In a special presentation during the BFA World Championship Futurity , Future Fortunes honored a legend in the sport of barrel racing….Kenneth Springer.
Kenneth began his career in 1970 at the Texas Barrel Racing Association Futurity. From traveling with the likes of Nelda Patton and Vickie Adams to rodeos to film their runs on video tape, to capturing Charmayne James’s bridleless run at the Wrangler National Finals, his meticulous attention to detail and passion for the sport has made him the industry’s premier photographer and a dear friend to all its players.
Future Fortunes is proud to have Kenneth Springer as the first person named as a Future Fortunes Legend.

In Memory 1978 - 2001
You have given so much in what seems such little time. The autumn of your years has passed so quickly, as though in a moment. Your winter is upon us, your grand flight so near. As you have given unselfishly, I will do the same. I will give you, my friend, the departure you have so earned. I owe you your dignity. I owe you that. I love you and I miss you, Red.
