Fancy Hughes & Kenny Platt Land Their Second Major Win At Brazos Bash

Fancy Hughes & & Kenny PlattThe Brazos Celebration began with an interesting set of finals on Sept. 28 in Weatherford, Texas, with 14 horse-and-rider teams contending for the Futurity Open Championship. The remarkable lineup gave it their best shot, but it was Fancy Hughes and Kenny Platt who triumphed.
Fancy Hughes and Platt, of Fort Lupton, Colo., who just recently took the Idaho Futurity Open Championship just weeks prior to the Brazos Celebration, can be found in hot to the finals after impressive very first and second go-round efforts.

In the second go, Platt and Fancy Hughes marked a 217 to make a composite score of 436 to take the second slot moving into the finals.
With Platt and Fancy Hughes’ recent success under their belts, the anticipation amongst the crowd was apparent as they strolled to the herd 10th in the draw. After the very first nine duos, there was still space to take control of the lead, but Platt and the 3-year-old mare (Thomas E Hughes x Selection Jewels x SR Instant Selection) quickly altered that. Their impressive run was scored a 226, which was sufficient to take the Futurity Open title.
In Idaho, Platt and Fancy Hughes took house a paycheck worth $12,373 for their win. After their Brazos Bash triumph, they gathered a grand total amount of $23,000 for owners Reed and Sheryl McClymont, of Holdrege, Neb., who made the trip to Texas in order to see their homebred mare show.
