Tillman Reclaims Riders Cup Lead

     Brock Tillman doesn't like being second!

     After surrendering the lead in the Riders Cup point standings last week to Link Webb, Tillman racked up 820 points in five calsses at The Walking For Charity Horse Show in Wartrace to reclaim the lead with 2,890 points as of April 19, 2006.  Link picked up 290 points at the same show and is in second, only 70 points behind.

     Tillman has lead the standings three of the first four weeks.  Webb won the inaugural Riders Cup last year.  Third place  belongs to Knox Blackburn with 2,720 points while Nathan Clark is fourth with 2,280 and Herbert Derickson and Dick Peebles are tied for fifth with 2,220 points.

     The Riders Cup is in its second year and is a joint program of the Walking Horse Report and the Walking Horse Trainers' Association.  Last year $60,000 was awarded in the program.  The official standings are available at and in each issue of The Report.
