P AGE 2 R OPERS S PORTS N EWS J ANUARY 2019 By Tanya Randall www.BarrelRacingReport.com Records like to fall for Cotulla, Texas, barrel racer Hai- ley Kinsel. Thanks in large part to her wickedly fast 7-year-old mare DM Sissy Hayday (“Sis- ter”), Kinsel set a new single- year earnings record for barrel racing with her $350,700 World Championship. “I think this might have been one of the toughest barrel races that I’ve ever seen,” said Kin- sel. “We had such a great group in the Top 15—the nicest la- dies out there with incredible horses.” Her own incredible mount, Sister, was named AQHA/ WPRA Horse of the Year and honored as the Horse With The Most Heart, by her peers. The Dillon Mundorf-bred mare, out of Royal Sissy Irish, by Royal Shake Em, gave her sire PC Frenchmans Hayday his second WPRAWorld Champion. Kinsel said she wanted to thank “all my family and friends, my vet and my shoer, everyone that has given us a place to stay throughout the year, everyone that’s given us an encouraging word, the rodeo fans who have kept this alive, everyone that has had Sister and my best interest in mind.” How The World Was Won After Labor Day Weekend, Sister got a vacation until the first of October. The only runs she’d made prior to the WNFR were an cruise-through exhi- bition on Thanksgiving Week- end and one run the following weekend at a jackpot en route to Las Vegas. With Sister having owned last year’s WNFR—setting a jaw-dropping arena record of 13.11 and raising the NFR earn- ings benchmark to $189,365— Kinsel used the first mandatory barrel practice to get the mare comfortable with the set up again. “Knowing that she’d been there before, I just trotted and let her see everything and get relaxed in the alley. I mainly wanted her to relax and get comfortable with everything.” As the No. 1 barrel racer going into the WNFR, Kinsel was first gunner in the first round.
