Success for Stewart at Good Time$ (April 1, 2009) — The 6th annual Good Time$ Futurity held March 27-29, 2009, in Memphis, Tenn., met with resounding success. Dan Shirey and Linda Hafner’s annual event was especially good to three female futurity barrel racing super stars—Jolene Stewart, of Springer, Okla., LaTricia Duke, of Anson, Texas and Kassie Mowry, of Dublin, Texas. Between the three of them, these ladies laid claim to over half of the total $174,965 payout—with Stewart earning $35,886, Duke $30,070 and Mowry $21,058.
