TEMECULA — Nicolas Barthelemy relocated his training barn early this year to Moorpark, but once place you can still find the talented trainer is atop the standings at the end of the day.

Barthelemy was one of the stars of the 2018 Southern California Reined Cow Horse Association’s Jimmy Flores, Sr. Spectacular, held May 18-20 at Casner’s Ranch.

Barthelemy, riding Manuel Rojo’s WRS Shiney Diamond (WR This Cats Smart x Shiney Miss Hickory), outscored the field in the $1,000-added Open Hackamore Spectacular. In another prestigious aged-event class at the Jimmy Flores, Sr. Memorial, the $1,000-added Open Bridle Spectacular, Barthelemy rode Joel Jewett’s Im Smooth N Smart (Smooth As A Cat x Vandalena) to the reserve title behind Jason Grimshaw on Lauren Boychuk’s Mister OMG (One Time Pepto x Sallie B Badge). Barthelemy and Im Smooth N Smart also won the Open Bridle class.

Grimshaw, based in Goodyear, Ariz., and Boychuk both were stars in their own right. The trainer also finished third in the Open Bridle Spectacular on Barbara Truex’s Nic It Starlight (Nic It In The Bud x Okie Starbella), and Boychuk rode her Ima Miss N Texas (Yellow Roan Of Texas x Ima Miss N You) to wins in the Non Pro LImited Spectacular and the Non Pro Limited class.
