Striken Sixes and owner Tammy Phillipo of Inola, Oklahoma, closed 2019 with the most total points earned in APHA’s Ram Paint Barrel Racing Incentive Program competition, landing them the coveted title of 2019 PBRIP High-Point Champion. But that wasn’t the duo’s only win—they also claimed the 2D championship, too.
Tammy will receive a Gist trophy buckle for her high-point win at the annual PRBIP awards presentation April 11 at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Striken Sixes is a 2014 brown tobiano gelding by To Painted For Tee and out of I Love You Bud Man (QH). Owned by Tammy since he was a yearling, Striken Sixes was bred by Traci Setter of Moran, Kansas.
