Mo Design and Robinson were fourth in the herd work and sixth in the cow work, however it was their second-place finish in the reining that moved them to the top. Robinson will certainly return to the pen once again with Mo Style in the Futurity Open finals on Saturday, Oct. 4. The Intermediate Open Reserve Championship went to Sumkinda Radical (Dual Rey x Sumkinda Pinkcadilac) and Mark Luis. The duo made $15,000 for owner CR Sis LLC with a 647.5 composite rating (220.5 herd/219 rein/208 cow).
