ARHA Futurity Champion Open L1 and 2, 3-year-old: Jeremy Ropert & QT Devil Of Heaven

August 24, 2018

The final of the 3-year-old Futurity Open L1 and L2 was won by the Go round leader Jeremy Ropert aboard QT Devil Of Heaven (Dun It On The QT x Moms Lil Ruffian) for owner Jan Tobias Kock. The two scored a 217 claiming the ARHA Futurity Championship both in L2 and L1. The stallion was bred by Michael Jungfer-Schubert.

The young NRHA Professional from France Jeremy Ropert worked for top trainers Craig Schmersal and Brian Bell as well as for Ann and Bernard Fonck. In December 2017 he started working for Rudi Kronsteiner as an assistant trainer. Before this year, Jeremy has mainly shown his own horse. But his 2018 season has been a good one: he won the NRHA Breeders Derby Open L1 after a run off, and now the Futurity.

“QT Devil Of Heaven is a great horse”, he says. “He is every day the same. He was getting better and better every day this week . I really like him! I would like to thank the owner Jan Tobias Kock for letting me show this super horse, Rudi Kronsteiner, Marco Pettinari and all the Ambrosini team. This Futurity is super- it was my first time here, and everything is great.”

Two riders tied for the Reserve Futurity Championship L2 and L1 scoring a 214 each: Christian Possetto aboard the stallion Il Be Automatic (Magnum Chic Dream x Hickadora) for owner Quarter Dream SRL and Gal Grahelj aboard the stallion Walla Whiz A Dun It (Walla Walla Whiz x The Bun Is Dun) for owner Katja Zrimsek.
