2005: WPCA Equine Outfit of Excellence Champion Right Leader
The 2005 WPCA Outfit of Excellence Champion Right Hand Leader is Luke Tournier’s Smooth Device. In 2005 as an 11 year old bay gelding, “Smoothy”, as he is know at the Tournier Camp, along with his regular partner Port, helped Luke to one of the most impressive campaigns in recent memory. His 24 top 5 runs, as well as 6 first place day money runs on the tour, propelled Luke to Championship Final heats at the Ponoka Stampede, Klondike Chuckwagon Derby, and to Luke’s first WPCADodge Pro Tour show win at the Red Deer Chuckwagon Championship. “Smoothy” also helped lead the unforgettable 10 day charge at the Calgary Stampede, winning the Richard Cosgrave Memorial Award for the Top Aggregate time on night nine, and following that up by taking the Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Championship heat on night ten.
