The short round Semi Finals consisted of the top 33 barrel racers from the long round split into three performances, Thursday (10), Friday (10) and Saturday (13). The top ten of the Semi Final performances then advanced to Sunday's RFD-TV The American Finals in Arlington, TX. Pozzobon's Semi Final short round run Saturday afternoon was yet again another solid run placing her 7th with a 13.894 and advancing her to the RFD-TV The American Finals in the AT&T Stadium at Arlington, TX.
Pozzobon made it through the qualifying rounds so she was eligible for the extra chance at a piece of the $1 Million dollar pot in Sunday's finals. Sunday's final format consisted of the top 10 qualifying runs (Carman's position) and 10 select invited contestants (World Champions etc.) all vying for 4 positions to run in the shootout round the same day for the RFD-TV The American title!
Carman and Ripn' Lady entered the alley as we have seen them do a hundred times here in Canada; calm, focused and as one. It looked like any other day for them as Ripn' Lady ate up every barrel with confidence. A mere brush on the backside of the third barrel took them out of advancing to the final four. We talked with Carman and she was extremely happy with how Ripn' Lady handled the entire week and she already has her sights set on a repeat appearance in 2019! Watch all three runs here!
