FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Team FLAIR Barrel Racer Kelly Yates Wins World Title at AQHA World Show
FLAIR LLC, makers of the FLAIR® Equine Nasal Strip, is pleased to announce that Team FLAIR Barrel Racer Kelly Yates won the Junior Barrels World Championship title at The 43rd American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) World Show on Monday November 7, 2011. The 43rd AQHA World Show is being held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Nov. 5-19, 2011. Yates was one of 3,572 total entries during this year’s competition.
Championship mount FIESTA DEL REY (a.k.a. Wizard), is a 2006 chestnut gelding owned and bred by Yates — out of her mare FIREWATER FIESTA by DUAL REY. FIREWATER FIESTA was the 2000 and 2001 AQHA-PRCA Barrel Racing Horse of the Year with $11,084 in Barrel Futurities of America earnings alone. “He’s just extremely special,” Yates said of Wizard. “I call him my knight in shining armor. He just loves it, like she did. It’s not work.” While Yates didn’t take FIESTA DEL REY to many futurities as a four- year old, she says she “…saw something special in him.”
Yates, a member of Team FLAIR Barrel Racing, uses FLAIR strips on all her competition horses to protect their lungs and keep them running their best. Using FLAIR strips on Wizard at the AQHA World Finals as the pair raced toward their Junior Barrel Racing win, Yates said of her horse, “He’s just been an awesome horse. I’m very proud of him.”
