CP Private Dancer, a 2006 AQHA sorrel mare owned by Sheila Hill of St. Anthony, ID, and ridden and trained by Vauna Walker of Pingree, ID, captured the 17th Annual Barrel of Gold Futurity on Aug. 29 in Helena, MT. She posted a time of 18.258 during the first round and ran the barrels at the Lewis and Clark Co. Fairgrounds in 17.721 for a time of 35.979.

Although the mare only had a 79 speed index on the track, she has found her place in barrel racing with earlier victories, as well, at the Sand Cup Futurity and the Red Desert Classic Futurity.

The mare, by Dash Ta Fame and out of Crystal Cashanova by Sir Cashanova, was bred and raised by Cody Hyde of Blackfoot, ID. She carries a double-bred Dash for Cash pedigree.

In 2008, Walker won the Barrel of Gold on Two Dash to Fame that was another horse that came from Hyde’s CP Performance Horses.

The futurity was sponsored by the CSR Equine Sports Medicine Team of Bozeman, MT. The ranch gave a hand-tooled breast collar that was handcrafted by Three Forks Saddlery. During the two-day event, the state-of-the-art sports medicine trailer was on hand with veterinarians and technicians to provide medical assistance to the riders’ horses.

In its 17th year, the Barrel of Gold was started in Helena by Raelene Konzak. Judy Wagner, who lived in Helena at the time, and Janet Erickson were also among the founding organizers.

In 2005, Kitty Herrin took over the management of Montana’s only barrel racing futurity which drew contestants this year from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Utah and from Alberta, Canada. Kitty had been serving as secretary of the Western Montana Cowgirls.

By then, Wagner had moved to the Billings area with Montana Silversmiths and Janet was too busy with her work and training horses, Herrin said.

Along with the futurity, open and amateur categories, the jackpots at the Barrel of Gold continue to attract entries from throughout the region.

The major sponsor was Jill Lane Quarter Horses of Fort Benton. Other sponsors, besides Copper Spring Ranch’s CSR Sports Medicine Team included Merial, Response Products and Montana Silversmiths.
