Doug Williamson and Docs Soula Win NRCHA Derby


Doug Williamson won the 2007 NRCHA Derby ChampionshipPerforming what many knowledgeable spectators labeled a picture-perfect fence work, Doug Williamson, riding for D & S Quarter Horses of Terrebonne, Ore., clinched the National Reined Cow Horse Association Derby Championship on Docs Soula this past weekend.
Williamson, a veteran champion, put together a 660.5 total score to win the derby by eight points.

Williamson is a two-time NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion with multiple other titles to his credit. However, he says this win is special to him because of Docs Soula (Soula Jule Star x Docs Hickory Nut), who he believes is the best horse he’s ever trained and shown.
Prior to the Snaffle Bit Futurity, Docs Soula was injured and couldn’t compete. Since recovering from the injury, the horse has had multiple Reserve Championships and has won almost $60,000, but never won a major event.
Docs Soula finally got a big win this weekend, and Williamson got a Bob’s Custom Saddle, a C.R. Morrison trophy and a check for $40,090.
