally got his chance at the spotlight.

“I’m happy to end his limited-age event career with a win,” Davis said, noting the stallion has made the Open finals at every major event; however, a championship has always eluded him. “He’s always been the bridesmaid and never the bride, until now.”

Davis piloted the Peptoboonsmal son out of a daughter of High Brow Cat to three phenomenal scores: 150 in the rein work; 148 in the herd and 149 down the fence. The win added $7,740 to Brother Jackson’s lifetime earnings of $64,135.
