In 1988, leading National Reined Cow Horse Association professional Zane Davis won a National High School Rodeo Championship at the Colorado State Fairgrounds in Pueblo. Twenty five years later, he returned to the same venue to win the National Reined Cow Horse Association Hackamore Classic Open Championship aboard Rubys Radar (One Time Pepto x Ruby Bagonia x Peppy San Badger), owned by Billie Filippini.
Davis and Rubys Radar held the high preliminary score coming into the fence work-only finals. They were last to work, a draw position that suits the 2009 Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Champion horseman just fine.
"I've had real good luck being last. When I won the Futurity I was last. I like last," Davis said.
