The Inaugural Five Star Futurity A Huge Success
The Five Star Futurity held its inaugural futurity and open horse show on September 1-2, 2007 at Fonner Park in Grand Island, Nebraska.  The event had an exceptional turnout and classes were tough.  Outside of the ring, the exhibitors had it easy as they were treated with a free BBQ on Friday night, a breakfast buffet on show mornings, popcorn all day and a free Five Star Futurity t-shirt. 

The Five Star Secret, a 2007 Reserve World Champion weanling halter stallion, was donated to the Five Star Futurity by Wild Basin Ranch.  The colt was given away in a drawing to eligible exhibitors.  The colt was won by Debbie Kurtzbein of Montevideo, Minnesota.  The Hi-Point Palomino Pleasure Horse Saddle Winner was Solid Gold Levis, an AQHA gelding sired by The Golden Deck.  The 2 Year Old Snaffle Bit Do Over Class Champion was Touched by Diamonds, an APHA Gelding sired by Bearly A Diamond.

Plans are already underway for the 2008 Five Star Futurity.  The goals are to double everything- the number of stallions, the prize money, and the entries.  The Five Star Futurity is hoping to have 232 stallions on the nomination list for the 2008 Futurity and hand out over $60,000 in cash and prizes.  The nomination list is already started with the first stallion, Mr Big Zipper of Hatch's Quarter Horses, being nominated back less than 24 hours of the end of the inaugural Five Star Futurity.  A total of 10 stallions have since been renominated.  In addition, Wild Basin Ranch has already promised yet another world class colt or filly by a great halter stallion.  The futurity is looking for a sponsorship of a performance type foal so that equal recognition can be given to the halter and performance horse industries.
