The Barrel Racing Blog is proud to announce that APRA 2010 Champion Barrel Racer, Finals Champion and Horse of the Year winner Laura Lee Thomas is working on answering some questions for us that will be posted in an upcoming series and profile on the Union City, Penn. cowgirl. Thomas took the APRA by storm in 2007 and again this year aboard Verily Six Bugs, a 2002 bay stallion owned by Rita Gambino. “Tanner,” the 15.2 stallion who won the 2006 AQHA High Point Barrel Racing Stallion, is by Packin Sixes out of Miss Emma Pyron, a daughter of Bugs Alive in 75. Thomas and Tanner are currently #7 in the IPRA World Standings, and they pair will be heading to St. Tite to dual it out at the biggest IPRA rodeo of the year before the IFR.
