AF Big Bucks has now won the last five consecutive years of the Mustang Memorial 50 mile race... this year he did it in 4 hours and one minute, with an exciting race- off at end. This was Pam Weidel´s personal finale on him for 50s. Bucks had foxhunted two weeks before and of course he was top 1/3 at W.E.G. (30th of 101 starters, he had a stone bruise 30 days out and couldn't do a tune up or he would have possibly been in the top 5 winners). "He is awesome," says Pam "I am honored to own such a fine animal."

Mustafa Tehrani of India aboard the Weidel owned and trained horse AF Big Bucks qualified for the WEG (World Equestrian Games) Endurance Championships held in Kentucky on September 26th, 2010. Mustafa aboard AF Big Bucks just finished his 3 competitions, a 75 mile FEI (Tie for the 1st place) and in his next 75 mile FEI (placed 1st), also placed 5th in his first 100 mile FEI competition in March 2010 along with Valerie Kanavy.

Mustafa and Bucks are the leading pair* in the US Endurance Competitions in their weight category. (*Endurance News - June 2010 Awards Standings)


A Sampling of Outstanding Endurance Horses, Riders & Finishes

**Tee Whiz PW was a phenomenal horse, was already Graded Stakes placed on the racetrack, then the winning three day rookie horse at the Biltmore ride. "After the Biltmore, I dropped him off at Delaware Park on my way back home, and I told trainer he was tired and to scratch him from a race he was entered in for that Tuesday. She didnt scratch him and I went to watch race and he WON!! That little 6 furlong race was a cinch for him after doing a three day 100... he was wonderful. He also won the ARAM Sahara Stake in Minnesota at Canterbury, after doing a 30 mile CTR. I felt like I won the Kentucky Derby."

**AF Big Bucks (photo right, © Genie Stewart-Spears, GenieSS, Inc.) earned $32,383 on the racetrack, and in endurance top tenned in 24 of his 29 rides, and finished 1st in 14 of them with 4 best conditions. AF Big Bucks is Weidel's top endurance horse, multi-winner of several 50 and 55 mile endurance races and multi Best Condition earner. In his latest tie winning time of 5 hrs and 50 minutes, he also earned the prestigious award of BEST CONDITION by 31 points. This was the Goethe Forest ride in Florida with rider/farrier Mustafa from the India Team for the World Endurance Games.

**Special recognition goes to Sandra Fretelliere and the wonderful mare Mona Tika PW who completed 680 miles in 4 seasons: 6 top 10s, 4 second places, one win at 50 miles, 2 high vet scores and a completion of the Vermont 100... all this before she turned 9.

Mona Tika PW, by the Weidel Boxwood Farm stallion Barkon and out of Topaz Ku by SX Champion, was bred by Pamela Weidel.

**Pam Weidel also won the USET Festival of Champions in 2003 on Mount Adams. He was an ex-racehorse that she originally bought for a dressage prospect, and he is still the reigning champion. "It was POURING cats and dogs that day... river rising and the race was shortened to 67 miles because of dangerous rivers they didn't want us to cross. My other horse Sambet I acquired off the California track was second with my visiting German rider."

**Gotcha Covered PW (Wiking x Bygosh Bygolly) was a winning racehorse and now a very successful endurance horse and great with youths. He won the 2009 Triple Crown Junior Championship in endurance... at age 14. He was second at festival of champions in 2002 and got best condition over champion Valerie Kanavy's horse. Gotcha Covered PW also won the 2002 USET 55 mile Championship. See info about his dam ByGosh Bygolly and her foal.

**Sambet was later sold to Stephen Rojek, who was named the recipient of the 2009 Maggy Price Endurance Excellence Award, given out annually to the Endurance Rider who earns the most points in a competition year at designated FEI Endurance competitions. He won the Ocala CEI3* with Sambet and had top 10 finishes at the Williston CEI2* and the Morriston CEI3* (both in Florida) and at the Chester CEI3* in Georgia.

**Keep your eyes on a new endurance campaigner, Pam's homebred Getcha Good PW, with 2 firsts and a second finish out of his 4 rides, including a best condition.

**Jennifer Townes owns the Barkon son Bestof Kin PW, bred by Pam Weidel, and has done a very nice job with him. This 2001 grey gelding is an amazing animal, out of the mare Bounding Betsy by Tiki Sahiber Ku.
