After leading the go-round with a 220.5 on Dual Catolena, Arlan Kannas came back to win $2,000 Limited Rider finals at the 6666 Ranch NCHA Eastern National Championships Sunday.

The 6-year-old mare, bred by Tim Brewer, is owned by Judy Livingston of Eutaw, Alabama. Dual Catolena is by High Brow Cat out of DPS Lenas Lucinda, with more than a million dollars in earnings under her first two dams.

Kannas, from Ralph, Alabama, took home more than $7,000 for his win.

Reserve champion Widows May Play is a 9-year-old Widows Freckles mare owned by Cody and Jim Young and shown by Lance Cooper of Bucyrus, Kansas. Cooper also rode the mare as one of the top qualifiers for the Junior Youth finals.

The show continues in Jackson, Mississippi through March 16.
