Lockhart and Conrado take home Round 5 Wins in Barrel Racing at the 2017 National Finals Rodeo

Lisa Lockhart and Ivy Conrado take Round 5!

What a fun round, it was great to see the ladies decked out in their pink for Tough Enough To Wear Pink night and not as much ground trouble. All horses stayed up right, so I consider that a success!
Lisa and Louie had a flawless run. I have spoke to Lisa several times and like she always says, Louie gets faster as the Finals progress. She said it again last night.
“We were definitely trying to capitalize that we were on the top of the ground,” Lockhart said. “Louie has gotten stronger and stronger all week, and that is what he has done in the past. So, I was trying not to panic earlier in the week, so we just stuck with it and had faith that it was going to get stronger, and he finally has.” Lisa is setting fourth in the average.
Ivy and JLo had a beautiful run! They make such a pretty pair and it was great to see her win the round. 
“I never would have dreamed I’d be back here (as a round winner) with Lisa Lockhart,” Conrado said. “She’s everybody’s hero. I don’t even know what to say, I’m so excited.”
Ivy is having a great Finals, currently she is 2nd in the average. 
Hailey Kinsel is still killing it! She took third last night which moved her in to first place in the race for the RAM Top Gun Award. 
Brittany Tonozzi pulled out Freckles Ta Fame last night and had a great run! She ended the round 4th. 
Taci Bettis had a really nice run and she came in 5th. I LOVED how she was dressed, I thought she looked so classy last night! Oh and who noticed WPRA Cowgirl and multiple NFR qualifier Tammy Fischer helping Taci and Smash get in last night? Watch the video to hear about Taci and Tammy!

Nellie Miller and Sister had a super consistent run and came in 6th with a 13.75. I can’t say enough great things about Nellie’s mare. I absolutely love her, she just puts her head down and works and is so consistent. She is GAME ON every round! They are currently sitting third in the average.
GREAT round of barrel racing! Bring on Round 6! 
Here is Round 5 in case you missed it!
