Link Webb apparently didn't like sharing the lead in the Rider's Cup and did something about it.  Last week, Link and Jackie McConnell were tied with 3,400 points each but after this past weekend Link has taken a 50 point lead.

   Webb now has 3,990 points in 25 classes while McConnell has 3,940 in 22 classes.  Prior to this weeks standings, Webb had shown in 21 classes while McConnell had answered the bell 19 times.

   Third place remains in the hands of Know Blackburn with 2,700 points in 16 classes.  Blackburn increased his point total by 690 points over last week.

   The program attracted 90 qualified trainers and 56 have already earned points in the program.  The program will pay out to the top 25 places at year end.
